There are numerous good reasons to stay with the Union.

How could Scotland survive without the House of Lords.

We surely dont have the savvy to run the country without the guidance of London Politicians.

We dont have enough money in the kitty to pay for the whole country to be on benifits

We need the London goverment to pay for those benifits.

The reason we need the London goverment to pay those benifits is because we are a nation of scroungers and drunks that need guidance from our southern neighbours.

North sea oil is going to run out some time this century and what will we do without the London Goverment to fall back on.

We need the annual hounours list to pretend to the nation that we are appreciated by the rest of the Union.

Scotland is incapable of running its own armed forces without the London goverment.

Scotland is to wee.

Scotland is to poor.

Scotland is to (fill in your own excuse)

Scotland needs the London goverment to take people of benifits when it gets itself into another war and calls our sons up to be used as cannon fodder

There must be many more reasons for staying in the Union but I'm sure all the Unionists on the board can list them.

Dave hey hi Tongue firmly in cheek I love it all the best how the ell you've been

I took it as he think's an independent England would have to cut it's cloth accordingly, it would save £billions cutting back on defence alone (scrapping the next generation of Trident for eg) by losing the World power ego, and concentrate on her own domestic issue's, and yes Wombat, Westminster will be well aware of any natural resources in the waters surrounding the Falkland Islands.

You would think that at least one person who supports the Anti Scottish independence campaign would come on and challenge what those of us who support a YES vote have been posting.

I just wish one of them would come on an tell us why the intend to vote NO.

It can't be that Scotland is too poor.

With the undisputed evidence of the McCrone report plus the admission of former Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey that his and subsequent Westminster governments have lied to the people of Scotland over how much money that North sea oil was really generating, who from the mid 70's onward openly called the SNP and anyone who supported Scottish self determination liars for revealing the true value of the oil............How does that old saying go again?........Oh, that's right, "Once a liar, always a liar.

Even today, neither Cameron, Miliband or Clegg use that tired old chestnut of an excuse anymore, yet some Scottish unionists still do, why?

So come on all you unionists out there, if it isn't about finance, what are you worried about.

Or will you blindly vote NO regardless of how much better off Scotland would be?

Its not peculiar to this forum, jagz.
EVERYTHING (which isn't a lot) I've seen or heard down here, is the same. A reluctance to discuss ANY issues.
Which is even stranger still, when you think it DOES have an impact upon the rest of the UK.
The only thing I do hear, is a resounding 'its their decision,... good luck to them. In fact there are areas of England which want independence from a government who consistently does'nt come up with the goods - regardless of whether their red, blue, or yellow.

Scottish Labour MSP Ken Macintosh attacks a Scottish government grant awarded to Amazon unaware that his party colleague MSP Helen Eadie had called for the grant as Amazon bring a significant volume of jobs to her constituency in Fife.

Not only did he not know that Amazon were awarded support by the former Labour administration in Scotland but he was also blissfully unaware that the Labour controlled Welsh assembly led by Labour's Welsh FM Carwyn Jones had been boasting of their success and role in attracting Amazon investment to Wales.

The clip can be viewed below but i doubt Mr Macintosh will want to watch it again, it's just as well the Anti Scottish independence media led by the impartial BBC has let the people of Scotland down once again by ignoring this and then editing FM questions to make Johann Lamont's rant's look as though the FM has no answers.

The people of Scotland deserve better.

I wonder when he had his Homer Simpson moment when he slapped his forehead as he said "DOH", and the look on Helen Eadie's face was priceless.

I don't think anyone would be surprised to learn that the highest percentage of households in the UK were in the South East of England while Scotland has the least, perhaps some of the Better Together posters can come on and tell us just how exactly we are better together in this unequal union.

Speaking of unequal unions, it's quite comical to see now they divide the country into North and South, with the South covering the bottom 150 miles of the country and the North covering the remaining 700 miles.

Were all part of the one Nation..................You're having a laugh.

Vote YES next year thumbup.gif

You are quite correct Cat, next years vote is far to important for apathy, we owe it to future generations to get it right regardless of the outcome, in my own opinion a YES vote is the only sensible option for the reasons that have been made on this and other threads on GG over the last two years or so, i'm sure some NO voters will be on to tell you why you should vote NO.

And don't be a fearty cat, be a confident independent tail in the air Cat biggrin.gif

Vote YES next year thumbup.gif
