Groundskeeper Willie Stumps for Scottish Independence
Of course, Willie is the surprisingly buff, lovably gruff, appropriately cartoonishly Scottish character on Fox‘s impossibly long-running animated sitcom, The Simpsons.
Noting that recent polling shows the nation divided 50/50 on the matter, Willie attempts to maintain his diplomacy during the early portion of his address. He quickly makes it clear, however, that he favors independence. He, “Scotland’s prodigal son,” also throws his hat in the ring to potentially run the newly independent Scotland, offering “Willie won’t back down to world leaders, because I haven’t a clue who they are, and I’m not willing to learn!”
