We Galicians are aware of the fact that Scotland may become independent in 2014 and that this issue is worrying you. You needn't think of a solution to this challenge because we have found an innovative proposal that you won't be able to refuse:

We propose you to accept Galiza as an integral part of the United Kingdom.

This may come as a surprise to you but Galiza is also a Celtic nation in the northwest of Spain. With us on board you won't miss the following: 

  • Scottish pipes: we have our own.
  • Celtic of Glasgow: we have Celta Vigo
  • An amazing landscape, we have that too
  • Scottish clans, we have plenty of them (caciques are included)
  • Our people like their drinks as Scots do
  • We have a vibrant cultural and music scene
  • In Galiza it also rains a lot
  • We have a strong identity like Scottish people do.
  • We are also an Atlantic country
  • Flags of both countries have similar colours
  • We also have some stingy people.
  • Santiago of Compostela is our Edinburgh

With Galicians as part of the UK, you will gain the following:

  • Hard-working people
  • Galician people accent (in English) is easier to understand than the Scottish accent
  • If you leave us alone, we won't bother you
  • Lovely food and drinks (e.g. cozido instead of haggies, licor cafe instead of whisky, etc.)
  • We speak the most spoken Roman languages of the world: Portuguese (Galician) and Spanish (Galician). We are able to communicate with both Brazil and Mexico using our two languages.
  • Milder weather than in Scotland
  • We share a similar sense of humour with British people (“retranca” is the Galician irony)
  • British economy will improve with our fishing industry, textile (e.g. Zara), cultural tourism (The Way of St James), best beach of the world (Praia de Rodas, Ilhas Cies ,Vigo).
  • Our seafood is worldwide famous (mussels, oysters, lobsters, etc.)

We look forward to hearing from you

Kind Regards
