Who can remember the Trainspotting ‘It’s sh*te being Scottish’ speech?
An Edinburgh University lecturer has been reported to the police for quoting Trainspotting - and he was shocked.
So, who can remember the full “It’s sh*te being Scottish” rant by Ewan McGregor’s character Mark Renton in the film?
For those of you who cannot, here it is:
“It’s SH*TE being Scottish!
We’re the lowest of the low.
The scum of the f**king Earth!
The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever sh*t into civilization.
Some hate the English. I don’t. They’re just w**kers.
We, on the other hand, are COLONISED by w**kers. Can’t even find a decent culture to be colonised BY!
We’re ruled by effete a***holes.
It’s a SH*TE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won’t make any f**king difference.”
