Scotland’s manifest destiny?

Simon Jenkins concludes: “For the English to understand the origins of those with whom they share the British Isles is not an antiquarian foible. It is a constitutional necessity.”

Indeed so. I can’t shake the feeling that we are where we are for a reason.

Isn’t there clear evidence of the guiding hand of Providence at work here? Can it be any mere accident of geography that our island is as a reclining man, with Scotland where the head and brains would be, and London and the South East, the rump where one would do one’s business?

Coincidence? I don’t think so.
