1707 historian backs Scottish independence

Following in the footsteps of fellow historian Niall Ferguson, Michael Fry has become the latest Scottish unionist to see the light:

I’ve changed my mind. I believe in an independent Scotland and I will
do what I can to bring it about — although I have enough intellectual
scruples to see it won’t be easy. My change of heart has been brought
on by devolution. It has proved completely hopeless, if anything making
Scotland a worse rather than a better country, so I think we have to do
something different. We cannot go back, so we have to go forward. (Sunday Times)

Fry enlarges on the theme in an interview with Freedom and Whiskey.
