Thread: British Author on Future of the UK

    Default British Author on Future of the UK

    Interesting article -- I just came back from 3 weeks in Scotland and much of this article resonates with what I saw and experienced. I would be interested in what my UK colleagues think about this...

    I don't disagree with all he said but it's an opinion piece by a political journo producing something from his paternity leave.
    I did wonder what he'd make of a tour of the USA having read this 'So long as an American president has carried the Electoral College, it is irrelevant whether they were rejected by the voters in a given state because, at root, the voters are Americans first...' But, thankfully, we don't discuss politics on this forum.

    thought provoking piece, although I'm not sure what I make of it.

    First sentence had me in hysterics... no other country - close to its own dissolution etc. Has he seen America recently?

    As to the rest of it, I hope it was written on really soft paper and not Izal medicated.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion however, so he can write what he likes.

    I think lots of it is just opinionated tosh though.

    By the way, I wonder which 2 wars we have lost? Vietnam? Oh no, America lost that one...

    With all due respect to all parties concerned, I believe this thread is violating the "prime directive" of this group concerning no discussion of religion or politics. I would recommend terminating this thread. Just my opinion. Regards to all.

    You have a good point. Nothing wrong with some open discussion but if it gets out of hand we will close it.
