As the Scots go to the polling stations today to make the most important UK constitutional decision for centuries, I shall stay right out of the frenzy.
However, i'm not sure if I came up with the following idea myself or am plagiarising it unintentionally, but it seems to me, that in fact, we should just insist on independence for Westminster.
Why on earth don't we just cut them adrift to govern no-one but themselves? It's what we all seem to want after all. Scotland insists they have nothing against the English, Welsh and Irish, but everyone agrees that governance from Westminster is bad for them. Scotland, Wales, the North, Cornwall - even the Isle of Wight.
Westminster appears to be able to perform the impressive trick of being unable to govern effectively or fairly for anyone at all. Except perhaps the metropolitan elite of Chelsea or Kensington.
Can we not just leave them to it, devolve greed, incompetence and feudal servitude to them, so that the rest of us can get on with deciding our own futures?
