Paxman – English don’t Care about Union

Jeremy Paxman, author of The English, has claimed we would no longer care if Scotland was to go its own way. And that we have been denied a say on the UK’s constitutional arrangements. He is of course completely correct, in my view. While surveys show support for the Union, what they show to me is apathy either way.

The article quotes Alex Salmond

“England will lose a surly lodger and gain a good neighbour”

Bring it on.

  1. Absolutely.

    Good on Paxo for that – bet his bosses aren’t impressed though.

  2. ““England will lose a surly lodger and gain a good neighbour”

    I very much doubt it, the mcbuggers will find something to whinge about

  3. Well Hotspur if they want to whinge then it is their business, as long as their whinging no longer means we have to let them vote on our matters or spend more money on them so they feel better, I will be happy.

  4. Yeah, let them whine. They are always going to complain and piss and moan about something. They can’t help it.
    I think we’ll enjoy goading them when we’re free of them.
    I have always wanted to go to scotland as a foreigner complete with passport and travel bag because that’s what it is, a foreign country.
    I think it’ll benefit everyone when both people’s have their freedom. There should certainly be a lot less to argue about that’s for sure.

  5. We’ll always have plenty to moan and complain about, and it’ll be far more important than mere finance or politics – we’ll still greet like weans every time you lot hump us at football or rugby (Calcutta excepted) or cricket or pygmy-chucking or whatever.

  6. Pigmy chucking – sounds fun, let me know when the next match is. I haven’t found the sport that I am good at yet, maybe that is it!
