Rio medal haul shows why Scot­land should stick to­gether with Eng­land

7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

Firstly I would like to con­grat­u­late all Olympians that par­tic­i­pated in the Rio games, well done to all. Hav­ing a quick look at the medal ta­ble I feel that the medal haul by GB was very im­pres­sive con­sid­er­ing the size and pop­u­la­tion of the Bri­tish isles. One ar­ti­cle I stum­bled across gave a break­down of where the medal win­ners came from, Eng­land ‘bagged’ 103 medals whereas Scot­land only man­aged a pal­try 16. If Scot­land had par­tic­i­pated as an in­de­pen­dent coun­try it would have ranked 15th and placed be­tween Spain and Kenya. Statis­tics don’t lie and this demon­strates that an in­de­pen­dent Scot­land would be very vul­ner­a­ble and open to be pushed around like a small child in the play­ground. The results clearly demon­strate that Scot­land should stay aligned with their ‘big brother’ as Eng­land of­fers pro­tec­tion, loy­alty and strength al­ways. Englaisie Andy UAE
