The Greater Number

It's Salmond versus Sturgeon, yet only one of them will sleep with the fishes. And people wonder why we are not enthusiastic for secession or devolution. Scottish and Welsh devolution have served our people ill, and so would assemblies run by the likes of Nick Forbes or the Mob in Durham County Hall, with their equivalents around the regions.

We want to strengthen families and communities by securing economic equality and international peace through the democratic political control of the mean to those ends, including national and parliamentary sovereignty.

We are the majority, or at least the single largest bloc. Ours are the votes that decide the outcomes of national referendums and of General Elections. Why should we secede? Why should we be fobbed off with devolution, which where it already exists has already had its intended divisive effect upon and among us?

Nor will we be distracted by obviously impractical schemes to move Parliament to one of our centres of population, so that we could fight among ourselves as to which it was to be. Parliament could stay exactly where it was, as of course it was always going to do. And we should run it. Then the whole country would benefit from the rule of people to whom coke was for smelting, not snorting.
