RIP Scots Pride, 19 September 2014
Hee hee! Hah hah! Hee hee!
The Scots dinnae want to be free!
They’d rather go on under English yoke
And they’ll be obliged with that; what a joke
Scots nationalism has turned out to be.
Hee hee! Hah hah! Hah hah! Hee hee!
(Only kidding, Scotland. Didn’t mean to tread on your bruised dignity.)
So, nearly half of Scots voted Yes for independence. Scottish population is estimated at 5,254,800 in 2011. So, 2365000 Scots have had their dreams shattered. Winston Churchill allegedly said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried. And yes, there are worse ways of governing. But when you’re dealing with a large population, you can end up with large numbers of people losing out. No, I don’t know how to run things better. But I don’t need to be a Jack Russell to know when I smell a rat…
