Scottish independence: Decapitate Britain, and we kill off the greatest political union ever – Telegraph

The Scots are on the verge of an act of self-mutilation that will trash our global identity

Right: it’s time to speak for Britain. If these polls are right, then we are on the verge of an utter catastrophe for this country. In just 10 days’ time we could all be walking around like zombies – on both sides of the Scottish border.

I don’t just mean that we will be in a state of shock, though that will obviously be true: most people (especially the Scots) have yet to think through the horrific financial and constitutional implications of an English-Scottish divorce.

I mean that we will be zombies, walking dead, because a fundamental part of our identity will have been killed. We will all have lost a way of thinking about ourselves, a way of explaining ourselves to the world. We are on the verge of trashing our global name and brand in an act of self-mutilation that will leave our international rivals stunned, gleeful and discreetly scornful.

  1. With the greatest amount of respect, why do we let fear drive us.
    Take pride, every single Scotsman has the strength, skill, to make this transition. This change is positive. We have to think beyond our own door step. Who we are can not change over night or by a single vote. By voting yes, only changes the path. A path that can be directed and steered by Scotland’s own people.
