Is Jimmy the lesser well-known brother of Bobby? Or has the re-writing of history by new Labour changed his name?

Jimmy Sands was a Sottish country dance band leader I believe (or was that Jimmy Shand??!!)

I still remember Bobby Sands' telephone number 80 80 10 (eight nothing, eight nothing, wun nothing)

It's from graffiti seen around the Shankhill in the early 80's. It was also part of a chant heard at certain football grounds but that would also take too much explaining. :wink:

That would be the Weegies then? They always loved a good tune, bless 'em.

Here is Bobby Sands with that old foot tapper, The Bluebell Polka.
