Why break us apart?

First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond.

I am at a loss as to why Alex Salmond is attempting to break a union that has successfully managed to remain a powerful union. We have fought two world wars together, neither of which we could have managed alone as independent nations.

All my ancestors are Scots, moreover my close family are Scots. We are now faced with the challenge of multi-nationalism, and no matter how we try, it is a challenge.

I am English by birth but I am British. I am proud to be so. I repeat the question; why is Alex Salmond attempting to change all of this?

I am particularly interested in the views of Scottish residents of Lancaster.
