At least, she won't be for long. It will be the shortest lived independence since records began.
Her "independence" is a misnomer. A lie. A deceit. A fraud. A scam.
Even now, while the SNP lock horns with any dissenters, they are negotiating with the EU. If they get their timing right, on the same night they celebrate independence, they will also celebrate their entry into the Stupid Club.
So much for reclaiming the nation, eh? So much for ridding themselves of those bastards south of the border.
Hear this Nats, and hear it well: between now and the referendum, I will devote untold energy towards telling everyone I know, and everyone I don't know, that the referendum is the worst idea ever. Who, in their right minds, gives up one master for another and declares her people free?
No-one, that's who.
Scratch that. Ireland did. Yesterday, Croatia did. Given the chance, Turkey would. The EU really ought to be renamed the Stupid Club. It is jammed with countries that couldn't wait to gain new found sovereignty, for the first time ever in some cases, only to give it away again.
Scotland will make that mistake. They will ignore the fact that Ireland is broke, and broken. Her people are now enslaved to the EU. So is the rest of the UK but there is a glimmer of hope in the shape of UKIP.
If Scotland were truly seeking independence, I would support the campaign with all my heart. This country has been good for me and mine. I have been in steady work here since 1989 and the Oil & Gas Industry has provided well for us. My boys got a great education and on the rare occasions we have needed it, the NHS has taken care of us. Our money is spent, whenever possible, in local shops, on local tradespeople, and on local attractions (the tourist stuff as well as restaurants) so I can honestly say it has been a two-way street.
However, I will NOT stay in Scotland if, post-referendum/independence, I end up on my knees with the other 5.2 million citizens in thrall to the EU. I will sell up, and I will head south. Hell, who knows? I may move out of the UK altogether, if Cameron and his Familiars don't get a grip and get us out.
The Nats, those same Nats who told me time after time "Wait and see. Joining the EU is not a given. One step at a time, eh?" were living in cloud cuckoo land. Were they conned as well? Were they lying to me?
Guess what, lads and lassies? Independence and joining the EU are one and the same now.
And I promise to do everything I can to dissuade people from ticking the "yes" box.
If you have any sense you will all do exactly the same.
You may well think of Westminster as the frying pan but believe me, the EU is the fire. It is indiscriminate: it burns everybody.
Mark my words now.
