History behind our stereotypes Ireland The Irish stereotype seems to have originated from a dislike of the English from the Irish This spurred both the Irish and the English to write plays and books with deformed or comical characters from Ireland or England. this has been happening since the 1920 Scotland
Originally the stereotype of the Scottish people is their anger, but its more anger for the English that is the strongest stereotype.
This has originated from the war with Scotland we endured during the Civil war 1637
Eventually Scotland gave in to our parliament and have been part of the United Kingdom for the past 200 years
Believable? Well these days its hard to believe a regional stereotype because of the diversity of our country However that doesn’t stop us from refering to them possibly every day. Some aspects of regional stereotypes are very true such as the Scottish hate for England and their wearing of kilts. And the stereotype that Liverpool is filled with CHAVs is more than true as the estimated level of ‘CHAV’s within Liverpool exceeds all other cities. And their crime level is one of the highest in the country. So in a way regional stereotypes are believable and true but not down to every detail.
