Let’s be a normal country. Let’s not ask. Sign the Edinburgh Proclamation

Scottish Self-Determination


The right of a people to self-determination is a cardinal principle in modern international law. The UN’s Charter states that, ..peoples, based on respect for the principle of equal rights and fair equality of opportunity, have the right to freely choose their sovereignty and international political status with no interference.

That’s pretty clear, isn’t it? So why is it that Scotland, seemingly of all the countries that exist and have ever existed, has to ask? And ask the British state of all states, which is naturally going to say No, No, No. Why would it say anything else?

So this is a website about not asking. We don’t have to ask because the Scottish people are sovereign. Which means that we don’t have to ask anyone or anything a damn thing. But we do. All the time. And that’s got to stop. Because we don’t need to ask.

Don’t ask. Just do.

No, the website’s not finished and I doubt it will ever be ‘finished’. And yes, I know, there’s not much content on it yet and what there is seems to repeat itself. But wait a wee bit. There will be.

But it’s just me doing it so far, and there’s a huge amount of stuff to write that you should read if ever you too have asked yourself questions like…. How is it that we have to ask? Thought we were in a Union?

And check out two other sources that are also about not asking. One is the Scottish Liberation Movement that’s going to be taking the UK to the UN and forcing them to admit that they’re keeping Scotland in a constitutional straitjacket.

The other is the Stirling Directive, which is an instruction to the Scottish Government to a) tell Westminster that it doesn’t hold sovereignty over Scotland and b) hold a referendum on independence, a referendum that’s under our control.

No. More. Asking.

That’s it for now. If you’d like to contribute – that’s content, not money 🙂 – to endtheunion.scot, drop me an email.
