I have just finished a cursory scan of the White Paper “Scotland’s Future” which (at long last) answers some of the fundamental questions raised by this website answered:
Q590. There will be no change in the constitutional position of the Church of Scotland. A real shame. As a disestablishmentarianist, I am strongly in favour of severing all legal ties between church and state. For a brand new state to begin by entrenching one denomination in preference to others is a bad idea. Repeal the Church of Scotland Act 1921.
Q474. Scotland will still get to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest – although prequalification will probably be lost. Scotland has no great track record in reaching the knockout rounds of international competitions, but I couldn’t care less about Eurovision, so no biggie here!
Q219. Qualification for the Scottish rugby team will be unaffected, but crucially there is no word on whether the name of the British & Irish Lions would change post-independence. WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO HIDE???
