I am so disappointed by this thread, its really just a Englishman bashing the Scotsmen, seeing as i see us all as Brits i dont really care either way
but my God the Scot in me is fuming reading this even though I am very much anti-independence
You can say its not OP, but it is.
You are not really focusing on the benefits that a independent Scotland would have for what would be left of the UK but rather just making lots of
generalized comments about us Scots that are, yes, racist.
t should lead to an end of whinging Scots bleating about everything wrong in their country being the fault of England - this would include their
higher than Europe average of alcoholics and domestic abuse crimes.
You know i have honestly never heard a single of my fellow countrymen say that its England's fault that we have higher than average number of
alcoholics or really anything else. Most of the rivalry i have seen is over sport nothing else, there are a few who are still holding a grudge over
some stuff you done to us back in the 15 and 1600's but thats about it.
No longer will we have to listen or see rubbish football results in the media from a league where 10 blokes and a dog is an average crowd attendance -
Oops forgot Celtic who will win it every year until Rangers get back up.
And we won't have to hear you lot go on about 1967 every world cup and Andy Murry and Christ Hoy, yeah they are "scottish" so we will keep them if
we get independence (i hope we dont though). Like I said above most of it comes down to sports rivalry and not anything else.
More money in the pot for English taxpayers who will no longer have a distribution of £10,212 allocated per year per Scottish taxpayer while the
English get £8,588 per person - Of course we still have to carry Wales and N.Ireland but they aren't seeking a referendum so status quo can carry on
as things develop.
Here you actually make a good point, just a shame you cant seem to do it with out bashing the Welsh and the Irish.
he racist Scots I often see will hopefully move back to the motherland and we can be free of their moaning about England being a crap place to live.
the "Racist Scots", you mean the same ones who you English have been fighting along side and spilling blood together all in the name of the British
do you have any idea how disrespectful your entire post is to the contribution that Scotland have made to the British state?
its like you are totally ignorant of history and think everything "good" about the UK comes from England and everyone else is just kind of being
carried by you.
very annoying and very silly of you.
We could switch to the often proposed Winter Daylight Saving Time without having any concern to the 'official' time in Scotland and/or effects of
Daylight saving times?
Scottish MP's could no longer sabotage voting in Parliament on issues solely affecting England - For example, the vote forcing fees on English
students while Scottish students were unaffected.
Well what you think that Scottish MP's should be removed because that is what it sounds like.
what should really happen is that England should probably have its own devolved government and that would fix the problem and make much more sense.
Also you should go to St. Andrews, lots and lots of English students
As someone living in England I am of course excluded from the referendum decision in Scotland, as such, I shall concentrate on looking at any plus
points for us if they actually decide to do one from the UK
There is actually quite a good reason why you are "excluded" from the referendum but let me say this.
You sir, are racist and totally ignorant of the history of our United Kingdom I cannot believe what racist tripe you have written about your fellow
