Historic they call it. This day.

The Scottish National Party certainly deserve praise for winning an overall majority in a parliamentary system designed to make such a victory a most unlikely event.

I was quite liking the minority government approach, the consensus politics, a kinda sensible attitude towards government.

I just hope Alex and his minions appreciate that consensus is still a good thing when you make policies! Even with a majority!

And towards the precipice of independence our nation inches. The peak over the edge will be scary. If we take the plunge, I am sure the ride will be thrilling. But what’s at the bottom?
