Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

the scottish parliament is also a waste of scotlands resources all from the start when hiring a spanish architect to design the monstrosity.it would cost billions just to work out who would get passports,this is why it is a non starter and the scottish goverment should stop spending money on this fantasy.

Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

England would manage quite comfortably without Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland but the reverse is certainly not true.

I would quite happily see the UK split into its constituent countries and Ireland reunified but I suspect that within a very short space of time even the staunchest of patriots would be questioning the move.

Wales and Scotland have already had referendums on full independence and the public felt so strongly about it that hardly anyone bothered to vote.

There'll always be an England.....

Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

The thing that annoys me about all this devaluation malarkey is that things that are free in Scotland such as Nursing homes for the elderly, Student Fees, Prescription charges, free hospital parking, which are subsidised by the Westminster Government, yet we in England aren't afforded the same privileges

Devaluation?

Are you sure you're in the correct thread? Shouldn't you be in a different thread knocking the Co-alition Government for all their economic Blunderings?

I thought this thread was about devolution?

Typical Jaysay thread wandering again!

Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

Neil,thanks for the poll,I must try to find out how to do that. Can I make a suggestion? Is it possible to add to it 'Do the English really want independance?'. Sadly, I think the response may be equally definate.
MargaretR,this is the English saying what they think the Scots want. The opinion so far is that all agree with the majority of Scots-NO.So clearly they think the cries for Idependance(and Freedom?) are a con to squeeze as much as possible from a succession of faint-hearted London governments. Call Alex Salmonds bluff-insist on a referendum and watch him lose!

So they have a bigger slice of the pie.
Instead of saying their slice should be smaller, why not say our slice should equal theirs.

Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

MargaretR-you ask 'Why not say our slice should equal theirs'? It's part of OUR slice they're eating. Also the country is broke,bust, bankrupt.The pie has just got an awfully lot smaller!We're all going to have to have a smaller slice, that's why it's important it's shared fairly

'Who ate all the pies?' - the bankers - so don't blame the scots (except scottish bankers).

Bob - that's much better - who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks
