Scotland’s position in the Union has led to a very interesting form of nationalism. It’s led to an attitude where Scots try desperately to justify ourselves from the perspective of the English, rather than justifying it to ourselves. We barely even speak our own language any more. Rather than being a nation which is self-assured in its qualities and abilities, we’re constantly under pressure to remind the rest of the world that we’re even a nation, never mind promoting what’s actually great about Scotland. This is what the Union has done to us, it’s turned us into nationalists.
