THERE IS NO BRITAIN:

Will the UK break up under the Tories? (James Macintyre, 28 March 2010, New Statesman)

I have long feared that the break-up of the UK -- made more likely by devolution -- will be completed by David Cameron's Tories if they win the election in May. Why? Because their strategists know that this party, which "won" England in 2005, is increasingly an English party which has given up on Scotland, where it is pretty exclusively loathed (a Scottish Tory source tells me that Cameron and George Osborne are not even much liked by Scottish Tories north of the border).

The Scots think they're a nation, so they are.
