“London has already broken away from the United Kingdom”

The Observer’s columnist Kevin McKenna is a great writer: I might not always agree with him, but the man knows how to make an argument. Today’s piece about what he sees as the inevitability of Scots independence is a belter.

Unionists, me included, have talked loftily about dangers of break-up and separation in a world that is thirsting for continuity and stability.

Yet we conveniently overlook the fact that London has already broken away from the United Kingdom and now exists as a world super-state governed by the greed of unhindered capitalism and recognisable as British only by its taxis and bad service.
