Voluntary union

This month is the 60th anniversary of the publication of the Royal Commission on Scottish Affairs 1952 – 1954.

I would urge all who are interested in the future of Scotland to read it. I would highlight the following: “The dissatisfaction (as regards Scotland’s relationship with England) is partly founded on a widespread belief that the Treaty 1707 is no longer remembered as the voluntary union of two proud people, each with their own distinctive national characteristics and traditions, but rather as the absorption of Scotland by England.”

The referendum will answer that last point.
