This is a very excellent point! They have been allowed to call themselves ‘Brexiteers’, which makes them sound all brave and swashbuckley, but really their mentality is far more Separatist than Indy folk have ever been. We want Scotland to be an active participant in the world. They want to turn their backs and huddle alone on their wee bit of island.
So, I’ll be calling them ‘Brit Separatists’ from now on.
In related news: Not that they’ll use them much, insular creatures that they are, but the Separatists plan on reverting to a blue cover for their passports.
I’m curious why they believe their blue passport to be “iconic”. I did a very quick check online and found that loads of countries have or had blue passports. I remember various EU states used blue before adopting the burgundy of the EU passport. So, it’s not at all ‘iconically British’. It’s just another example of Separatist lies… or is it ignorance? Who knows (or cares)?
To be honest, I’m not that bothered what colour my passport is. I’m more concerned by how well it does it’s job. Like, for example, will it allow me free movement through 27 other European countries? I like when my passport does that. Also, where it says ‘United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland’, I don’t like that on a passport at all! It should ideally say: ‘Republic of Scotland/Alba’. It can be Saltire blue if you like – that’s awfi pretty – but EU burgundy is nice too.
But none of that even matters. What matters is that it won’t be an EU passport, the only kind I’ve ever had. Instead it will be the pathetic symbol of a small, corrupt and degenerate state run by hateful, frightened, insular people. It makes me truly heartsick to contemplate how my world will be changed and diminished…
Anyway, it’s not happened yet and we still have our own referendum to come. Big congrats to Catalunya on their election results by the way!
