Dear Reader

Our front cover for this issue was designed by Stewart Kerr Brown and represents Boris Johnson as a character mix of John Bull and the hellishly scary clown ‘Pennywise’ from the Steven King novels. It is extremely diicult to comprehend just how the UK have been lumbered by two of the most inept BritNat politicians ever to be our future PM. Be afraid, be very afraid! :-) Included in this months issue is an excellent article by Dundee’s own Gordon Craigie who has writen about the Myths and outright lies surrounding Darien and Scotlands colonial ambitions. Robbie Dunwoodie has penned an excellent article on iScot’s own Billy Kay (who also concludes his serialisation of his book - the History of the Scots Language)

Before I sign of, may I ask you to visit our appeal on page 82 - we’re big on ambition and short on suicient resources - if you could help out I’d be eternally grateful. Thank you for supporting oor wee magazine, we never forget you have a choice! Yours aye Ken McDonald, Managing Editor
