I am an excluded scientist, my original degree was in Computer Science but I wanted to get a second degree in something to do with bio-medical science, but I have been excluded from university and have spent most of my life on the dole.
I have also suffered torture and imprisonment with threats of being sectioned in a mental hospital by officers of the UK state, so my bitterness runs deep and perhaps explains why my republicanism is quite as ferocious as it is. I think the Russians and the French treated their monarchies about right.
Unlike the SNP therefore, I support genuine Scottish independence which could only be defended by a Scottish republic and a Scottish president. On the other hand I would support a British republican parliament and British president as well that should be agreed and elected for controlling certain functions like British nuclear weapons which Scotland is too small to have its own version of.

My country is not the "UK".
I am a republican so I don't agree with the UK, it being a kingdom and all.
I don't mind flying the Union Flag as a traditional symbol of British nationality (I consider myself to have dual nationality, (at least 2 nationalities for now - perhaps more in due course), Scottish and British, but I am not a unionist in the sense that I do not support the UK, THE union of parliaments as defined by the original treaty of union, nor do I support the union of the crowns, unlike the unionist SNP under Queen Elizabeth loyalists like Salmond.
