I believe that some of the things you highlighted would have happened regardless of a yes or a no vote. There are times when all we do is repeat ourselves over and over.

There are things that won't change whether we voted stay or leave.

I do not hold with the 'wasteland' theory at all.


They may well have happened Carmella, the point i was making though was that we were warned they would only happen if we voted YES.

Most things will remain the same after independence, the important things will change though, like making our own decisions on the economy, defence, health, immigration, telecommunications etc.

The "wasteland theory" you mentioned was of an industrial nature as the closure of our heavy industries like steel, coal and most of our shipbuilding proved.

Dont panic ! only 10% of that is down to Scotland. You might like to know that Prof Curtice reckons
you will have to wait at least 5 years for Indy 2. Of course the Selfie Queen doesnt know yet what
she will tell her applause monkeys in October.

Well Jagz it was Petalpeeps who mentioned the wasteland in the first place, all I did was say I don't believe it has been the case or will be the case.

All those industries were lost from Scotland many moons ago - so what else is new. And, yes I get the point about the Yes vote. It's up to those who believed it to answer. I have never believed in promises for what it's worth - regardless of the source.

jagz i have nothing to say as does the post from bile boy if he made any sense i still would not get involved in political arguments with bilbo as he and you and many others could take any argument i put forward to bits he is very eloquent and quite intelligent so i dont see why he needs to resort to slanging match that lead to people leaving this site as i see it it is always one sided s vilewords from bilbo he ignores specific questions to post . no matter who it is iwill be here as much as poss toget to him rant over

Independence means a largely meaningless wish list, lets have a look at a few on that list.

No Borders..................Does England not get a say on that?

Currency buoyancy..... what currency will that be?

£2.2 billion EU funding.... We wont be in the EU and if we were why would they give us £2.2 billion.

Investment in Wave....... That will come as a surprise to the guys laid off when the last experiment
was cancelled.

No pomposity.........Honest John !!! need I say more.

Best education.......That doesnt fit with alll the recent bad news

No expenses wasted.........Does that means no more 5 star hotels or £200 trousers.

No illegal Tory policies....... What Policies are those ?

Truth . Honesty.........Politicians lie,that will not change in an independent scotland.

Space investment..... By whom?

No sectarian incitement...... Are you kidding ? this is Scotland.

Surplus EU Nurses/Doctors......Sad ! An admission that we cant train our own.

A massive ground force..... what exactly is that?
