The Scots Have Long Memories

It looks as though the UK elections have not produced a decisive win for any party. Although the Conservatives made gains, it doesn’t seem to have been sufficient to give them a decisive majority. Those gains have all been in England. In Scotland, as far as I’m aware, they haven’t made any headway at all. I heard one of the TV pundits say this morning that when he asked Scots why they hadn’t voted Conservative, the majority of them said that they remembered what Margaret Thatcher had done to their country. Ah, the sensible Scots – would that the rest of the UK remembered their history.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
