Magali L. & Maud T.'s curator insight, April 9, 8:22 AM

Alex Salmond défend l'intérêt d'une Ecosse indépendante, en s'opposant ainsi aux aspirations d'Alistair Darling, qui souhaite perpétuer l'union entre Royaume-Uni et Ecosse. Tandis que ce dernier affirme en effet que cette union est la garantie de la force, la sécurité et la stabilité de l'Ecosse, Alex Salmond, lui, pense que l'Ecosse n'a pas besoin du Royaume-Uni pour subsister : la force des idées et l'ambition d'un pays sont plus influentes que son armée, sa population, et son territoire... Ce point de vue paraît relativement utopique, et montre qu'Alex Salmond tente à tout prix de défendre sa position, malgré le poids des arguments d'Alistair Darling et de David Cameron.
