John Oliver On Scotland

Raw Story recaps:

“So Scotland and England have been involved in something of a 300-year-old arranged marriage,” he explained, “And look, I will be the first one to acknowledge, England has been a little bit of a dick since the honeymoon. In 1746, we actually banned the kilt, just because we knew they liked it. And then, we chose ‘God Save the King’ as the U.K.’s national anthem, a song which, at one point, had a verse referencing ‘rebellious Scots to crush.’ Although, to be fair, we later realized that was wrong and replaced it with a line about pissing on the Welsh.” Oliver mocked the name of the campaign designed to keep Scotland a part of the UK, “Better Together,” saying “it sounds like what people say to convince themselves to stay in a dead marriage.”
