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. By Simon Proctor.
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.
