I would say though, if the above is what folks in England think, then it shows just how politically apart Scotland and England have become and adds weight to the separation argument.
I'm sure any separation could be amicable if there is a will, it is a small island after all.
All the best.
It isn't that there is a huge political divide - there isn't as the 2019 GE shows - but that the constant media attention given to Sturgeon combined with a media/ social media pro-SNP/ anti-England assault are swaying opinion.
It is a deliberate tactic, of that I am certain.
For instance why were Sturgeon's daily briefings regularly shown on English TV in the first place?
Even Willie Rennie recently had to tell Sturgeon to stop the "anti-English rhetoric" which her appearances often have, at some times more blatantly than others.
Small wonder that so many English see Sturgeon as an evil for encouraging a disagreeable split - and equally small wonder that these would welcome that since there is a weight of evidence to suggest considerable financial benefit in the process.
But as earlier, that is what some devious pro-SNP Scots are angling for.
As you say though, not that this is likely to change your mind any more than you are likely to change mine or anybody else's.
FYI as a Scot I would be in favour of an independent Scotland if it were at all practicable ........... but nothing I have ever seen suggests that to be possible.
Just as no amicable split could ever be possible with the duplicitous SNP at the helm.
