Longshanks couldn’t beat the Bruce, but the Nanny State has managed it:

Scots celebrating the anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, when   the forces of Robert the Bruce defeated the army of Edward II in the first   war of Scottish independence, have been told by council officials not to   carry replica weapons. The decision follows an alleged incident at last   year’s rally in which a car on the route was said to have been hit by a   shield and a Union flag was burnt.

I suppose the next step will be a demand by the council that the reenactors instead strew rose petals and engage in a giant group hug.  How does one say “cumbaya” in Gaelic?
