I have no doubt that the Nats would like to join the Euro but that would probably deter
many No voters from switching to Yes.


Proof, or stop making things up.

  Scottish notes are not in fact legal tender even in Scotland but its a very stupid business that
would refuse to take them. Only notes issued by the Bank of England are legal tender in the
UK. I have no doubt that the Nats would like to join the Euro but that would probably deter
many No voters from switching to Yes.

  I don’t remember it the same way Jagz, well possibly ina small way.

You’re right of course about the Euro, only 9 countries including the UK retained their own currency. I think Scotland if independant, will do the same.

We have all had the “oh it’s not a bank of England note” thrown at us, but it is still legal tender. This is one of only a few things that used to, and still annoys me.

Every country who joined the EU and use Euros as their currency, instead of holding on to their own as the UK did, within a very short space of time complained abou the hike in expenses, shopping and the general cost of living.

Just sayin’


I remember the same thing happened in 1971 when decimalisation was introduced, and no nation is forced to use the Euro.

  He's the Nat who took over from SNP activist and latterly fraudster McGarry.

Its no surprise that he said the currency would be the pound as Wee Eck famously
said "Its our pound too" I look forward to the explanation as to how this will work
in the real world.

You might find it on BBC i player, i am surprised the Selfie Queen allowed him to be interviewed
by Mr Neil.


Then can you explain what he said and why you disagree with it without using primary 3 playground language.

You could even explain who Mr Linden is, as most people (Including myself) wouldn't have a clue who he is?

David Linden was interviewed tonight by Andrew Neil. He was adamant that an independent Scotland
would use the pound albeit not in a currency union with the rest of the UK. He even more adamantly ruled out the Euro!


Do you have a link for this interview DJ?

It's difficult to comment if we don't know the context.
