|You have to ask yourself how Norway manages to feed its people|
and Scotland fails to. We have even more oil than they have.
It's notable too, that, although Norway is a lot colder than Scotland
they don't have anyone dying as a result of it whereas here
the story is somewhat different
Thanks to Richy, who is a friend of the lads who recorded it, I've had an email from Martin, one of the members of the band.
He explained that that particular video was a draft. It has now gone to have captions added to it explaining a bit about the background of the recording.
The fact is that these guys have recorded the song to raise money for food banks in their area.
It's that simple.
Too many people are starving where they live and they have decided to do something about it, using their talent.
The video is being annotated and the song will be released as a "commercial" venture, probably within the next week, so you will be able to buy it for download on iTunes or Amazon.
All the monies raised from the sale will be given to the food bank.
|Like the Queen opening a new bridge a beaming smile on his face|
The shame of it Mr Mundell. The shame of it.
The thought of kids going to bed with an empty stomach, or having to go to school hungry, is too horrible to contemplate. It's all the more repulsive when you know that there are people, some of whom are responsible for the mess that causes this hunger, who are dining in restaurants where the entrée costs more than a pensioner gets to live on for a week.
It physically repulses me that someone like Duncan Smith can be responsible for this and yet get away with charging you and me nearly £40 for his bloody breakfast! Shame there weren't bones in it.
Anyway, we have to confront it. We have to think about it no matter how painful.
What can we do about it? Liar Duncan Smith and the McVile creature have it sewn up. The poor will starve! The country will save money.
Well, inspired by guys who get organised, get arranging and rehearsing, get into a recording studio, record and make a video, get it annotated and out there, I know I'm resolved to do more.
And no, Munguin and I will not be re-recording "How much is that Munguin in the Window?" (Although it's an idea and if we got enough requests...).
|But somehow we can still afford nuclear weapons we will never use|
And we can buy "Caledonia" when it comes out, and hopefully, in numbers, get it into the download charts. Not only will the money be going to help people who have been rendered hungry, at least in part, by the Westminster government's policies, but we will be raising the "Scotland" brand at this crucial time when we have a chance to rid ourselves of the Duncan Smiths of this world forever. What bliss.
This is a piece from one of our readers, Bloo Choon, which should bring tears to your eyes. Thanks for putting it up Bloo. Lovely chilled music to go with it too.
