"It's SH*TE being Scottish!" Picture: TSPL

“It’s SH*TE being Scottish!

We’re the lowest of the low.

The scum of the f**king Earth!

The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever sh*t into civilization.

Some hate the English. I don’t. They’re just w**kers.

We, on the other hand, are COLONISED by w**kers. Can’t even find a decent culture to be colonised BY!

We’re ruled by effete a***holes.

It’s a SH*TE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won’t make any f**king difference.”
