I wrote this the day after the EU election results were announced. If you look at the map of the UK showing the breakdown of results across the regions and countries, it really shows such a stark contrast in opinion where Scotland and England are concerned. The contrast has spelled out how we are basically an independent nation already. We are independent in outlook, socially and politically. It’s now just about taking the last inevitable step. I won’t underplay the fact that the fight for independence will not be easy, but I will argue the case that it’s ours to lose, and the power to win this struggle rests entirely in our hands.
