Dear Dan Snow & other signaturies of letter ref Sottish independence referendum,
Thank you for your contribution to the independance debate, and for voicing your personal opinions on the issue, it is always interesting to hear the opinions of others.
I understand your position however I have to ask would you advice your reletives or friends to remain in a bad marrage in which they were victims of domestic abuse.
I am sure you are aware that domestic abuse is not just a matter of physical violence but can involve mental, financial & indeed other issues that come under the remit of social abuse, and i am afraid my personal opinion, reached after exstensive independent research of the historical & political issues involved in the political marrage of Scotland to the rest of the UK has proven one of an abusive & more weighty partner oppressing and abusing the smaller within the relationship by financial & ecconomic abuses, this is not a relationship I personally wish to continue with, i STRONGLY feel that a amicable divorce is in the best interest of Scotland & will be more beneficial to the children which will give them a more secure & healthy ballanced future to flourish in.
I am sure you will appriciate that although divorce can pose difficult for friends and relitives when it comes to perceptions of taking sides, but I see absolutly no reason why we can not all remain friends and continue to get on sociably & indeed work together in a more ballanced and fair way that does not see Scotland treated as the poor relitive or underdog when it deserves to be treated as an equal with the ability to stand strongly & independencly making its own desisions in regard of its future as oppossed to being subject of desisions & governance by a dominent partner who evidance reflects has not always worked in the best interest of Scotlands citezens.
