What They Ain’t A Sayin
They say they want independence – yet deny these same freedoms to Scotland.
They say Scotland had a free vote on independence two years ago –
But this is not the truth and we had no democratic free press at all
(YES with no mainstream media ( TV, radio, paper press) went from 28% to 45%.)
The Yes side was instead ordinary people, a grassroots campaign
and the ‘British story’ is not one Scotland identifies with or understands anymore.
In any shape or form.
They say they want sovereignty, yet deny it to Scotland. I do not Believe the Brexiteers.
They say they want more jobs and put their faith in Westminster (!!) WHY?
It is the system that is rotten, (even the building is crumbling)
They say they want closed borders but an open Brexit.’
What do they want? Do they even know.
They say they want peace and sell more weapons than anyone,
They say they want ties with Europe, yet cuts these ties.
They say they want democracy, yet don’t allow the votes.
On our TVs we watch as children are bombed in Syria. What is going on? What is going on in Russia?
They say they want a revolution, yet hark back to the past – Britannia, empire,
To have democracy, a free Press is necessary.
In the UK we allow Murdoch no restriction and complete control.
They sold off our ships, our people, our oil – to the highest bidders.
They sold off our confidence , our dreams and hopes too.
On those long dark nights.
We kept our stories alive through our songs, our festivals, our art and our imaginations.
We imagined better too.
We looked over the seas and over the far skies and we looked northwards.
We kept our sprits and words alive.
People in Scotland want to be a small successful, democratic more equal nation,
Not an imperial power ruling the waves.
We want to be a voice of peace, reconciliations and fairness in the world.
To be truly international we must be national first.
There are more Scots and Gaelic in Canada (14m) than here in Scotland. (5m)
