Ibrox says No!

An increasingly desperate New Labour has enlisted the help of a number of Scottish football folk to convince the wee folk north of Hadrian's Wall not to leave the bosom of the United Kingdom. Among those listed are Alex Ferguson, Graeme Souness, Ally McCoist, Walter Smith and Craig Brown, all lads closely associated with, hey, guess who, Rangers. Loyal subjects of the Crown up at Ibrox. Just because they're letting Italian Tims in the gate these days doesn't make it any less so.

Maybe you should have headlined your article something like, "Lisbon Lions Support the Union"

Only four of the Lisbon Lions, mind. Many thanks for your your comment which makes my own look foolish indeed (but it was spurred on, as often, by a second-hand report). That said, I still support Scottish independence, and my chief target was New Labour and their pathetic recourse to celebrity supporters to try and dig their own anodyne policies out of the earth. If the Scots vote to remain part of the Union, so be it, but it has always seemed the strangest of arrangements to me, as the English are closer to the Dutch, and even the Germans than they are to the Scots. I'll always slag Rangers off - that's never going to stop.
