I’m sure every other tourist area can vibe with this - I live up North now so I have to deal with Outlander fans.
It’s not your book. Fuck off if you can’t be arsed thinking beyond the pages and viewing everything through that lens.

Scotland on the left, Austria-Hungary on the right.

With its dashing kilt, Scotland promises to be one of the most popular uniforms of World War I. Nicknamed 'the Ladies from Hell' by the Germans, they made a strong impression with their glengarries, tartan hose, kilts and bagpiping. Unfortunately, it would soon prove to be cumbersome when kilts started freezing and cutting into soldiers' knees in winter, and many would opt for trousers, though keeping their distinctive headdress. Contrary to popular belief, many soldiers in Scottish regiments were not Scottish, but despatched for regimental needs.
Austria-Hungary, infamous for imposing the ultimatum that would start a chain of events that could never be undone, is nonetheless a strong rival to Scotland. Their blue uniforms were subject to many Austrian traditions, like keeping an oak leaf or fir twig's in one headdress to signal their frontline service. These would be soon replaced by unofficial metal badges showing their campaigns, quite reminescent of medieval pilgrim badges.

British prime minister, Rishi Sunak, after breaking historical precedent to veto 2 gender bills, one each from Scotland and Wales, has now said he is concerned after a report has said that most children do not immediately tell their parents when they are questioning their gender identity. Perhaps if he wants to know why he should look for a mirror, the answer will be staring him in the face.

So, it’s official. My local doctor’s surgery is ending its NHS contract.
25’000 people thrown out of nationalised healthcare just like that. No one’s been able to get an appointment for the last three months. No doctors can be found. They don’t get paid enough to live or work here.
We’re rural. We don’t have any other choices.
Fuck the Tories.
(Can’t say fuck the SNP, it’s a Tory controlled area up here so the SNP don’t like us)
