I don't think racist is the word you're looking for...

Edit: Why is there is a kiss at the end of that? Who are you kissing, everyone on this thread? WHERE IS THE LOGIC?

As an English person that has lived in Scotland for 4 years I can say that no, Scottish people don't hate the English! There's a bit of banter but nothing serious.

I get a lot of banter from the Scottish people, mind you it's no different to me giving one of my flatmates banter for being from Liverpool, and him giving me banter for being "posh".

Plus, even if they do hate us, I still shall succeed in finding myself a man in a kilt =D Out of the 10 guys I've got with since coming to uni 7 guys have definitely been scottish, 1 guy was english, 1 was spanish and 1 i really have no idea about :L

Not at all! I agree there is some banter between Scottish and English people but I'm Scottish and actually chose to move down to England to study. Just because there's a border between us doesn't change the fact that we're all part of Britain, so I don't see why there should be any bad feelings.

Half of my family is Scottish, and I would say no. You do get the banter, but that's it. My uncle did get pissed off when some English cashier person rejected Scottish money though.

The whole Scottish people love everyone/everything Scottish is bull too, because my mum hates labour, Gillian (from I'm a celeb), bagpipes, haggis, black pudding, deep fried mars bars, and Scottish weather.

She wouldn't let be labeled as English though.

Yep.
I mean I don't, and I think it's defo more of a North thing, but most people up here really hate English people for some reason. I was brought up by my dad telling me English people are EVIL.

I quite like people from England though

Well I'm English and my boyfriend's Scottish, and I'd say we get along quite well :P of course there's the friendly banter, but I haven't yet met anyone from Scotland who has a serious problem with the English.

For some reason, a large majority of the English people that move to Scotland tend to be dicks.

To answer your question OP, I personally have nothing against the English 'race'.

You heard it form a comedian... hence tis a joke.


But yeah, we just lol around pretending we don't like them. Like all races, they have their good and bad eggs. We just like to get all patriotic and Braveheartesque in moments of drunken stupor. There is defo rivalry but it's not racism. Not the sort I've seen anyway.
