Seems that England's brainwashing techniques managed to eradicate the Scottish identity. :huffy:

I feel sorry for them.

I'd take any story about British history that was written by an Australian anti-Semite nutcase with a big pinch of salt if I were you. ;)

I mean, Braveheart's a great movie, but it's about as historically accurate as Forrest Gump.

You might be surprised, I know more about history than you may think. It's not about the movie but the fact that the world started to change in the right direction.

...Until the English brainwashing stopped it? Why feel sorry for the Scottish and blame the English? We both have to suffer under the same crappy government together; at least Scotland had a chance of getting out...

I don't have a strong opinion either way and I certainly don't know enough about economics to predict what would happen should Scotland become independent, but it's certainly a lot more complicated than just "brainwashing". The fact they had a vote at all is progress, and the fact that the vote was so close is surely going to have huge ramifications.

Generally, I'm in favour of less borders, not more. But I can certainly see the appeal of escaping Westminster government; god knows I'd be more than happy if all of Westminster just got swallowed up by the ground. But I do know for sure that the whole current business has nothing at all to do with the real William Wallace, let alone Mel Gibson's fantasy portrayal of him.

Jabels is Scottish, and I know he loves talking about this subject... would you say youse guys were brainwashed by the English, Jabels? ;)
