    Harry,

    Ah let’s see, the ability to vote in our own Government, who can then work as an equal partner with our neighbours. Sounds about right to be me and a damn sight better than being out voted 10 to 1 and having no seat at any table – “Aye no worries lads we will take care of everything for you, just remember you are too wee, too poor and too stupid to manage it on your own.”

  2. Comment on Opening shots muffled in UK government’s fightback against Scottish independence campaign

    Utter drivel published by the UK Government yesterday. It was sobering to read (point 35) that the UK Government is happy to make the suggestion that Scotland ceased to exist in 1707 having being incorporated into England. There you have it, there is no Union or partnership, we are simply a region of England. What do all the Scottish (?!?) Unionist have to say about that? At last we know now, as everybody else in the world has always assumed, that Britain == England and England == Britain. One thing for sure is I bet BBC Scotland won’t be reporting this line.

    It has been suggested that the British are happy to undermine the concept of Union in order to ensure that they are considered a continuation state and thus preserve their precious seat on the UN security council in the event of YES. So much for Cameron showing respect for ‘Scotchland’. Still if they want to push the line that Scotland shall be a new state, they it is is a bit ironic to demand that we take some of their debt with us.
