I’ve been following the SNP press releases and barely a day goes by without a blast against the Westminster system or one of its latest policy emanations. And there’s nothing wrong with that – the SNP are doing no more than their job. But it’s eventually provoked a visceral English response in me. The nearest I can get to articulating it is this : “just leave our chaps alone to sort ourselves out in our own time!”
Of course, the flip side of this is that the English should leave the Scots alone to sort out their constitutional arrangements without interference. But so far, the evidence suggests that plenty of Westminster politicians will continue to weigh in to the referendum debate right up to the day itself. So, I can’t complain really. Maybe I’ll take an alka seltzer.
