Huffing and Puffing

The United Kingdom, like all states, is an artificial construct. For some its symbol is the bulldog. The strange thing about the bulldog is that it would die out as a breed if left to its own devices. This is because their heads are so big that the vast majority of them have to be born by cesarean section.

The idea put forward by Harry Mulligan recently, that the Scottish people are being fed “ill-thought-out patriotism”, is exactly correct. However, the ill-thought-out patriotism that they are being fed is coming from those who would keep the UK as one state.

Look at Ireland for example – out of the frying pan and into the fire.
