Independence from Scotland?
Independence from Nicola Sturgeon, is what the Shetland Islands have voted for.
The Shetlands never fell under the spell of nationalism. Their MP is a Lib Dem and the Local Authority have voted 18 to two, for a motion to pursue a policy of Independence from Scotland, whilst maintaining ties to the UK as a Crown Dependency.
The Local Authority stated, that the islanders want to pursue "financial and political self-determination".
Whom shall be next, the Kingdom of Fife?
This has to be a massive blow to the Nationalists. They spend most of their time rebelling against Westminster and forgetting to Govern and they've totally missed the rebellion brewing against them in the North.
A rebellion that would take a sizable chunk of Scotland's oil. This is a serious situation.
We may see a referendum on the Islands, and in the name of Democracy, the nationalists would be powerless to stop it. I think Westminster will be rubbing their hands together.
