    Well, that’s only right and proper. After all, famous Scot James Boswell campaigned for Corsican independence.

    Lovely – good to see our cause championed from afar.

    Also: JJ Biceps – what a name.

    It makes you feel so proud to see so many people wanting Scotland succeed in her own right and take her place in the word as a free and proud nation. And when the people of our country say no
    we will have the power to follow it through.
