Last week Wilson McLeod took to the website Bella Caledonia to criticise the glaring absence of the native Scottish (Gaelic) language from the referendum on independence in Scotland. In a well argued piece he attacked the off-hand treatment of Scottish-speaking communities and citizens by the SNP-led “Yes” campaign and the dismissal of their requests for a bilingual ballot and information materials. The response from the Unionist anti-sovereignty “No” side has been, if possible, even worse. So it is good to see that the independent activist website Wings Over Scotland has produced a new Scottish (Gaelic) version of its Little Blue Book, the influential guide to independence that has been causing such a stir in recent weeks. You can download your copy of An Leabhar Beag Gorm here (the first sentence I wrote in Irish as a school child was an leabhar beag gorm!).
