The post below was sent to me as a comment and I thought it rather good at explaining the unjustifiable position of the snp and the supporters of separation.
I went to vote in the Euro elections the other day. A party near the bottom of their list caught my eye - 'Yorkshire First'.
They claim to be 'progressive' of the 'centre' and promise to put the interests of 'Yorkshire people first'. They claim that Westminster is full of poisonous cynics who do nothing much than stuff their own pockets and therefore separating from this Westminster 'elite' is part of their 'socialist agenda'. The say they are 'inclusive' but you have to be proper Yorkshire and display the white rose. They also claim that Yorkshire has a legitimate royal and monarchical line symbolised by Richard III whom the Tudor elite (in London) has spent years vilifying. as the biggest county Yorkshire could quite easily 'go it alone' they claim. I would like to ask the SNP nationalists here if any of this sounds familiar. The reason I ask this, is that one of my colleagues is a SNP supporter and when I described this 'party' to him, he called them 'nutters', 'idiots' and 'small town flag waving xenophobes'. But in truth they do not say much that is different from the SNP as far as I can see. The Yorkshire First guy at the voting depot wore a White Rose and kept on about how 'Yorkshire people' were 'decent' not 'like southerners'. Again, sound familiar?
Please, you must make common cause with working people across the country not run away from the hard fight against the Tories that is coming by turning your backs on the rest of us who are still battling in Liverpool, Manchester and believe it or not, in the poor districts of London.
