For this country is yours
This country is mine
Our future decide
By the strength of your mind
Oh come let's rejoice
That we have a choice
To be a nation
It never ceases to amaze me just how much talent we have. And in these days of excellent small recording studios, Youtube, iTunes and Amazon, everyone of us can make our own music and have a hit, with no help from EMI or Virgin. Fortunately we don't (imagine Munguin in a recording studio), but there are some talented people who might never have had a chance in the old days of recording contracts, who have the ability and the drive to do it themselves.
The guy in this video is a neighbour of John Brownlie. Hopefully John will fill us in a bit more about him.
The lines quoted above: "Oh come let's rejoice that we have a choice to be a nation", remind me of a Sunday morning not so long ago, sitting in a peace garden in Dublin, reading about the number of people who died in the fighting the Irish had to endure in their struggle to leave the UK.
For all I dislike Cameron, I have to say that at least he didn't force us to use guns or bombs to achieve our freedom. He agreed to a referendum which would have the force of the law of the sovereign parliament. The one in London.
We'd be mad not to take that choice.
