Jamie McLeod: The Yes movement must win an emotional victory
Writer Jamie McLeod explains why he cares about Scottish independence and why emotions really matter
SCOTLAND. What is it? Is it a nation, a colony, a province or simply an idea?
I grew up in an obscure part of Scotland where fishing and Rangers FC was life – nothing else really mattered. Growing up 30 miles north of Aberdeen, I would have been forgiven for not realising just how close I was to Scotland’s third city.
The difference in accent, tradition, culture and mentality still to this day astonishes me.
