Thread Name: Eskimo Republic Political Song Book
Subject: RE: Eskimo Republic Political Song Book
Is it the view of ollaimh and NeilD that no-one should ever sing Lord Franklin again, and that Rugby bus groups must refrain from singing a certain song being discussed elsewhere on the forum?
I live near to the Holy Loch which was the main scene of the activities of the 'Glesca Eskimos' and that eponymous song will be part of my repertoire when I sing to a local pensioners' club next week - people for whom that era is part of their history and memories!
It has nothing to do with Eskimo people / Inuit (my Chambers dictionary uses both terms) and everything to do with protesting against the imposition of a nuclear submarine base in a Scottish loch!!
