Comments

In the paper this morning, a Scottish schoolboy told to cover up a Union Jack T-shirt because it was sectarian. It was a non-uniform day and his French teacher sent him to the headmaster who told him to wear a jumper over it. He rang his father who took him home and is waiting for an apology from the school and teacher.

I assume you have this photo too.
Queen better than Obama

In urban Scotland, a Union flag means you support Rangers, which means you're a Protestant, which means you want to beat up all "Tims", ie Catholics.

So actually it IS sectarian.

That's why you see so many Union flags in Glasgow - it's not so much that they support HM (though they do like her - she's referred to as "Gran") but really so as to display their footballing allegiance.

In rural areas (and possibly in Edinburgh, at least the posher parts) a Union flag means what you think it means, so these comments don't apply.

Local knowledge is everything...

(oh and btw all Scottish schoolchildren are segregated at age 5 or so, between Prod and Tim primary schools. The Tim ones get more money from the state. And you thought wee Eck wanted to stop all this sectarianism? Gullible you...)

I don't care for your system much (or I'd likely live there!) but how can you not love her?

Wouldn't want to break into her chamber and sit on her bed.

really nice posting submitted here.

thanks,
