Somebody wants Scottish secession, with extras!

Mrs R spotted this comment in the Guardian yesterday, relating to an article written by
Will Hutton

If the UK leaves the EU I will be one of the first in Scotland to sign-up for secession,joining the Euro, banning the English from taking jobs north of the border if there is a citizen from anywhere in the EU qualified and willing to take it, putting tariffs on all English imports....

Mrs R thinks this is a fair indication of the deep, ingrained, almost institutional, hatred that some Scots have of everything and everybody south of the border.

She reckons that if this person's wishes were ever fulfilled it should be on the condition that those Scots currently living in England, and in positions of authority within a country they may dislike, should return north!
