“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.
