"Though I’ve lived in Scotland most of my life, I was born in Oxford to an English mother and a Norwegian father. We have a holiday cottage in Sweden only a few miles over the open border with Norway. From this international perspective I can see no barriers, physical or emotional, between an independent Scotland and the rest of Great Britain.
Scotland should be independent because, quite simply, it is a nation. UN recognised nation status is an experience for which there is no substitute. Independence for Scotland is economically viable so why shouldn’t our country seek that goal?" Eilif Gustafson (Newton Stewart)
