Why the SNP are not a nationalist Party

The title of the SNP is 'The Scottish National Party'

If it were the 'Scottish Nationalist Party' it would be a very different beast.

It is up to us, the people who live here, to decide this very important issue.

I do not get  the concept that there is a case to be put to anyone living here that they would be better off staying with Westminster.

It is a bit, divide and conquer, to my mind. If you live here and care a little bit about here as opposed to there, well............

I am aware that there are people who would self identify as Pakistani, English, Italian, or heaven forefend Polish who will vote for independence.

 To those people, I raise my hat. They are not affeared of independence, they see it as a freedom from this sort of Britishness:


Which is a tad ironic?

You have rejected the 'ist' bit. It is, perhaps, more than important that the rest of us embrace you. For we want to be an inclusive, rather that enclusive politic. I find the history of our nation fascinating, but counter-productive.

For instance, Polish plasterers are a good thing


There are comparatively small stickers in windows in Pollockshields with 'Yes' on them. I would like to know where I can get one.
