Mods, not sure if this is in the right place, please move if need be.

Just came across this article which a few of my friends had posted on Facebook with the exact same thoughts as what i have after reading it.

This is absolute bulls**t!

The article tries to discredit the idea of Scotland becoming independent next year. But in order to do this, the writer has pretty much given the Scottish what seems to me like a big 'f**k you'.

I mean seriously:


Street “hooliganism,” government welfare and alcoholism define much of Scottish culture.



Without morality, many Scots tend to lack vision.


I am Scottish and lived there for 20 years up until a few years ago. To me this just seems like the definition of as bias report.

What do you guys think?

OCHAYETHENEWS.....
I spat my tea out.

Scotland will be going no where btw...until the referendum is counted and they stay with the UK, then we in England will have a referendum to throw them out (ingrates).

I guess the Scotts do not get satire. The original article comes from Hard Dawn a satire site that makes fun of Sara Palin types.

Also, I love how the picture for 'Scotish' hooliganism is the English Defence League! For our cousins over the pond, they are a far right wing English political party, well known for violence against Muslims.

Nah not a chance, you have it better anyhow than us English and sorry the sums just do not add up for an independent Scotland, maybe for a generation but after that nope.
Anyhow we will just invade (again) and take it all back seeing you will have no real armed forces.
(I was talking to a group of Scottish soldiers in a pub the other week and everyone of them was voting to stay due to the fact they will be out of a job If they leave).
Also all the polls show you will stay...thing is should we let you

ingrates? Scotland has been under the rule of England for way too long.

England -- definition of Possession of Stolen Property.

Every NICKEL that England has is Stolen wealth from hundreds of years of global plunder.

would LOVE to see England become Ethiopia, while the rest of the world cheers it on.

Nickle? I take it you are an American?
Ok hate us all you want but to want another country to fail this bad just tells me one thing you are jealous of our History/people and the fact we are GREAT BRITONS.

Oh and Scotland has it's own Parliament, they have power already and how many Scottish PM's have there been?
If the Scots do vote out good for them but we will continue being GREAT

Anyhow Iam out for now, no point discussing this til the date is closer.

Did not know there was a SDL!

Also, I actually support a Scottish Independence IF they remain in the UK, just with a separate PM... Obviously the UK would need to change up how it operates.. If they do leave the UK, what would happen to the Union Jack? The Scottish flag is a major part of it

Maybe you should start nearer home and repay all that you have stolen from The Native American Indians.

I do love having a repost at hypocritical Americans

I thought it quite funny...and tongue in cheek...but there may be a few truths in there.

We also have the ability to laugh at ourselves.

This is a unbiased appraisal of our Scottish cousins I'm afraid. They can't tell the difference between a genuine website and a satirical one.

Let's be serious for a minute though and imagine they do vote for independence. They will be able to lower their taxes, still provide free prescriptions, free school lunches etc. Nothing will change.

Well, not immediately, but when it does they will be cursing their decision. Everything will be rosy for a few years, but all politicians will return to type and start governing for the corporations and the banking system. They see how it works it England and really that's all the SMP's want, to be in a position where they get a nice little kick back from the lobbyists. You can bet they already have their bank accounts enhanced by lobbyists funding, but if they had real independence, they would be an awful lot richer.

If voting for an independent Scotland really made a difference to the people, they wouldn't allow it.

Terrorists would never take over Scotland, the Scots would kick their butts. They don't like anyone meddling in their affairs.

I was going to keep out of this.....the article linked to in the OP is obviously of a satirical nature and there are plenty of threads relating to the referendum on Scottish independence that will take place next year....but I really had to reply to your misinformed post.



ingrates? Scotland has been under the rule of England for way too long.


Scotland has NEVER 'been under the rule of England' - they are a full and equal partner in The Union.
To suggest they are a subjugated and oppressed nation and people is both an insult and wrong.



England -- definition of Possession of Stolen Property.


From an American?
You do see the irony in that don't you?



Every NICKEL that England has is Stolen wealth from hundreds of years of global plunder.


People in glass houses?



would LOVE to see England become Ethiopia, while the rest of the world cheers it on.


If 'England' ever becomes Ethiopia then I dread to think what state the rest of the world will be in.

And if karma is indeed a bitch then I also dread to think what the future has in store for the USA.

Jealous? pfft. the people that BOW DOWN to a Crown? yeah right,

Had the English any fight in them, the crown would have been destroyed. But only those weak willed stayed in England past the 1800's.. those docile and not willing to finish the job..

That crown is the ROOT of ALL EVIL... not even FROM ENGLAND territory originally. The offspring of the Roman Empire rulers.

But this is how they shape peoples minds!!!
Whenever the people who saw that report/joke hear anything about Scots independence they'll automatically think of this, any serious thought is now out the window!
Thats the purpose of programs like - Have I got news for you.
