    I don't understand the relationship between Scotland and England. England conquered Scotland? That can't be true because the Scots don't seem to be the type of people who take well to being conquered. They have separate parliaments, but Scotland does not have a prime minister? My guess would be that England has used its financial dominance to keep Scotland from declaring full independence, and the Scots don't mind because they see themselves as equal partners in the country.
