England, Do Not Be Afraid

newleftproject.org — Whilst researching for my new e-book, 42 reasons to support Scottish independence , I spent some time looking at historic election results. The answer to my question was three: Since the 1832 Reform Act, I can only find three Prime Ministers who depended on Scottish MPs: Asquith, Wilson and Callaghan.

Daniel Morgan - Resource Page

jackofkent.com — (Last updated 3 July 2014) Background Daniel Morgan was murdered in 1987. Five successive police investigations failed to result in any successful prosecution. There is wide concern that the investigations were compromised by police corruption. There is also an allegation that the News of the World (a client of one of the suspects) was involved at one point in the surveillance of an investigating officer.

The battle all Scots know about that changed English history

theconversation.com — The battle of Bannockburn, fought over two days in June 1314, saw King Robert I of Scotland (Robert Bruce) obliterate a substantially larger army led by King Edward II of England. This public, personal and political humiliation for "Proud Edward", sent homeward to think again, is remembered with each rendition of "Flower of Scotland", and the 700-year anniversary of the encounter this week has given it even greater significance.

@Occams_Blazer 2/2 And it is clear that story works backwards from the punchline. So: unsourced, not plausible, contrived. Therefore, false.
