Tension between Scotland and the UK

Scotland was a Petri dish for free market experiments ahead of England:
-State subsidies were pulled from loss-making mining, steel and textile industries.
-Scotland was handed the poll tax in 1989 - one year ahead of England.
The poll tax
(a.k.a. Community Charge)

It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can't even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won't make any fucking difference!
