robomatic BS: time to go back to scotland (39) RE: BS: time to go back to scotland 16 Dec 19


I am an anglophile, and by that I am by no means limited to the English. That whole messy bunch of islanders over there, various backgrounds, shades, and brogues, lilts, dropped and carried aitchs, high and low and un churched haggis loving or loathing. And I carry the usual fear of change. And I hold to a very American prejudice that countries are better off staying as united as possible. That might come from the way we're taught the causes and results of the American Civil War 1860-1865.

But-

I worked with a Scot a few years ago, and other than being one of the few yanks who could understand him the first time, he was full of attitude about the English. And he felt that they were full of attitude about the Scots.

So. . .

In the light of recent votes while I very much think it's in the Scots' (and everyone elses') interests to maintain the Union, I can see that it is by no means a sure thing.
