Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day         Leslie Monk

“Nationalism”

 12 September 2014

Scottish Nationalism.

Apparently 50% of the Scots want to go it alone. This half would seem to feel that they are or have been  disenfranchised by successive UK governments in Westminster.

As someone who has never failed to vote but has never voted for the party that has become the government of this United Kingdom, I have reason to empathise.

Unlike most Scottish Nationalists I have never lived more than 2 miles from the river Thames.

The 50% of Scots of which I speak may or may not be "nationalists" in a "bad way" or otherwise be selfishly making pecuniary calculations of perceived advantage over me and other English taxpayers, but how embarrassing that our leaders of different parties should now today be so preoccupied and so united about opposing Scottish Nationalism, this very week when elsewhere in this world murderous civil wars continue to  flourish unabated.

Whatever the outcome of the Scottish referendum life will go on and I will continue to be ruled by politicians of whom I do not approve in this place.

And so will be the Scots in another place from where there would be no way back.

It is of course possible that more Scots live within 2 miles of the River Thames than live within 2 miles of Sean Connery.
