Scotland and the EU reblogged from Notes from North Britain

Having lived for more than a third of my life outside the UK (and the EU for that matter) and always knowing that I am British, a citizen of the United Kingdom & a subject of HM QEII no matter where I live or what other nationality I may gain by “naturalisation”, this whole situation seems like a complete farce.  Mind you, I returned to the UK after the weirdness of devolution* & I’m still wondering where the adults were when that was being thought out. We’re either ONE country with ONE government, or we’re not. And if we’re not, then half-hearted measures do nothing but piss everyone off and lead to, as we have seen, internal racism… Racism! Against fellow Britons? Really? This is who we are in the 21st century?


Anyway, that’s nothing to do, really, with the post I am linking to – apart from having the Scottish Independence Referendum in common.


“Would an independent Scotland remain in the EU? The SNP have a terrible record of making-it-up-as-they-go-along on this question. Even now they are still at it.”

*It’s like letting your 18 year old set up their own little apartment/annex in the garage/basement so they can have their independence but still have Mum & Dad around to deal with the really important stuff (and the cooking & cleaning, of course). Now they want to put a new door in or change the locks. Oh, and claim the equity in the property as an asset 😉
