Billy Connolly on 'pathetic' Scottish Labour and what he really thinks about independence (www.heraldscotland.com)

The Herald reports:Insisting that his politics change “daily”, he says: “I’ve never liked nationalism in any of its guises. I’m not saying I’ve never agreed with independence. I think a Scottish republic is as good an idea as any I ever heard. But I don’t represent anybody, or anything. I don’t think it’s wise to.”

i read recently of an interview he gave a good while ago. In it he was quite critical of the SNP and the anti-english theme they promote. He said he had no time for bigots and could never support a party of that ilk. So I think, whilst he may support the concept of Independence, he certainly doesn’t support the SNP, and their way of doing things.
