Very balance thread this....Westminster does fk all for Scotland apart from squander its 95% legally owned North sea oil revenues. That bollocks about it running out is nonsese too not to mention the West coast fields not even being dug up yet nor the oil and natural gas directly beneath Scotland. Cameron and the rest of them are shIttin it - why else would he care about Scotland? Unlike the fast becoming right wing England, Scots never vote tory, yet are condemed to a goverment they never vote for - a government that only serves the south east of England. Farage can do one aswell. Played the 'anti English' card when he was hounded out of Edinburgh the other week yet among the protestors were English students.
The English don't really give a shit, Scots would be fucked without England. Can you remind me of where the companies that found the oil and gas came from? I forget.
Talk me through which currency you think Scotland should use
The English doesnt give a shit, thats great, no one cares.
"Scots would be fucked without England" How does that work? Its been proved time and time again that Scotland more than pays its own way per person and gets less back from the treasury.
It doesnt matter where the companies came from. The tax revenues are generated from Scottish waters and should therefore stay within Scotland like any other sovereign nation would do.
Scotland owns a proportional share of the bank of England and theres no way that Westminster could prevent Scotland from using sterling.
Anyway the facts of the matter are that Scotland does not want to be run right wing tory posh boys who no nothing about Scotland. Why would Scotland want to be part of a country where child povery is increasing, increases in folk using fking food banks not to mention the bedroom tax?
