Speakin Scots is apoleetical

Noo here an unco thing. Billy Kay’s buik made a strang cleek atween Scots an political awaurness – the threip bein the mair Scots ye ken, the mair ‘nationalist’ ye’d mibbies be.

A doot thon fear is ahint muckle o the Brits’ doon-pleyin an doon-haudin o Scots. But is it true? Wis pleyin aroon wi the 2014 Referendum vs 2011 Census cooncil data an this graph kythed.

Basic-like there nae connection at aw atween Scots-speakin and Yes-votin. Mibbies e’en a wee negative trend!

Whit de yez think o that? Strynge or expectit?
