I just wrote about the insanity going on in the United States post election about people in different states wanting to break away from the United States.
The matter it reminded of was the potential vote for Scottish independence in 2014.
I thought of this with the problems in the European Union. Look how well Ireland and Greece have done in the European Union. Is it better for Scotland to be connected to Britain or the European Union. As a nation of five million people wouldn’t it be better for Scotland to have a voice through a larger entity? I thought of this from Michael Palin’s New Europe, when he toured the nations of the former Yugoslavia.
Then there is the comment, what is a nation other than a language and a flag?
