Thread Name: Flower of Scotland, official?
Subject: RE: Flower of Scotland, official?
A slight over reaction Mr Gnome. Having suffered abuse in Scotland myself purely for being English I was remarking on the animosity I sense in the English to all this. "Flower of Scotland" is just another manifestation. Unfortunately I foresee many problems in the near future between the two countries, particularly political, that could lead to a break up of the Union. To many, both Scot and English this would be seen as no bad thing. However, division always leads to altercation and violence of one form or another. So I consider, as do many, that the choice of a song that perpetuates hatred and celebrates death is not a good thing for any of us.
