UnNews:Salmond announces an independent Scotland would have its own flag
26 October 2012
"It's important that the people of Scotland have a flag they can identify with," he told reporters, "and we will not stop at a flag: Scottish soccer fans will no longer have to half-heartedly clap along a United Kingdom football team, they can instead roar their support for the very own team called 'Scotland'."
The official language of Scotland is also set to be changed from English to Scottish English (Scotch), which would be similar, but slower and more angry with a distinctive aroma.
Scotland’s bid for independence seems to be upsetting those south of the border, with a recent poll showing 92% of English citizens plan to shove their own heads (and those of their families) through any televisions providing mind-numbing details of the "For" and "Against" campaigns.
The independence cause is receiving support from abroad, with Frenchman Sean Connery espousing his strong support: "Shurely every shingle shane man knowsh that a Shcottish Independent Shtate is shertain to shucsheed. Shod the Shassenachs!"
Proud Scot Mel Gibson was unavailable for immediate coherent comment.
