  1. Scottish maybe nicer than Britons,
    but still weird looking ugly houses,
    lack of sunshine brrrr.

    Strange,
    being an expat of east european origin,
    living here in so sunny southern France, on med coast,
    cannot look for a long time for these northern people,
    drinkers, meat eaters, unaware of freemasonry, living almost without forest, in bloody cold and miserable island...haha

    Wasnt looking for any media, blogs, web news for two weeks and what i see here :
    Scottish white faces instead of reptilian conspir haha.

    Greetings, anngir !
