England will give their full support for Scottish Independence]
The SNP will not win an outright

upon honouring its pledge to hold a referendum on

EDP manifesto at the 1997 General Election and the 1999 European
Election. We are pleased to hear the comments of the SNP leader about
these matters with which we heartily agree and we wish him and his loyal
friends a wonderful VICTORY.]

the people of both countries have a say if there is to be a parting of
the ways, and do so with their eyes open.
The principle of self-determination means, of course,
that one country could not stop the other doing what it wanted. BUT the
SNP, as far as we know, is not proposing unilateral secession.

HOW HAS IT COME TO THIS?
Fifty years ago, the question would never have arisen.
Not until the late 1960's, around the time of the first barrels of North
Sea oil came ashore, did the SNP make any breakthrough. Devolution was a
bid to arrest what was seen as a slide to

For goodness sake, which other nation would celebrate its
300th birthday in such a mealy -mouthed way, with the minting of a £2
pound coin, and that's it?

Scotland has always been in the heart of such a people and from
the 1930's from a small band of loyalists they now have their OWN
PARLIAMENT and in a few years THEIR INDEPENDENCE.
Governments particularly after WWII were always nervous of
the Welsh and Scottish growing feelings for their identities and
government official documents made this clear in the regional
development. To think for a moment that the situation would not lead
eventually to a need for another compromise Union in the future was
pushed under the carpet. It was and is today in April 2007 the

anticipate the reality of the situation and have had a 21st century
