I forgot to talk, the other day, about Scotland having a referendum on independence. And I must admit, despite the vast practical problems it would cause, I was a bit surprised at the refusal.
Isn't it better to solve your own problems, rather than let someone else solve yours?
I guess that's a bit facile, as many Scots have been in important positions in the UK government (hmm... would make the marriage of the Queen of England and the Duke of Edinborough a bit awkward, now that I think about it), but it still seems fundamentally true.
I guess it means that the Scottish really are conquered, now. Took an awfully long time.
Color me disappointed, I guess.
