I liked the article from Yorkshire, I think Yorkshire folk are no fools and they speak their minds. Some of the best folk I ever encountered, and like us Scots don’t stand nonsense!

I don’t know how much of Scotland’s revenue over the many years has been diverted to Westminster, but I would like to know where the revenue would come from if we were truly independant. No-one seems to successfully answer that for me?

Over to you jagz👍😀

Can anyone recommend a good phone. I am thinking of getting either a Samsung ir Iphone?.........

I seem to remember answering this question before Carmella, i don't have time to go into the total breakdown of all of Scotlands revenues but we'll still have the same revenues as we do already and far more than countries of a similar size (Denmark, Ireland etc) that don't have the natural resources and food and drink sectors that we do here, what do you think that Scotland lacks from other independent Northern European countries of a similar size?


I was going to say that i have a Huawei phone but as it's Chinese i don't think you'd be interested in hearing my review of it. laugh.gif

Business for Scotland is of course a Pro Indy site run by a failed businessan he writes
"you can’t use GERS as an argument against independence. Maybe he should tell the
scottish govt who said....


'Government Expenditure and Revenue Scotland (GERS). GERS is the authoritative publication on Scotland's public finances.'

Your phone has great reviews at the lower price range for what you get is terrific value, but you’re right I won’t own one thumbup.gif

Jagz we export a lot of our food and fish, so that’s a given. Our tourist industry has been decimated due to the virus, many attractions will be forced to close permanntly, and some will re-open in a reduced capacity doing enormous damage to Scotland and jobs. There will eventually be light at the end of the tunnel. We all kniw that.

A couple of years ago someone mentioned our revenue from the alcohol industry, oil etc., well sorry but that falls on deaf ears with me there has to be stronger evidence of where this revenue will come from, once we get through the other side of Covid, and life as we know it may return to normal. To be frank I don’t think our lives will ever be the same after Covid. But hey don’t worry because China will continue to prosper, unless companies world wide stop giving them orders. I don’t give a stuff for the jobs of the Chinese, I only care about Scottish jobs, and the jobs in the UK. Furthermore, for the reasons mentioned in my second paragraph, how can someone who claims to love Scotland and Indy, not feel as I do about our jobs and tourism, it baffles me! Most people have just had their longest ‘holiday’ in life, mixed with some sunshine and warmth, yet seem to want to support tourism in the Med etc., rather than protect the tourism, jobs etc., in their own country. That mindset also baffles me.

I don’t think you or anyone else can keep throwing up these comparisons with other countries of a similar size, those incidentally where the cost of living is very high

If I thought Scotland could successfully become indy in every successful and wealthy way, I would vote for it. Also never feel that me, or others who don’t want indy, or who don’t vote SNP love Scotland less that you.
