"Scotland regularly tops international comparisons - only it's never for anything good. Just off the top of my head, we have the highest blocks of flats in western Europe (and they're not nice); more strokes and heart-attacks; more drug abuse; more murders; Glasgow City Council, before it got rid of them, was the biggest slum landlord in western Europe; we have the lowest life-expectancy, and not just in western Europe; surely the most goddamn expensive regional parliament on the face of the planet; I think if I remember rightly, one of the highest rates of teenage pregnancy in the world - and even this can't halt population decline; and now we're making a bid to have the crappiest teeth in Europe.
Do pop into the comments box and tell me that it's all the fault of the English and this wouldn't be happening if only the Jacobites had won...."
