The Scottish independence referendum (2014) might well have gone the other way

From the perspective someone with a 50 percent British, 25 percent Irish and 25 percent Scottish bloodline, living half a world away Down Under in the antipodes, and still trying to understand the history and culture of those sceptered isles ...

Do the Brits really understand the Scots? ... Probably not, as this video makes clear.

If the video had been broadcast on Scottish TV even a few times in the lead-up to the referendum, it's quite possible that the vote would have gone the other way!

  1. "Do the Brits really understand the Scots?" - the Scots are British so it's a daft question.

  2. I stand corrected, Colin, forgive a mere colonial.

    I assume that I should have asked: "Do the English really understand the Scots?" (Or is that wrong too?)
