Why do you spend your waking life on this thread then?

Don't you have anything better to do?
Lot's to do. But ensuring a group of economic illeterates spreading BS in order to gain an outcome that will screw my, my family, my friends and my kids future seems a small price to pay.

The barrage is pretty constant
, whether it'd be from the media or from this very website.
Ah. Wings over Scotland. The website set up by a fake reverend living in Bath.


I always have a distinct distrust of any organisation that uses stylised eagle wings as part of its sigil.

Imperial Rome
Napoleonic France
Tsarist Russia
Modern Russia
Austro-Hungarian Empire
Prussia
Imperial Germany
Nazi Germany
Royal Air Force

I mean that some seriously dastardly company there.

So you've done the standard YeSNP approach of cherry picking which paragraphs to read.
Don't worry. I'd blame someone else too, if I made a complete arse of myself like you just did there.

Oh yea, BT is pretty much a voice for Westminster, but you don't see me coming out with that crap lol.

Issue no arse myself. You were given the report and cherry picked information out if it. I know I'll not convince you otherwise, but others will have a chance to read it.

Maybe when we declare Independence we should annex the north of England? Maybe just Cumbria and Northumberland first, then work downwards, after they have voted for it in a snap-referendum obviously.

No you haven't. I'm merely pointing out that that's where the money goes. (And Wales and NI) not London and the south east.

More fiscal reality for Alex to deal with.....

http://www.scotsman.com/news/politic...obref=obinsite

So, a quick recap of the current SNP economic position:

After apparently walking away from iScotlands share of liabilities (lol) after being refused currency union, losing billions more than the original share of the debt in reserves and assets in the process, Salmond then has to help fill an enormous private pension black hole (up to 225bn apparently). He may then have to borrow on the credit markets at punishing rates, what with him just having dropped a nice big default and having no credit history. The rUK presumably will not be in the best of moods with him to help him out with a cross border arrangement either. Anything I've missed chaps?

This is beginning to remind me a lot of that Iraqi propaganda minister just before the Americans turned up. The denial is incredible.

So as someone from down south your view on the situation is that Scotland is a country that cannot survive without England's help, and whilst Scotland suffers you will laugh.

It's views like this that convert more undecideds to YES every day.

Where have I said that then? I've said the Yes campaigns policies are economically illiterate. Scotland would be fine if there was actually someone competent running it.

And sorry to disappoint you and your anti-English bigotry pal, but I'm more Scottish than English. Get that up ye.

I'm from Scotland and would agree fully with the comments. It's the same problem for any other part of the UK that wishes to leave.

Could you spare me the 'every day we're converting more undecideds to vote yes line' I've been hearing it for years' they've achieved a whopping 2 to 3% swing

Maybe we should stop creaming our pants and wait until it's been officially officially ruled out (e.g being told there's no CU after there's been a Yes vote in reality). It'll be hard, but I'm sure you can restrain yourself :yy:

Get it up ye? Grow up son!

You more than clearly imply it in your whole post, especially the text I bolded for you.

The old anti-English bigotry card too. Pathetic.

As for your nationality, I couldn't care less. I welcome all races and creeds in Scotland, including the English!

Clarify for me please. The comments meaning Scotland needs England's help to cope?

Are you suggesting that there might be people who want Scottish independence that don't like the English, and Unionists who don't like the Scottish?

What next? Water is drinkable?!
