I always see both sides of the argument, the one that's wrong and mine.....

This song was used a good lot of years ago by Alex Smith ex president of the SFF  when he made a presentation to some folk in Edinburgh.
The video he used to go along with the song was made by a guy called Mike Smith and featured Arbroath harbour in the 1960's full of fishing boats and 35 years later with only 2/3 creel boats laying at the pier.
Mike came to sea with us and did some filming to go along with the song. We had 4 or 5 hauls off Eyemouth for 200 boxes of sma haddies and had to go into Eyemouth for more ice before steaming up to Aberdeen to land.

His film kind of makes the politicians look like fools for destroying an industry in the name of conservation when the sea was already full of fish.

Have to see if I can upload it.
