Not ancient Scottish history at all

A missing link in ancient Scottish history’: on the trail of the Picts
Pictish stones are the relics of a long-lost civilisation, and visiting them in Scotland makes for a fascinating trip starting in Edinburgh then heading north

The Scots are the Irish invaders – modern Scotland is, in fact, Ireland’s colony. The Picts are the oppressed indigenes who should by all that’s good and Holy in modern culture, be handed back control of their own country. The invaders be damned.

Hey, if this is supposedly true of the English then it’s also true of the Irish.

  1. I did laugh when I had a tour of Rourke’s Drift years ago to learn that far from being given back to the dusky hued peeps, they should return to the bushmen…

  2. The Picts were a stoner society (magic mushrooms).

    The Scots were therefore able to easily defeat them once they put their Research points into Alcoholism.

  3. Also the ” Plantation Scots” who went to Ireland before the USA was founded to teach them how to farm properly, were simply Irish ( the Scoti) returning to where they came from.

  4. It’s all quite straightforward:

    The Scots (originally Irish, but by now Scotch) were at this time inhabiting Ireland, having driven the Irish (Picts) out of Scotland; while the Picts (originally Scots) were now Irish (living in brackets) and vice versa. It is essential to keep these distinctions clearly in mind (and verce visa).

    The Scots are the Irish invaders – modern Scotland is, in fact, Ireland’s colony.

    Suddenly, Scotland is more understandable…
