And this is precisely the point I am making, I hope. People are, of course, voting for a wide range of reasons in the Scottish referendum (and I will not be) but when it comes down to it there are, I believe, just two prevailing themes which are being lost in all the noise, and they are the ‘keep the status quo, bad as it is’ campaign and the ‘I think we can do better than this’ campaign.
It’s not a for or against the Union issue.
Or a for or against the SNP issue.
Although it is a for or against Westminster issue, because that is core to the argument.
It is about vision, passion, and a desire to change by rocking a rotten boat that is so comfortable for a few that they’d rather not reform its obvious flaws."
