One real life James Bond won’t go back home until England gives it up! Find out about his struggle.
James Bond can do just about anything from taking down the largest terrorist organizations to talking up any hottie with a suave swagger.
It's a bit of a shame that one James Bond, Sean Connery, won't go back to his home country until they manage to gain back their independence. That seems like something James Bond should be able to pull off!
Sean Connery really knows how to hold a grudge.
Scotland started as an independent country, founded sometime in the Early Middle Ages around 843.
The English promptly started invasions and military aggression, justifying it with plenty of reasons, including some far out myths.
They eventually entered into a personal union with the kingdoms of England in 1707, thus the Kingdom of England became the Kingdom of Great Britain.
Sean Connery is from Scotland, but refuses to visit from his home in the Bahamas until Scottish independence is achieved.
He feels they are “within touching distance” of it and need just a little kick. To help, he has been one of their biggest supporters, providing donations to the Scottish National Party, aiding in their best effort to become an independent nation.
