  •  He never kicked Edward I out of Scotland (3+ / 0-)

    He kicked Edward's idiot gay son, Edward II, out. (Edward II, by the way, was later deposed by his wife and her French lover, who killed him by reportedly shoving a hot poker up his rectum.)

    Edward I was nowhere near as bad as Braveheart depicted him. (Neither was Edward II; he actually was a strong handsome guy despite his weak rule). He was a very effective ruler and a brilliant millitary commander. He could be harsh, true, but he never instigated that "first night" stuff. That was all in Gibson's deranged head.
