Britannia Rules Our Waves: the story of the song.


By Willie Drennan



This song is inspired by a photograph that appeared on the Twitter feed of the Fishing For Leave campaign group. The image is of a young lad at the wheel of his father's fishing boat in England. His father was genuinely concerned that if EU fishing trawlers were allowed to continue plundering UK fishing waters then there would be no fishing industry for future generations.

Liberal Politics and EU Devotees.



By Willie Drennan


John King's novel, 'The Liberal Politics of Adolf Hitler' is in classic dystopian style and imagines the evolution of the EU into the totalitarian United States of Europe. The striking thing about this book is that it was published in 2016: written before the referendum, and yet King's projections seem to be already manifesting rapidly.

Once you have read King's novel, or at least when you have read it for the second time and examined it in depth as I have done, you are continuously struck by how quickly his predictions are materialising. EU leaders now talk quite openly about federalisation, developing central authority and the formation of an EU army: the United States of Europe.

The Independent Mind of Rabbie Burns. 1759 – 2019


By Willie Drennan


The man o' independent mind – he looks and laughs at aa that”.

The genius of Scotland's immortal bard has appealed to many folks for many different reasons. He had an exceptional ability to deeply understand humanity and to express his observations through his advanced skills in verbal and written communication. He was able to reach people from a wide range of social, political, religious and philosophical backgrounds.

Hardly surprising then that people with contrasting views and ethics seek to embrace him as one of their own. I'm afraid I'm no different. I will stick my neck out and say with absolute conviction that if Mr Burns was alive today that he would be no devotee of the EU and would have voted to escape from the control of that regime in the 2016 EU Referendum. There. I said it. And I await,in eager anticipation, an onslaught of challenge and abuse from an assortment of pro-EU Establishment academics and other non-academic EU devotees.
