I find it quite offensive to be called deluded
It wasn't aimed at you, but if you take offence it's your problem not Aileen's. She is a proud Scot but feels that Scotland is part of this Island of ours. I'm Welsh and proud of my Celtic heritage, but I'm also proud to be British and part of the rich tapestry created by putting together the different nationalities and find it hard to understand how anyone is going to get anything out of independence. confused

There are quite a few benefits to independence but fortunately this is not a place for political discussion. I'm keen for this thread to steer clear of politics as sport and politics rarely make a good combination.

This parade will be amazing. Wish I could take part in person, but I live too far away.
Nice little article here:

Apologies to those who may have seen this, but it sums up how many of us feel in Scotland at the moment. And yes, the politics is relevant at this point.

Sky and BBC both there by the looks of things- check out their live news channels nearer the time.

Speaks volumes about Andy that he goes to Dunblane first.

In Dunblane. I'm basically on the road bridge that crosses the railway. It's raining heavily.

It's nice now it's stopped raining and the sun's out. May also have been on Sky News for a second or two a few  minutes ago.

There are moments in life when you know the world has shifted from its axis.

Like on Tuesday night, in the middle of a World Cup qualifier, when the Tartan Army struck up a chant.

For a tennis player.

The subconscious acknowledgement of a shift in our national pride from what they were watching in front of them, and despairing at, to a sport which has long been the pursuit of the middle classes but suddenly has its everyman.

A class reaction for a truly world class act, and recognition for the best moment in the history of Scottish sport.



Superb article.  Thanks for posting it.   It makes me  feel so proud to be Scottish!

So frustrating - I can't find anything anywhere, and it's perhaps a pity that the Great North Run is also taking place today, but here's a pic from BBC Scotland website -





And the Beeb have invited folk to send in their photos of the occasion.  Hopefully they might have video highlights like they had of the Glasgow parade.
