Scots ignore rest of UK opinions

The Scottish National Party seems to be very keen to talk about the break-up of the Union with London, or England, but less keen to discuss what the other regions of the UK have to say.

We in Cornwall, with our own language and culture, feel that a Union without Scotland will be much the poorer, as, I am sure, do our Welsh cousins. Yet Alex Salmond has given us no say.

He is also keen to avoid discussion of the largely Scottish legacy issues in the north of Ireland.

The current protests over restrictions on the flying of the Union flag in Belfast seem to have a fair few saltires present.
