I'm running a sweep for how many minutes it will take for someone to come on and blame England for it. I'll take 8.5

Christ - you're as much of a bellend as that pillock Skippy - the one who had Celtic under the cosh for ninety minutes against Astana.
England's involvement in the failure of the Darien project is a matter of historical record - trust some thick hun to try to rewrite history to pretend it never happened.. (psst...L-I-Q-U-I-D-A-T-I-O-N)

getting this back on track, the article is actaully very accurate.

the colony in panama WAS a phukkin disaster, and it was one that we found it hard to get over.

look at the money that was chucked away on phukk all.....and led to 1000's o scots (and irish) signing there lives away as indentured labour (AKA SLAVES) in order to pay off debts.

There are still descendants o these poor sods alive in the caribbean, treated as less than 2nd class citizens.....how comes you never hear there story?

It is accurate - and it also details the horrendous blackmail Scotland was under to join this 'union'.

"Please wonderful Scotland - come and join our lovely union... or you'll never sell so much as a clothes peg outside your miserable little country again..."


But the loss of Darien left Scotland with more than just empty pockets says McKendrick. He said: “Darien had a profound psychological effect on Scotland. It robbed the country of confidence.


And this is why we're sheidt at football... :D

hun filth is that angry after shellick win a game of football that they use the deaths of thousands of scots to make themselves feel better. The use of sub-human to categorise this scvm is perfectly acceptable.

If only Sir Walter was still here.

His use of holocaust photographs as commentary on Nazi style posts is perfectly acceptable

And his fish pic would come in handy as well

The Scottish traitor IQ54 can hardly hide his glee at a disaster that befell his own country and its people. What a treacherous bottom feeder,

Hey, it was just his hero King Billy looking after his countrymen. The Dutch, that is. Who cares about a few thousand Scots dying, certainly not walloper.

Being concerned for Walloper's Mental state and general well being,the next time I'm talking tae Queen Nicola I'm going tae suggest can ye no let Walloper sing his traditional Scottish Folk Song The Billy Boys,'cause He's boring the arse off everybody oan Footymad.

So now we've got England and the Netherlands to blame for the failure of Scotland's imperial expansionism.

Any advance on that?

A Dutch bloke in charge of england allows a country to die and the hun cheers. Just as well Titanic wasn't made on the Clyde. Scotland said No to Sevco, nothing else matters.

Using the deaths of people on the Titanic to score cheap points. Disgusting
