"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Friday Post

I had to wait for this one from Munguin's Republic but it was worth it for the unbridled optimism of the post. The Scots Nats have fought long and hard to get where they are today (nursing hangovers?) and they deserve this victory.

Let's see where it takes us from here and one day, perhaps, England will also have cause to celebrate.

I'm not going to go into the pitfalls of devolution or the breaking up of the UK here - I've mentioned them before and will probably do so again, but not now.

As SubRosa says: breathtaking, marvellous, wonderful, superb, braw.
