Thread Name: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
no its Scottish because Ewan wanted to be a Scot. And adopted a Scottish persona.

Just like James Connolly is an Irish hero.

Cliff Richard is an English popstar.

Django Rheinhardt is a French icon summoning up images of the left bank etc.

Hitler is a German villain.

Billy the Kid is a western outlaw.

Its not what life hands you, its what you do with it.
