  1. Also being of mixed Scots and English parents - I do NOT find being asked to lose the union uncomfortable.
    However I think that the issues should not be about nationality in the personal sense ie the real discussion here must be about a 'nation' - a nation that is composed equally of all those who choose to live and contribute to be a PART of it at a very real level (after all - we all came from Africa in the beginning?!).
    If this incredibly important debate becomes mired in a petty shouting match about who was born where and who one's granny was....what a wasted opportunity it will be.
