Summary
All roads lead home.'After my knighthood was announced,a woman from the BBC came to Glasgow to interview me. We sat down in a lovely hotel in a nice part of town, and she hit me with her first question- "This must mean a lot to you, with you coming from nothing?" I looked at her, and I laughed."I did'nae come from nothing, "I told her. "I come from something." I grew up in the tenements of post-war Glasgow. I am very proud to be working class, and especially a working-class Glaswegian who has worked in the shipyards. I come from the working class. And, most of all, I come from Scotland. Scotland is a unique and wonderful place. Its national motto says a lot about it - Nemo me impunelacessit. A decent translation might be- 'By all means punch me in the nose but prepare yourself for a kick in the arse. 'I did'nae come from nothing - I come from Scotland. And this book is about why I will always be happy and proud that I do.'
