It's pronounced 'Ahloopah'. Scots Gaelic is an interesting trip down a twisty road of pronunciation.
So the land of many of my ancestors voted for independence. It lost. They voted to stay tethered to England. It was, however closer than the statists and royalty liked. I bet. Check it out. It's ll over the internet, though slid down the hot topics headlines.
This cheeky Yank has an opinion. Freedom is becoming a worldwide quest. This has never gone away. Though people are bribed with entitlements, there is a desire to strike out on their own.
My suggestion is for Scotland to break free, form a Constitutional Republic then realign itself with those who will actively destroy the jihadist threat. Easier said than done? Yes, but not impossible. And Scots are renowned for rolling up their sleeves and getting to it.
We need to restore our own Republic. It is supposed to be an example of Freedom for the world to follow. But we can root for others.
An association of republics works better than an umbrella of socialist states such as the European Union. Unity through diversity (Not the isolated attempt to pit people against each other) ie E Pluribus Unum is more dynamic than a pulpy collectivist blob.
Just my two cents as the international bankers smooth their ruffled feathers.
One day Scotland will be Free. People will win over the state.
Dreams do come true. You cannot stop ideas.
