I didn't realise until today that there is a McPLD branch
north of Hadrian's Wall. To dip into bits of the Magnum Carter, defunct or otherwise is a bit ....ummm ....'constitutionally threadbare' for Scots men and women but I guess the anti-establishment slant of the whole project has its attractions.
Whatever, Connor Wilkinson who also posts on the English version of PLD had had little joy further north thus far;
I think the problem is here in Scotland it's a bit difficult to mention Magna Carta without someone laughing at you. I've had plenty the experience with that, which is why I put the info togeather myself to learn (we all learn one way)
Anyway, I have it on very good authority that King John had his fingers crossed and scribbled "V. C." in one corner whilst signing the damn thing (which he almost certainly was) but let's not let that get in the way of things.
Despite all the efforts to get things going the Flower of Scotland don't seem too enamoured with the idea.
Why is it that no one bothers with thier own fate? Sometimes I feel like just giving up because the message seems to be getting nowhere. Am I doing something wrong with the way I am approaching sharing this info? I would recreate new publications a thousand times over if I knew it was actually going to be observed and acted on.
Are the people listening?
Brian Varney wants a moot, here he is on the 24th September putting the word out;
29/30 September 1/2 October, I want to meet with fellow Rebels around the central belt here in Scotland. I think the problem we have is that we are tied to our keyboards and that we need to speak face to face, also become real "brothers/sisters in arms".
A big meet did indeed transpire and a grand gathering of McRebel clans took place 30th September;
Thanks to Connor Jason Wilkinson and Graeme Marland for the get together today in Edinburgh. Although there was only three of us who managed to turn up, I personally deemed this as a success.
Great. Curly, Larry and Moe. One for the list of definitions too;Success
- a maximum of three at a Footle/SovCit meeting.
Efforts to garner similar support at a Glasgow meet were less 'successful', here's Brian Varney again;
Yes, I've had that experience of setting up a meet and only myself being there. It is soul destroying to say the least. If this one has a disappointing turnout, then I will have to question my own commitment.
Connor makes his excuses;
I did turn up to the Glasgow meet. Unfortunately I couldnt get in contact with Robert White when I realised the door was locked.
