Thing is, I totally get what Alan Bissett is talking about with this blog. It’s great, it’s powerful, and being Scottish myself, I can completely identify with most of what he’s saying. But do we really need to take all the negative Scotland-England feelings and connotations associated with stereotyping and being made to feel inferior, to promote an independent Scotland and what is essentially a huge political decision? Is it really that personal? We’re deciding on what’s best for us as a country, and I really hoped we were getting over all this petty shit. He’s bringing it all back up again, and in my opinion this political separation could just make it even worse, instead of better. That’s just my opinion. What’s yours?
