Caution: Whiny post ahead
I’m sitting here at 9:19pm on a Saturday night. I’m bored out of my friggin skull, waiting for an online version of Megaman to load. But no, that’s not my problem.
The problem is that I now officially detest living in the UK. I even detest the phrase UK now. Almost like it’s missing an F and a C, and there should be a U after it.
Just today my national team, Scotland, lost a World Cup qualifier. Now, admittedly, it ain’t the first team Scotland had lost a match. We aren’t Brazil. But what made me sick was the way the commentators on the “British” Broadcasting Corperation went on about it.
“Scotland seemed to not have anything going right for them, but in the end it was always a one way match and Norway were the better team.”
Seriously, come on now. That’s not on. If England get beat by a team (such as France), the Scots will laugh but we won’t diss the team in such a fashion. Scotland got beat by a penalty goal and we were denied a goal ourselves (actually, this is sounding familiar, but I digress), and the commentators decided that Scotland sucked because of it.
I am watching this on BBC Scotland. BBC Scotland decided to show the England Wales game. Why? Then, a host of English pundits rip our team apart. Why? And to listen to them going on about Rooney and Beckham, I wanted to be sick.
“What level could Rooney reach? (reply) The best level.”
“No goalkeeper in the world could have saved that!”
The second in response to a kick from at least 30 yards out by DB that the goalkeeper should really have seen coming. And even if he hadn’t, how do they know that no goalkeeper in the world could have saved it?
The “United Kingdom” is a load of bollocks. Even our own parliament, the one to help “Scotland rule themselves” cannot now fly our national flag (the Saltire) because Westminster “suggested” that we shouldn’t. “Suggested”, my arse. The first minister and his cronies are morons, puppets, and charlatans, and the building cost ?410 million of the taxpayer’s money. Scotland is still, basically, ruled by England.
I don’t like the Scottish people much either. Most of them fit into the category which we call “neds” (non educated delinquents), and make life miserable for people. Cars are busted on a daily basis. You thought New York had a high crime rate, you should see Glasgow. Of course, the government(s) claim that the crime rate is down, but that’s a load of c-r-a-p.
And those who aren’t neds, who are supposed to be decent people…they’re pains in the butt. More than one person in the last week has given me the exact look of “I’m better than you” whilst at University, and the rest are all too busy getting absolutely pissed out of their skulls to care about anything.
Sometimes, I feel like I was born in the wrong country. Any of you who have seen my adorable face will see I don’t look like someone from the west of Scotland, and I don’t feel like it either.
Anyone else ever felt the same way?
