Who Said This Today?
Supporters of independence will always be able to cite examples of small,independent and thriving economies across Europe such as Finland, Switzerland and Norway. It would be wrong to suggest that Scotland could not be another such successful, independent country.
As seventeen responses to the question have already given the correct answer I won't be spoiling anything by reveling that it was none other than David Cameron, the Conservative party leader. It is part of a comment by him in today's Telegraph.
Lest you think that Cameron is about to defect to the SNP, it should be noted that the article is a defence of the Union by the Tory leader in which he says
we need to continue to make the positive case for a united Britain by ensuring that the Union remains relevant to all English and Scottish people.
Despite disagreeing with Mr Cameron it is good to see that he, at least accepts, that there is nothing in the Union that is relevant to the People of Wales. Or is it just that to him and his unionist cronies Gordon Brown and Ming Cambell Wales is an seen as an irrelevant part of the Union? Whatever the answer there is no doubt in my mind that the sooner Wales becomes independent of this Union the better. Then we can join the likes of the small, independent and thriving economies across Europe such as Finland, Switzerland and Norway
