First, I really don’t understand how Scotland could become better off by leaving Great Britain. I saw clips of a recent speech by Alex Salmond in which he was summing up his case for Scottish independence, and it all appeared based on emotion and nostalgia rather than practical considerations. I confess that I, too, prefer Robert Burns to William Wordsworth, but I don’t see how that kind of preference should affect important political and economic decisions.

As for Brexit, it’s easy to see why some Brits are seeing EU membership as a pair of lead boots. But it sure sounds like David Cameron’s approach to the problem is very practical. On one hand, he’s telling Europe that Britain may have to leave the EU if they can’t fix the Britain-Europe relationship. On the other hand, he’s telling the extreme anti-Europe group that this is the era of Elizabeth II, not Elizabeth I, and there is certain advantage to being a member of a larger polity, even if the status quo is not workable over the long term.

The real question is how the Scottish National Party can be both anti-UK and pro-EU. One of the long-term objectives of the European project seems to be to create a European identity that really doesn’t seem likely to appeal to Scottish nationalists.

Only three times have Scottish in the past have MPs made any difference in the outcome of a British General Election.

Other than that your reference to Scoxit and Brexit are silly, your basic premise is deeply, deeply flawed. And for that matter if the people of Scotland want to withdraw from the UK, it is their right and their business. The same must be said about the UK withdrawing from the EU and proposing that Scotland should prevent EWNI from expressing their democratic will is appalling.
