I disappointed that majority of Scottish people didn't vote for independence. London took advantages over its internal colonies. In case of Scotland, beside of harassment, Englishes owe Scotland a lot - oil, sea ports, agricultural products, and else. Please consider to do the voting again.

Can they vote on how annoying the bagpipe is? Instead of using weapons to win a battle use bagpipes and your enemies and allies will never go near u again.

If Scotland got there independence they would have been fucked because soon after the independence vote was finished the oil prices dropped

His interpretation of the thistle as the nation flower isn’t far off. The actual story is that the Welsh were attacking a camp of Scots at night and one of them stepped in a thistle, causing him to make a large noise and wake up the Scots. Because of the advanced warning, the Scots won the battle

John, John you fucking utter four eyed idiot. The Scots created the Conservative party, “Tory” being a term for a Jacobite supporter. And Scotland voted overwhelmingly Tory for most of the 20th Century, you fucking moronic, drivel talking cunt.

Controversial? Because becoming one nation stopped the stupid wars STARTED BY THE SCOTS, which they kept losing.

I know funny..this is it..but no matter WHO played Scotland's hero in the movie..England did take away their freedom..also used them up to zilch..so..just let the folks go..cause you know that when they will have no oil AND no landlife of anykind left in them..England will be the one to say"we don't want ya anymore..run alo g away now..and don't come back..unless you have something for uz again.." So it is as funny as it is the final, most last moment to while still have simething of yours and needed in the pocket...but maby that's just me..

You know nothing about British history. For several hundred years, the Scots and the English kept having tiny wars with each other - no-one's fault in particular, that's just what countries used to do. Some English kings did claim overlordship of Scotland, but it was never really acted upon. Then in the 1600s, King James V of Scotland was asked by the English to take the English throne, which created a personal union of crowns. About a century later, after Scotland had got itself into a huge amount of debt following an attempt to establish Scottish colonies in North America, the English and Scottish parliaments both passed laws abolishing themselves, and creating a new parliament of the United Kingdom. No-one 'took' anyone else's freedom, both England and Scotland decided to form a union, and we're a hell of a lot better for it.

Apparently, the Scots chose the Unicorn as the National Animal for a very Scottish reason. According to Wikipedia: "The unicorn was chosen because it was seen as a proud and haughty beast which would rather die than be captured."
This vídeo is now four years and one day old
So what now when there if God allows it we make iron Cution around UK, and then when Scotland and N Ireand leave around England and Wells, what happens then. Apparently, BREXIT was made to destroy the UK, UK that however genocidal union was and is member of Europe family forever. Why did we allow this to happen? WHY?

Frank Bowman  This is true. I've no issues at all with the EU. They are competent unlike the yahoos in Westminster who haven't a clue what they are doing with this brexit madness.
Frank Bowman (19 days ago)
Well, at least you folks don't have a knee-jerk separatist attitude about all this. In my opinion, the world desperately needs more unity, not less, and although it has its flaws, the European Union may be vitally important to the Earth's future, especially with the erratic and totally unreliable US and the rise of un-democratic China.

I love the Scots as a people..and Hate england as it's Diana killung, just to make furure princes look somewhat human after the inquisition - The queen = black(not even grey) cardinal of the world conspiracy - wich is no longer, even, hidden from the world! And probubly - very soon will be presented as the final solution for the Earth (our Mother) not to turn on it's axis - although it's already started..but the thing here, you see.. is that Empires fall and the world says that America is the last empire to fall because (this now is very important fact!) Because Muslim faith is the next to "enquisit" the earth...they'r not hiding it either and the "muslim effect" is growing alarmingly so in all the world so if anything (my own opininon..judge as you pleese)WE ALL SHOULD UNITE! STOP STRAPING ONE FROM OTHER WHAT WE CAN ALL VERY EFFECTIVELY SHARE AND USE + UNIFIED WORLD FORUM..WHERE(TODAY) EVERY ONE CAN ACTUALLY STAND AS A VOTE AND DESIDE THE FATE OF OUR HOLE MOTHER-WORLD TOGETHER FOR THE BENEFIT OF FUTURE GENERATIONS..CAUSE OTHERWISE EARTH WILL SAY "ahh..worned you so many times didn't I?" And turn = we all die..deflicted from scotland and england (you know.."ukranian style") but beg all who would listen..and can read..please consider all the above! + watch "black mirror" + just stop letting clowns that make you laught by saying stupid jokes with aserious face - lead you to nothing nowhere for ever with final words like "what eeveer.." PEACE

We chose the unicorn because the English national animal is a lion and Unicorns are the enemy of lions. The thistle was chosen because when we were being invaded by vikings one of them stepped on a thistle alerting us to their presence so we could fight them off.

Scotland lost the independence vote because of foreigners working here being aloud to vote in the election ,they of course voted to stay with the pound as they were frightened by the unionists that if Scotland got independence the would be payed in euros, a damned lie of course by scottish tories and unionists ,lib, lab, ect. So let,s have another vote without foreigners getting to vote and lets see the outcome then.

Jock Duff (2 months ago)
It's a written comment, I can't control what tone you draw from it without some emotional descriptions that really aren't needed. I haven't insulted you, I've only shown mild frustration at some questionable comments, which is not unreasonable.
Clare (2 months ago)
And nothing you said requires the combative and personally insulting tone your comments have, and yet here we are.
Jock Duff (2 months ago)
If you don't like comments, don't post on a public forum. Better yet, don't strop off when you're proven wrong while claiming to know about something. None of this requires a "dissertation" only the basic ability to look something up.
Clare (2 months ago)
I'm sorry let me just get down here and write a dissertation on specific occurrences, influences, and outcomes of history for a youtube comment to respond to someone who clearly wants to argue when I don't. Not a waste of my time at all. For a youtube comment. I'm done with this.
Jock Duff (2 months ago)
Sure, the problem is that there's having an opinion and then there's deliberately misrepresenting history. Because while you threw out some very generic and unspecified occurrences, if I was to ask you to go into any detail about those your opinion would very quickly be proven wrong. Because, as you said, context is everything and you don't provide any. Want an example? The imprisonment of the Covenanters at Greyfriars, your one semi-specific example, was done under the Scottish government by Scottish leaders because the Scottish parliament was still in existence and would be for another thirty years or so. Firmly a Scottish matter you seem eager to blame on the English for some reason.

Shaun Designs (2 months ago)
I can assure you if we have another referendum we will leave. West Minster were sucking up to us to stay because it would be bad for them if we left then they go and leave the EU... Now Scotland and the rest of Britain get dragged out of the EU because England voted leave.
Jock Duff (2 months ago)
Not overly, no. If turnout for Remain had been better in Scotland, N. Ireland and Wales the result could have been changed. England had the highest turnout in terms of percentage. Statements like yours are lazy and look to shift the blame. Don't do it. Edit: Here let us do some quick math. The number of winning votes was roughly 1.3 million. Roughly 1 million people voted in the Scottish Independence referendum who didn't vote in the EU one. If they went remain you'd wipe out a large part of the lead just by that. You'd also have nearly another 400,000 people left in Scotland alone who could have voted, and if they had done so, overturned the vote.
Shaun Designs (2 months ago)
Jock Duff whether or not any other country voted yes or no we still would have got dragged out of the EU.

Republican: Daddy worshipping, Traditionalist, Alchemy snorting, Syon living Rome Building Mother-F'ers The search for Anakin Skywalker continues. Go, Democrats! Remember what happened to the Roman Empire, my friends! It is right that America turns to a Democrat state. Say, bye, bye traditionalists for the sabers of truth are SMARTER and STRONGER. Republicans will be running like Luke and Leia...guns belong to Democrats and even Pythagoras had to tolerate Rome. These revolutionaries crave stability and would pass a thousand Republicans to achieve its appearance. We should show them that there is little stability in its embracing. Come to the Dark Side, Luke, and realize all is lost...for Babylon is filled with Democrats and Chemists building atomic bomb after bomb. Go back to Rome, Republican daddies, or embrace the dark side! I don't know about the plastic surgery and anal entry, but if you think it's a Democrat or Babylon perspective you should check history and maybe join the Republicans! We are cyborgs and A.I. and abstinence. Franklin said an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and I don't think you can conquer licentiousness. Too controversial and gross for Democratic viewpoints right now. That's the price you pay for those choices and I don't think it will even be accepted by Democrats. Do you expect chemists to drink their own bathtub product or carry their own musket pouders?

President Trump's mum was a Scot; no WONDER he hates the English so much. The feeling's mutual, of course. If they'd known how he was going to behave beforehand during his recent unpopular visit, some of the people he claims to admire certainly wouldn't have given him the kind of reception he thinks he deserves. The Queen would have set the corgis on him; Prince Phil would have shot him; Churchill would've punched him on the jaw (jaw); Maggie Thatcher would have smacked him with a brick-filled handbag, ripped off his nuts and fed them to the aforementioned corgis. Sorry, that was fake news. I wonder if he knows what a Glasgow Kiss is...

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
