I only like to draw attention to how severely split the vote was, and to how the Tories appear to be ‘forbidden’ in Scotland.
The fact that the Scots (as well as people of Northern Ireland and Wales) have so different preferences than the English should be worrisome.
Few other countries offer similar examples, and I would note the Ukrainian presidential elections (January 2010) and the Iraqi parlamentary elections (March 2010).
These are both rather disfunctional democracies, and as a ‘fan of Britain’, I’d certainly not want to see the British democracy take that rather secessionist path.
Therefore, I dare asking here: is such a split vote the sign that the union between England and Scotland is about to crack? Do the 2010 Elections boost the chances of an independent Scotland?
