First there was the visit to Poland, and the day trip to Auschwitz. One of the most important historic sites in the world. A place where unspeakable horrors were carried out. Not exactly the place for cheap publicity stunts by a politician. But Scotland's First Minister decided to hitch herself to a school trip to the infamous Nazi death camp.
Every time I write something about the SNP, I optimistically think there's nothing more to say. They couldn't possibly surpass the idiocy previously shown, but they can and they do. And as always, I am proved wrong.
I know I have written several pieces on the subject of the SNP and its effect on the life of Scotland and its political and people. So I decided to take a break from Scottish politics for a wee while. Unfortunately, I have no option but to write a little bit more about the present status of the SNP attempts to push for a second independence referendum and sundry other matters. Deep breath and here goes.....
The music I'm about to describe is not for the faint of heart. This is muscular rock music, original and raw, but it can also be melodic and thoughtful. A fusion of high energy rock, electronic, jazz, classical, tinged with, what I hear as almost Celtic music. Confused? Wait and I will try to explain why I come to this conclusion.
