JK Rowling Moans About, “Yes” Campaigners

JK Rowling Moans About, “Yes” Campaigners

In her explanatory letter to the Public Rowling predicted that some pro-independence campaigners would discount her views because she was born and raised in England. She likened that stance to the obsession with pure wizard blood of the villainous characters in her magical saga. “When people try to make this debate about the purity of your lineage, things start getting a little Death Eaterish for my taste,” “you need to know that there is going to be a referendum on 18th September on whether or not Scotland should leave the United Kingdom. If you’re only vaguely interested, or pressed for time, there’s further mention of Death Eaters later in my letter”

It must be argued, with good reason, that Rowling invited attacks on herself, since it was she who first gave mention to “Death Eaters”. Indeed she made great effort. She wrote; “when people try to make this debate about the purity of your lineage, things start getting a little Death Eaterish for my taste.” I wonder what moved her to invite negative comment about her lineage, since it was a subject given no coverage in the debate. Indeed a multitude of expats, from many countries living in Scotland, have expressed strong opinion supporting views totally contrary to those of JK Rowling. http://www.jkrowling.com/en_GB/news-events
