Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

So we're finally getting down to the serious decisions.
It's time the UK Government told Salmond he can't pick and choose his own terms and leave the rest of the UK to cover the risks of any wild policies he comes up with- and if he knew we'd cover him he certainly would.
Any UK party which let him get away with it would surely loose power in the rest of the UK, not just Scotland. I think public feeling in rUK would be even stronger than it is about the EU.
Good that all three parties are together on this!
Now let's hear his 'Plan B'. Just give him time(say 6 hours) to think of one.

BBC News - Scottish independence: 'Yes' vote means leaving pound, says Osborne

Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

Salmond has always been a complete pillock in my view, very rare i would ever agree wi Osbourne who himself is one, but on this i do.

Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

I'll be watching the odds but I think it's a good bet that they'll vote NO to independence. (Bookies' odds are pretty reliable on political issues!)

Having never placed a bet on anything, the figures you quote above are meaningless to me, are the Scots in favour or not

Why do you post in that exaggerated font? - it doesn't give your comments more weight.

The odds quoted strongly suggest that the vote will be a NO.

Re: Do the Scots REALLY want Independance?

From what I've read about Scottish Independence, it seems as if pro-independence Scots really want something similar to what the Part-Quebecois wants for La Belle Province: All the benefits of independence, but with none of the drawbacks. And, as far as I can see, it is not up to Scotland to define "independence"; it is up to the dominant partner in the UK ... and that would be England. Cameron should get on his hind legs in parliament and say "If you vote for independence this is how it will be. You have a right to vote "yes" for an independent Scotland, but no right to vote on the kind of independence you want."
