Last quote by Ian Jack

Brexit has been an abject lesson in the pain of separation. Scottish nationalists should take note – and remember just how significant the UK can be. The Scottish referendum was held only a little more than three years ago, but it belongs to a different political age – the all-male era of Cameron, Clegg, Miliband, Osborne and Salmond – and in my case, a different emotional one. In the run-up to the yes/no vote on Scottish independence, I wrote a long piece on what Britain meant to me as a place and Britishness as an identity, ending with the thought that if the yes side succeeded, then the United Kingdom that had shaped so many of us would no longer exist. “If it happens, I shall grieve” was my closing sentence.feedback
