It’s in a corridor and no Saltire only Stars and Stripes in view.

I love the way this event unites the haters 😂
I know, it really defies belief. Fuksake, Pelosi is one of the most powerful people in the Western World.
 
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
Looks like Pelosi met Sturgeon in the back lobby of the Capitol... not worth the cleaning of an office it seems.

Jesus, you lot are impossible.
 
In reply to @MarcoGBiagi
Unlike you, Marco, I have had the honour of discussing this with MacCormick!
And I discuss the distinction in my column in tomorrow's paper.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
I think you're doing a lot of reaching (projecting?) into heads when you could be developing an interesting argument about how out-of-date the dichotomy is and developing a novel, modern version.
Replying to @MarcoGBiagi

In reply to @KennyFarq
Does the same distinction (or lack of) apply equally to unionism? Its politician adherents appear to be existentialists, but there are enough utilitarians (on either side) among the electorate to mean that a future referendum could go either way. Sadly we can’t ask Neil!
The answer to your question is yes, there can be existential and utilitarian unionists. See tomorrow's column for an explanation!

No rude cave references this time I hope…
Replying to @ChrisMcEleny
It's already filed, otherwise I would have put one in..
 
In reply to @MarcoGBiagi
It's not the certainty, it's what motivates the certainty.
If there are no economic, political, social or security factors so potentially disastrous that might persuade you independence was unwise, then your nationalism is existential.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
No one argues the existentialist argument from that text. You seem to be using level of certainty as the distinction, but that is not a factor mentioned in your screenshot. It might be an interesting updating, but it is not how MacCormick defines existentialist nationalism.

Esmond Wright - there's a name from the past, the last person to win a seat for the Conservatives at a Scottish Westminster by-election, in Glasgow Pollok no less. (I campaigned for George Leslie, who split the Labour vote, allowing Wright to beat Dick Douglas (remember him?)...
I remember George well. Old school SNP!
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
So that's the origin of that dichotomy, I never knew the actual source. Interesting that it's not a real dichotomy. It feels more like a drive-by triangulation. I'll have to get my hands on a copy.
Replying to @MarcoGBiagi
Much more of a 20th century thing (especially pre-devo) than a 21st century thing. Now pretty much all you Nats are existentialist nationalists.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
Pelosi's office literally described it as a 'photo opportunity'. Diplomatic coup it was not. speaker.gov/newsroom/51622…
Replying to @Scotsmistt
Nonsense. Watch the video of the Speaker's comments.
 
A substantial diplomatic coup, this, and all the better for being organised outwith the usual Tartan Day folderols.
Replying to @KennyFarq
Although I should really point out that Henry McLeish was received by the president at the White House.

As Speaker of the House, it was my official honor to welcome the First Minister of Scotland, @NicolaSturgeon, to the United States Capitol. I look forward to continuing our shared work on COVID-19, the climate crisis and so many other issues. pic.twitter.com/v0rnvTQY6r

I got a speeding ticket in Naples. I consider it to be the zenith of my driving career.

Now that is an achievement.

Some belters there. You've got a lucky habit of pressing the shutter button at precisely the right moment 😉

What were your food highlights then?
Replying to @iaindocherty
Didnae really do my usual gastro thing and we mainly ate at random places along the way, but a slow-cooked octopus ragu made by our landlady on the final night and served on the roof terrace was exceptional.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
I've not been there but it looks very colourful. Like a super-size Tobermory.
Replying to @DaniGaravelli1
Aye, but with better food and more sunshine!

In reply to @KennyFarq
Perhaps. The point, though, surely, is that she would consider herself a "utilitarian" Nat. Which is just Sunday clothes for "existential" ones.
Replying to @alexmassie
Agreed. It's a circular argument: "I'm a utilitarian nationalist because I cannot conceive of a independent Scotland in which Scotland could be in any way worse off."
 
Writing my column for The Times I reach, not for the first time, for Neil MacCormick’s 1970 essay on the different kinds of nationalism. Its clarity rings down the years. pic.twitter.com/UCvCJaQ3AR

Inadvertent glimpse of WFH slippers there.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
It's neat but it's also bollocks. Ask the first minister if there are circumstances in which she would *not* favour independence and she would, if she was being honest, have to answer "No".
Replying to @alexmassie
Because she, like almost all members of the SNP these days, is an existential nationalist. The same is not true, however, of all SNP voters, which is why the distinction is still useful, as well as neat.

Did you get to Ischia?
Replying to @DaniGaravelli1
Majority decision was to go to Procida instead, which was beautiful and a relaxing break from the chaos of the city.

Yours are fab! Did you spot the amazing Umbrella shop?

I went there for our honeymoon and stayed in the Spanish Quarter where it was non-stop kids buzzing about on scooters. But on the other hand, pizza for breakfast.
Replying to @simonloverules
Breakfast of champions.
 
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
looks like everyone was in a cafe or on a scooter going to a cafe

These are great! There's nowhere quite like it, and you've captured the feeling brilliantly
 
I was in Naples for a few days and took some pictures.

And, yes, those girls were actually driving that scooter, they weren't just posing on it.

Actually maybe that is not a good form of words from me there but they do find some fascinating characters
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
And had you missed any good ones?
Replying to @obituarywriter
A bumper crop. I particularly like a good Watergate obit.
 
Back from holiday and first thing I do is check if I’ve missed any good obits.

Replying to @AngusRobertson
So very sorry to hear this, Angus, and so soon after your dad.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
It’s really not aimed precisely at UK. Certainly it needn’t be excluded but UK has massively reduced leverage. And is consistently untrustworthy. EU has moved on. UK Govt hasn’t. Should Scotland have its chance to decide its future, I hope it will be thru this new lens.
UK defence and intelligence capability is essential to any European security policy if US goes Trumpy, or just Trump redux.
