In the event Scotland goes independent, they’ll still consider the Queen head of state, much like the Australians and other former colonies. But what might an independent...
Last month we started writing about the mounting support for Scottish independence. Depending on which poll you read and who you listen to, an independent Scotland is either imminent or a pipe dream.

Here are front pages from British newspapers today regarding the machete terror attack by two Islamic terrorists in London.
It will be easy — and likely correct — to assert that this is another Islamic terrorist attack.
But I think it is more than that.
