Berwick Would be “Jewel in the Crown of Scotland”

According to the man who led the pro-Scottish vote campaign in a local poll about a certain MSP’s plans for Berwick to “return to the fold” in Scotland. I wonder what Edinburgh and Glasgow would think about that! Berwick changed hands 13 times apparently in the middle ages, but has been in England since 1482. While I of course support the democratic right of Berwickians to choose their national status, it is sad that these seems to be happening, not because they feel historically Scottish, but because they can see what us English Nationalists have been saying for a long time. With no tuition fees, free prescriptions and free care for the elderly, Scotland is getting a better deal out of the Union than England.
