GUEST,Observer Lyr Add: Scottish Brexit or remain (26) RE: Lyr Add: Scottish Brexit or remain 21 Sep 18

"Let's stick to commenting on the song. I deem it a fine statement of a respectable set of views, whether or not we agree with those views." - Richard Mellish

By all means Richard let's comment on the song:

Tune: Gordon Broon's Body lies a mouldering in his grave. [Last I knew Gordon Brown, apart from Theresa May the worst Prime Minister the UK has ever known is very much alive - But it indicates McLeans grip on reality - The tune he uses is The Battle Hymn of the Republic - I thought such a talented musician and song writer would have known that]

The Tories hate the Muslims
[Really?], and the Labour hate the Jews [But DtG, pfr, Steve Shaw, et al keep telling us that this is not so, it is a figment of every sentient human being's imagination?].
The English hate the SNP
[Well oddly enough McLean they don't. If Scotland wants "independence" and rule from Brussels all they have to do for IndyRef2 is allow the "English" to vote on it and Scotland will find itself out of the Union on its arse in a trice], the greens all hate the blues [Musical reference?].
Boris hates remainers and he disnae want tae lose
[No old chap he doesn't hate them he just backs what the electorate of the UK voted for - that is what is called respecting democracy]
So Brexit marches on.
[Correct the UK will leave the EU on the 29th March 2019]
Glory, glory what a Helluva mess we're in,
[No we are not]
Glory, glory are we oot or are we in?
We're fa'en owre a cliff edge
[What cliff McLean? Only 6% of the companies in the UK trade with the EU, as far as Scotland goes trade with the EU is worth 12.7bn, trade with the rest of the UK is worth 48.7bn, tell us McLean which side is Scotland's trade, industry and commerce's bread buttered on?], will we sink or will we swim? [Benefit junkie Scotland, independent under the SNP will definitely sink, they've wracked up 13bn in debt in three years and Scotland's 2.5m tax payers have no way of paying it back. Your independent Scotland will be worse off than Greece if your idiotic ideas come to fruition]
If Brexit marches on.

We'll tighten up oor borders, an you'll no get in or oot,
[Now who exactly has stated this?]
Nae foreigners tae dig the tatties, nor tae pick the fruit.
[All depends McLean if the Scots want their chips and deep fried Mars Bars they might just have to get off their arses and work instead of fawning over bloody idiotic parodies (which raises the question why can't you write your own tunes?)]
Nae foreign nurses either
[Really? where and when has anybody said that. or is this just more politically motivated misleading propaganda?], we just dinnae gie a hoot
If Brexit marches on.
Glory, glory whit a Helluva mess we're in
Glory, glory are we oot or are we in?
We're fa'en owre a cliff edge, will we sink or will we swim?
But Brexit marches on.

The farmers and the fishin' folk think life will a' be swell
The bureaucrats in Brussels they can jump or go tae hell.
But when the cash fae Euorope goes, whit story will they tell?
[If VAT remains at exactly the same level not one single subsidy needs to change and the UK can pocket our current net contribution - unless you hadn't realised McLean the UK puts more into the EU than it gets out that is a verifiable fact, we are the EU's second highest net contributor - still it is normal for you not to let fact get in the way of your hate filled whinging propaganda]
If Brexit marches on.
Glory, glory whit a Helluva mess we're in
Glory, glory are we oot or are we in?
We're fa'en owre a cliff edge, will we sink or will we swim?
But Brexit marches on.

Theresa May an Corbyn are a pair o' Brexiteers,
They couldnae gie a docken for oor worries or oor fears,
It's time for INDEPENDENCE or it's goin' tae end in tears
If Brexit marches on.
[Oddly enough McLean what with all this talk about the "Chequers" Deal and BRINO, at the next election and IndyRef2 I am actually thinking of voting SNP and YES as that will guarantee that Scotland at least will be OUT of the EU on what all the witterers call a "Hard Brexit". Then provided all the other EU member states agree unanimously to Scotland's application for membership it will be 2040 at the earliest that Scotland will be able to join]
Glory, glory whit a Helluva mess we're in
Glory, glory are we oot or are we in?
We're fa'en owre a cliff edge, will we sink or will we swim?
When Brexit marches on.

Now then Richard let's see if the mods let this stand, I strongly doubt it as they really do hate the idea of free speech, they prefer to run an "Echo Chamber" where everyone is in agreement. In the above I have only commented on the song. But I can guarantee that this post will be responded to in insult and personal attack with not one contributor addressing the points raised

One further comment and this is on the author of the above untitled song. Isn't it wonderfully altruistic of him to wish "INDEPENDENCE" on Scotland and the Scots, while he, a declared Scottish Nationalist Republican Marxist, no doubt will continue to live and work in LONDON.
