A Safe Distance?

It's often said that distance lends enchantment to the view.

I wonder if that's the reason why The Independent (sic), whose every editorial, column and letters pages were full of vicious reactionary bile against the very idea of the people of Scotland determining their own destiny, should today - with presumably its seal of approval - publish an open letter from a number of notable Catalans calling for their own nation to do precisely that?

Or is it just the same old Brit liberal Unionist hypocrisy once more?
