Tom Holland on our island story: what England and Scotland share politically and morally →

letsstaytogetherblog:

Tom Holland has written a great piece for the New Statesman on the important historical bonds between England and Scotland:

Much will depend on whether the United Kingdom holds together. The decision on that, in the short term, rests with the Scottish electorate alone. Nevertheless, all those in the rest of the island who profoundly value their bonds of citizenship with the Scots, who would be distraught to see them become foreigners, and who believe that the referendum, far from separating us, may instead enable us to repledge our vows, can but watch on in hope. British identity remains what it has always been: a journey, not an end.
