There’s a love-bomb in Downing Street!

Queensferry Crossing - The bridge unionist politicians love to hate… except when they’re claiming credit for it!

Many French philosophers were heavily influenced by Scots - Voltaire, for example, is credited with saying, “We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation.” So it’s interesting, to me at least, how often another classic French quotation, by Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, so accurately sums up the kind of Groundhog Day experience that we independistas seem to permanently live in - “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.” Aye, the more things change, the more they stay the same…

That’s precisely the feeling that set me off on a wee rant in last month’s issue - When is enough really enough? - and it reminded me of another couple of things which I wrote away back in 2011 - 9 years ago! - the gists of which are still relevant. To paraphrase Neil Diamond “Well except for the names and a few other changes, if you’re talking about now, the story’s the same one”…

Aye, the more things change, the more they stay the same…

Voltaire - “We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation”
