Indeed everyone has the right to their own destiny. And I am sure that for those like me, that consider themselves English first, there are those that consider themselves Scottish first also.
However our two countries have been joined together for hundreds of years, and now share common ancestry,
The English gave up their right of self determination in the name of the British Nation, to the point we are "oppressed" more than the other members of the union.
But that still doesn't men I want to see the breakup of my country. What's next? An independent Wales. Cornwall.
The issue is not being independent from England. But saying, you know what guys, I no longer want to be part of your union!.
if that the case, we might as well forget the whole thing. Disolve the commonwealth, hold referendum in Australia Canada, New Zealand on the Monarchy And she can go back to being just Queen of England. and that's it.
I just can't see how it could be good for us as one nation!
