Respect agenda

Have your say

John Kelly opines (Letters, July 26) that the “desire for [Scottish] independence... is simply a matter of self-respect. No Englishman would want England to be ruled by a Scottish government.”

If your self-respect is dependent on what happens to a historically-accidental artificial entity called a country, then you have lost your self-respect by fusing it, in imagination, with a false god.
