Spoiled choice

“Should Scotland be an ­independent country?” This is not a coherently defined question and nobody should be made to feel that they have to answer Yes or No.

The real question is what kind of federation(s) or confederation(s) can be made to cover the islands, principally Albion and Ierne, in replacement of the Treaty of Union; which is all that ­Britain has at present to pass for a constitution.

However, I shall be ­voting, and as a democrat I hope that there is a high turn-out. I shall simply write on the ballot: “To be counted as a spoiled paper.”
