No problem about the first bit, to be honest it was to be expected from someone who hasn't worked in manufacturing (like me, although it was only for a few months) rolleyes.gif The rest of your post was, indeed, spot on yes.gif

I agree with you though, another thoughtful post Weeman and I enjoyed reading your "link" Bilbo (but watch you don't get a reputation for posting them tongue.gif )

  I loved reading every word of it. Ta Bilbo. thumbup.gif

My one wish (before pegging oot) is to see a fully independent Scotland. It's been a dream for me for over 55 years, a dream that was mostly born from my English Dad, who met, fell in love with and married a Scottish lass from Springburn, Glasgow during WWII.

After settling together in Glasgow in the 40's, he very quickly fell in love with the folk of Glasgow. Being from Southampton he could barely understand the Scottish brogue, but that didn't stop him 'mingling' with the locals and within 10 years he regarded himself as Scottish!

In that short time he recognised the hold that England had over the Scots and proceeded to instill in us the belief that we should be independent - my Mum disagreed, due to fear I reckon, which I think is still paramount in Scots today.

He was a very smart bloke, he knew more about Scottish history than even my teachers at school did and never missed an opportunity to highlight the achievements of Scots to his English friends and relations, aye, and even correcting the Glaswegian locals when they got it wrong.

Unfortunately, he never lived long enough to participate in the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum which he always insisted was coming - that would've made his life complete I reckon.

Although coming from an upper middle class background, he loathed the tories (as do I) and was an ardent SNP supporter, he maintained that a tory government would destroy Scotland - given the chance, not too far wrong so far.

Sadly, my Dad had more faith in the Scots than they have in themselves.

So an independent Scotland will continue to use British Embassey staff? Whether you admit or not
Scotland, Wales and N.ireland are subsidised.Your comments about drug users demean you.


Scotland will have it's own Embassy's like every other normal independent country, and Scotland subsidises the rest of the UK whether you like it or not.
