15 Reasons Why Scotland And London Really Aren’t So Different

They may be miles apart in terms of, erhm, mileage. But Scotland and London aren’t really so different after all. Unnecessary and totally ridiculous (but immensely fun) pop-ups? Check. A native accent that’s impossible for outsiders to understand? Check. Habit of voting for under qualified and farcical politicians? Check! Looks like we may have a second place to feel at home in after all…
