    One of my favourites. One of the best take-offs of the solemn BBC documentary, including the Neil Oliver look-alike popping up from behind bits of ruin. I still laugh out loud and share it with friends.

    This will always be Neil Oliver’s best work.

    Brilliant. A cry of PISH rang out above the crowd.

    Sadly what was both witty and funny then , is no longer so .Is it that I’ve lost my sense of humour ? I think not , While most saw through the likes of Murphy and his ilk, they left a darkness that can’t be forgiven.
    Or in the alternative, maybe I’m just having a moodie,? Nope it’s not that

    This cheered me up so much back then. It still does. Fab talent all round. Many thanks for the really good laugh.

    This video does illuminate the frenzied abusive thinking of diehard cybernats.

    It disrespects 55% of Scots as ‘the old, the weak and the gullible’.

    Calling the majority of Scots those things hardly makes us more likely to vote ‘aye’ to separation in any future referendum.

      This video has got a torch.

      It disrespects those who don’t get it. Maybe one day eh?

      Calling the now minority of Scots these things seems to still have convinced enough to see the light.

      You missed the wit in it?

      It disprespects no-one except Jim Murphy, who may be your hero, but exited Eastwood shortly thereafter.

      I accept that there are old lags like you that just lurve the Queen and David (ps) Cameron. (do you really want to know what ps stands for?)

      Comedy, like that, is more likely to persuade people away from your Puritanical views than t’opposite.

      Suck it up Dean, your lot couldn’t do that if you tried.

    Compulsory viewing for folk thinking there could be a future for Labour in Scotland – not for a while, not until after Independence I think. And even that might be too soon.
