This scene's exploration of nationhood remains pertinent today following the failure of the Yes campaign in last year's Scottish Independence referendum. It's a critique of English colonialism, but it's also damning of the frailty of Scottish nationalism that they would allow themselves (and now actively choose) to be ruled by such "wankers".
Amph’d up job interview
