Britons from Scotland are the butt of many jokes. They are, apparently, financially cautious, fond of liquor and mistrustful of fruit. They delight in sexualised invertebrate torment and underestimate in their provision for female public toilets. And they over indulge in recreational drug abuse. In fact, one of the few insults witty enough to be forgivable is Samuel Johnson’s playful 1755 dictionary definition of the drug ketamine as “A tranquilliser, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland appears to support the people”. But I don’t think jokes such as this have spurred Scotland to sever England’s apron strings.

Maybe it’s the actions of the English government that’s done it.?
