  1. I must say, I’m less worried by your age group, in which most of those I know are actually pro indy, than my age group (60-69), who seem, as with Brexit, to hold some kind of nostalgic, romanticised view of both the UK and its place in the world.

  2. You mirror my thoughts exactly only you can express them more eloquently than I ever could. I’m 85 and can’t wait for Independence to begin and all changes.

  3. Thank you. I have shared on twitter & blogs…short and to the point, excellent.

    One thing, my neighbours, mostly Scottish, older retired folks, mostly very well off, have grown up offspring who have all lived in England for a long time and so, they are all British unionists. For them, Scotland is an appendage to England not a country. The fact their young folk felt they needed to leave Scotland seems to not register in their minds, nor to ask why.

    When I first came to live in Edinburgh 30+ years ago, the hotel by Waverley station was called the ‘North British’. It didn’t occur to me how that was so symbolic of the British Nationalists’ colonisation of Scotland. To even rename a country, as the English renamed Scotland, ‘North Britain’ for some time, has surely got to be the most abusive and offensive act by one country, onto another. It’s been the world over though, but it’s now time for Scotland to embrace Scotland, the country, the identity, culture and self determination which every country deserves and should have in the 21st century.

    It’s either backwards, or forwards, no standing still, I know which I choose for my adopted country.
