A democratically-minded person should support the view that the people of Scotland should get the government they feel they deserve. And in this sense, the independence referendum is a red herring. The (only) question to be put on the 18th is “Should Scotland be an independent country?”, but “Is the United Kingdom in need of constitutional reform?” would be more appropriate - not least because the disillusionment with Westminster, mainstream Establishment politics is by no means limited to Scotland.
