If Scotland was currently an independent nation there would be absolutely no desire whatsoever to join the UK. So given the treatment which our country has received under the governance of Westminster why should we consider for a moment remaining?
If Scotland and England were humans in a relationship where the former was lied to, ignored, overruled, robbed, abused & manipulated what advice would you offer? I’d suggest getting the hell out and going their own way. So if we wouldn’t recommend the relationship for one person why would we possibly consider it for 5.3 million of us!?
