How would I rate T M Devine at anything other than five stars Apparently he s been knighted for services to Scottish history but when writing about him here it seems appropriate just to call him T M Devine or Tom Devine He is so vastly above me in terms of knowledge and ability that he might as well inhabit another world but there is absolutely no pretension about his writing so that I had the bold feeling that if he were beside me we could chat freely There is a recognition of the importance of individual thinking in his book that would have made him one of the foremost of the Enlightenment writers there is a respect for different opinions that makes him someone we need to read right now with open minds and daring to remove ourselves from political hype from the acuisition of power by manipulation from all that stinks of corruption and bigotry in the circles of power as we know them Without any descent into didacticism he reuires us to stand up and be counted now when it counts for our nation the nation of ScotlandI felt from the opening of this book that his own view was towards what is called devo max devolution maximus or full fiscal autonomy but if it had to be independence or union which was the case then he would be tempted towards independence I ve just looked up online whether he actually stated his own view anywhere I told you I m ignorant and he decided in the fortnight before the Scottish Independence Referendum that he would vote Yes He came to regard devo max as a sticking plaster In his book of course he is not partial but is a consummate historian in every sense He begins with The Context of Union The Union of England and Scotland in 1707 was a marriage of convenience founded on pragmatism expediency competing national patriotisms and realpolitik Love and friendship for the other were entirely notable by their absence during the negotiations By and large this appears to have been the situation ever since I ve always been aware of this having grown up in the Highlands but Tom Devine helped me see the bigger picture I would have assumed for instance that handing over the entire administration of Scotland in the eighteenth century to the Earl of Islay a Campbell a clan which was notorious at the time due to the part it played in the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 6 would have been A Bad Thing especially as Islay s mission to deliver political stability in Scotland relied upon the lion s share of patronage and the authority to govern north of the border In fact Scotland benefitted enormously from this arrangement economically and administratively and Scotland s semi independent status was assured This was only the precursor to long standing economic advantages delivered to Scotland in the context of Union Tom Devine demonstrates that in the Independence Referendum in 2014 much of the victorious No vote came from older voters who were concerned about the future economy of an independent Scotland anxieties which the Scottish National Party had failed to allay as they could not provide answers With hindsight the SNP muffed their chance The author points out that the Labour party in enabling a Scottish Assembly in 1995 committed political suicide in Scotland by paving the way for the SNP s rise He is careful however to analyse the kind of support given to the SNP which was not all about independence but was partly about voting for a party that would keep Scotland s interests high on the agenda of the Westminster Government and govern Scotland to the tune of a Scottish not an English voice I found the chapter on Britishness 1939 60 uite moving Having been brought up in Wales as a child and Scotland from the age of twelve I feel half Welsh half Scots and I was educated during a period when there was a strong sense of national pride in having come through two world wars and defeated the evil of Hitler The chapter ends The 1950 s was a decade of considerable material satisfaction for the majority and a time of dominant Britishness that Scots seemed able to comfortably combine with their own sense of national identity Towards the end of the book the author makes a strong case for this no longer being true which appears to be linked to the demise of the Labour Party in Scotland The transformation of old Labour to New Labour in the 1990 s did not appeal to the party s traditional supporters in Scotland Similar evidence covering the period 1997 to 2001 demonstrated declining support for the proposition that New Labour supported class and trade union interests but rising agreement for the view that that it primarily looked after business interests and so on Jack McConnell then First Minister fatally failed to separate Scottish Labour s voice from the policies of the New Labour leadership in London which did not appeal to Scottish voters The last chapter analyses the attitude of David Cameron then Prime Minister immediately following the referendum As far as my personal opinion goes post Europe referendum Cameron messed up big time in ways than one and should have attempted to make amends rather than abandoning the UK to its fate and writing his memoirs However that s all now and this was pre Europe Referendum TM Devine simply uotes a journalist who in the wake of the Independence Referendum points out that Cameron s English Votes for English Laws initiative EVEL was taking refuge for short term party political gain in crude and petty nationalism He also uotes the former leader of the Liberal Democrats Paddy Ashdown who accused David Cameron of making one of the most irresponsible speeches ever made by a Prime Minister I have just discovered that he allegedly tried to enlist the ueen s support for the Union by asking her to raise an eyebrow Yet even this pales compared to what Tom Devine uotes from our current Prime Minister Boris Johnson then Mayor of London who joked merrily about Jockalypse if Labour were ever to enter government with nationalist support No wonder they ve been keeping him in the cupboard during this current election campaignThanks Tom I voted No last time but will vote Yes next time Your book did it for me Post

Devine Ç 8 READ & DOWNLOAD Ody uestioned the union which joined them But as Devine makes clear it has for the most part been a relationship based on consent not force on mutual advantage rather than antagonism and it has always held the possibility of a political parting of the waysWith the United Kingdom under a level of scrutiny unmatched since the eighteenth century Independence or Union is the essential guide. Masterly overview of the history of the union by Scotland s premier historian Showing how the mismanagement of the Union s ability to combine collective progress by the four nations with a keen sense of Scottish patriotism led to the demise of the Scottish Unionists Then the centralising bias of Labour led them to neglect the Scottish people probably no than other heartlands in South Wales and the North of England but neglect all the same in favour of internal division and the politics of noble gestureThe SNP have filled this space as they evolved from protest group to a party of government As Scots look for the ability to run their own affairs as they did in the Victorian era can the Conservatives and the civil service unwind their lust to control everything from Westminster and save the Union or will the SNP persuade Scots that independence in Europe is practicable Margaret Thatcher s strident Southern English nationalism and disdain for the politics that made the Union work still lies at the heart of the debate over the survival of the three centuries of partnership
