How the Irish are really Scottish

I came across my old pal David Stokes recently, a soft-hearted Irishman who used to drink in the Barrowlands in the '80s and we got to talking and I said to him that he loves Scotland more than most Scots I know so why doesn't move up here. And never a man to answer a question without a rhapsody at least he described a drinking adventure in Edinburgh that ended up in Glen Coe. and I listened to him and decided that the Irish are really Scots cast away on the biggest of the islands of our west coast. He's down in London and I promised I'd put in a word for him when i could. He's writing novels and stuff these days and has a blog on theguestinformant | Just another WordPress.com site

If we go independent we'll have to bring the Irish with us! Luke!

Only if we can leave Daniel O'Donnell behind! Christy Moore etc would be fine.
