The Cause of Independence is on Track
Although the desperate state of the economy has overshadowed everything else in the politics of Britain the cause of independence for Scotland and Wales (and let us not forget England) is on track. In addition, northern Ireland is on track to join with the Republic and Ireland will eventually be reunited. It is only a matter of time.
The general election and its outcome, a Liberal-Conservative coalition, is a welcome development following thirteen years of retrogressive "socialism" veering towards totalitarianism which characterised the regime of New Labour, and acted as a brake on progress towards a new era for the nations of the British Isles. The previous Secretaries of State for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland were diffident if not opposed to the holding of referenda on further radical devolution. With a return to a golden era of civil liberty and greater democracy which has been promised by the present coalition the insistent cause of independence is once more on track.
