Random thought on UK Pavilion

Getting ready for work this morning when I wondered what would happen to the UK pavilion if Scotland got independence? Then I remembered that the UK pavilion only really represents England rather than Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. So all they need to do is remove the Scottish merchandise from the shops.

Using a certain word brings out a special kind of cray-cray

That's...pretty random.

I don't think it will be a pivotal point in the independence debate. I can't believe that the referendum is not until September the media has been going on about it here for months.

And they will have to send the Scottish CM's home, and remove the Scotch egg from the menu LOL. If they want to have a pavilion it would have to negotiate it and pay for it themselves, but that is a whole different discussion.

I would imagine that the changes they will be required to make at Disney World will not be a major discussion point in the politics right now.

I believe that the only government that paid for the pavilion was Morocco. Now if the Yes campaign were to scrap/reduce taxes on air fares that might be more likely to win votes. My point is that the UK pavilion doesn't really represent Scotland or the other countries in UK (or even the north of England for that matter!). Not that I'm arguing for a separate Scotland pavilion - a Disney version of Scotland could be quite twee!
