  1. Bond is half Scottish half Swiss. The lassy is writing jokes she doesn't like to get laughs, thats up to her, she made it seem like the English made her do it, if you need to play to stereotypes to get laughs you must be a shite comic.

  2. That women is so silly.

     So it's all about a Scottish inferiority complex, about being a colony, about  her have to 'blackface up' in London to make a living. And she doesn't even have a vote because she lives south of the border. Independence will never remove the inferiority complex, not in a million years.

     What a complete and utter fool.

  3. Seems to me like the Scottish are pissed off with the same people the English are pissed off with. The only difference is that the Scottish have a chance to tell them to get lost.

    That and having more direct control over their own future.  Good luck with it all btw, and hope you pay a little more attention to your rich-poor divide than we did with ours.

  4. Not that this is really important in the great scheme of things but James Bond is actually Scottish in the novels and even revealed so in Skyfall. Perhaps he was getting quintessential English mixed with British which is so easy to do, and so irritating if you're from one of the other 3 countries in the union.  

  5. Norway is massively ambitious for Scotland. 

    The UK will never be like Norway. Norway has a national soveign fund of $800 billion and it will be a trillion come 2018. The UK has $2.5 trillion of national debt. 

    That comic has not got a clue. 

  6. One man had a vision of freedom for Scotland many, many moons ago.
    Move forward 2 or 3 centuries  and Alex Salmond wants to persuade all you Scots to vote for independence. What a prick!!!! 
    We are in a society of intellect, knowledge, understanding, contribution, free health care, free housing, strong economy in the World but we are…..UNITED KINGDOM!!!

    This Salmond prick will ruin the lives of many in Scotland.
    Patriotism and heart is all good and courageous in a competitive sport but this is everyday life!! Better the devil you know than the ones you don't.
    Scotland already have a lot of power to conduct their own affairs but there is something not right about Alex Salmond,  all I see is someone who wants to be your Prime Minister or President of Scotland and be famous for leading you to independence !!
    What will happen is that the shit will hit the fan and he will retire somewhere nice with a big pension while the generations after him will have to pick up the mess he has made for Scotland due to being independent.
    The poor in Scotland will still be poor no matter how much the yes party will tell you that they wont.
    Every society in the world will have poor and rich people.
    My honest opinion is that I hope the people in Scotland will vote no…..

    United and prosperous we stand thru good times and the bad.

  7. Fern Brady is, perhaps, the most thick piece of shit I've had the misfortune to step in. Scotland – a battered wife at the hands of an abusive English husband, the Union is getting old?! Its the constant cries of victimisation and anti-English sentiment from the nationalists that people in Scotland are sick of. These airhead, pseudo-leftist, shamelessly demagogic separatists would run Scotland into the ground given the opportunity, but the results of next months referendum will show them that they do not speak for the majority of the Scottish population.

     I only hope that an even stronger United Kingdom emerges from ashes of their defeat, with further devolved powers in matters of exclusively Scottish concern, and Westminster retaining power over affairs which affect everyone in our 800 mile long island. E pluribus unum! 

  8. Given that Norway came highest in the Legatum institutes World Prosperity index (a London based think tank for those that don't know) and the UK came 14th, I don't think it's lacking ambition to want to emulate them. Lacking ambition is wanting to stay part of a system of political governance that has parts of Scotland (and England and Wales) poorer than Bulgaria. Lacking ambition is not being prepared to take control of your own destiny.

  9.

  11. would the battered wife not have been Ireland. they got treated worse than scotland or wales which was not allowed to keep its laws or language whislt scotland got to keep law and religious authourity. izzard labour missy not tory. I want a independant scotland but not. worried that if they go independant they will be deemed to have fucked up when wales wants to go thereby making it harder for wales to eb independant but if they say no then its harder for wales as they will say bigger scotland with oil said no what hope do you have. need the english to go independant then the rest can. as for the other comdian we are a very disfunctional family if that is the case.

  12. " being like Norway is not ambition for me " ? ?
    The highest standard of living in the world, highest pay ? Best healthcare, education, least crime ? The entire effing WORLD has a BURNING ambition to be EXACTLY like Norway ! If only.
    Which planet does this half-wit come from ?

  13. Andy Todd's words have been censored/redacted. Go to 2:32 just after where he says, "… that's not ambition to me…" In the original he goes on to talk about Qatar being a better role model than Norway because it grabbed 2022 World Cup. No doubt he was playing devil's advocate(he is a lawyer) but that's irrelevant. This footage has been censored by Channel 4. It's the same on their catchup page, they've cut several seconds out of it.

  14. hmmm i think its a wee hypocritical that on the one hand England wants to distinguish itself from Europe Union but expects the Scots to lay down on this independence issue. And the pretty Lass is quite right … those foocking tories are a pack of wankas and they nay can see their ugly face and arses discharging the same mook ….. shyte !!!!
