      Where is this country situated?

    2. Geoff Huijer says:

      Isn’t that Brian of Britian?

    3. Marcia says:

      He visited a dyslexic tattooist. I expect he doesn’t even know.

    4. Tris says:

      His name, clearly, is Ian, and he’s a Brit. Bless him.

    5. Baheid says:

      Someone’s told the policewoman, she’s having a wee giggle 🙂

    6. alasdair says:

      Looks like the WPC behind him is pissing herself laughing too . . .

    7. Bob Howie says:

      Damn, we cant get independence as they’ll have to get that tattoo altered………….oh wait a minute….. I have a grinder in my tool kit, mind you

    8. Rev. Stuart Campbell says:

      “His name, clearly, is Ian, and he’s a Brit. Bless him.”

      Of COURSE! [slaps head]


    9. ianbrotherhood says:

      Wonder if he queried whatever the tatooist charged for the blue ink? Mind you, I reckon we have some even more impressive examples in our very own SDL – Attenborough should consider a one-off special on these creatures.
      What a belter. My brother manages a pub very close to where today’s demo was being held, and asked the boss, couple of weeks ago, if they could just shut early. (He knows what kind of trouble these folk can cause from past experience down there.) The request was denied. Have forwarded him the image above, still waiting to hear if there was any bother…

    10. rabb says:

      Picture the scene at FMQ’s on Thursday, it’s Willie Rennie’s turn to verbally abuse the FM.
      “Will the first minister agree that seperation will require negotiating terms with tattoo artists to have 140,000 British nationalist tattoos altered at a cost of billions to the Scottish tax payer?”

    11. Castle Rock says:

      Give that man a UKOK T-shirt!

    12. ianbrotherhood says:

      You’ve heard about the dyslexic devil-worshipper?
      He sold his soul to Santa.

    13. ronald alexander mcdonald says:

      Do you think he’s been on University Challenge? Reading The Beano.

    14. Yesitis says:

      I wonder if he really, really enjoys the music of Kylie Minogue?

    15. mrbfaethedee says:

      Anyone else seen this video anim of wealth inequality in the USA?

      I can’t imagine it can be as bad, but I’d love to see one for the UK.
      Depressing stuff.

    16. Richie says:

      To be fair on him, he probably didn’t write it himself. Unless he wrote it on a piece of paper and handed it to a non-English speaking tattooist while he was abroa… 

      Reminds me of this.

    17. Robert Kerr says:

      Please do not mock the afflicted.

    18. Jiggsbro says:

      The EDL are not the afflicted, they’re the affliction.

    19. Rod Mac says:

      When you read some of the threads in Scotsman ,Telegraph ,Mail etc it comes as no great surprise really.
      That is the face of British unionism we should have on every poster in Scotland

    20. pa_broon74 says:

      Eh, I think you’re all wrong about this, clearly (to me at least) he’s not talking about Britain as a proper name, he’s talking about Britain as an adjective. Modern usage is ‘British’, but an ancient English tradition is to refer to oneself as ‘Britian’, (the ‘t’ is soft.)
      Here is an innocent gentleman going about his lawful business and you’ve all just judged him on his appearance.
      Shame on you all. 😉
      PS: They’ve got Ian Smart on the sunday politics with the some libdem blogger, no yes rep in attendance. Meh.

    21. muttley79 says:

      BBC Scotland are becoming more and more surreal in their reporting of the independence referendum.  Why do they have Smart on after all his ranting and denials?  Also, I see John Curtice is quoted in the Sunday Herald saying that the SNP’s claims over UKIP are “rubbish.”  Can you get anyone more transparently unionist than Curtice in the media?

      Seriously, why is there no comment from the Yes campaign when the media either under-represent the pro-independence side, or do not include them in discussions at all?!  BBC Scotland in particular seem to be doing an impersonation of Pravada.

    22. chicmac says:

      I think the wpc is laughing because on the other side of his neck a tattoo reads “VOLE AND HEAT”.

    23. Iain says:

      @ pa_broon74
      I see on Sunday Politics BBC Scotland again repeated their lie by omission about the Latvian European minster saying Scotland would have to reapply for EU membership as a new state, with the rest of his points consigned to oblivion. They really have reached tabloidesque levels of shamelessness.

    24. pa_broon74 says:

      In their rubbish VT before, they said nationalists lost to the no vote in 1979 too.

    25. Luigi says:

      In 2015, this tatoo will be replaced by a flag of St George, with a bold “Englund” printed below.

    26. Chic McGregor says:

      @ Luigi “Engerlund” more likely, although “Angerland” would be more apposite.

    27. jon says:

      I just saw Jim Murphy slagging off the SNP on the BBC News 24 Channel about the withdrawal of British army troops from Germany.
