The Proclaimers – and all other Scottish acts – have been banned from an English radio station.
Well we had this:
Then there was this
FEAR TACTICS START – We’ll put guards on Scottish border: Ed Miliband
WE HAVE BEEN THREATENED FOR VOTING YES
NOW THIS! SCOTLAND – ENGLAND DOESN’T WANT US!
An English radio station has banned all Scottish music – including hits by the Proclaimers – and redesigned it’s logo as a backlash to the referendum.
The edict on BOB fm was issued by programme controller and breakfast show host Graham Mack at 8.20am, when he interrupted the Proclaimers’ ‘500 Miles’ halfway through the song.
He announced: “I’ve had enough of this! You’ll walk 500 hundred miles, but you don’t want anything to do with England?
“After all we’ve done for you! For 300 years, we’ve put up with your bagpipes, your spicey eggs, your hairy cattle, your short arsed ponies, your men in skirts, and… THE KRANKIES!
“You ungrateful bunch of whisky swigging, haggis munching caber tossers! From now on, this radio station is banning anything Scottish, that includes music by ALL Scottish artists!
“Until further notice, BOB fm is now Scot Free!”
The ban includes top Scottish musical talent including Paolo Nutini, KT Tunstall and Primal Scream.
BOB fm has also redesigned its logo, which features the union flag, to remove the St Andrew’s Cross.
Cap in hand, Proclaimers (Sang 500 miles)
I done a blog on this song 3/4 weeks ago http://shaunynews.com/2014/08/15/%E2%99%AB-i-cant-understand-why-we-let-someone-else-rule-our-land-%E2%99%AA/ I felt it was fitting towards my Countries Independence. The lyrics are in the video below. I have met these 2 lads Craig and Charlie in a few Leith (Place in Edinburgh) pubs and clubs, real good lads. Will be best known for “I could walk 500 miles” A song that has been used in so many Hollywood Movies. This song I love, always have and it just FITS the Nations agenda right now and it WILL hit number one in the Music Charts!
This song stirs feelings of nationalism through my veins and I know it will with others. A song written and released in the 1990’s has sprung to life to be Number 1 in the Download charts is amazing. Craig and Charlie, well done lads!
For anyone who doesn’t know who these lads are, you will when you watch this! This is live at Murryfield Stadium a few miles from my home!
Edinburgh Brothers Charlie and Craig Reid.
Edinburgh due who sung “500 miles” and other good songs. This is a superb song and a song that is good for the coming referendum in Scotland. The Lyrics are in the song. I don’t know if they intended this to be a Free Scotland song when the wrote it around 1990 but it sure fits the purpose now. They support Edinburgh Team Hibernian FC so many fans of other teams don’t like them, they are Yes Scotland voters, so this song, well, you will see.
