Baron Jackfield July 7, 2018 at 11:14 am But they’re right… Scottish nationalism doesn’t contain “traces of bigotry”… It contains bloody shedloads!! So Much For Subtlety July 7, 2018 at 11:55 am I think Scotland would make a fine country. It is about the right size. It has resources and talented people. It is just most of the talented people seem to have buggered off to Canada and London leaving the dregs behind. Which means there is no point to Scottish nationalism except an insane hatred of the English – mainly stirred by by a lack luster Hollywood film starring an Australian.

Wales and NI should be consulted as well as England (and Scotland), since the question is whether to break up the Union. It’s a shame that over 300 years of productive amity have come to this. The Jocks have a lot to offer the Sassenachs and vice versa (especially vice versa). The embittered 50%-ish are mad to want to break up with us. Jonathan July 7, 2018 at 5:48 pm Evidently, all nationalism is good except white nationalism and English nationalism. Because reasons….
