Whether you’re for or against an independent Scotland, or maybe you’re not entirely convinced either way, this film makes the positive case for Scottish independence in a light-hearted, self-effacing fashion.
Forget the historic grudges, the ancient battles and the unjustly romanticized idols, Scottish independence isn’t about “us and them”, it isn’t about anti-Englishness, it isn’t about ownership, it isn’t even about the SNP!

Good attempt but, youre talking nonsense about the Darien Scheme. IT WAS NOT THE PREMISE FOR THE UNION. The thing that started of the Act of Union was due to the fact that ENGLAND was BANKRUPT even more than Scotland. Due to the war in SPAIN.
The English Government was in debt to the tune of £14.5M in1707 doubling to £36M by 1715. While the Scots goverment was in Debt to the tune of ~£3M (if that!)
The Union of 1707 Why and How by Paul Henderson Scott, The Saltire Society
IMHO Unionism sucks! Historically .it was not a good idea for the Russians , it was not a good idea for the Germans and Austrians , or even the Scandics . Its always been about minorities exploiting the majority!!
Today it is not a good idea for Europeans
Or for the Scottish ,Welsh , Irish and English!
INDEPENDENCE IS THE ANSWER! AND CONTROLLING YOUR OWN RESOURSES ! NO COUNTRY THAT HAS ENJOYED INDEPENDENCE EVER REGRETS IT!!
THERE ARE NO FORMER SOVIET UNIONISTS DEMANDING TO RE-UNITE, THERE ARE NO SOUTHERN IRISH DEMANDING TO BE LET BACK INTO THE UK, EVEN WITH THIER DIRE ECONOMIC SITUATION. GREENLAND LEFT THE EU AND IS BOOMING, HIGHER STANDARDS OF LIVING THAN THE GERMANS. THE CZECHS AND THE SLOVAKS ARE VERY HAPPY WITH THIER “NEW” COUNTRIES AS WELL!
SO WHAT WE WAITING FOR? THE UK IS BANKRUPT AFTER A FINANCIAL BOOM PERIOD !! TO CONTINUE WITH THE SAME ACTIONS AND EXPECT A DIFFERENT RESULT IS CLINICAL INSANITY!!!….OR ARE YOU HAPPY BEING A DEBTOR SLAVE FOR UNPROFITABLE AND FRAUDULENT BANKERS AND SENDING YOUR CHILDREN OF TO SLAUGHTER AND BE SLAUGHTERED IN SOME ILLEGAL WAR?
SOLUTION IS INDEPENDENCE AND DIRECT DEMOCRACY
