English term or phrase:feel hard done by
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. But their sufferings were at least real. The Scots have no good reason to feel especially hard done by. Their victimhood is an invention-like, it has to be said – much of the rest of what passes for history in Scotland, from the romantic myths about kilts and tartan to the fatuous film “Braveheart”.
"Feel especially hard done by" - "...у шотландцев нет достаточных оснований утверждать, что с ними жестоко обошлись"?
