The Penny’s Dropped

! This post was written some time ago. I don't delete old posts but bear in mind that a lot can change in a year or more, including my opinions (and the amount of naughty words I use).

    Shared values is right – problem is the rest of the UK is sharing Englands wallet… time to cut them loose.

    “And just as America is strengthened by the institutes that encourage discussion on the very idea of America, an Institute for Britishness could encourage debate on our identity, and what documents from Magna Carta onwards mean for today.”

    Alex Salmond’s right in a way, but Broon’s playing this for an English audience not a Scottish one. Look I’m really a Briton, I’m not Scottish, I’m British, British I tell you. In his references to the history of Britain, (started 1707), Broon is always referring to the Magna Carta, (written 1215), a very English document to prove how British-English are his loyalties. Notice he doesn’t refer to the Declaration of Arbroath at all. Too Scottish I’m afraid and definitely not a document supporting Britishness

    The man’s got no spine and he’s unlikeable, but if he contributes towards the breakup of the Union I’ll toast him every time I use my Scottish passport.

    It would be laughable if he weren’t serious.
