The paradoxes of nationalist faith

Sir,

So Angus Robertson, the SNP’s depute leader has warned Theresa May that denying the Scottish Parliament a vote on Brexit will make Scottish independence “inevitable”. This is the SNP’s standard threat when they don’t get what they want.

But surely, as a good nationalist, Mr Robertson believes independence is inevitable full stop, so what does it really matter what Theresa May does?

On the other hand he might think that by refusing to accede to the request for a second referendum, Mrs May is hurrying along the glorious day when independence dawns. In that case the Prime Minister deserves Mr Robertson’s most heart-felt gratitude.

Yours etc
Linda Holt
