As an Anglo-Scot of no fixed political allegiance I fear the SNP has inadvertently made Scotland a much more aggressive, intolerant and, dare one say it, sectarian place in which to stay.
The venom and stridency in its campaigning have transferred to other parties.
Where there was once gentle inter-national banter there is now malice.
Small wonder that the rest of the UK is becoming more and more resentful and is likely to respond in a way that will be detrimental to us all, whatever our political persuasion.
