Some people write Burns off as merely a romantic poet and a songsmith but work like ‘Such a Parcel of Rogues in a Nation’ shows Burns to be passionately political when it comes to the constitutional future of the Scottish nation. Scotland and the Scots seem to historically blame the English for everything. Burns manages to rise above such petty politics to see the whole issue in context. He blames the Scots for selling their ain folk out; and the price was paid in English gold. This searing political insight was some two hundred years ahead of its time. Scotland's destiny rests in Scotland's hands.

Hardeep Singh Kohli by broad daylight

"I have had many cameras thrust in my face. that is the lot of an international love-god and style icon (which I am). However, I have never experienced such a creative and rewarding shoot as that I had with Ross and Tricia. and they gave me soup. really nice soup. homemade soup. I miss them. and the soup"

Such a Parcel of Rogues in a Nation
     
     
 

Fareweel to a' our Scottish fame,
...Fareweel our ancient glory;
Fareweel even to the Scottish name,
...Sae fam'd in martial story!
Now Sark rins o'er the Solway sands,
...And Tweed rins to the ocean,
To mark whare England's province stands,
...Such a parcel of rogues in a nation !

Robert Burns
