Vandaag stemmen de Schotten over hun mogelijke aanstaande onafhankelijkheid. Spannend! Zie op Metafilter dat ik niet de enige ben die aan Trainspotting moest denken.
It’s SHITE being Scottish! We’re the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don’t. They’re just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can’t even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We’re ruled by effete arseholes. It’s a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won’t make any fucking difference!
Update: ze hebben nee gezegd..
Been watching History Of Scotland on the BBC these past few weeks. Presented by Neil Oliver and his fab accent. Fascinating story. I’d love to see something like that on Dutch television, on our history. On a related note, I wanted to mention the Wikipedia page for Genetic history of the British Isles, which is fascinating and also reminded me that I’d like to take part in the Genographic Project, to find out more about my roots.
