The world's largest tapestry is to be created depicting Scottish history culminating in the opening of the Scottish Parliament. Doubtless this will depict many battles fought with the English but I doubt that it will include the most significant event of all. I refer to the Darien Venture, which resulted in Scotland's bankruptcy and led to the Scots agreeing to the Union of Parliaments in return for a sum, known as The Equivalent, of £398,000 being paid to the Scots.
Should the Scots decide that they wish to be independent, I feel sure that with their renowned integrity, sense of fair play and generosity they will wish to repay this to the English. At a compound interest rate of 5% this comes to a mere £1.7 trillion. I am sure that the Englis would accept a Scottish gilt with, say, 5% coupon in perpetuity.
