In a shed in Blackburn, West Lothian two volunteers diligently unravel wool from knitted red scarves hour after hour. Two devoted fans of Susan Boyle who decided enough was enough and that they too would take nae mair crap. A-M and notbannedfan, we salute you.
As they enjoyed their umpteenth cup of tea these intrepid ladies declared themselves inspired by Winston Churchill. We shall fight them in the library, we shall fight them in the street and fight to keep them out of our shed, we will never surrender they declared.
They laugh together and share their copies of the Broons and Oor Wullie and take delight in opening Miss Boyle's mail from her devoted fans.
Cheery and bright our notbannedfan remains upbeat despite opening mail earlier that contained pictures of toilet rolls as one American fan had heard that this is a rare commodity in Scotland. Another parcel for Miss Boyle contained a DVD from Denver with a note saying, "I know you don't have TV yet in Scotland but keep this DVD to watch when I send you your own TV next week - you do have electricity, don't you?"
Our lovely A-M has reportedly worked non stop for 36 hours as she needs more purple dyed wool to complete a batch of scarves for her new chums in Blackburn.
She told our reporter that people seemed to like her and help her as she becomes confused with cars driving on the other side of the road. Even though she was born in Teesside UK. She has made many friends.
The ladies wished to assure everyone that they will stick to their task and support Miss Boyle, whatever it takes.
