The SNP is conceeding that Scotland is not owned by the "Scottish people"

An important concession has gone unnoticed in all the election guff about the SNP:  http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2015/may/04/nicola-sturgeon-questions-legitimacy-of-uk-government-without-scottish-mps

By taking their seats at Westminster and insisting on their "legitimacy" the SNP is conceding that Scotland is not owned by the "Scottish people" (however you are defining that).  We all own ALL of the United Kingdom collectively.  Scotland is as much my country as it is hers.

And I will never agree to any part of my country being hived off to a special interest group that thinks it can profit one group of British people at the expense of another group.
