THE NEW SCOTS

Much has been said and implied by the Labour Party and other pro-Union political groups about the mild racism they say is inherent in the SNP, and the rabid extreme racism that exists within the ranks of Siol nan Gaidheal, a charge that has never had any basis and has been disproven times without number, but is still bandied about by the pro-British press in order to discredit groups and organisations that they feel unable to categorise or to get rid of. This charge was shown to be false by the numbers of black members of our organisation in the same fashion as their charge of our supposed hatred of ALL Englishfolk, this allegation was also shown to have absolutely no credibility by statements issued by English members of Siol nan Gaidheal. Therefore we are delighted to honour as many of these New Scots in this article as we can. Thanks must be given to the generally distasteful newspaper The Sun for publishing a story that enabled us to identify many of our people who would have remained nameless, for this at least, we thank the aforementioned “newspaper”.
