If you get your wish and Scotland becomes independent, will I get the choice to remain British or will I have to join your clans etc??
There are a lot of conspiracy theories out there - some which i believe there is more going on behind the scenes than let on, i.e. 9/11; and some which are a bit too far fetched, i.e. The Illuminati.

The Fish article got me wondering -is Midge (Why-did-Bob-get-a-knighthood-and-not-me) Ure a Hibs fan?

The legend passed in the early hours of the morning :boo hoo::boo hoo:
Thoughts to his family and friends :boo hoo::boo hoo:
