The Scottish Play

I haven't paid much attention to the independence question, don't have any deep insight into it, and certainly wouldn't consider it my place to say how people should vote on the subject, but I have been quite fascinated with the rhetoric coming from both major UK parties about it. I mean, basically their rhetoric has been the same, with perhaps a bit more leaning on "fear fear fear" from the Tories and "let's all hold hands" from Labour, but overall it's been incredibly condescending, precisely the opposite you'd want. If I were in Scotland, I'd probably vote Yes just to give them the middle finger over it.
