    It's just tries to prove that the scheme didn't fail because of Scottish incompetence. In the real world many schemes don't fail because of incompetence but because competing forces win. TBH I don't believe the thesis, it's bias is set out right from that start. I find it hard to believe this is the definitive article on the Darien Scheme.

    The Scottish need to stop blaming the English for all their issues and take responsibility.

                    They banned being a Cockney? Can we ban Welsh too?

                      no, it's just that the original definition of being a Cockney was that they had to be born within earshot of Bow Bells. The originals were destroyed in WW2 and new ones were cast in 1956.
