"English born people in Scotland could be Scottish and UK citizens."

Hmmm. Surely that would mean they weren't English then . . . or would it be more like being awarded a badge of Scottishness? I'd check the buggers voting history if I were you.

"For there to be a continued festering hatred there would need to be an existing one!"

Then it's time for Scots to recognise that 'the English' are not to blame for the state of this union any more than they are, they were equal partners in empire and they don't have exclusivity on progressive politics or the promotion of a humane and equal society. Appalling all these generalisations, aren't they?

Kings, Queens, Dukes, Earls, Lairds, Barons, politicians, Clan Cheifs business etc etc are responsible for repressing the ordinary folk of these islands for centuries, and we can kick the ball back and fore across Hadrian's Wall until we're all dead and buried and a thing won't change.

We should all be equals. Once the Scots go, the chance of us as a people uniting to stop these parasitic poltroons will be gone, so we need another way. Scotland should lead this way, but recognise they are no more the chosen ones of these islands than anyone else; suggesting the Scots have sole access to the moral high ground hints at deeply flawed mindset: all the British people should know this by now.
