GLASGOW — For Scots of my generation — millennial and younger — the belief that Scotland would be better off running its own affairs, free from the strictures of Westminster, is almost axiomatic. From the Iraq war to Brexit, the financial crash to austerity, Britain feels trapped in a spiral of crisis and decline. According to a September analysis of recent polls, more than 70 percent of Scots under the age of 35 think Scotland should abandon the United Kingdom. And the abrasive right-wing premiership of Boris Johnson, increasingly mired in accusations of cronyism and sleaze , has only strengthened that view. An election this week should show which side has the wind at its back.
If I were a Scot, I would vote for independence tomorrow. The supreme civil right is that to self-government, and the inferior tier of a federation is entitled to claim it, not the superior one to permit. Scotland has now voted itself a separatist Scottish National party local government unchallenged for 12 years. That is exactly what Cummings and Johnson are doing. They are choosing to ignore the Brexit referendum pledge of frictionless trade, and Johnson is refusing to allow Sturgeon a referendum on independence.
