At the Brit Awards in February 2014, David Bowie, speaking through Kate Moss, made a four-word intervention in the Scottish Independence debate: 'Scotland, stay with us'. Inspired and amused, a group of key figures in Scottish arts, politics and academia have got together to host a series of discussions and interventions on the subject of Scotland's future at the Edinburgh Festival this year, under the title All Back to Bowie's.
David Greig, a prime mover in this project, asked me to contribute to one of the events:
WEDNESDAY 13 AUGUST, 12.20pm
From Ibiza to The Norfolk Broads – We Need To Talk about England
With Kieran Hurley, David Greig, Leo Glaister, Dan Rebellato, Loki.
Stand in the Square
St Andrew Square, EH2 2AD
My contribution is a video in which I suggest a radical new relationship between Scotland and England.
