    Having worked and socialised with the French, Germans and Scottish, I've generally found that there are fewer cultural differences between Germans/French and English, than between Scottish and English. Except for humour of course.

    We're certainly closer culturally than with the Americans.

    Indeed I have never had a German threaten tae take merrr firkin haed orrrf wi a mini Jackk. Or a French man theraten to Maissh ye uup. Get me tulip faced with Pernod yes!


    Though there are some lovely scots though. Found the German & Dutch quite close culturally they both have massive respect for engineers and the French do know about work life balance.

          True, you voted for Unicorns and cakes - but what you’ll get would be a tad different

              You need to learn to read. The Scots will get the square root of bugger-all in EU subsidies (if they get let in at all, that is) because they will be so far down the list that anything they previously got from being part of the UK will quickly become a distant memory. Their fishing industry will get pillaged even more than before, and if there is any oil left to plunder, I don't doubt the EU would hesitate in helping themselves to that as well. There is really no benefit, perceived or otherwise, in an independent Scotland being in the EU.
              The best they can hope for is a bail-out when the inevitable happens, but the costs will be punitive.
              His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
