I find two things disturbing about reactions to the Scottish Government’s position on Brexit. Firstly, the mindless, vitriolic hatred that British nationalist fanatics have for Nicola Sturgeon. Many of these extremists can’t even bring themselves to write her name. There’s a rancid sickness here that is alien to the civilised, enlightened society Scotland aspires to be; but which, evidently, isn’t at all out of place in British politics.
Then there’s the unionists’ increasingly shrill insistence that Scotland must simply accept whatever fate is imposed by the British state. And do so meekly and without protest. Ideological unionists are quite genuinely offended by the democratically elected Scottish Government respecting the democratically expressed will of the Scottish electorate.
They are sore affronted that the government Scotland elected refuses to bow the knee to a government Scotland rejected.
They are rendered apoplectic by the First Minister presuming to put Scotland’s people before the ruling elites of the British state.
It is this sneering, snarling contempt for democracy and disparaging disdain for Scotland’s people that has to be the most disturbing aspect of British nationalism.
