    Delighted with the participation of Iolo from the Welsh point of view and Red Justice for the view from Scotland. Nothing like a bit of a fresh viewpoint to make you think again about the Irish situation... great stuff.
    Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.

    From one Alistair C on Max Keiser's site:
    I am directly descended from David Carnegie, one of the “Octavians” of 1596. who drafted the Union when King James 1st started the British Stuart Dynasty. My Ancestor can be seen at the top of the list! and he refused a peerage from his Monarch on the grounds that Scotsmen would think he had been bribed, and consequentially drafted terms unfavourable to either party of this Act of Union.

    It is an interesting document to study, it begins with a “DIRE WARNING!” a condition that if once breached, instantly revoked the entire Treaty. “THERE SHALL BE EQUAL AND CONCURRENT TAXATION NORTH & SOUTH OF THE BORDER!”

    Mrs. Thatcher introduced the Poll Tax in Scotland, one year before the rest of the once United Kingdom…..This Tax de facto revoked the Union. which became NULL & VOID as the clock struck midnight on that fateful day! All silly talk about Scotland’s Independence is hot air and pure deception! SCOTLAND IS AND HAS BEEN LEGALLY INDEPENDENT SINCE THE INSTANT THE POLL TAX WAS INTRODUCED! get used to this fact! it is the honest truth!

    The above post was in response to Max Keisers recent post in favour of Irish and Scottish independence-he more or less said now is the time for us to harass Cameron after the eu isolation saying he'll be visiting Belfast 'to sort out these bastards' some time in March.

    I recognised the Surname and knew a few Morton's in my life time in ''the North''
    Hardy Lads and Lassies.

    Interesting Douglas Clan Motto: Jamais Arriere (Never behind).

    I'm drawn to your username ''Red Justice'' and sense a link to the renowned ''Red Douglas'' in your Family History. Am i right?.

    Yes there are a few Morton's in the North of Ireland.

    My username was chosen because I am a Scottish Republican Socialist. But thanks for considering the link with "Red Douglas" I suppose it would be better than calling myself a "Black Douglas"
