Three Native Rhode Islanders Commenting From the Right on Politics and Anything Else

Happy Tricentennial England and Scotland

Posted by Mike on January 16, 2007

Today (at least where I’m sitting) is the three hundredth anniversary of the Union between England and Scotland. The relationship between the two has been troubled at times. Even today, a strong sense of nationalism remains in both countries. Mainstream politicians are doing their best to celebrate the union, however, opinion over the future of the United Kingdom is divided. Although opinion on the subject has fluctuated on both sides, it seems that much of the UK doesn’t seem to care.

It’s a shame. This was a pretty good excuse for a celebration.
