Scottish Independence and Scotland's Future
Draft Constitution General Principles

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?
