Divided Britain

England wants its independence

Here's an interesting story. While a recent vote on Scottish independence was defeated, it seems popular opinion on both sides of Hadrian's Wall is beginning to lean towards it.

A clear majority of people in both England and Scotland are in favour of full independence for Scotland, an ICM opinion poll for The Sunday Telegraph has found. Independence is backed by 52 per cent of Scots while an astonishing 59 per cent of English voters want Scotland to go it alone.

Maybe it's time, since it's been almost 10 years since the Stone of Scone was returned.
