Northumbrian Independence Party

Kingdom_of_Northumbria_in_AD_802When the Scots get their independence and England no longer has to subsidize them, the Scots south of the border are then in an interesting position.  

They’re then foreigners along with the Romanians, Poles, Nigerians, Asians etc.

Take a Scot who’s been here all his life, he’s paid into the national coffers, he even speaks close to passable English and he sees himself as British.   What does he think of all this?

And when those north of the border in their wild animal luxury discover the EU is bankrupt and no more dole money will be forthcoming, what will they do?   March south?

And what of Kernow and Wales?   Will giant walls be built along the Tamar and through Monmouthshire?

Also, will a new wall be built from just south of Gretna to north of Berwick?

Naturally, the Scots will have to cede Edinburgh and it becomes the Northumbrian Tattoo, Lothian is within the kingdom and all’s well with the world.

    I am not too keen on that flag. Maybe a bottle of Newcastle Brown through the model of the Sydney Harbour Bridge would be more recognisable. Let’s just hope they don’t invade Cumbria to steal their water.

    Not going to bite, James. Indulge your dream whilst mine becomes a reality.

    Amfortas – no, Cumbria can have its water. How about the tartan though?

    Having lived for many years in Cornwall, I can assure you that the wall there already exists; it’s just that foreigners* can’t see it.

    *ie the English and anyone else who has the misfortune not to be Cornish.

    (By way of illustration, when a friend married a Cornishman, they spent their honeymoon at Land’s End because he had never been east of the Tamar – or ‘abroad’, as he called it – and saw no reason why that should change.)

    Who had the idea of pinching the Catalan flag?

    Meant to be gold and purple in vertical stripes. The Catalan flag is:

    Problem was the Percys who confused the issue and brought red and gold into it. They themselves were blue and gold. But the colours recorded by Bede were alternate purple and gold vertical stripes [eight in all].

    Northumberland was a later Norman invention, meant to split Northumbria as a kingdom. Harrying of the north. Hence I’ll not recognize Northumberland as an entity, much less their bastardization of the Bernician colours. Deira had no major issues with Bernicia and the nice part was that it included Berwickshire and East Lothian – nice part of the world. Scots don’t need it.
