Three things about the forthcoming Scottish referendum seem wrong to me. First, what about the immense worldwide Scottish diaspora? Don’t they all deserve a vote, too? Second, if the UK is the real issue, why don’t we English (and Welsh and Irish) get to vote too? Third, the most obvious option, DevoMax, the most sensible way to go forward, will not appear on the ballot paper. So how much attention does this exercise deserve? Not much, I think.
