All these cries all these yells…
It’s been a very long time since I’ve said anything outside of Twatter. It’s a problem I have. Everything moves at such a rate that I can’t respond in real time, so I end up not responding at all, apart from in Twatter that is.
I’m going to come across all ‘me & I’, fuck shoot me now.
But where else can I come from.
There was a Tweet about ..oh giz a min, I might be able to just put it here.
Sorry that took a good 15 minutes to sort out. But do you see what that account is saying?
I don’t follow fitba or sport at all, but I do wonder where the sport is and why oh why is there a constant yell from folk about not being able to see the fitba.
There are other sports, curling and shinty to name just two. Where I grew up you could say Gaelic and Hurling. But both those were normal, they were on the telly box. Why? Well because thankfully I grew up in an independent country.
See the problem here? It’s the same as shutting down the language, it’s part of shutting down the culture of a country.
This is a very short shout out, but I’m starting to see Scottish sport and in a way other culture as ‘hedge schools’. No not as drastic, but also as drastic. Not as drastic cause folk aren’t being killed, but as drastic because culture, be it language or sport are in the cross hairs of English exceptionalism.
I have spent my adult life trying to ‘excuse’ English exceptionalism. I have great friends who are English who do not abide by this weirdness. But I think, now, if trying to walk the ‘but’ line, I just need to say it out loud.
England is still coming after you. It’s still trying to control you. Your languages, your sports. Everything about you.
Don’t let them. Stop banging on about not being able to see the fitba. Boycot the feckers.
