Subject: RE: Eskimo Republic Political Song Book
I'm glad the launch was a success, Ewan, and I'm sorry I couldn't be there, it's an excellent, well researched book up to you usual standards. I think it should be clarified that the Glesca Eskimos, as a group, had a political agenda. We were not only anti Polaris but Scottish Republican. I'm glad a platform has been given to show support against anti nuclear and all wars in general but anyone participating in an 'Eskimo' event should remember its aims … an independent, nuclear free, Scottish Republic. No sledge jumpers appreciated! By the way, as the chorus of the Eskimo Republic says, I got my 'six month doss' in the Bar-L.
