A much deeper and more profound matter is raised by Donald Lewis (Letters, 3 June) commenting on one of your correspondents’ threat to boycott B&Q because one of its top people expressed the wish that the UK would be better kept intact.
What kind of one-party state could lie in wait should the people of this country vote to separate?
A country where expressing an opinion contrary to Nationalist dogma incurs the wrath of the most zealous followers.
A secret police perhaps to spy on those having the temerity to suggest the emperor may in fact be unclothed?
In a free country we should be able to boycott whatever retail establishment we wish.
But after reading some of the letters and social media threats and abuse suffered by the B&Q executive, once more the dark underbelly of Nationalism is revealed.
I truly fear that this is merely the thin edge of the wedge and being considered “anti-Scottish” in a separated Scotland now brings on Orwellian images.
