Can I ask a question (yes, I know, most of you are rolling your eyes at the "ignorant Yank" over here...which is completely true as I know nothing
Why does it seem that many in the UK have such an .....damn, the only word that seems to fit is "hate" for Scotts and Scotland?
My ancestors hailed from there....er.....like 300 years ago, so my Scottish blood is pretty thin (though my red hair, freckles and temper says
otherwise), and I remember ancient history from school, but not too much.
I am curious though. This thread is reminding me of the "hate" I saw a while back here on ATS for places like the southern US states and talk of
ceeding from the union (never happen).
I'm just wondering why it's there. Was it some point in history? Something more current? Can anyone explain why such a hate for the Scotts?
Hell, they even make fun of Scotts on Doctor Who.......
Anyone have the time to educate some of us ignorant Yanks?
Oh! BTW - it seems to go both ways, so any Scotts, I'd like to hear from you too.....er......try not to kill each other here though, okay?
