Scotland the Brave - really?

A few weeks back I posted this about Scotland

Tom Paine at The Last Ditch outlined this little gem from the Times. Only 163,000 Scots made a net contribution to the Treasury

This of course comes as no surprise. Most entrepreneurial Scots, and indeed English, may have left in previous brain-drains. You'll find plenty of McTavishes and McClouds doing very nicely thank you in California, Australia and other parts of the English speaking world.

Are the Scots lazy as the article suggests?

I don't think so.

I have nothing to add. Just wanted to leave a comment. It is 30 degrees and sunny and this Scot is contented with South Australia today. Thank you.
