Hairy Scot

Friendly Fire

Recommended Posts

When Boris Johnson, as editor of the Spectator, published a poem in 2004 calling the Scots a “verminous race” that deserved “comprehensive extermination”, he may not have imagined it could come back to haunt him 15 years later in his first weeks as prime minister.

Here is the ode which caused the furore.

James Michie’s Friendly Fire

The Scotch - what a verminous race!

Canny, pushy, chippy, they're all over the place,

Battening off us with false bonhomie,

Polluting our stock, undermining our economy.

Down with sandy hair and knobbly knees!

Suppress the tartan dwarves and the Wee Frees!

Ban the kilt, the skean-dhu and the sporran

As provocatively, offensively foreign!

It's time Hadrian's Wall was refortified

To pen them in a ghetto on the other side.

I would go further. The nation

Deserves not merely isolation

But comprehensive extermination.

We must not flinch from a solution.

(I await legal prosecution.)

Fucks sake....you would think the way the separatists go on about this that Johnson wrote it himself...they (separatists) will be spitting feathers and screaming & cursing all things 'Union' (apart from the EU you understand) from their bothies situated in their wee bit hill and glen. Wonder if the clowns who are bitching about this have actually condemned the racist, anti English comments and photos ? Doubt it very much cos the separatists are always the victims!

A predictable response.

You're quite happy to have Scots demeaned by some knob with pretensions of being a poet?

Hairy....I wouldn't wipe my arse with the paper it is written upon. Imo to be offended with shite like that actually gives it the credence it doesn't deserve....each to their own though.

you'd think the country was the sole property of cunts like that shown in the photo! Just imagine if it was Pakistan, India etc etc & NOT England.
