Illicit Scottish Songs. Your move Alex.

Here’s a few Scottish songs that might put you in Jail under the new law.

These songs are openly seditious to the Crown, openly anti English and one openly slates King William of Orange. As a Scotsman I’m proud of these songs. However this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as oppression in Scotland is concerned. Scotland got totally raped in the same way as Ireland did by the English and their home grown collaborators (now known as the Conservative and Unionist Party ).

How can an SNP Government sanction an attack on Irish folk songs while Scotland’s peoples sing the same songs about fighting oppression ?

Scot’s and Irish are one Celtic people, we are not like the Welsh who allowed themselves to become a Principality of England. The Scots and the Irish have a proud tradition of fighting the oppressors and I’d go as far to say that’s why we also share a Socialist outlook. Therefore Irish folk songs of struggle against English and then British oppression have the same legitimate right to be sung in public just like these Scottish songs.

Alex Salmond and his lackies have opened a can of worms in regard to “Rebel” and “Illicit” songs. If they pass this bill then they will have to prove to the UK Supreme court, European courts and possibly the UN that Irish rebel songs are inflammatory and Scottish rebel songs are not. This is how far we may need to go if this so called “Bigot Bill” (as termed by BBC Scotland) becomes law.

Best of luck Alex. Try and explain why these songs are not offensive to somebody.

  3. Agree totally with your point.
    However,” Home grown collaborators” being conservative and unionist, Thats ridiculous. Much more accurate would be half a century of Scottish Unionist Labour collaborators.
    Scottish Labour have over the years been the most rabid pro British of them all.
    In their skewed world its perfectly okay and right for Ireland to have sovereignty and Republicanism but not us poor stupid Scots.

    Hail Hail

  5. Are the SNP actually attacking ‘Irish folk songs’ though? It seems to me they are not keen on songs in support of the provos being sung at the game. Most Irish folks songs are not about the provos. There are plenty songs in the Irish rebel tradition we can sing and any detractors wouldn’t have a leg to stand on.

    1. Well I know the likes of Christine Graham and Rosanna Cunningham are not keen on the Boy’s of the Old Brigade which has nothing to do with the Provos. The general feeling I and others have picked up is in general they would rather we did not sing any Irish songs. Obviously it comes down everyone’s personal opinion of what and what is not an “offensive song”.
