Scotland accepts FOUR times as many Ukrainian refugees

Note: Thanks to Jim for alerting me to this.

Based on the above UK Government data, there have been 40 343 applications by Ukrainian refugees to live in Scotland and 30 668 visas have been issued.

All things being equal, with 10 times the population, you might expect there to have been 400 000 applications and 300 000 visas issued to live in England but there were only 86 000 and 77 000 respectively.

Scotland has been, at least, four times as welcoming.

The extent to which we are different has been discussed here before. Some of them:


Scotland IS a different place as its universities offer guaranteed places to care leavers

Abuse of women and the disabled far higher in England than in Scotland

Less homicide, less knife crime, less domestic violence, safer cities and now much lower alcohol problems: should Scotland’s old stereotypes be sent south?

Racial hate crimes increase by 33% in England & Wales while falling by 10% in Scotland: Who says we’re not different?

Scottish Muslim students far less likely to report abuse or crime?

Terror de-radicalisation referral rate in Scotland less than one third per capita of that in England

Only in Scotland! ‘A review of small country’s approaches to public policy reform in response to economic, demographic and other pressures found that only in Scotland could this ‘golden thread’ be so clearly discerned’

Scientific evidence that Scots tend to be different from the other groups in rUK?

Who said Scots were not more left-wing than those in the rest of the UK?

With 1 in 4 living wage employers already in Scotland, the Scottish Government aims to make this a ‘Living Wage Nation’

8% of the UK population and 28% of living wage employers. More evidence that we are different enough to want to run the whole show?

80 000 lowest paid workers in NHS England still on poverty wages as NHS Scotland follows Scottish Government policy to pay a living wage to all public-sector employees

Scottish care workers to receive Living Wage for ‘sleepover’ hours while English care workers receive only the National Minimum Wage.

Different Scotland in the UN report on ‘Workhouse Britain’

Scottish values making oil and gas firms a tad different too?

Are Scotland’s employers also different – more willing to pay a decent wage?

With 1 in 4 living wage employers already in Scotland, the Scottish Government aims to make this a ‘Living Wage Nation’

8% of the UK population and 28% of living wage employers. More evidence that we are different enough to want to run the whole show?

Another difference as UK small and medium-sized business people prefer Boris while Scots prefer…

Another difference between Scotland and rUK?

NHS England’s new motto: Who is laike us? Dem few and they err awl daid!

Scottish Government support for small businesses superior to that in non-Scottish parts of UK

  1. ‘Anglo-Brits ‘n’ mejah, hide yer square heids in shame,
    As Scots welcome Ukranian’s intae their hame.
    Nae tent city, sae sh!tty, but a luxury cruise boat.
    I wad be loath, tae point fingers or gloat,
    But ye never get sea-sick in a harbour, afloat.
    Rid, Blue’n’Yeller Tories, comprehend like a goat.
    If youse wiz’ a ba’ I doubt ye’z wid stoat’!

  2. It is worth reminding ourselves these are UK government figures – Straight from the horse’s arse, the very one who visited Zelensky at the merest hint of bad press at home and came back farting about a special relationship, as verified by the ex-coo man from Moray known affectionately as Moray Mince…

  3. Alistair Moffat, in his book “The Scots – A Genetic Journey”, mentions Ukraine, in around 2000 BC, as a possible source of the early people of Scotland.
