How unBritish Can You Get?

Prime Minister Brown has tried to distance himself from the far right, the BNPs and the UKIPs and suchlike because they promote Britain to the extreme, but in fact the distance he wishes to create is an illusion - there is none. The PM is as far right as they are in upholding unBritish values and waving the unBritish union flag. His desire for unBritishness to be inculcated into the battered psyche of the unBritish nation (as it is called) is quite unbelievable and unaccountable to those of us who reject his unBritish pretensions, for after all the PM is a Scot, along with a surprising number of fellow Scots who forsook the chance to proclaim independence for the Scottish nation by flocking to the SNP, but instead trooped to Westminster to govern Scotland from a very unBritish redoubt. It has fallen to the SNP and their merry band of political cohorts, under the wise and canny guidance of their incorrigible leaders, Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, to raise the Saltire banner and show those unBritish retrogressives how out of step they are with the mood of the peoples of the Celtic Twilight.
Why are they so unBritish, do you ask?
The British are the Welsh, the Cornish, the Cumbrians and the Scots of Strathclyde!


* Note 1: Strathclyde was a Brythonic kingdom, while Argyll was the heartland of the Gaelic kingdom of Dál Riata having been taken over, probably from Picts. Bute and Arran were Brythonic until appropriated by Dál Riata, then by Scandinavians. See Scottish people.
