Opinium jumping the gun on Scottish independence referendum?

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

I took part in an Opinium opinion poll last night and unusually for them got an “ethnicity” question at the end. ¬†There was something a bit wrong with it though …

Opinium Ethnicity 17-12-12

Needless to say I have expressed my disappointment to Opinium.

    I know it miffs Stuart but for the purposes of this one you are “Other British” whether you like it or not

    Actually the law says it’s up to you to define your own ethnicity.

    It must have been an opinion poll for a supermarket. Supermarkets recognise only British and Scottish, e.g. British apples but Scottish salmon/trout, British cheese but Scots whisky. Try asking for British whisky.

    Try asking for anything English. You’ll be fucking lucky……

    We buy nothing Scotch except smoked mackerel (we make and eat a lot of pate) and potatoes when there is absolutely no alternative. We also make a point of asking supermarket staff awkward questions about the labelling together with clearly audible derogatory comments about Scotch products, and people often voice their agreement.

    Absolutely true – I went to the doctors last week and was asked to fill in a customer service questionnaire. One of the questions was:

    How would you describe your sexuality?
    A Heterosexual
    B Homosexual/Lesbian
    C Bi-Sexual
    D Other

    I’ve been wondering what “other” could be. Perhaps I should have answered D and wrote “English” next to it.

    Incidentally, there is a supermarket called, appropriately enough “The English Supermarket” – The only problem is that it’s in Barcelona.
