Media Watch: Alasdair Gray on Independence

Alasdair Gray, the Scottish writer and artist, on Scottish Independence:

“I want Scottish independence.

“Since I think we are going to get more of it, I think it is time to stop being narrowly nationalistic or parochial because I think the more small nations there are the better state the world will be in.

“Small independent nations are necessary for a better world. America and China, with the Westminster government backing America up to the hilt, are shaping the world we live in but I don’t like the shape it is getting into nowadays.

“I think Scottish independence will be better for the world, not just Scotland.”
