So we should soon know if Scotland will be left in the hands of a Power-crazed Scottish Politician or left in the hand of a bunch of people who apparently live in Cloud Cuckoo Land (formally known as Westminster).
Whilst I am totally fed up with (and slightly puzzled by) the vitriol being poured out by both sides of the Scotland debate - as well as the lack of real understanding of Scottish history by either side (just Google "Darien" and read the articles) - I am really angry at the missed opportunities.
Forget the fact that the Scottish independence debate affects two of my friends who live in Scotland (both Scottish) and me - yet only two of us got a vote in it. What has got me so angry is that we should have framed it as a debate about the whole of the UK getting independence from Westminster and London.
London has become a country in its own right. The best thing we could do is move the seat of Government from London to a more central location (ie, Birmingham) and force the MPs to have lived "real" lives before standing for Government. The currect crop of politicians can stay in London.
