Scottish national party to press for independence

Sep 3, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WBAY

Scotland's separatist government said Thursday that it would push for a referendum on independence from the United Kingdom next year - a proposal unlikely to go far because the nationalists are outnumbered in Scotland's parliament.

Well funny
It was Northerners who invent Haggis mate in the 1500's. The first record of Haggis in Scotland was in the 1700's.

Where are you from then? Must be a Southerner!

Guy Fawkes is a really famous Yorkshireman who tried to kill that evil Scottish King who ruled England!
Robin Hood is another famous Yorkshire man!
And so is Harold Wilson!

Got to admit, there are many more famous Scots than Denis Nilsen such as Mel Gibson

yes, we all know Sherwood Forest is in Yorkshire. Mel Gibson is an Aussie, you donkey, the only well-known people from Yorkshire are murderers and famous bores, like Parkinson and all those self-opinionated cricket people you produce.

Actually Robin Hood was from Barnsdale which is in South Yorkshire on the boarder to Nottinghamshire. Why do you think Robin Hood airport is in Yorkshire?

Also it was a joke regarding Braveheart you poncey Southerner. Anyway Mel Gibson is from New York, but raised in Australia; thus he is a Yank not an Aussie.

Another thing, Avid Merrion aka Leigh Francis from Bo Selecta is a Yorkshireman, he aint a bore. We have loads of amazing musicians. Sean Bean is an amazing actor. I could go on forever!

Not very well versed in history are you?

God save the king was first peformed for king charles I, a Scottish king, born in scotland.

The original line is 'seditious scots to crush' as it referred to the already strong independance movement in Scotland which sprung up almost as soon as our king James IV waltzed down south and took over control of your country. Many Scots viewed that as a less than worthless conquest.

Still if you'd rather have a fantasy version of history that can massage your fragile English ego then go ahead. Educated people know what really happened.

England doesn't have a national anthem. We also set up a few things with the monarchy to keep you in your place:

You have to call the queen 'your majesty' we call her 'your grace', you have to bow or curtsey in her presence, we don't.

Now piss off away from the computer and earn us some money will you? Servants are so lippy these days.

If Scotland were to break away, who would get the Over seas territories?

It would be like a couple getting divorced arguing over who gets to keep what. England would be like "I'm keeping Gibraltar" and Scotland would be like "OK then, as long as I get the Falkland Islands"

Seriously what would happen? Would England-Wales keep the overseas territories since it is Scotland breaking away? or what?

Also if Scotland broke away I think it is goodbye Northern Ireland and goodbye Permanent Seat in the UN security council.

I'm guessing England-Wales would be classed as the successor state. Would Scotland have to reapply to NATO, EU etc?

Also would Scotland be a Constitutional Monarchy? Eg would Queen Liz still the Queen of Scotland in the same way she is of Canada, NZ and Australia etc, but Scotland would have it's own PM?

That just raises further questions. Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling would have to leave Westminster. Labour would loose all their seats in Scotland and torries would win all the time.

If Scotland did break away there would be a huge political MESS!

I haven't any opinion on this being a Yanks and all. I wanted to congratulate you all on some truly hilarious commentary. This is been highly entertaining and educational about people's thoughts about Scotland.
Very different than the Jerry Springeresque "bitch he aint your baby daddy" stye of argumentation used by my fellow Americans on here. Very refreshing and far more intellectual. More proof that America is fucked.
And I am not being facetious or taking a piss as you might say. Cheers.

The real estate would be auctioned off and the proceeds would then be divided among themselves.

It could be a shared seat at the U.N. Of course N. Ireland would secede because of the Scottish legal precedence. At the very least one could see a lengthy guerrilla struggle by the Leprechauns to achieve it.

Yes. But it's optional.

No. Lizzy would be fired from the job. The Scots would then hire a Stuart to be their king or queen. It would help if there were a descendent by the name of 'Mary'. They like that in Glasgow.

the song was not even written until the time of the Hanoverians. You jocks have a fantasy Disney version of history, all Rob Roys and Tartan heroes. Don't forget either, most of the "English" troops at Culloden were Scots Lowlanders.

it was written for George the Hanoverian. It was MARSHALL Wade, not General.

Lord, grant that Marshal Wade,
May by thy mighty aid,
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush and like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush,
God save the King.

I expect you could have the Krankies as your Royal family. Or else you could have some famous Jock like Sean Connery as a president - Oh , sorry, all the famous Jocks don't live in Scotland!

We Jocks, as you like to put it not only know our history but also have an identity unlike the little Englander.
The Welsh know their identity.
The Irish know their identity.
The sad little Englander no longer has the identity of being English. Your country has been bastardized so much the dilution is almost complete.
A melting pot of the worlds great unwashed finds their home in England.
