It reminds me of many years ago when we got involved with our village amateur football team more than half way through a season and at the annual awards we were awarded the Best Behaviour Trophy. The chairman, who shall remain nameless, said “Well that’s the last [expletive] time we’ll win that.” He was correct but we did go on to win many other cups and awards at league and district level as well as getting to the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

All power to your elbow Stephen, you’ll get us our independence, even if it’s only because of Westminster’s desire to remove that thorn (or jaggy thistle) from its flesh.
