Scotland to become independent in March 2016 if referendum passes

Recommended Posts

I made holidays in Bonny Scotland in 1988 and 1991.
And im a bit proud to say, i drank some pints and whiskies in the home Pub of the famous band Nazareth. Many golden Albums on the walls of the Pub. Unfortunately, the band was in Spain on tour then, said the neice of the Drummer (R.I.P.) to me. Anyway, my friend and I won the Boccia game in the backyard of the Pub. I like Bonny Scotland.

According to the "Yes" campaigners, Scotland enjoys higher GDP than our compatriots South of the Tweed, so if it's not broke, why fix it? I know we feel hard done by, and disadvantaged, but that is because we are miserable whinging Scotch gits, and we should be proud of it. That doesn't mean we should not continue to look after our less fortunate English brothers.

Do you think Scotland would prosper on its own?

Yes. Perhaps even more than we do just now. But it's national pride that would drive me to vote No, were I eligible to vote, not greed.

If the Scottish government were to say that they would halve the number of bureaucrats, slash red tape, and increase opportunity, then after a couple of years of seeing those words translated into action, I might vote Yes. But what I have seen is an increase in pettifogging, parochial bureaucracy, bumbling incompetence in managing major projects.

Get Salmond and his bunch gone. It'll have a real chance then.

I'm sure we could dredge up worse from somewhere. The fact is that no Scot worth his salt will stay in his home country, for two reasons:

1) so that he has somewhere nice to go to on his holidays

2) because elsewhere his quality shines out and he stands head and shoulders above those around him.

95% of Scots think their country is the best in the world, and 15% would be willing to live there, if they had to.

If Scotland becomes independent, what happens to Balmoral?

Well, some suggestions:

1. Turn it into a national park and Centre for the Environment.

2. It could become Scotland's version of Chequers. On second thoughts the cost would be unjustifiable.

3. Make it totally secure and keep the entire Royal family and all their hangers on under permanent house arrest, provided of course that it was all funded by Westminster.

Any other suggestions?

It needs to be a cash cow, so high end holiday destination. It would be a big earner.

Oh yes, I like it! Plenty of top-class Scottish huntin', shootin' and fishin' I believe. Perhaps the Royal family might even be 'game' for it!

Where's theblether when Scottish independence is under discussion ? Last time it came up it didn't end happily wink.png

I'm sure he'll be along shortly.

It's not like my old mukka, Dr Evil, to miss this opportunity. He must be reading all 670 pages of the White Paper to try and find something positive to post about...

Some of us south of the Tweed still count as Scottish residents I'll have you know! Or does the White Paper redraw the Scottish boundaries too, in an attempt to gerrymander out opponents of independence?

All the "jocks" I know, and I know quite a few, are disturbingly intelligent and hard working folks. Really are top drawer.

I honestly think Scotland would make a good go of it.

Quite agree, but aren't they the ones who have left Scotland? What does that leave behind?

We should move the Tweed.
