Remembrance and Nationalism

“We fought two world wars together. And there is not a cemetery in Europe that does not have Scots, English, Welsh, and Irish lying side-by-side.

“And when young men were injured in these wars, they didn’t look to each other and ask whether you were Scots or English, they came to each other’s aid because we were part of a common cause.

“And we not only won these wars together, we built the peace together, we built the health service together, we built the welfare state together, we will build the future together.”

– Gordon Brown (Maryhill Community Central Halls, 17th September 2014.)
