Scottish Independence and Scotland's Future
Draft Constitution General
On looking around it is
hard to remember that it was Scots who taught the world constitutional
government, because the level of constitutional illiteracy in the
country is quite staggering. It is not simply a lack of knowledge of a
fundamental law, but a lack of even the most basic sense of propriety in
the conduct of public affairs. In what other country in the civilised
world would – or could – a handful of politicians decide to build a new
parliament building without as much as asking the elected
representatives (in Westminster or Edinburgh) whether they wanted one?
And, furthermore, have no sense of having done anything wrong?
