Unfortunately part of the United Kingdom since 1707. Scotland is a small, underpopulated yet beautiful country of 5 million souls. Not all however are strictly scottish due to mass emigration forced and voluntary and mass immigration, mostly Irish. Scotlands indigineous people were celtic. One original tribe, the "picts" and the other the "scoti" (originally from Ireland) their two royal families intermarried and created a united Scotland. The lifestyle of the picts was retained i.e tartan whereas the language of the scoti became dominant gadhlig or scottish gaelic as it is now known. Scotland has been proven to be almost completely unconquerable with its mountainess landscape and fierce natives. The Romans could only invade about 2/5 of scotland and the english, however hard or often they tried could never get a decent foothold on this great land and were always eventually repelled. Scotland was sold down the river by its nobles and joined with England to form the UK. England had tried building an Empire before the union but had made a hash of it. With Scotland on board they got somewhere due to oh lets see. 1. Use of what many consider to be the best soldiers in the world (the English are now so jealous they want to disband the scottish regiments and merge them into one).
2.use of Scotlands rich land and resources.
3.her people: hardworking, tough, resilient, intelligent( John Logie baird, look up scottish inventors and you'll get the picture)
4.ruthless.( Look at what the Scots did when they settled in Ulster, Ireland)
5. scootish industrial muscle i.e the clyde shipyards.
Scots are a proud people who litter the globe especially north america and australia.
Scotland is a divided country however. Religiously scotland was originally catholic but reformed to protestantism. Many remianing catholics emmigrated after the 45 and highland clearances. Today most of scotlands catholics (750,000) are of irish decent. Many protestants in scotland are also of irish decent( confusingly many have scottish names as scots settled in ireland).These protestants are usually loyal to the queen and the union with england, go on orange walks to celebrate protestantism and the battle of the boyne in 1690, thus the irish catholics hate this and this causes sectarianism in scotland. irish people were generally hated by wide spectrum of the scottish protestant people when they first settled and still are by many.
most scots and inhabitants of scotland tend to want england to lose at sport
some see this as healthy/friendly rivalry some dont. some scots hate english altogether whereas the majority of scottish nationalists just want scotland to be "free" in the words of mel gibson and independent from the rest of the uk. this frustration however makes many prone to disliking english people. scotland has its own parliament but its powers are mickey mouse and can be over ruled by the uk one.
fact1.- scotland needs more people but not english, anyone else especially those of scots decent.
fact2. - scotland WOULD be better of alone outside the uk like ireland is. reasons include north sea oil reserves remaining and the money the uk would owe back from what its wasted. scotlands potential to be european leader in wind energy.Scotland would not need to spend billions like it is just now on armed forces, scotland doesnt need an army: we'll remain neutral like ireland unlike tony blair. hey if the uk invade the un will deal with it or indeed George.W. will as he is of his proud scots heritage (as most texans are)

UNfortunately too many people in scotland believe the scare tactics the Unionist political parties spew up about independence for scotland and too many are also ignorantly loyal to a certain party i.e irish catholics and labour party( Unionist, yes it is strange isn't it... loyal catholic irishmen....) or indeed loyal to "britishness" and the queen ( orangemen and other english buttkissers) they dont seem to realise their being laughed at by english jingoists.
Scotland, its people and its problems. aye

Glasgow Celtic FC: Football/Soccer team supported by mainly Scottish catholics (with or without irish decent, although commonly with) and every plastic paddy around the globe. Fans of this team often sing pro IRA songs. Now Pro- Irish Republican Songs are not really offensive to most like minded Rangers fans and indeed non rangers/celtic fans in scotland, however, pro -IRA/terrorist stuff is!!!!
Glasgow Celtic FC: founded by an irish monk in glasgow to help support poor irish immigrants in 1888.
GCFC: claim to be a scottish side however youd be hard pushed to find any of their fans flying the blue and white saltire at their stadium (the scottish flag for those of you who are thick or just american) instead it is a sea of tricolours (rep of ireland flags) and other irish flags. It's particuarly strange and I suppose sad that a sizeable portion of these guys have little or no irish blood in them, being scottish catholics of scottish blood. Ok most catholics in scotland now are of irish decent but it wasnt always that way. (see definitions of Scotland by bigmanofscotland for more info on this)
What it is I am saying is that it is ok to fly the odd irish flag if u happen to be one of those paddies who get the ferry over for the celtic games every weekend to keep the "culture" or "heritage" of the club alive but for gods sake not if ur anyone else. However if u do then ur just the same as the rest of the worlds plastic paddies: like the ones in the US for example who go to see celtic play when their in town because its an IRISH thing to do. So thats why GCFC is not a scottish team and thus why they are disliked and found irritating at the least.

PS. thankyou NEW ENGLAND REVS for inventing the great chant "where in ireland is glasgow" = GENIUS, spot on and well done. thats all i can say.
Celtic, Ireland, Irish, Plastic paddies, catholic, scotland,
