The flood of prejudiced bile* triggered by Donald Trump' and some of his supporters, plus some in the UK referendum debate and ISIS's media statements all test my belief in humanity's inherent goodness. It will lead to despair unless.... all, who want better than this, speak up and act..

Oh, Scotland! - After the Referendum 1
To drink a dram o'whisky and leave my warming beer.Oh, to walk the wild hills with freedom in my mind.To be tolerant and proud and leave prejudice behind.Oh, to feel the clean air and yes, the gentle rainLiving in a country that wanted to #Remain.Remain in touch with othersWho stand in line and fearWith the sisters and mothersWith the fathers and brothersClutching children near.Oh, I'll douse my tears in waterfallsTo hide my deepest shameThat Britain is now shrinking smallAnd will not be Great again.
