“… we shall never in any wise consent submit to the rule of the English…” – Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland (1306- 1329 A.D.)
Indeed. Sage advice, past or present. Before him, across the Scottish landscape lay the vanquished English army of King Edward II. Surveying the thousands of dead and dying invaders, Robert the Bruce, new King of Scotland was in a position to gloat. Certainly history, hence, in Scotland and around the world has proved his synopsis correct.
Today, Alex Salmond and his Scottish National Party (SNP) may have keen use for these words of victory once again.
Today is a very important day. Not only for Scotland.
