When I was a lot younger I was dating a girl , who's father used the pseudonym Thurso Berwick, he wrote this as a verse in one of his songs ;
Noo Scotland hasnae got a King.
And she hasnae got a Queen
How can ye hae the Second Liz
When the First yin's never been.
Given the history between the two nations it's perhaps surprising the union has lasted so long.
Love Scotland and the Scottish, but when I hear such patriotic (and historically coloured) bull..... I turn to the fact that basically IMHO, 99% of English don't give a damn about them. And if they want to break free from the UK, then fine. Bye bye.
"Love Scotland and the Scottish, BUT" … - really?
Sounds so very like the posts we see every now and again that begin "I am not a racist, but ..."
WUGGED WOY'S post seems fair enough to me.
There are many Scotts who despise the English and hugely resent Westminster (see Glasnaim's posts) so why shouldn't they be allowed to toodle off into the sunset to live the lives they want and desire.
And as his post points out, a good number of us south of the border don't really care although there is one notable exception who is ironically the subject of the poem - the Queen - who ripped call me Dave a new one over letting them have a devolution referendum.
Get real, the verse from a song, was carrying on a humorous theme of poems re Scots/English. If I was as thin skinned and insecure as yourself I could have taken more exception to Huge's previous post/poem, check it out, but I didn't, it's called humour, try it sometime may make your life more bearable.
The Scots don't despise the English and brave heart isn't real, you only seem to get from my posts what you want to take. A lot of Scots who vote SNP aren't nationalists in the sense that you portray, we don't hate the English but we despair at the incompetence and lies of west minister, in fairness not just the tories but labour as well. We voted overwhelmingly to stay in Europe, this position is central to the increasing support for the SNP.
The song that seems to upset you is not really anti queen, read the lyrics for yourself, Scottish Breakaway (Coronation Coronach), Thurso Berwick. Maybe you and others down south don't care what happens to Scotland and would be happy for us to "toddle off". The Scots always have always and will continue to participate in the UK's political system until the position is untenable, I think you need to look closer to home for those that will be responsible for splitting up the union.
