I got into a Twitter tiff during the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Apparently everyone is convinced Scotland is a country.
I love Scotland and I WISH it was a country but you’re no free if you cannee do what you want. Scotland could never sell its oil to America without the profits going to London ergo, it is a country only by name. In other words, not a real country. In other words, not a country. It’ll get your ass kicked in Glasgow to say but I think it’s actually LESS patriotic to call Scotland a country. It’s like admitting you’ve fallen for London’s trickery.
I wrote about it for my column this week…
During the Olympics’ opening ceremony last week, the lady on the TV described the United Kingdom as “four countries: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.” Soon after, every country in the world paraded out wearing everything from pajamas to grass.
Great Britain was there dressed like cocaine, but I didn’t see any kilts, aprons, or bowler hats. That’s because those are what people in Great Britain’s two kingdoms (England and Scotland) and one principality (Wales) wear. I wish Scotland was a real country, but it isn’t. The word “country” has been so diluted it now means “any group of people who consider themselves a country.” Nobody is as easily fooled by this ruse as my fellow Scots.
