The fundamental point brought out in that piece is that it is a sad error to believe that Yes spoke for Scotland, while No did not.

The majority who rejected independence did so because they believe that union is best for Scotland. They were speaking for Scotland, as they would in any future vote on the same subject.

That subsequent events, and the collapse of the oil price, have proved them absolutely right is a matter of record. Scotland is now infinitely better off than it would have been by this time if a majority had voted Yes, let alone by the time separation would have been completed, and anyone has to be peculiarly thick-headed not to understand that.

We should not pay much serious attention to trolls like Perthy here.
