True 2 years ago - still true now...

I like these older articles, particularly when years later, nothing has changed....!

For quite some time now, I've been a little bit embarrassed at the situation in UK.
Although I have very little - or rather nothing at all - to do with the place, I would have
to be blind and deaf not to notice the influence of certain people in all aspects of daily life in that  "green and pleasant land" - England  note well, just England, not Britain.

Seems that the English have now finally woken up to the fact that they are a part
of the UK, and not vice-versa!
And.......It seems they don't like it! 
Lots of mutterings are going on about another one of those "United Kingdoms"!
A little place, that up till recently had to be content with being a sort of
Englishman's Castle, a place where the Englishman could drain off all natural
resources, and pour the results into his own coffers, and from there - down
the sink! A place where the natural inhabitants were considered to be "fair
game" for anyone who wandered north of Carlisle!

Scotland - The Brave!  Scotland of the "Gay  Gordons" , home of Haggis and Robert Burns, of "wee timid wicked creatures" , of North Sea Oil (all gone now, apparantly) -
Scotland has been awoken, and by purely peaceful means,

 (peaceful Scots)

has got around to seeing it's own Parliament installed, with its own "President" - PM - Chairman, or whatever you wish to call it.
And this has got up the neighbour's nose!

Suddenly Scottish men and women and children are not obliged to obey laws and rules
passed by people who live hundreds of miles away, and many of whom have never crossed
the Border!
And they like it........................................very much..........!
Suddenly the Scots are getting free medecines which the English have to pay for, and
other treatments for "free" which the English grudgingly pay up for - or go without!
Worst of all, for the English, is the fact that wherever they look in their "green and pleasant" land, all they can see - in charge, and running their place, are SCOTSMEN and
SCOTSWOMEN!     (not happy!)
I understand that even the ex-PM, Tony Blair, was of Scottish origins, and I'm not even
going to start making a list of Scottish people, in England, who are household names,
worldwide, in all aspects of public life.
This is a "notebook" article, and "notebook" wouldn't be large enough to take it all!
I do, however, have a suggestion to make to the envious English (and knowing them as I do,
they won't like that one little bit).
Why not do the same?
(all candidates...)
You could have  Brucie Forthsythe as PM (if you'd started earlier, you could even have had Ken Dodd, or Jimmy Saville) or you could simply name the Queen as PM, or one of the Prince's.
They must have enough clout to get things rolling! Hang on - they've all got Scottish blood, haven't they? (apart from one who's got a touch of Greece in there...lots of German as well...)
Anyway, I'm sure you'll be able to find somebody, somewhere, of English blood to run all
the necessary things, like Health Services, London Transport, Wastebin emptiers etc.,
You know - all those jobs no English person in their right minds would ever consider doing!
On the whole, I think I'll just stay here, at least until I need a free room in a Nursing Home!
(I'm sure there are many of you, who will read this, and say - He needs that room
RIGHT NOW - Maybe, but MINE will be at least FREE OF CHARGE!)
