Quite frankly, I find it really odd in this year 2014, we’re commemorating the 100th anniversary of the First World War, we honour those who fought and died together. Heroes everyone. Why then would the SNP want to brake up the union? I don’t understand. Really, I don’t understand.
I’ve a strong feeling that we’re witnessing a form of Fascism at work (it’s not just Nationalism, it’s more than that), and that it’ll end badly! [edit: 22.10.14 – it’s not over yet!]
The place of the foreigner is within the Lowlands…
As a net is made up by a series of knots, so everything in this world is connected by a series of knots. If anyone thinks that the mesh of a net is an independent, isolated thing, they are mistaken. It is called a net because it is made up of a series of connected meshes, and each mesh has its place and responsibilities in relation to other meshes.
When the net is torn we mend it. There are no foreigners. Who’s the foreigner?
