THE BRUCE BACKS ALBA
The ALBA Party have secured the support of the greatest Scots hero of all time – Robert the Bruce.
Hollywood actor and director, Angus Macfadyen, who played the hero king in the Mel Gibson’s blockbuster Braveheart and reprised the role once again in Richard Gray’s film depiction of two years ago, has announced his backing for Scotland’s newest political Party.
Last week chart topping Auchtermuchty singing duo The Proclaimers pledged their support to ALBA.
Angus Macfadyen is currently portraying Jor-El Superman’s Kryptonian father in the new CW television series “Superman and Lois”, the film role made famous by Marlon Brando.
Macfadyen has now produced and narrated a short film, due for release on YouTube and Facebook on Monday, telling the story of how the camp flowers of “sma folk” turned the tide of the Battle of Bannockburn by appearing at a vital moment on Gillies Hill as a fresh Scottish army. Macfadyen, using a famous line from Braveheart, then calls on ALBA to “Unite the Clans”
In a statement Angus McFadyen said:“I see the emergence of ALBA as an underdog upsetting the established parties and making possible an overwhelming victory for independence at the polls. This depiction is ever so slightly tongue in cheek but still makes a very serious point. It is the “sma folk” or people power who hold the key to Scotland’s future. That was fact in 1314. It is true in 2021.”
ALBA Party leader and Former First Minister Alex Salmond said:“It is great to have Angus on board. ALBA at two weeks old are Scotland’s fastest growing political Party and with Robert the Bruce on our side the other parties should start to tremble. It is indeed people power which can propel Scotland towards independence – from Superman’s dad to #Supermajority”

A, fredome is a noble thing, part of the most-cited passage from Barbour’s The Brus, a long narrative poem, in Early Scots, composed by John Barbour, Archdeacon of Aberdeen c 1375, gives a historic and chivalric account of the life of Robert the Bruce. Barbour narrates the account of the camp followers or “sma folk” playing a decisive role in the battle on June 24th 1314.
This is great news and his short documentary mixing footage from the AUOB events captures the emotion and drive of our cause. We need the support of those who marched for Scotland’s cause in those events to appear from over the hill today and join us in creating a great victory for the ordinary folk of Scotland on the 6th May. Unite the clans! We can do this!
I am, as always
Yours for Scotland
