The #indyref ruined my holiday

We went to Basel for a few days and, of course, all signs pointed to a strained comparison with Scotland and the rest of the UK. It is striking just how natural it is to interact regularly with ‘foreigners’ (a term you often hear, to describe what residents if Scotland will be to the rest of the UK): loads of people speak German, French and English fluently; you can use the Euro or Swiss Francs quite the thing; and, when you cross national borders, no one makes a big deal out of it.
