Scottish Independence (sorry I am doing my bit). . . Important Facts about Scotland.
It’s Sunday and I plan to bore you all silly once again with the great Scottish Independence YES NO vote due in just a few days. I know it’s terrible after nearly 300 years of little or no news about the strange goings on of the homeland, the damn place is all over the news like it is the most important thing happening in
. . . Scotland
So what are the facts about
1 Well it has a population of about 5.2 million or just over, of which about 2.5 million are working or should be.
2 If you ignore oil for the moment its top exports appear to be Food and Drink. . . I knew everyone liked deep fried Mars bars, Iron Bru and a Tunnock’s teacake.
Scotland already has its own Legal System
separate to that in the rest of the UK
has its own Education System Scotland
5 And to buy a house in
Scotland is different to that in . England
its own Sportsmen and teams who get to compete internationally for their home
Country although not in the Olympics. Scotland also has its own Highland Games
with things such as Goat Wresting and Grouse Bobbing. Scotland
7 It has its own language, dialects and customs that are a mystery to the rest of the world and many Scotsmen.
8 It has its own weather that is much wetter and wilder that
making many Scotsmen a bit
9 It is a land of many mountains and moors.
Ben Nevis being 1344m
high when it has warmed up in the sun and the longest river is the River Tay
193km on a wet day.
10 And it has loads of History going back ages long before the Roman invasion of Britain in 1st century AD when the Romans had to build a wall to protect themselves as the Scots had pointy sticks and were very scary.
11 The motto of
is “Nemo me impune lacessit”, or: "No one provokes me with impunity . . .
. . . PAL “or its modern equivalent “Are
You Looking at Me Pal” Scotland
has its own protected species of Underwater Monster that the English have tried
to steal or discredit since 1545. . . . . . NO it’s ours so YA SUCKS BOOOO. Scotland
the greatest sports fans in the world who will always chant the famous Scottish
phrase “WE WAS ROBBED” after all matches or competitions when we lose right at
the end. Scotland
That last point is rather important, in fact it is very very important indeed because it is the one the Scots always forget every single time. It is why it keeps happening and I can see it happening yet again. The English appear to be defeated and are sulking and wandering back home to
and the like. The
Scots chasing them, waving their kilts in the air and throwing cans of Iron Bru
and that Mr Cameron chap, laughing and sniggering as they pursue the English
deep into London .
Only to realize too late that they have not voted yet and they are now too far
away to get to a polling station and then the NO Campaign wins by 52% to the
yes vote of 48% . . . . The Scots having been tricked yet again . . . . . . . England
All I can say is WE WAS ROBBED.
