Sadly not surprised by many of the replies to this.

An inconvenient truth for angry (not all) Scottish nationalists - Scotland wasn’t a victim of the Empire, it was at the heart of it.

Despite all the mud slinging from msm and unionists I will always be for Scottish independence
This is not an SNP thing independence is about Scotland and us being responsible for ourselves

That's nothing even near the truth. It's just today's Labour effort to try and pretend that Scottish independence would somehow be different from the independence enjoyed by most normal countries in the world. 'Empire' is not where the wish for self determination comes from.

I'm strongly in favour of Scottish independence, but to paint Scotland as an unwitting victim of England's colonial tendencies is historical revisionism gone mad. Scots were engaged in the worst excesses of Empire at all levels, and to suggest otherwise is utterly disingenuous.

No, Scotland doesn't benefit from Westminster rule. Not at all. And it's time we take the gloves off and point out the harsh reality of the last days of the British Empire.

The BBC is celebrating Jamaican independence, which is fantastic. I wonder how it will celebrate Scottish independence?

If wanting Scottish Independence means we are anti English ( According to Tories) surely that also means we are anti Welsh and anti Northern Irish or is it just the usual England = UK and the other countries don't matter?

All my life, since age 17, I’ve longed for Scottish Independence. Now, in my 60’s, I’m really not sure I can vote for it when it leads to and the . If only Nicola Sturgeon’s ‘feminist to the fingertips’ was from the inside out, rather than the outside in.

I’m a Scottish Independence supporter and activist and I’m aware that Anas Sarwar is not. This isn’t what this is about though, it’s not about party politics.

I saw a fellow ethnic minority be subjected to racism online and I called it out.

This truth lies at the core of the independence debate. Nationalists want to portray Scotland as chiefly a victim of British imperialism, when in fact it was a major beneficiary. Scots are Carmela Soprano, basically. twitter.com/AustinVTran/st…

An inconvenient truth for Anas Sarwar is that many poor Scots,like the Irish, were as much victims of the British empire as the poor of India,Pakistan, Kenya and the West Indies among others.
Not everyone was a good Christian business owner who got rich on the misery of the poor.

Here’s a poll, and ideally I’d love it if you lively people gave it a retweet.
It would be great to get a massive sample.
Scottish independence voters have you gone from:

Next time the Tories claim that Scottish independence would be just too difficult in practice, let's remind them that they're planning to sell off whole chunks of the UK to the private sector as autonomous Charter Cities.

Paul Singh Scotland meets the criteria of being a colony.
Truth is not racist.
Truth is not bigoted.
Truth is not offensive.
All of that was written in English - the language of the coloniser.

Scottish Independence is now really just a matter of self respect, and how far we are willing to be treated like shit before saying enough if enough

I think my support for Scottish independence has transformed from ‘moderate and pragmatic’ to ‘absolutely uncompromising’. I’d say to my many unionist friends that this is the consequence of the parties they support. I see no lifeline to decency save a complete break with Britain
