Yeah I put that on POBI even earlier to test the waters.  I wouldn't want to link it here tho'.

Pupil: Miss, miss, but why didn't England just invade Scotland and take if for our own.

Miss: well erm, we kept losing and couldn't even bankrupt them Into englishness.

Pupil: so you mean the i ly thing Daniel defoe managed while working as a spy in Scotland was to get a story for a novel.

Miss: uh?!

Pupil: and that the union flag is actually a sbol of English failure.


Something tells me the story prese Ted will start post treaties of union.
