A scene in a hospital. A man is a patient on a bed, and is reading a newspaper. The headline he is reading says:
“WHINGE, Whinge, whinge…” and underneath is a picture of Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP leader.
A nurse approaches the bed.
Nurse [with Scottish accent]: “Morning George. Are you any better, today?”
The patient, after looking from his newspaper up to the nurse, says, with a heavy English accent:
Patient: “What is it with the Jocks, eh? Always moaning. Can’t they do something useful for a change?”
The nurse, who flicks a syringe needle and pushes the patient over in anticipation of jagging it into his buttocks, says:
Nurse: “Like inventing the hypodermic syringe perhaps, or discovering something which has saved millions of lives and will probably also save your life George, such as penicillin?”
Camera pans to patient’s face, as he grimaces as the needle is inserted, just off camera. Camera back to nurse, who as she rubs the injection area with cotton wool, leans over to the patient and says, whilst giving a nod towards the newspaper:
Nurse: “By the way, the SNP only speaks for the SNP, oor minority government party, ye ken. Maist o’ us Scots dinnae even want anither Scottish Referendum”
PS: It is very amusing to see that pro-SNP tweeters, who seem to have a short attention span and who have probably only read the subject line, are retweeting this post to their followers. And also reassuring, in a way, to see from the WordPress Referrer stats that so few of their Followers are actually clicking through from those tweets to the post. A pity, though, that those Followers won’t learn something.
