I don't hate the English. Sometimes I find their accent quite annoying. But then again there's more than one English accent and I used to find the way my former boss laughed quite annoying. But got on with her just fine otherwise.
Not liking every aspect of a culture or people or person doesn't mean you hate them. I cringe every time NEDs and junkies are interviewed on the news as though they're representative of Scotland. But I don't hate Scotland or the Scottish people.
As for the UK Government being run by the English. Maybe Melanie should do some research and come to realise Scots have actually filled the position of Prime Minister of many occasions. Not to mention virtually every other higher and lower office of state.
This referendum isn't about hatred. It's about the desire for self determination and a need to rid ourselves of the corruption of Westminster. For Scotland to go it's own way as is natural for a nation to do and take decisions that are in the best interests of it's people.
I'll be voting YES to independence and my English, Welsh, Irish and Northern Irish friends will be more than welcome in my home.
