Have adjusted a quote by an Irish patriot to suit today’s result in Scotland
Reflect on the results of the Scottish referendum
“The people who voted No in the referendum, are not against Independence on its merits, but are in favour of No because they fear what is to happen if independence be accepted.
That is not the will of the people, that is the fear of the people.”
– Liam Mellowes TD, 1922
Talking about his aims as an Irish Republican he also said
“This fight has been for something more than the fleshpots of Empire”.
Updated to 2014’s terminology wasn’t this what the YES campaign wanted?
