Quote of the day 29th June 2021

“It blows my mind! How can nationalism be progressive?

“All across Europe we’ve got the rise of these small minded parochial xenophobic nationalism. You’re seeing it across Hungary, Poland. You saw it in England with the BNP.

“And now it’s happening in Scotland with the SNP but for some reason Scottish nationalism is seen as woke and progressive which it isn’t.

“It’s a horrible small minded ‘oh we are the best’, and hating on your neighbours, hating on the English.

“It’s a really toxic horrible self-defeating narrative."

(Leo Kearse, a Scottish comedian, commenting on Scottish nationalism.)
