Will self-determination be taken to the logical conclusion of allowing the Orkney and Shetland islanders to vote separately on what part of the Union, if any, they want to be a part of?
If the article in today's Torygraph is to be believed, they do not want to be governed by Edinburgh. They prefer either (1) the Union or (2) independence themselves. At the very least, they want to extend Salmond's principles further along the curve to say that they should have a much greater portion of oil and gas revenues for themselves.
Why should Salmond be the only politician who is able to use oil wealth to argue for self-determination?
Or maybe, they should rejoin Norway (based on the same historical arguments put forward by the SNP) and they could have the revenue!!
Interesting irony to all of this!!
