An open letter to the Scottish people on this Independence Referendum Day
Berrocscir has written an open letter to the people of Scotland which we agree with to such an extent that we have scrapped our own message and instead would like to echo his. So with a tip of the hat to Berrocscir, here is his open letter, which we concur with to the fullest.
The British peoples are intertwined by the centuries. Bound together by history, culture and by blood. We are an extended family and nothing, including what happens this Thursday, will change that.
Like all families, we haven't always got along. Sometimes family members need to spread their wings and grow, choose their own paths in life. You now have that opportunity.
The union was a cynical deal by both our countries' social elites of the day in order to pursue joint imperialist ambition. This had nothing to do with the great mass of the Scottish people and her cousins the English, Welsh, Ulster-Scot and Irish.
As an Englishman with a good dose of Ulster-Scot, I know that being British is about blood, not some cobbled together state. Just as the union was the first step on the road to empire, a 'Yes' vote will mean that empire begin to come to an end. A 'yes' vote will encourage the people of Wales, Cornwall, Ulster and England (and all their regions therein) to demand greater autonomy. It will kick-start a call for devolution that our masters will not be able to ignore. Help start a process whereby power begins to return to our localities by voting 'Yes'.
Of course, a 'Yes' vote will not mean a free Scotland in charge of her own destiny yet - the EU, which your political leaders embrace - will do for that! But a 'Yes' vote will symbolise the first stirrings of a nation reborn. A Scotland free from the UK will invigorate you further to take on Brussels, break free and wrestle power from Edinburgh to your regions and localities. That's when a devolved Scotland can really forge its own destiny. Think what a Transition Scotland could achieve.
A 'yes' vote will send shock waves around the world and inspire other nations, not least across Europe where national autonomy movements are growing. Take this historic opportunity and don't believe the fear mongers, talking their money talk. You have always been a radical people, you can build a new Scotland which won't be shackled to their globalist criteria, you won't starve in your new found autonomy - you can begin to live radically different lives to what our global masters want you as - ready made consumers. You can begin to make your beautiful country richer (in the real sense) greener, simpler, happier - and the first step is by voting yes. Rise against Westminster and then turn your energy on Brussels.
