Scotland-the new one!

It's interesting to see how things change, and Scotland is a brilliant example of that.
I recall the "auld days" when that country was still under the "yolk" of the Englishman, but instead of doing it the Irish way, with violence, the Scots waited and finally got what was required - independance, own Parliament and much more.
They haven't wasted the opportunity, and a more informed Country is difficult to imagine.
I receive all of their newsletters, and I'm constantly surprised by what is available in information.
Health, European matters, heritages, justice and laws, sport, agriculture, tourism......an endless list.
Now it's the English who are complaining - "it's not fair" is bleated around, but fairness wasn't on their list, regarding Scotland, for centuries....! Go have a look at what you can find....(ed)
