On 4th September 2016 the First Minister announced the formation of a Growth Commission. Its long-awaited report will, we are told, set out the currency plan for an independent Scotland. Aidan Skinner Campbell today marks the passage of a notable period of time since its creation, in a song dedicated to Andrew Wilson and his team.

 

When I wake up, well you know I’m gonna tweet,
I’m gonna be the man who’s got a gif to use.
When it comes out, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m not gonna be the man who goes along with this

If I get drunk, well you know I’m gonna tweet,
I’m gonna be the man who tweets gifs at you.
And if I haver, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s havering at you

But we’ve waited 500 days
And we might wait 500 more
Just to be the man who asks a thousand times
When the currency plan will get out the door

When I’m working, yes you know I’m gonna work,
I’m gonna be the man who’s working hard for you
And when the money comes in for the work I’ll do
It’ll be in pounds, because that’s in my contract.

When I come home, oh I know what I’m gonna pay
I’m gonna pay the rent in pounds, because that’s in the contract
And if I grow old, well I what know I’m gonna do
I’m gonna buy a pension in pounds because that’s what I’ve saved

But we’ve waited 500 days
And we might wait 500 more
Just to be the man who asks a thousand times
When the currency plan will get out the door

But we’ve waited 500 days
And we might wait 500 more
Just to be the man who asks a thousand times
When the currency plan will get out the door
