Why do you hate Scottish people?

Their hatred for the Welsh etc...

Your mum

I've met Traney.

I don't hate... Oh.

My maternal grandmother married Scottish money. Her consequent lifelong enthusiasm for all things Scottish put me right off the place and its sentimentality.

Irn-Bru.

#4 I recognise the tendency. Particularly pronounced on my mum's brother's side. I was horrified when they dressed my cousin up in a kilt. But once I'd seen past all that shortbread and tartan shite and got to the know the place myself, I found it ok. Similar enough to be navigable, different enough to be interesting.

I’d be happy to live there.

My maternal grandmother married Scottish money

was it legal tender?

indlovubill - 10 Sep 2019 19:25:33 (#9 of 26)

Scottish money IS legal tender.

barkis - 10 Sep 2019 19:31:38 (#10 of 26)

Only in Scotland.

Arjuna - 10 Sep 2019 19:33:39 (#11 of 26)

you wouldn't want to marry into money only to find they didn't accept it in the shops.

You'd have to barter by exchanging bedraggled crofters for the most basic goods

I have occasionally encountered some Scot-hate in unexpected leftish circles in England.

Middle aged men particularly exercised about that Barnett(?) Formula.

The kind of bores who bang on about the West Lothian Question?

Rendered - 10 Sep 2019 19:43:04 (#15 of 26)

As Limmy put it.

Heroin

Murder

Heart disease

Number one!

#2 I thought he was Danish or something

I have a strong dislike (I rarely hate) for some Scotch people but being Scottish myself I think that's allowed.

The Krankies

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 shat into civilisation! Some people hate the English, I don't! They're just wankers! We, on the other hand, are colonised by wankers! Can't even find a decent culture to be colonised by! We're ruled by effete assholes! 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!
