Way back in 1298, on 22/7, the Scottish army, under the leadership of Braveheart, William Wallace, were heavily defeated at the Battle of Falkirk by English forces. Wallace then resigned his position, to be replaced by Robert the Bruce, who, allegedly, received handers from the Knight's Templar at infamous Bannockburn. Not much is known about Wallace, although many myths appear to have birthed at the Royal Court of James 4th, via the tongue of an entertainer called Blind Harry.
Today, the media is full of a story regarding Scotland and the monarchy - post potential independence. The Scottish National Party - led by Alex Salmond - propose that the monarchy is kept, should independence be agreed, democratically, by referendum of the people. Indeed, Alex often joins Her Majesty at her ritual summer holiday in Balmoral.
However, Scottish Independence campaigner, chairman of the Yes Scotland contingent, Dennis Canavan , has today spoken out re the keeping of the monarchy should Yes prevail, stating that there should be another referendum on this specific issue, if Scotland "allegedly" "cuts her chains". BBC
When Dennis removed himself from office, he was replaced by Eric Joyce, who has been the Member of Parliament for Falkirk since 2005.
"Hard-man", Eric Joyce, is ex military. He has recently become embroiled in a few scandals - schoolgirls, fighting, and drinking. He has served as chair of the National Fabian Society. He has resigned from the Labour Party - but still acts as a Member of Parliament, and thus collects the "wages". (wiki)
