We asked people who Don’t Know how to vote next year to share our concerns in 500 words. All this week we’ll be publishing their entries.
So here’s the thing, I love Scotland. I love the people, the culture, the countryside and the cities. I came here 20 years ago this year to study and decided to stay. And I’m firmly behind the idea of Scotland cutting ties with the insanity that is London.
But, I am that most maligned of nationalities, an Englishman from the Essex no less. And frankly the rhetoric scares me, the concept of nationalism angers me and I can’t see how I can vote for it.
The thing is there is a vein of hatred woven into the spirit of Scotland that scares me and I am worried that the next year is only going to make it worse.
