Doncaster is actually Scottish, it turns out. I always had my suspicions that they were a bit different.

At least Doncaster Rovers should do well in the SPL.

Poor old Willie, not so much out of his depth but drowning !

As has been noted before Willie, shouting and insults don't work with grown ups.

Try debating like an adult, or stick to your schoolfriends for debate.

If it had been anyone else except you, I'd have been quite flattered by their going out of their way to read my posts on entirely unrelated topics, but unfortunately it was you Willie ,so no ego boost for me I'm afraid .

The Daily Telegraph has printed some QI facts about Scotland today.

A few points for the first person who can show any of those facts to be wrong.

Arguing that Alexander Graham Bell was at least as Canadian as he was Scottish, or that Byron was but tenuously Scottish and in reality more English, are cheap and will not score the points. (Much as both are entirely valid.)

There are a couple that I have my eye on, but I'm sure others can get there before I do.

You are correct Suze. I posted the link to provoke discussion.

For example the first European banknotes were issued by Stockholms Banco, a forerunner of the Bank of Sweden (1661) before the Bank of Scotland existed (It was founded in 1695).
