The Sunday Telegraph commissioned an ICM poll that found:
The United Kingdom should be broken up and Scotland and England set free as independent nations, according to a huge number of voters on both sides of the border. . .The poll comes only months before the 300th anniversary of the Act of Union between England and Scotland and will worry all three main political parties.
Naturally, the Telegraph could not be bothered to tell us how many people were actually polled. We are just supposed to assume the poll is accurate, though it measures not people actually leaving a voting booth where they have pulled the plug on dear old Britain, but their perhaps transitory feelings at the present moment.
However, the poll may be accurate. Certainly the English think it unfair to spend more public money per head in Scotland than in England, especially since much of the money comes from English pockets. The English also think it unfair that Scottish MPs can vote on issues that are of importance only in England, while a Scottish Parliament handles Scottish-only issues. And doubtless the Scottish have legitimate complaints against the English. Doubtless, too, these concerns about equity could be resolved without tearing up Britain.
The worries of the politicians, all opposed to dissolving Britain, can be taken less seriously. After all, they have been trying to destroy Britain for years by selling the whole country to the European Union.
That brings us to SOS. Needing a website to post their eloquent case against the European Union, they found a berth with us here.
SOS joins the Bruges Group, CIB, the Freedom Association, Better Off Out, UKIP, and others in bringing all the weight of common sense to bear against the European Union and for Britain.
