Scottish separation

February 23 2014

Transcript of Roger Scruton, BBC Radio 4, A Point of View. Worth reading in full.

“Suppose then we English were finally allowed a say in the matter, which way would I vote? I have no doubt about it. I would vote for English independence, as a step towards strengthening the friendship between our countries. It was thanks to independence that the Americans were able at last to confess to their attachment to the old country, and to come to our aid in two world wars. Independence is what real friendship requires. And the same is true for those, like the Scots and the English, who live side by side.”

    The political scales, as Scruton points out, do not balance. The economic scales are more closely balanced.
