You’ve probably all seen the video from Newsnight in England last week in which to all-round guffawing, an audience member suggested exporting nuclear waste to Scotland, I’ve posted it below in case you haven’t managed to catch it.
What may or may not have been a throwaway one-liner from the audience member is not really what interested me. I was more intrigued by the language he used.
“Could we not export it to Scotland and then give them their independence?”
I’ll leave it to you to work out what that says about sense of entitlement and equal partnerships and so on.
