YOU state in your leader comment of 30 November: “Some Yes voters who swallowed the ‘No means nothing’ rhetoric during the independence campaign have been puzzled – even pleasantly surprised – to discover that No has actually meant a substantial step forward.”
How nice for them! Please spare a thought for us No voters who swallowed the “No means No” rhetoric during the independence campaign and who are puzzled – even rather angry – to discover that No has actually meant a substantial ceding of ground to the nationalists. Very few of us voted No because we wanted more powers. If we had really wanted more powers then, logically, we would have voted Yes and got them all. Who speaks for us unionists who are being taken for a ride by our political class?
