On this Saint Andrew's Day, well done to Scotland an her peoples as you progress steadily towards freedom from the Westminster Government:

Robert Burns wrote:

To mark where England's province stands - such a parcel of rogues in a nation"

I think the poem was called "It's nae the Amazon".

(It was about the betrayal of Scotland by the Scottish ruling class, mind you, not the English).

But Scotland's still there more than 200 years later.

Specifically the members of the last independent Scottish Parliament who were bribed to abolish themselves, "bought and sold for English gold". Politicians never change.

Btw. it seems the 'powers' now promised are just another Tory smokescreen. Why are the English such mean minded bastards? There haven't been any Tory votes to speak of in Scotland since Thatcher's time.

Philology will get you nowhere.
Or possibly somewhere.
Or other.
Or something like that.
