Partick, Politics and Passions

Moving on up ..

One day I’m going to post a quiz about identifying the artists from the song titles that head up some of my blog posts and this one will be a trick question as there are two bands that have recorded songs with this title but there was only one that I had in mind to sum up the unconfined joy following Scotland’s victoire magnifique in Paris on Wednesday. Am glad I watched it in a pub  – well, only way I could as I’ve only got Freeview not Sky – as the incredulous hysteria following the goal and then the final whistle really had to be a shared experience. Speculation about what the result of an independence referendum would be following the collective euphoria of an unexpected and frankly historic victory is bizarre – as is an SNP motion to the next council which implies Scotland should be independent because Celtic and Rangers are doing well in Europe. Hmm, let me see if I’ve got this right – the case for independence depends on 11 men on a football field.. back to emotion, not logic or reason…
