Here’s the Scotsman headline:
‘Scottish independence ‘would be terrible’ says Donald Trump’
Needless to say, he was less than clear on his reasoning other than thinking that renaming the ‘British Open’ the ‘Scottish Open’ would be some kind of disaster?
On the 2014 Referendum, he said:
‘It would be terrible. They just went through hell.’
I know Kezia looks as if she did but I don’t remember it being hellish. Wasn’t it a vibrant demonstration of popular democracy in action much admired across the world?
See this from the great Neal Ascherson in the Guardian in 2014
‘In the past three days, Scots have looked at one another and asked: “What do we do with all that joyful commitment, with the biggest surge of creative democratic energy that Scotland has ever seen?” For many, perhaps thousands of people, it has been the most important public experience in their lives.’
If you’ve been watching any of the Donald’s performances recently, you can only think it’s a good sign that he’s agin Scottish independence.
