Wings Over Scotland


Something borrowed, something blue

Posted on January 01, 2014 by

So here we are, then. 80% of the referendum campaign is over. It’s 2014. The next nine months are when we’ll either win or lose it all. Time to get to work.

    1. Thistle says:

      All the best for 2014

    2. Morag says:

      Happy New Year Stu, and everyone.  And a toast to the Year of Independence.

    3. Craig says:

      A very happy New Year to Rev. Stuart, Scott and all contributors, posters and readers of Wings Over Scotland.

      2014, the most important year in Scotland’s history for more than 300 years, has started.

      I am sure there will be a majority democratic vote for Independence on 18th September.

      But I am extremely concerned that the British stablishment will rig it.

      There is not a single former colony where the British establisment has not used black art operations to prevent Independence and to subvert it after.

      Scotland IS the ‘jewel in the crown’, in other words a cash cow, and there is no depth that the British establishment will not sink to to prevent her from breaking free from its clutches.

      Rev. Stuart, make sure you have a Plan B for your own safety and for a Wings Over Scotland in exile.

      Sorry for the pessimistic note, but we will never get this opportunity again if we miss it in 2014.

    4. Pedro says:

      Scotland is a country! 
       
      It’s my country. 
       
      Vote Yes. 
       
      Happy New Year! 

    5. Emma says:

      Happy New Year to you Stu and all at Wings. Thank you for all you are doing. This is our year, Scotland’s year. Good luck to all. X

    6. faolie says:

      Happy New Year everyone. And what a year it’s going to be! Just think what this year’s Hogmanay’s going to be like 🙂

    7. callum says:

      Did anyone catch Rab C Nesbit’s comment about Scotland providing the common, but London receiving the Wealth!!  This is going to be a good year to be alive.

    8. Richard Fidel Keel says:

      Did the Marquis of Montrose ever rebuild his Grand Casino, the gambling house that died with an awful sound?

    9. rabb says:

      Happy New Year to one and all.
       
      9 months to go. Let’s do this thing!

    10. Morag says:

      I’m sitting in the house for the bells alone, for the first time ever.  I’ve never been out of my home in Scotland for the bells in my life, not even for the 24 sets of bells where my actual address was in England.  It was always a big deal in my family.  Always be in your own home for the bells.  But the tradition is dying, and I don’t think anyone is going to come past and first-foot me tonight.
       
      I know where the open house is in the village, and I’d be welcome, but I don’t really want to go out.  I just want to sit and think about it.  This is 2014.  It’s really here.
       
      If (when) we get the Yes vote, I hereby pledge to give up the old ways, and go to the clock and bring in the New Year out in the open with the rest of the heathen next year.

    11. moujick says:

      Happy New Year Folks. We can dae this…lets work oor socks off tae make shair we dae!!!!!

    12. faolie says:

      Ach Morag, away round and have a drink

    13. Fiona says:

      Happy New Year to you Stu, and everyone. 

      Drinking a very nice wee dram with my other half – and both of us feeling such promise and excitement about the coming year. 

      Let’s do this.

    14. Morag says:

      Nah, got a drink in my hand right now, and it’s cold out there.  Got you lot, too.  🙂

    15. JLT says:

      Happy new year folks. All the best on this very historic of years. Enjoy!

    16. Les Wilson says:

      Happy New Year to all from Wings, and all the posters who love the site.
      Time, 00.42 and just pulled the PC out, just had to say this. I watched “Only an Excuse” on BBC one prior to the bells. You know the show, the send up of football that is well liked. We I am furious with the BBC, they diverted from the usual football to ridicule A. Salmond, get in that Scotland was rubbish ( via rubbish sketch ), even made Bannockburn a rubbish thing along with a supermarket trolley in a burn. Also other things.Pure and dirty propaganda because many would be watching it. The most brazen, and quite sickeningly obvious charade yet from the BBC. I think even those who might vote NO, will also be taken aback by this. Absolutely disgusting stuff, just shows what they really think of Scotland. Or is it just me being touchy? Disgraceful. 

    17. balgayboy says:

      Happy New Year to everyone. I’m looking forward to a great 2014 where I will be able to celebrate an personal aspiration and that the people of Scotland will be able to celebrate the joy of a forthcoming Independent nation. Let us all go for it.

    18. Rev. Stuart Campbell says:

      “Rev. Stuart, make sure you have a Plan B for your own safety and for a Wings Over Scotland in exile.”

      I’m already in exile, man.

    19. AnneDon says:

      Happy New Year! This is it! It’s going to be an exciting year, and in 12 months, we’ll be celebrating our first New Year of independence. Can’t wait!

    20. Morag says:

      I’ve been watching BBC Caesar!, and it’s been fine, if a little unadventurous.  I only switched over for a better look at the fireworks just after the bells.
       
      If BBC1 can make Phil and Ally (consummate musicians) sound like a tenth-rate boy band, I’m offski.

    21. JLT says:

      Hi Les. Picked up on it also. Every 2nd sketch was a dig at Scotland or Salmond. The program will be forgotten in the next few days. Just enjoy the night. 

    22. TJenny says:

      Hi Morag – I’m in the house on my own too – and having a great wee sing-a-long (adding to the noise of Edinburgh’s fireworks!) to Deacon Blue, The Proclaimers and Ray Davies et al on telly.  (You’re right about it being Baltic outside).  But as the Rev says on Twitter:
       
      ‘Spare a thought for our No friends tonight, folks. They haven’t the faintest clue how exciting this feels.’
       
      It’s true, I do feel a real exhilaration at the thought of what we can achieve in 2014 and beyond.
      Here’s tae us, wha’s like us 🙂

    23. J.A.Komensky says:

      Well this is it. 18th September 2014 and all to play for, in the sense of all or nothing. Happy New Year to all, ‘now’s the time and now’s the hour’.

    24. TJenny says:

      Oops – too late to edit ‘It’s’.

    25. Donald MacDonald says:

      Happy New Year all.
      Thought OAE was poor this year. Maybe running out of steam. Emili Sande on the Hootenany excellent. Proclaimers too.
      Having a Rabbie’s Porter, after a couple of Highland Parks.
      Big, big year. Can’t wait.

    26. Patrician says:

      Happy 2014 to everyone.  Yes FTW!

    27. Steve B says:

      Hi Rev. Stuart,
       
      Happy New Year! Thanks for everything you’ve done over the past year in informing and keeping morale up — and in the process entertaining your readership.
       
      I’ve only really become aware of Wings because of the publicity about your opinion poll a few months ago but now you are always my first point of reference.
       
      Good luck for the coming historic year  I’m sure it’ll be one we will be proud of.

    28. Thepnr says:

      Happy New Year folks.
       
      I’m really looking forward to 2014, I have a funny feeling that we may just be winning the argument.

    30. Seasick Dave says:

      Happy New Year from China, folks!
       
      Its going to be a momentous year and there can only be one outcome.
       
      Handbrake off and let’s go!

    31. Macart says:

      So this is what 2014 looks like?
       
      Cooooool. 🙂

    32. Dave McEwan Hill says:

      Just watched Chewing the Fat. Started witha master class from Karen Dunbar and I laughed all the way through it. I enjoyed allthe programmes tonight. The playwas funnt. Auld Lang Syne was excellent and OAE was much better than last year’s. I don’t think the format for bringing in the New Year from various points works very well however but its a worthy idea  but I was comfortable with it.
       
      Happy New Year to all
       
      My biggest difficulty in the next few months is going to be remaining polite when I am asked idiotic questions. 
       

    33. Thepnr says:

      Don’t know who is responsible for Only an Excuse and Chewing the Fat but I thought they were both good. Meebee just me 🙂

    34. Ann says:

      Happy New Year to one and all.  This is a huge big year for Scotland and the World will be watching closely.
       
      A great firework display with the Cross of St Andrew for all the world to see.
       
      DC telling us what to do in his  speech will not go down well.  The English, Welsh and Irish have no say in this.  It is the people of Scotland who will decide on the 18th September.
       
      I haven’t watched Only an Excuse for yonks.   Like Hogmanay Live it is way past it sell by date and should be binned along with Jackie Bird.
       
      Oh! how I miss Grampian TV.

      Take care everyone. Only two more practice runs at hogmanay/new year before it will be real.

      Let’s just dae it!

    43. Taranaich says:

      Happy New Year, all. This is the most important year of my life, not only because of the referendum, but because it marks the time where I finally put it all on the line and become a professional artist. It isn’t quite the all-or-nothing game the referendum is, but it feels like The Time, you know?
       
      @craig: There is not a single former colony where the British establisment has not used black art operations to prevent Independence and to subvert it after.
       
      Of course: what else can you call the 40% rule but black art operations intended to prevent anything that could lead to independence? What else can you call the complete rejection of the Scottish Covenant? What else can you call the truth behind the McCrone report, the classified Devolution papers, the obstruction of West Coast Oil exploration? Despite all the nonsense about devolution “killing nationalism,” they know fine well that the more powers a population has, the more they’ll question why they don’t have all of them.
       
      ‘Spare a thought for our No friends tonight, folks. They haven’t the faintest clue how exciting this feels.’
       
      I would feel sad, then I remembered that they’re essentially campaigning against the only feasible alternative to austerity, food banks, anti-immigration, anti-EU, capitalist, neo-liberal perpetuity. In a No vote, all of us are going to suffer – that’s what Westminster has made clear, with its promises to alter Barnett and increasing demands to remove Holyrood altogether, more cuts across the board, more wasting of precious resources on nuclear death machines. Do you think a No vote will result in leniency from Westminster? That this show of loyalty to the British State will result in more devolution, powers, freedom, when all we’ve seen from the last 30 years is nothing but cuts and derision and scorn? Ask the hostage if he believes petitioning to stay with his kidnapper rather than escape will protect him from being shot.
       
      But a Yes vote? A Yes vote means that even if we do suffer, at least it won’t be in the name of Trident, HS2, Austerity, privatisation, inequality, and all the other hideous iniquities which result from a chancellor who thinks money gained after brutal cuts constitutes a “recovery.” At least we won’t be wasting our money on a weapon which can only ever be used in spiteful, petty, worthless retaliation. At least we won’t be pouring our blood & oil revenue into the anti-democratic House of Lords and Westminster Elite. A struggle for a worthy cause is worth it: a struggle for the benefit of the scum at the top of society is not. And a Yes vote means that we are in a position to change that – and despite voting otherwise, those who voted No will be welcome to share our struggle for a better country, should they wish to remain.
       
      But know this: that we – that is all the people of Scotland, including No voters – will prevail. We won’t win because of a “natural” Yes vote, or because we’re going to wait for No to make that final colossal mistake which will leave the BT campaign in tatters. We’ll win because we have more people who believe, more people who work harder, more people who are willing to put everything on the line to make sure this happens. It won’t be an easy fight, but the difference is our struggle is worth it. The No campaign’s struggle is to retain the twisted, corrupt, hateful Westminster system in the hopes that they can change it, even if it means continuing the suffering and deaths of the disabled, the elderly, the frail, and the young.
       
      Our struggle is to ensure that the struggle is ours to make. Put it this way: you learn your father died. He was a hard working man, good, kind, generous, and we were sad to see him go. He worked incredibly hard at his job, and it was hard-going at times, but he kept working, because he needed to provide for his children. In one lifetime, he works for a good boss: imperfect, and one who made mistakes himself, but it was the boss he chose to work for, and the boss shared in the ups and downs of the job. In another, he works for an abusive boss who does none of the work, who he didn’t choose to work for, who pays him a pittance, and overworks him.
       
      Which job, which existence, do you think makes the struggle worthwhile?

    44. Morag says:

      Yeah, I should have been more assertive.  Insisted that a neighbour first-foot me.  Gone to Susan’s house.  But I’ve been busy.  You have no idea how much effort it takes to publish a book by 21st December, starting with a blank sheet of paper on 30th March.
       
      And I’m still a bit shaky from Lockerbie on the 21st.  Ended up crying my eyes out in church, not just for all these senseless deaths, but for the senselessness of what happened after that, which could have been averted by anyone with even half a brain who was paying attention.
       
      I can’t see forward.  Yes is a no-brainer.  We seem to have managed to figure it out in 2011.  Can we do the same this year?  We’re so close, after all these years of effort and believing in spite of everything.  Surely we can’t crash and burn now?

    45. Bubbles says:

      @ Les Wilson.
       
      I agree wholeheartedly.  The people I fell out with on facebook? Same battle. To hell with this respect crap.  I ain’t feeling no love baby. All we need is the truth. That will win it.

    46. gordoz says:

      All the above – but fuck the BBC !!!!!

      Stay cool babe.  We’re winning.

      Mind if I quote you? All of it basically.

    52. TJenny says:

      Morag – Now you’ve shed a tear for what’s gone by, time to look forward – we will do this. 
      Besides, there was someone on Jools Holland who said we are, unusually for new year, under a black moon and if you make a wish under a black moon it’s sure to come true. No idea who he was but not to pass up any opportunities, I braved the cold, stepped into the garden and wished for Independence. 
       
      Maybe see you on a balmier evening in The Caesar!nach or wherever the Edinburgh WoS night will be on 4th April.:-)

      Ian Smart drops yet another little race-themed turd for his friends, family and admirers to sniff and delight themselves with:

      “I see the genius Jenkins has announced a new group called Polish for Yes. Presumably you can Pledge your support.”

      Evidently there’s a pattern here.

    59. Mealer says:

      Happy new year everyone.

    60. Adrian B says:

      @ orpheuslyre
      Foreigners for Scottish Independence – there are millions around the globe that think Scotland should become a country again.
       
      Mr Smart is in a small minority that thinks we Scots should wait for Labour in 2015 to solve the worlds problems. NOTE – his brother has a better handle on real life.

    71. Les Wilson says:

      Oldnat 
      Do you not remember when this program was technically a satire show based on Football? Not imposed gutter politics with no chance of redress. I am not sure you were watching the same program as me. But they covered most points that BT say, and generally insulted Scots throughout. Nothing at all to do with the origins of the show, a classic BBC propaganda agenda riddled through it. Again, I do not know how you feel or how others feel, but I certainly do not like seeing My BBC licence fee squandered in actually insulting, well, us !

    72. Ken500 says:

      Any MSM outlet with which you do not agree, do not watch or buy. Boycott. Simple Don’t get angry just get even.

      A Happy New Year to one and all.
       
      And may we all look forward to an Independent Scotland, free to move forward towards a future where we decide the outcome, not Westminster.

    78. caz-m says:

      Happy New Year Rev and to all wings contributors.

      We have finally arrived at 2014. This is where the hard work really starts.

      The shear enthusiasm for a YES victory will give us the strength to get the message out there. Those undecided voters should be told of all the benefits of Independence.

      So whether it is by more leafleting, wearing badges, word of mouth, car stickers, flying flags or what ever way that you can think of, we must get that message out.

      It has been proven that once undecided voters get the proper information, then they do come over to YES.

      So the gloves are off. It’s time to start spreading the word.

      This is the biggest decision Scotland has ever had to make, and I will do all I can to make sure that she becomes an independent nation on 18th Sept 2014.

      And by coincidence, just got emailed that we are YES leafleting on Saturday morning.

      Can’t wait to get out there.

    79. Rev. Stuart Campbell says:

      Och, settle down, folks. Just caught up with OAE and the only offensive thing about it was how rank the impressions of the FM and Lamont were.

      Happy New Year folks.  It’s 2014, let’s create some history.

    82. Alba4Eva says:

      Just watched Only An Excuse… what a load of guff!
      Honestly, I am glad I don’t pay for that rubbish… if thats what the BBC passes off as satire nowadays!  OAE should stick to football, their attempt to satire Scottish politics was pathetic and straight out of the unionist smear book.
       
      Anyway happy new year everyone and stop paying the TV licence.

    83. Horacesaysyes says:

      Happy New Year tae ane an aw.
       
      And it’s up to us to ensure that 2014 is happiest year Scotland has ever had!

    84. Les Wilson says:

      REV OAE was always a football satire show, not a BBC propaganda platform, which it was last night. So sorry in this case I have to disagree, it was blatant and ugly. obviously I was not the only one to find it so. However, upwards and onwards, it would just be nice to have a level playing field, that is what Democracy SHOULD be about. 

    85. david says:

      Anyway happy new year everyone and stop paying the TV licence.
       
      ok, im on board with that

    86. CameronB says:

      LOL
       
      I have to say that the impression of Salmond was odd, it didn’t look like him or sound like him. It wasn’t all that harsh though and OAE normally do harsh. However, I think it is the No camp that should be spitting tacks. That impression of Lamont….Dear God! Ouch!

    88. Happy New Year to everyone, I’m so excited – 2014 best year ever you can feel it.

      Happy New Year All!
       
      Time for us all to pound the streets as well as the keyboard – serious business in hand.
       
      Some of the lovely Bjork with some good advice (thanks to National Collective for alerting me to this fine song):
       
      “declare independence
      don’t let them do that to you
       
      – justice –

      start your own currency
      make your own stamp
      protect your language”

      Happy New Year!
      In the coming months we need to work hard, stay positive, and keep our eyes on the prize. I’m confident we will.
      This time next year, we will be on the road to independence!

      Happy New Year Stu and everyone on this site. I’m not alone in thinking that Wings is our greatest resource in the media battle. I’m particularly proud that everyone on here works to maintain objectivity, decency and the positive vision of Scotland. This is why we’ll win.

      A Happy New Year to you Rev and all contributors wherever you are or your views one way or another!
      O/T how do you put up a picture (avatar?) with your name?

      Loved this one from the Scottish Scaremonger books page:

      ‘SNP accused!!!’ by E. Barnes – a journalist’s guide to impartial Scottish political reporting 

       
      Happy New Year everyone (except, obviously, Blair McDougall, Alistair Darling, Johann Lamont, Iain Davidson, etc., etc.)!

      Having been quite depressed STV and BBBC – found myself wishing for a repeat of Andy Stewart – a frisson of excitement has just run up my spine while reading the Rev and all the comments.
      Yippee!

      Standing making lunch for my family. Just watching a big tanker passing my window moving north through the Minch towards Sullom Voe to fill up with our precious oil, knowing that not much of the money will be coming back to Scotland. 

      So, not too wee, certainly not too poor and I hope not too stupid on Sept 18th.

      stu, I had to cancel the current standing order but have set up a SO for twice last years amount first payment should be made 6th Jan instead of normal second of the month. I just didn’t have the brains or skills to simply amend the original SO – or maybe it was just the banks process wasn’t easy to follow. I know you will keep up the fantastic work during 2014. Many, many thanks.

      Happy New Year everyone. Rev, many thanks for your hard work!

      Happy New Year from Aberdeen Rev! Just finished very Scottish Xmas and New Year up here and its very much 40% YES, 30% NO, 30% Don’t know. It gets heated with NO stuff like “but I don’t want border control, who’ll protect the oil rigs, how can you split families” etc  NO vote says “we are out of the EU and NATO” and a YES vote says “What?! Scotland is the North Atlantic.” Fun 
       
      Keep it coming!

      As usual I’m late to the party. 😆
       
      Hope every one had a great time last night.
      Wishing Stu and all the regulars of Wings a great and extremely fruitful new year. I hope all you hopes and dreams come true, especially that ONE dream we all have that has something to do with some sort of referendum thingy on 18th September this year! :P:

      Morag, just reached chap 7 and have enjoyed your analysis – quite an eye opener. Well done and I raise a glass to you.

    106. Taranaich says:

      @Morag: And by the way, I think I worship Taranaich.
       
      Well, he is the god of Thunder. 😛
       
      @Bubbles: Mind if I quote you? All of it basically.
       
      Don’t mind at all, go for it!
