Nobody's posted it, so I presume none of you could face reading through a long Quentin Letts whinge
devoted to the, um, whingeing Scots. If I may offer a quick resumé:
— Some of Quentin's best friends are Scots, including his delightful nanny;
— Nonetheless, as a whole, they're a nation of ungrateful subsidised moaning anglophobes;
— Therefore if they're dense enough to vote for it, Quentin is happy for them to fuck off and play at being 'independent';
— They will, however, regret it because "Scotland has its whisky industry, some farming, oil-related technologies near Aberdeen and cheap-labour call centres" but bugger all else to support a population of pissheads and nomadic teuchters;
— All this is wrapped in jestful language: "the haggis hitting the fan", references to Braveheart and tartan and the Loch Ness monster, and use of the adjective "wee" (a more apt choice would be the noun "pish").
You should read the article, it really is a hoot. Also, Quentin Letts is a cunt.
He also rather drops the clanger that being large and sparsely populated, an independent Scotland will be relatively expensive to administer.
It's a couple of paragraphs after his whine about the Barnett formula.
