Wee Ginger Dug

About the Scottish Cringe…

WE’VE COME a long way in challenging the Cringe, but Scotland still has its newspaper columnists who confidently pontificate from a position of ignorance about Scotland’s languages, and how they are apparently not really languages at all.

Scotland’s got a lovely new bridge across the Forth, but it’s still got a British establishment whose instinctive reaction is to sneer, mock and belittle anything that’s Scottish.

It’s been twenty years since Scotland voted to restore its own parliament, but we still have a full quota of politicians and commentators whose reaction to overt displays of Scottishness is one of embarrassment combined with a deep rooted belief in the inferiority of anything Scottish.
