I used to go on conference calls with fellow staff in England and one or two would do Scottish accents when I joined the call. What would have happened if I had done an Indian accent to some of them?

I do wonder why my white, middle class media friends in London are passionately against racism but taunting the Scots is totally cool. Is it related to colonial times in that we were considered partners rather victims? I don't know.

Your mate's dad missus must have been tidier and/or dirtier than mine, I'd go with the booze..... 🤣

I did like Frankie Boyle's take on it. Don't worry, its the first joke.

Would not surprise anyone if that despicable club hired a known racist. after all they've supported most other types of low life scum in the past, sexists, rapists, false accusers etc. so why would th

Fair point BCram but Scotland is a country. We're not a region of England. Is there a difference between "filthy Pole" and "filthy Scot" in terms of offensiveness?

Ultimately, we're a tribal bunch and are far too quick to pick 'teams', whether its politics, religion, sex, sexuality, football team, Eastenders V Corrie.... as a (human) race, we're far to quick to pick things that are different over things we have in common. We've not evolved as much as we'd like to think.

Agree with this. It seems impossible to accept abuse now. Sticks and stones may break my bones are wrong, but somehow the second part,  but names will never harm me is unacceptable. People take offence now, and as you say we pick up on differences more than the things we have in common.

Good thing about this forum is that at its core is support for the club so people can stay pals and disagree.

Mein gott. Evidence of a misspent youth? Commando war comics were the biz for spotty adolescents of a certain vintage era. Unblemished types (myself included) were much more advanced in our evolution - trying to get the leg over for the first time. 😄 I wish I could be twelve years old again.
