About 1st July, 1999

Scotland's Day of Days when Rabbie Burns, beautifully assisted by Fife's Sheena Wellington, stole the entire show with his international and libertarian anthem A Man's a Man for 'a That .

We were not meant to sing along, and were were just meant to politely applaud - "what would the Queen or the Duke think?" thought Sir David, big Donald and the powers that be. But we could not give a dam. This was Scotland's day and it took Rabbie to lift the roof, set the tone and give our new parliament its immortal memory

Eat your heart out Willie Shakespeare! Match that Oliver Cromwell! And an "irrelevant 18th century poet"?
