          Anyway George, well done for telling Salmond where he can get off over the poond. He’s getting a pasting in the comments sections of the Scottish press today. The only case left for the ‘Yes’ campaign is the emotional one.


          • Ma­q­bo­­ul says:

            Maybe that’s precisely what he wants.


          • Clint Osborne says:

            That’s as may be, but at least the campaign has at last got to the nub of the matter.

            There is a no guaranteed, no-risk economic el-dorado waiting for an independent Scotland. Scotland will have to stand on its own two feet in a risky world.

            Scots are a well educated people and are capable of running a sophisticated economy, but they will have to do so with a neighbour to the south who they have been pissing off for quite some time, whether they have meant to do that or not. An England free of Scotland will be able to take atotally different course than the one it has been contrained to accept with Scotland aboard. Many English feel that without the Scots their nation will finally be allowed to go in a better direction for them.

            Will the Scots do as well if they go it alone? Maybe the Scots will be lucky if they do. The Scottish nation has to ask itself, do they feel lucky? Do they?

            The oil,gas & whiskey revenue will go 12 time further in an independent Scotland. (5 million people versus 60 million) :-)

            If the Scots bottle it they will be forever known as haggis eating surrender monkeys, a bunch of pussy-whipped slaves forever under the English yolk.

            If the vote comes down to heart v head, I reckon that the sensible folk will outvote the faux tartan oatcake nostalgics.


          • Expat Geordie says:

            What no-one seems to have pointed out is that if Scotland becomes independent and yet keeps the pound, they will have to surrender their own pound notes anyway. Currently the Channel Islands, Gibraltar and the Isle of Man are in the Sterling Zone and print their own money. However, although this money is “Sterling” it is not accepted in the UK as legal tender, simply because they do print their own money and the Bank of England has no control over it.

            The Bank of England does have control over how much the Scottish and Northern Irish banks print at present, and hence allows these two nations to have their own printed currency which is valid within the rest of the UK. Once the BoE loses control of the Scottish printing presses Scottish notes will be about as much uses as Guernsey ones. So Scots will have to take normal (i.e. UK) notes in Scotland, but will have to change their own notes into UK notes whenever they leave Scotland.

            With someone like Salmond controlling the printing presses, I can actually see a separate exchange rate for Scottish and British pounds. It’s either that or get rid of the various Scottish pound notes.

          • john in cheshire says:

            I fail to understand why the Scots, if they choose independence, need either the pound of the EU. If it was my country, I’d have my own currency, devoid of banker interference and would avoid the EU like the plague. Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert covered this superficially a few weeks ago and suggested that Scotland could benefit from having a crypto-currency. Maybe it’s time for the Scots to start thinking beyond the traditional. It could be their making and we might learn what freedom feels like, if they do.


          • FFS says:

            It is perfectly OK for Scotland to have its own currency. Norway does ad it has a smaller population. That’s not really the problem. The problems are:-

            1] M. Alexander Salmond was under the impression he could just go on using the £. Which is like divorcing your wife but insisting you can still have sex with her. It has made him look a bit of a fool that hasn’t thought these things through very well.

            2] There are quite a lot of costs associated with having your own currency. You need your own central bank and your own Mint. These costs, along with many others that would end up on the shoulders of an independent country, would be born on the shoulders of just 5million people instead of 60million.

            3] There would be currency exchange costs associated with all deals between Scotland and its major trading partner the UK. There would be a danger that the rest of the UK would consider trade with Scotland a bit of an annoying waste of time, causing low demand for the Scottish $ and thus a persistently weak currency.

            4] There would be currency risk for Scotland which would have to consider building up large reserves of gold or other currencies to protect itself from currency shocks.

            5] The EU will in any case not allow Scotland to re-join the EU without a full re-negotiation of terms which will include Scotland having the Euro. M. Salmond appears to have forgotten that.

            To summarise, M. Salmond looks more and more like a twat that didn’t think ahead very far.


          • Longshanks says:

            Salmond was caught off-side by the Euro catastrophe as he had originally planned to “escape” England and then immediately sign his freedom over to the EUSSR.

            Of course the Euroze financial melt-down made that seem not such a good idea after all, so he is now scrabbling around for alternatives.

            It’s all Mel Gibson’s fault really, with all that Brave Sporran nonsense.

            How much lower can we sink

            As Churchill said in 45 “This is our finest hour”
            He was a proper statesman, unlike the present shower
            These sycophantic Europhiles have bought us to our knees
            Now Cameron’s asks Barosso “Can we have some power please”

            I need to go back with a ruse to stem the UKIP flood
            The whole backbench will rise as one baying for my blood
            They want a referendum, not tomorrow but today
            I need to claim a victory to keep them all at bay

            We’ll fill it all with weasel words to let you off the hook
            I know it’s smoke and mirrors but its how we make it look
            You need to help me out here Boss, as PM I must stay
            If I should lose then kiss goodbye to 50 Mill a day

            This UKIP mob have pulled the rug from underneath my feet
            If I can’t claim a victory here I’m staring at defeat
            This Ferage chaps percentage vote is going through the roof
            I just don’t understand it, all he does is tell the truth

            I’ve lied and cheated schemed and stalled and gave a cast iron vow
            The cat alas is out the bag and no one trusts me now
            It’s time for you and Rumpy to step up to the plate
            With false negotiation spin before it gets too late

            Cameron is in an utter panic and will say anything in the hope it might get UKIP supporters to return. Firstly he cannot discriminate against Romanians/Bulgarians so any action he takes MUST apply to ALL immigrants and possibly UK citizens. Failure to do so would be deemed racist. Those from the EU have a legal right to all benefits available to our own citizens. Secondly the Children’s Act would make it illegal not to offer accommodation to families regardless of where they come from. Thirdly and something I am sure he will evade in his next speech is the fact that if he makes social housing unavailable for families he MUST put families up in the private sector for which the tax payer will be funding. Stand by for yet another speech of useless propaganda and phoney sound bites.
            UKIP was right all along Barosso will tell Cameron to piss off

As others have said, I am a unionist but would vote yes if I thought it would result in Scotland not getting into the grand Soviet.

    England population: 53,012,456

    But: Scottish MPs may vote on English matters. English MPs may not vote on Scottish matters.

    Yet: Scotland pays for University fees for any resident of Scotland or indeed any resident of the EU, with the exception of those resident in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    This is flagrantly in breach of EU treaty law. The same EU, incidentally, which Scotland expects to be admitted to if it secedes from the EU!

    Give the English a chance to vote on Scottish Independence! We will surely boot them out. Let the Scots live outside the UK, outside the EU, without a currency they can control and even without their own language. And we can put the only UK visa office in Scotland on Fair Isle.

    What a pleasure to see Mark Carney smoothly destroy the moronic lefty claptrap put forward by Andrew Marr. So much more impressive than the vacuous politicians normally on the show. Interestingly, Bob Crow appearing on the Sunday Politics show was impressive in a similar way: he pointed out that his job was to promote the interests of his union members, no more and no less and that none of the three main parties, especially Labour, represent the working man. His ideas re: the Green Party and his (understandable) Luddism may not be palatable–but at least he talks straight and displays honesty unlike ANY SINGLE MEMBER of the Labour Shadow cabinet, ANY MEMBER of the Liberal Party and all but two people on the Tory front bench and a few UKIPPERS.

        Fact is if Crow had the working man in mind the tube strikes would have been on a rolling line-by-line basis to cause problems only for the employer and not for the people using the tube. He’s playing politics like the rest of these Marxist crack-pots. Looking forward to seeing him burn in hell.

          Thatcherite says:

          As an unreconstructed Thatcherite I disagree, especially about Arthur Scargill. Scargill might have been misguided, he might have lost and both he and Thatcher and MacGregor might perhaps have been fighting over an industry that was just doomed anyway. But he always unashamedly did what he thought was right for British miners’ interests, even to the extent of acting illegally over miners’ pension funds. Ask yourself: Would you want your pension managed by Arthur Scargill or by one-time Labour MP Robert Maxwell?


          • Vin says:

            Scargill was only interested in Scargill. His inflated ego and seeing himself as the next overthrower of a democratically electected Tory gov’t were the main reasons for his ongoing action. And that is why he split the miners’ unions.

      FFS says:

      Bullcrap. Crow is playing politics and just misrepresenting himself. Scargill regularly did the same.

      If Crow really wanted to help the workers the tube strike would have been a line at a time shut down, not shutting down the whole system at once which put the problem vbery much in the lap of the tube users, rather than the employers. He’s a liar playing politics, thus more or less a politician.

        At that time there needs to be a demand for the rest of uk to have a referendum on the terms of Scotland breaking away from UK. I suspect that if they vote for independence that it will also be a significant part of 2015 GE campaign with parties having to state what they will do

          I think that Labour would have as much chance of being elected in Northern Ireland as they would in Surrey…zilch.

          We could have an interesting scenario if Scotland votes for independence in September. The existing Scottish Constituencies would still legally be able to put a MP for Westminster. Let’s imagine that Miliband wins on the basis of the Scottish Labour MPs. He would be in government until March 2016 a bare 10 months and have to be in charge of negotiating Scotland leaving the Union which would tie up hours of parliamentary time with Tories in the Commons and Lords fighting him every inch of the way. His legislative program would be difficult if not impossible and would grind exceedingly slowly
          He would in March 2016 cease to have a majority as Labour, LibDems and SNP MPs were immediately disbarred from the Commons and the Tories would launch a motion of no confidence as they did in 1979 against Callaghan.

          Miliband and Labour would be criticised from all sides by the Scots who would feel that Labour was dragging its heels on legislation to create an independent Scotland and the remainder of UK feel that too much parliamentary time was being devoted to it. All the time Labour would be under continued assault from the Tory Press.

          Independence for Scotland may be disastrous for the Tories but it would be cataclysmic for Labour

    £5 million spent on redundancies but permanent workforce increased from 10,701 to 11,177 in the past year
    The real employment levels at Environment Agency actually stood at 12,252 people (temps and contractor personnel)
    Budget and staffing levels that rival French, Danish, German, Swedish, Austrian and Canadian Environment Agencies COMBINED
    Directors at the agency declined bonuses but 38 managers shared a pool of £334,000
    Past two years, 14 employees left with six-figure cheques, some in excess of £150,000
    Spending on maintaining culverts and channels to help the flow of watercourses dipped by £1.3 million last year
    £3.6 million was trimmed off the budget to build or improve embankments that protect communities from floods
    Environment Agency spent hundreds on ‘equali-tea’ gay awareness mugs… and £30,000 on gay pride marches
    Spent over £250k from 2011 to mid-2012 on meetings at private venues, despite having over two dozen offices around the country
    Nearly 7,000 vehicles (plus trucks) – more than one official vehicle for every two employees
    Environment Agency bosses spent £2.4 million on PR alone (excluding staff wages) but refused £1.7million dredging in Somerset
    Single water abstraction licence for Avoncliff costing £152 cost the taxpayer ~£611,000-£1.5 million
    A £2 million Environment Agency case ended with a fine of just £1,000
    20-25% of business travel costs lost to fraudulent cases costing an estimated £1.8-£4.5 million
    Significant number of man-hours lost in abuse of flexi time, home working and annual leave

    The British media are cunts says:

    Obvious question NOT asked by the BBC. Why is it the military doing the survey of our flood defences? Let me guess, the EA can’t do it as they don’t employ enough engineers because all they’ve done over the last few years is employ more manager (usually women) on massive salaries with degrees in meeja studies, gender equality or art.

    Now they need to get thousands of people out actually doing a decent job they find they haven’t got the expertise to do it.

    Same thing happened with Railtrack many years ago, they fired all their engineers and employed women to sit in offices filling out diversity applications from sub-contractors and when they suddenly had all the broken track problems they didn’t have enough people to do the job.

      • 345
        The British media are cunts says:

        It’s the biggest scandal of the last 30 years, the Guardian reading elite getting rid of engineers (male) so they can bring in more birds on big salaries to meet their diversity criteria.

        Of course these bints are totally useless when the shit hits the fan, I bet the offices of the EA were still full of them whilst the mi,Italy were out filling sandbags.

        Don’t expect the media to pick this up though.

        Casual Observer 6 says:

        There are tricks and ruses going on, but would not worry too much about Barroso. He no longer has the confidence of M’erkel, and in any case will be stepping down soon.

        As a politician he is an adroit operator – which incidentally should be very deeply respected irrespective of his actual politics – but to that point your question is far from trite.

        There probably isn’t any real alterior motive this time – on matters relating to the UK he has been consistently straight. One suspects that he would prefer to see the UK remain singular, because if Scotland becomes independent, no force on earth will be able to keep S’pain together.


      • 357
        Casual Observer 6 says:

        - Oh – and other than S’pain, as someone else pointed out above, the question of K’osovo becomes much more complicated.

        One suspects that the EU would prefer K’osovo to rejoin with S’erbia, and the whole of S’erbia join the EU. With K’osovo independent, which is not working nor is sustainable, S’erbia is using the EU’s support of K’osovo as a sticking point in its own accession talks.

        It is simply quid pro quo for the EU – but independent Scotland followed by a disintegrated S’pain would make it impossible for the EU to do anything other than support K’osovo independence, which would see S’erbia remain out, possibly remaining independent of realigning with Russ!a.

        A look at the map will explain why the EU needs S’erbia in perhaps more that splintered member states, parts of which would have to independently go through the accession process again.

        This aspect of member state self determination I do not think was ever on the radar screen of the Federalists.

          It is very tiresome being thick.. says:

          But Scotland is already a member of the EU with all the chains firmly attached – so what is big fat barrel boy on about when he says they can’t join his club? Is he also proposing to kick them out? I thought his whole agenda was to enlarge the place and keep those already in, still in.

          Clearly I am missing the point here.

    Ah! Let 'em go says:

    A row has broken out over an NHS trust’s ‘nonsense’ advice on controversial homeopathic treatments.

    NHS Tayside has come under fire after telling patients the alternative remedies are ‘very safe’, ‘stimulate the body to heal itself’ and trigger improvements in the majority of cases.

    Doctors and politicians have previously slammed the availability of the treatments on the NHS – claiming the remedies are ‘scientifically implausible’ and ‘perform no better than placebos’.

    This is also the view of the Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies.

    However, the Scottish Government recently stated the therapies ‘may offer relief to some people’.

      You can try the electoral commission reports, but Twitter / Wiki is a fairly good resource.

      On Twitter, Lord Ashcroft, and local news reports – need to go back through the timelines – often have the breakdowns captured on the day. May also find links to local newspapers which often report this information.

      If you have a genuine interest it is best to keep an eye on the elections / reporting as it happens and capture into your own spreadsheet. Not perfect for historical – but that can be backfilled using the above resources.
