An independent Scotland is a hopeless aspect it would mean poverty for the next three generations, it would make Scotland worse than a third world country, breaking up the Union is stupid, Alex Salmond means well and talks well and I like him as a person, but he is a politician that wants to ruin a proud nation.<br />
I am 63 and have lengthy Scottish heritage.
I agree it would mean disaster for Scotland, we are much better being part of the UK. I can hear Alex Salmond using the success of the Scottish athletes at the Olympics as another example of how an independent Scotland would be successful. Of course none of them train in Scotland which somewhat negates his opinion!
Real madness but it will save England million's so I hope they vote to go as they are a lazy nation that are mainly on state handouts, a huge amount of illegal immigrants as your borders are out of control.<br />
Scotland a Nation that has lost it's way under Alex Slamond.<br />
The village idiot.
Good shout but its not going to happen, personally come 2014 I predict 75 /25 % in favour of the union..
What on earth makes you say that?...
Is that because a few years ago Europe would have given them stacks of dosh only to pay trillons back?
I agree, I study in Glasgow and nearly all teh students are apposed to an independent Scotland. Nothing to worry about. Got to be careful though with salmond in there. He's trying to make it so that 16 is the minimum age for voting to incorporate all the English hating NEDS lol
I'd think so, but ego and emotional so often trump logic.
Another Hamish Macbeth, huh?
I'll let Hamish know you're really into him, Foxy
Its all a bit beyond me really. Better to stay with Britain than be ruled by a faceless European Union like we are.They are Eating us alive!<br />
Scottish people are proud of ther heritage and rightly so. Staying within UK wont change that.<br />
Im Irish and I used to be proud!
I really hope this thread isnt dead. I stumbled upon it and never before have i read as much nonsense in my entire life. Bungling buffoons who claim to be in the right are astonishingly ignorant when it comes to the facts of the issues they are discussing. <br />
If any of you believe what you read in the Daily Mail and the Sun (which i can only assume many of you do if the drivel written above is anything to go by) and reckon that Scotland is the great subsidy junkie then you must take time out and check some figures.
Why is it folly? Ive asked you a few times to come out and justify these claims, you have failed to do so. Bluster and wind.
Free Scotland. Scotland for the Scots not the Englisg bastards.
Not true. Scotland is better off than the French or Italy and it gives away more to London than it gets back. The only thing that would've changed is that the Scots would've been masters in their own land instead of the English. Currency and all would've remained the same. Something similar to Canada and the other former colonies that offically are under the crown so to speak. Scots don't need London. The English need the Scots and their oil.
Lol great arguments :) I'm sure your ancestors would be proud of you being a just a ***** for the southerners ;) A true scotsman lol
