SNP Sings Solo
Is Anybody For Scottish Independence?

  • That convinces me, the Reds oppose it. Got to do everything Mao says.

  • And to add to that, Hillary! and Obama. Two other reasons for Scottish independence. And, for the record, the Pope did not oppose Scottish independence. He just said to be careful, as in the Velvet Divorce of the Czech Republic and Slovakia. There is no reason to believe that the Czech/Slovac pattern will not hold with Scotland.

      He said no such thing: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-27837650. Specifically, he said, “Let’s think of the former Yugoslavia. Obviously, there are nations with cultures so different that couldn’t even be stuck together with glue. The Yugoslavian case is very clear, but I ask myself if it is so clear in other cases – Scotland, Padania, Catalunya.”

    Just one more example of Yglesias being on the wrong side of history.

      I think the mention of Yglesias was writ ironical.
