The Netherlands and Spain, whose empires disappeared as Britain's has done, have been resurrected as part of a greater European whole, but Britain's future will become that of a small offshore island. America does not want Britain as the 51st state.
But if this happens, I hope, speaking as a Scotsman, than an independent Scotland will become again the European nation it was before 1603 and 1707.
