I’ve written political columns for more than forty years, many – more indeed than I care to think – about Scottish devolution and independence. I argued against devolution in the Eighties and Nineties, and voted “no” in the 1997 referendum. Since then I’ve argued against independence, and voted “no” in the 2014 referendum. Now I wonder if it was all a waste of time and energy.
