Sadly, there are some Scots who thrive on the sense of being underdogs oppressed by England which took over their country. This displays a profound
Ignorance of their own history.

The merger of the crowns of England and Scotland was instituted by King James 6 of Scotland when he also ascended to the English throne as King James 1. He came up with the title of United Kingdom and also the design of the Union Flag. So it was really Scotland absorbing England.

The Act of Union which merged the countries politically and made London its capital came about as the price Scotland paid for England giving the Scots a large amount of dosh to cover huge losses Edinburgh had incurred in its ill-judged attempt to create a colony in the Darien Peninsular in Central America. This had effectively bankrupted Scotland.

Still, the advantage of this ignorance is to fire up England's players.

I should add that I have spent some of my happiest times climbing in Scotland and still visit it regularly.

Sorry if I have been boring and strayed too far from rugby.
