This promises to be a very educative discussion indeed for many a Scot as it will no doubt be for most of us, who may be strangers to those parts but observe with keen interest the events unfolding in ALBA! However, I need not be Scottish by ancestry to see that the Union's strength and power rides (Like a Sea Anemone) on the deep cited roots of SCOTTISH Culture and tradition which has made Great Britain acquire the respect it has. The Royal residences and The Crown as an institution is awash with the Kilt, rich music from the Bag pipes, TARTAN as a textile is a key part of Royal Regalia all symbols of Scottish Tradition and Culture and NOT English symbols if there be any! With due respect I beg to be enlightened here, what is the Culture of the English that the World can and should envy them for? Is it their legendary love for Tea and organized gossip shops? Is it their wonder-lust? Is it slices of bacon with baked sweetened beans sprinkled on it ,topped up with avian fertilisation abortive products (eggs) and a few slender sausages served as repast at breakfast? Is it the barbaric and notorious Fox Hunting on Horseback? Is it their insatiable appetite for empire building even if it costs them way too much in human blood? Is it their almost necrophiliac, devilish inclination and unblessed, unbalanced relations with America that have made most of us lose our respect for everything British? Gordon Brown today struggles to govern not because he is incompetent but I have this strong suspicion the English labour MPs could have been a little bit more supportive than they have been to his premiership.

I have a strong conviction that an Independent Scotland would not have gone to that evil war in IRAQ because Scots are a proud people who are independent thinkers and i see them charting their own path in world politics. What then is the tradition of the English? Perhaps to put it more crudely what has England contributed to The UNION? There has never been a more ideal time to pull out than this; Scotland has more to lose by remaining part of the Union than if they broke free!!!

We face almost identical struggles of marginalization in Barotseland.

To the memory of all those Brave Hearts that have and continue to struggle for NATIONHOOD.
