Reader’s Comment of the Day: Scotland is walking away from the Union


In response to Nick Wood’s Campaign Commentary: Time for Farage to back Scottish independence?, bogbrush wrote:

It was a tragedy when the No vote won, I was harbouring faint hopes as the day approached that they’d go for it.

There is no long term alternative; Scotland now operates to a completely different culture from the rest of the UK and while they can carry on blaming the English for everything that will only deepen. Only by having the responsibility to run their own affairs can the cultures converge, and that can only happen with independence.

That said, it’s not the business of the English to say whether they should be independent. Now, it IS the business of the English to decide whether they want to be separate from Scotland; The Union should only exist if ALL parties want it; one veto and it should end even if the other parties want to remain connected.

Returning to the Scots, no group of people should be governed from afar against their will (and despite the referendum result, that does seem to be the feeling up there otherwise the SNP would be in retreat now); nobody should know that better than Nigel Farage.
