The greatest thing that can happen to the United Kingdom is its dissolution. The smaller each governmental area, the less the power of each government can be flexed, and the more places we can all easily escape to if our own particular government becomes too overbearing. What we really need here in the UK is the German situation of half a millenia ago, with six hundred or more independent cities, bishoprics, and polities - the more anarchic the better - but I'll settle for a free Scotland first, followed by a free Wales, and then a free Ulster!*
So it is with great expectation that we witness the gathering breakup of the British Union, and the fears of the Westminster politicians at the loss of their power. And it is with even greater pleasure that we wish the Great Scottish People their freedom back, stolen from them in 1707 by a rotten railroaded deal set up by a corrupt Scottish government elite. (Oh, and if all the Scottish MPs at Westminster, including Badger Darling and Toad Brown, should happen to find their blood-sucking beaks pulled from the back of their English host to find no such happy home awaiting them in a free Scotland, don't expect to find too many tears drenching this particular diarist's writing desk, except perhaps ones of joy!)
So Alex Salmond, leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP), consider yourself an AngloAustrian hero, for your increasingly successful work on the secession of Scotland. Go Alex, go!
* Or a free Ireland - it's none of my business what other people choose to do with their lives, so long as they don't encroach on mine. Though ideally, I would prefer the current Irish republic to break up too, to end the life of its own appalling nanny-state government. Indeed, one day I pray for an independent Ulidia, Oriel, Southern Ui Neill, Northern Ui Neill, Leinster, Munster, Connaught, and Breifne, along with a whole host of totally independent city states such as Dubh Linn, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, and Limerick - in fact the exact situation before the Normans got to Ireland and tried to enslave it, after they first fragged England in 1066. Imagine how magnificent such a free Ireland would be - a whole host of Hong Kongs, Singapores, and Monacos, vying for the title of best place in the world to live. Magnificent.
