So, what about England?

So, what about England? From Jim Gallagher posting in the Scotsman. Hat-tip CEP.

That comma after 'so' is well placed. So, "WHAT about the English? The independence referendum will be decided in Scotland – by the people living here.

The rest of Britain will have no say in the matter. Not all countries would take such an relaxed attitude. Spain regards the unity of the state as a constitutional principle, and so a Catalan referendum is constitutionally forbidden. In Britain just under a century ago, there were plenty of voices for resisting Irish independence by force. Wiser heads prevailed."...

It's a good article and worth a read, after all: "What the English think matters, and their interests are important – to us as well as them."
