Many of us who are voting Yes in this referendum are English like myself. We're maybe a minority of the English voters but we still count. The idea that just because of my political views I am inherently anti-English is frankly insulting and anybody who suggests we are anti-English deserves to be named and shamed.
Therefore, I have compiled a list of unionists who have referred to the SNP or supporters of independence in general as anti-English, Anglophobic or racist or used similar defamatory terms to describe them. It will be updated every time somebody makes an offending comment.
So in no particular order, here is the Wall of Shame:
Donald Findlay QC
K the Unionist
The Orange Torch
For the sake of integrity this wall can only include people who have been explicit in their branding of supporters of independence as anti-English or such-like. People who have implied that to support independence is to be anti-English but haven't said so explicitly aren't included and it is with some regret. Douglas Alexander may be considered one of them having delivered no fewer than three or four speeches over the past year talking about anyone who supports independence as wanting to walk away from friends and family in the rest of the UK. You can read a selection his recent speeches, here, here, and here. Read them and decide for yourself if they constitute a smearing of supporters of independence as anti-English as I personally believe they do.
Some people who have in the past described pro-independence people as anti-English are forgiven, at least for the time-being, including Billy Connelly not because I like him as a comedian (he's an absolute legend of course!) but because he has recently chosen to keep himself out of the debate and not judge. Andrew Marr is exempt as he was referring to the existence of anti-Englishness in Scotland which I don't doubt is still a problem in some places though I would question his wisdom in juxtaposing it with mention of the origins of the SNP.
Comments are welcome and encouraged especially if you can find more people who share the attitude of the idiots listed above.
