I am a pretty hardcore Yoon, so obv I would die in a ditch to prevent it, but I have an alter ego, well several, but one in particular who thinks ....that would be interesting.
I am pretty well set up for life, largely because I have downgraded my goals I admit, but I own my house, my wife and I still have pensions we have yet to touch, my daughters are sort of set up, or will be within two years, at least to the point where I can wash my hands and say that if they fail, it is down to them, not me. D1 needs to fail a second degree from third year, D2 needs a bad marriage and divorce to not own outright by 40. I think I am in a good place.
If Scotland was to win back its Freedum, I could sit back and enjoy either being proved correct and watch our society and economy go down the pan, Capital flight, English flight, youth flight, censorship, the collapse of public services, the poor suffering, a welcome property cash (but no benefits from it) and all the joyous farce that would follow. I might stand for the council again as a Whig under the slogan "you got what you deserved". And I won't even be earning enough that they can really tax me. Or I might be proved wrong and watch my nation flourish and such is the oddities of patriotism that I would embrace it. It really is a no-lose situation if you are a sixty-year-old homeowning couple with two pension pots plus state pensions (I think we have six actually, but some need to be consolidated) and don't care about others having a hard time
