    Scotland thanks #Richard_Leonard, not just for giving us the biggest #Holyrood laugh of 2017, but a #key_objective with which to enter 2018 - "To join the #small_independent_countries with higher #GDPs and #growth_rates by becoming independent ourselves."

    All #Scotland's problems won't be solved by getting the hell out of this #Disunited_Kingdom - just most of the key ones. We'll still make mistakes - we're human - but they'll be our mistakes, not those of a Scotland-hostile government in Westminster - a self-serving narrow clique

    #separatist A person who supports the separation of a particular group of people from a larger body on the basis of #ethnicity, #religion, or #gender. #Scotland and #Catalonia do not seek independence on any of these, but on historical, geographical, economic and cultural grounds

  10. Word #ethnicity is now confusing, and original definition is inadequate, with usage tending to refer to #racial_origin and physical characteristics, rather than just #national_origin. e.g. "a common national or cultural tradition", as census questions on #ethnic_origin make clear

  11. I almost felt sorry for #Tom_Gordon. How to write a sketch piece on #FMQs and omit mentioning #Richard_Leonard's own goal on "small independent countries" - the highlight of FMQs this week. But he managed - …
