The Scottish media’s handling of the ongoing constitutional impasse regarding a second independence referendum has come under scrutiny for its perceived one-sidedness and for framing the issue as primarily a matter for the SNP.
After 8 years as First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon resigns with dignity and maturity to promote unity and leave behind a legacy of approval ratings her opponents can only dream of. A shock to many, her departure marks the end of an era in Scottish politics.
For decades opponents of independence have insisted that Scotland is financially dependent upon England, people in England have absorbed this message too, and naturally wonder if they would not be better off if they ditched an ungrateful Scotland.
It is fair to say that over the past 20 years Scotland has forged a more inclusive notion of nationalism, while Anglo-British nationalism is characterised by British exceptionalism.
