I’ve been doing a little series of the most banal reasons given for keeping the union together.
This one however, is a little different. With the importance of things like what kind of society we choose to live in, how to organise our democratic structures, the quality of life of the people and other matters at stake, the BBC and other media outlets have chosen to focus on what the new flag of the UK might look like if Scotland left.
Banal Non-Retentive, if you like.
Is this really the most important thing they could think to talk about?
Maybe it is, so in the spirit of not being a party-pooper and making a little joke if it, I decided to do one for them so that we can then get back to the serious matters at hand…
