Billy Connolly on 'pathetic' Scottish Labour and what he really thinks about independence (

Billy Connolly

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.”
