Scottish independence: a brave new world | Politics | The Guardian: Scottish nationalists aren’t the separatists of old, or in any sense “little Scotlanders”. But the Westminster-focused class, on left and right, are “little Britishers” and “little Englanders”, still hung up on defending the archaic rights of a political system that seems stuck in a timewarp.
And what of Cornwall, Wales and Man? Do we want to carry on as pointless peripheries or take up the challenge of creating a new democracy in these isles and across Europe?
