On this day

1671; Robert Roy MacGregor was pushed into the gloaming; just guessing, as some historians do - not many midges this time of year, north of Hadrians wall - usually known simply as Rob Roy, the famous Scottish folk hero and outlaw of the early 18th century.
He died on 28th December 1734 and is buried in Balquhidder churchyard.
Rob Roy was a Jacobite, his true history is memorised in mist.

An interesting comment on a daytime tv programme yesterday...
The relationship between a 'woman' and mother in law is more complicated than the Brexit negotiations.
In the era of info and fake news; are they (things) really more complicated than previously!
Rob Roy didn't want to become an outlaw - does history have him down as a rule bending rebel.
Somewhat similar to how history will see the SNP epoch in years to come?
The polarisation of society is certainly interestingly complicated.

Many people are trying to influence democracy - as we now know it.
What is the score at this moment in time - 'it's the economy stupid'.
In the trade off between passion and professionalism (politics); recently the developed world has been deffered to the dollar.
The times they are a changing...
Are you in the haves or have-nots GANG GOSH!

1946; Doctors mounted a campaign to oppose the introduction of a National Health Service.
Trust me I'm a docker...
As individuals - from the doctors down; the doctors have all gone quiet over there - the medical profession is no different to any other profession/vocation; a mix of relative greedy/ non gits.
Except one very important angle; life and death.

Was the word 'vocation' used with a wry grin in this era of everybody wants your money.
When I were a lad and we knew each other; we had a new years eve toast...
'Heres wishing you health wealth and happiness' In an economy under pressure; is the order of words in the wrong/right order!

Are Greek citizens any different to us!
All immigrants and nation states just want a better standard of health wealth and happiness.
Who are you to deny them - some people do...
Let the game begin in earnest!
