Re: Jacobites

A link with the '45.  What percentage of Scots supported the Jacobites?  How
many came out for the Prince?   On the 16 September the gates of Edinburgh
opened for him.  Five days later he  routed the Hanoverian forces under John
Cope at Prestonpans.  He was in his fathers name 'King in Scotland'.  Why
did he want England also?  Where did he get Celtic blood?  Does the SNP
portray  the real history of the Jacobite movement?  What is the political
will of the Scots?  Is the present elected Parliament in Scotland

"The liberty of man consists solely in this: that he obeys natural laws
because he has himself recognized them as such, and not because they have
been externally imposed upon him by any extrinsic will whatever, divine or
human, collective or individual." --Mikhail Bakunin, God and the State
