Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Blood & Treasure

If Novoscotiya is really going to secede from Ukania what the better together campaign needs to be doing right now is organising the post referendum resistance, the 'reunify' movement. Whoever wins, the vote is going to be close, there are millions of people in Scotland who don't subscribe to the McKipperist hallucinations, and voting, by its nature, is provisional, this being an especial feature of referenda. An independence vote decides many things. It settles nothing so long as people may be willing to change their minds.

 This might seem a tall order for demoralised Unionists (and the much larger community of not-separatists) and the way in which London has collapsed souffle-like from smugness into a kind of hysterical despair doesn't bode well. But the separation process will be long and difficult and will end in a state of affairs that messes up both countries, so there are plenty of both practical and moral reasons to try and rectify the situation: and, surely, it will be impossible not to say 'I told you so'. So it follows that this should be said in an organised way and be shaped to point towards a particular outcome.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
