One of my tweets didn’t make the final mix, as follows:
If the Scots decide to go for independence, good for them. They are fully entitled to do that. I am great believer in the basic right to self-determination. Me, and other Sassenachs, expressing a view is more likely to irritate those north of the border than anything else.
If they decide to stay in the union, that’s good also.
Those south of the border will have to get on with life whichever course is decided upon by those north of it.
Next subject please. I find the whole subject of the referendum rivettingly boring. I mean no disrespect to the Scots by that. I find Scotland and the Scots themselves infinitely inspiring and charming.
