So, Theresa is off to see The Donald next week, and we're told both are keen to recreate the Reagan-Thatcher vibe. I imagine their relationship will be more akin to that of "Dubya" Bush and Blair, or master and servant. Is it significant, that both the President and the Prime Minister have a desire for their countries to recapture bygone glory-days that never really were?
The British Government does not, and has never respected Scotland. This becomes more apparent by the day. As such, Scotland should have some self-respect, and walk away.
Saving the Union is not what Scotland needs right now. As things stand, and the way things are going, it is the Union that Scotland needs saving from.
I note that QE2 was well enough to attend church today, making her first public appearance in a month. It reminded me that I don't recall seeing or hearing anything of Jeremy Corbyn, in at least as long.
There are some who will never see the light, and we shouldn't waste our time engaging with them. Let's concentrate our efforts on those that can be persuaded, who will listen to reason.
The First Minister of Scotland has said that her government is willing to compromise, to cooperate, to seek consensus, knowing full well that the British Prime Minister and her government seek to control, for Scotland to conform, be compliant.
So-called Scottish Labour say 2017 will be the year that they "save" the Union all over again. As things stand, they'll be lucky to save themselves: May 4th isn't looking good for them.
If it had been Northern Ireland holding a referendum in 2014, it is unlikely that the British Establishment would have made much of an effort to persuade them to stay, far less throw everything and the kitchen sink at it, as they did with Scotland. Why is that, I wonder, what does it tell us?
