Britain's Secret War: Tartan Terrorism and the Anglo American State.

By Andrew Murray Scott & Iain MacLeay Sutherland

Errata by Donald Anderson

Scxottish Republican and Freedom songs.

Robert Burns, whose grandfaither was from Stonehaven was out in the Jacobite rebellion, took the short step from Jacobite to Jacobin. MacDiarmid said he was Republican when sober and Jacobite when drunk.

Would you prefer us to post Hanoverian songs. Most English folk songs I know are tuneless, boring, Imperialist, or pornographic about maidens and threshing machines. Not that Burns didn't do bawdy songs. Most of his political songs, such as a Man's Man, were not published here till after his death

Remember Labour, who enjoy the support of the very British left are Loyalist/Royalist/Unionist/Imperialst and anti socialist. Haven't heard you criticise them?

I don't know of anyone in the SNP that reads the People Friend and Supports the Jelly Bean.

We are not millionaires like them nor have the support of the right wing Unionist meejah; Con Dem Labs, UKIP, BNP. HF, EDL, LOL, C{GB, etc, etc, etc.
