INDEPENDENCE

So Scotland lost their vote for independence – this time but why the fuss if Scotland finally achieves independence after… how many years? I don’t remember hearing that the “United” Kingdom came apart, faltered in its daily life, lost any of its confidence when another part of the United Kingdom sloughed off. I refer of course to the departure of Eire (Southern Ireland) some few years ago, so why should there be any catastrophic change if Scotland eventually gains its freedom.

And I expect that there will not be any world shattering change when we in Australia, finally achieve independence any more than when India and other countries “grew up” and discarded the mantle of the Empire but stayed within the Commonwealth.
