Politically corrected song Flower of Scotland

Whitehall in London England today released a politically correct and

Edited version of the popular Scottish Nationalist song

The Flower of Scotland by Roy Williamson of the folk group the Corries from 1967.


It was suggested that it should be adopted north of the border in Scotland to help suppress separatist tendencies and to keep the idea of English sovereignty uppermost in the Scottish psyche ….


FLOWER OF SCOTLAND …. English edit.


Oh flower of somewhere to the very north of England

When shall we perceive

Your recurring similitude

That did incur mortality for

 One’s miniscule valley and dale


And did prove slightly troublesome to

Glorious Edwards army

And chastised him homewards

To reminisce once more ….



This verse now replaces:


O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edward’s army,
And sent him homeward
To think again.
