Brittany Looks To Scottish Referendum Vote

As Scotland moves ever closer towards the referendum on Scottish independence, it is not only the people of Cornwall and Wales who are looking with interest at the outcome. Breton’s are also looking at how they can move towards such a vote. Brittany with its deeply rooted culture, language and identity needs the opportunity to have its say on Breton independence. The issue is also heightened by the coming 2014 referendum on independence for Catalonia. Many in Brittany also look at smaller Celtic nations such as the Isle of Man, which clearly benefits from having autonomy and managing their own affairs. Their example dismisses those who are foolish enough to argue that countries like Brittany, Cornwall and Wales are too small for self-rule.
