Scotland’s Makar poet Liz Lochhead has joined the SNP! Wonderful all these Scottish writers, poets, musicians and authors who back Scottish independence! : )) This photo was of Liz at Edinburgh Book festival 2014.
She's been told as Scottish makar she should speak for all Scots and have kept quiet on her views. Must admit I'd have thought her religion or politics are personal. As with historian Tom Devine, I have wondered some artists feel intimidated to keep quiet on Scottish independence. Liz said she is about 'the language of life and the dance of words.'
