Euro-Skeptics and Petty Nationalists
Gerry Hassan, The Scotsman
Europe has been in the headlines in the last two weeks. There was Alex Salmond’s little legal controversy on EU matters, followed by David Cameron’s problems with his backbenchers on Europe. If it is possible to rise above Scots insularity and petty partisanship, which we have seen in the last week, it would be helpful to note the wider European and international dimension in which the Scottish self-government and independence debate is now located.
