So, my position is this: the referendum is to decide independence, not anything else. I want to see a change for a fairer and more equal society, and I wish for a cleaner environment, and want a healthier NHS, amongst other things. Those are causes to fight for in themselves, and I don't want them just for me, and my neighbours who happen to live in Scotland. That line between England and Scotland has little meaning to me and I don't want to be distracted from more important issues by expending too much thought and effort on national and historical divisions. As cellist Pablo Casals said “The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?”
