I'm still baffled how the government got away with allowing some 4 odd million people to decide the future of Great Britain, while the other 56 odd million people were just bystanders.
But foreign nationals get a vote, simply because they have lived in Scotland for a couple of years, or whatever it is.
(See blog, Scottish referendum 15/9/14).
Anyway, those odd (and disturbing) facts aside, if the Scots do decide to go it alone I think they will soon realize what many of us already know.
Just as England/Westminster is dominated by corporations and business, lobbying and bribing; just as wealthy individuals look after their own interests; just as some socialists fight for some hint of social justice; just as some want to privatize profit and some want to nationalize; just as some want to cut back and some want to tax and spend; they will realize that Scotland is no different.
These tensions and struggles go on in every society and have done since the day dot.
Scotland is just a microcosm of a bigger platform, i.e. Earth, where this is ongoing. In individual countries and between countries.
The same old arguments and power struggles will continue in Scottish politics, as they do now and nothing will change.
Still, seeing as Scotland won't be in N.A.T.O., will not have nuclear weapons and only have a tiny army, we could always give it a few years and then invade them.
We could take them under British colonial rule and start again.
Just kidding die-hards, don't go issuing fatwahs on Twatter and Farcebook.
