English term or phrase: Quebecker
Now an outsider has dared to join in. Digby Jones, head of the Confederation of British Industry, seeking to explain why Scotland’s economy is not doing too well, suggests that the Scots’ failure to welcome English investors is partly to blame. “Scots seem to have an enormous chip on their shoulder.”
He is right. But the odd thing is why they should have acquired it, or chosen to display it, so recently. Plenty of other peoples revel in the injustices done to them over the centuries: the Irish and Quebeckers have only recently emerged from aeons of resentment about their sufferings at the hands of others (i.e., the British), and the Serbs have yet to follow.
