The Scottish National Party has released an official statement denying that their desire for Scottish independence is motivated by ‘a hatred of the English’ explaining that ‘it’s the Welsh we can’t stand’. 
 
The statement, which was published on the SNP website, was produced in response to accusations that the SNP are motivated by ‘anti-English prejudice’. It claimed that on the contrary the SNP ‘really love the English – they’re great’ before adding that their desire for independence was instead motivated by a ‘strong dislike of the Welsh’. 
 
The statement added that the Scottish people are ‘very happy to share a country with the English’, but ‘can’t put up with being in the same union as Wales for any longer’. 
 
Former SNP leader Alex Salmond backed the statement, and added that it ‘universally represents the views of SNP members and the Scottish people’. He explained that he found the English ‘very endearing’, especially when they ‘try to explain cricket or make jokes about kilts’. However he noted that he’d had ‘quite enough of the Welsh’ and their ‘endless bloody singing’, adding that he wished they would stop ‘banging on about rugby as if it actually matters’.
