...or at least I am unless there is some radical revelation about the future of an independent Scotland that puts me off the idea. Right now I can't see how we could possibly be significantly worse off in the long term. Alex Salmond says his dream is of a "Nordic" Scotland, which would suit me fine. A high tax / high service social democracy up here while England degenerates into an isolationist, Europhobic neoconservative hell-hole? Bring it on.
Of course what I'd really like is a Republican socialist Scotland, but provided we don't have to suffer Charles III for very long I can probably thole the continuation of the monarchy. And where I'm blogging right now (Ballater in Aberdeenshire) I doubt there would be much enthusiasm for a republic: the royal family are a local fixture (the Queen's holiday home at Balmoral is about eight miles up the road, Charles has a house just outside the village, and every other shop has a big "By Appointment" badge outside (signifying preferred royal supplier status).
Maybe we should really set the cat among the pigeons and restore the Stuart monarchy in Scotland. They were, after all, perfectly good kings and queens of Scotland before James VI was persuaded to take the English throne as well, after which it all went tits up as the English tail wagged the Scottish lion.
Meanwhile, back at the republic....I hadn't heard this song for a very long time until I found it a few minutes ago. SNP campaign songs from the 1960s are great fun.
