I was born in Scotland but live in Ireland. When the Moroccan taxi driver found out my nationality he asked, ‘Why did Scotland not vote to break free from England when they had the opportunity?’ He was totally bewildered as I am about the result.
As a Scot living in another country I don’t believe I should have had the right to vote. But should English people who have worked in Scotland have the right to vote if they have worked in Scotland for a twelve month period?
The arguments as to the rights and wrongs of the result will raise voices and blood pressure for years to come.
Was it a missed opportunity or an own goal?
