Food for thought: Scottish Independence?

With the referendum on Scottish independence on the cards this September, WORLDbytes volunteers hosted this new show entitled ‘Food for thought’ to get to grips with what is going on. Is the Scottish independence campaign ‘phoney’ as the SNP is for the queen, the pound and the EU? Is this really fatalism, a belief that nothing will change so why not ‘walk away’ from the UK and with the same political outfits running the show, hope for the best? Guests don’t hold back from arguing that Scottish independence is a mistake and the campaign is led by a defunct political class who, like colonial overlords rather than democrats, prefer authoritarian behaviour change to substantive ideas. As one volunteer at the table puts it, if they have great ideas “why not argue for them UK wide.”
