Reading about the threat to stop us using the Pound after independence, why not preempt this by changing the currency to the Scots Dollar, that would really get up their noses in london thumbup.gif

That's all it is Dave, a threat, nothing more, the Pound Sterling is as much our currency as it is England's, the same goes for the Bank of England despite the name.

Although i'm with Denis Canavan on the currency issue (our own currency) i don't mind us using Sterling in the short term until we establish our own currency.

Thanks for providing wee davy wi the info, JAGZ.

I think there will be a lot of negotiations needed. Jobs galore for constitutional and contract lawyers by the looks of it.

Rockall already belongs to Scotland too and is assigned to Invernesshire smile.gif

The unacceptable face of British Nationalism.

http://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/scotsol/ho...race-storm.html

To accuse your opponents of what you are guilty of yourself really is the lowest of the low.

Don't give this smug racist weasel his dream of 100 years of Tory rule.

Vote YES next year thumbup.gif

I hate it that anyone who uses the 'P' is smeared as a racist, it is an abbreviation as much as Scot. Brit or Aussie. Actions should be criminal not words.

As to that twitter post, it pisses me off more that that idiot is somehow linking an Independant country to pogroms or expulsions of peoples. These cretins that populate the 'No' campaign are given free reign to brand independence supporters everything from pol pot to mugabe to Mussolini, yet if a 'Cybernat' misplaces a comma all hell breaks loose on their ranks...

There should be T-shirts available then i could wear it with pride, some though would probably be offended and complain to the the police.

I don't disagree on that point John, but this moron is trying to imply that after independence the people of Scotland will become racist and turn on Pakistani's and Pole's etc, and to compare supporters of the YES campaign to members of the KKK is ignorance of the highest order, from a supporter of a regime who want more and more to remove and isolate the UK from the rest of Europe.

How ironic.

I dont think it's ignorance at all, i think this 'labeling' is done on purpose because they know that if a lie is repeated enough people accept it as the truth, mmm wonder where they got that idea from wink.gif

Smart won't apologise, blames the SNP, claims that if we become independent and economy does not work well, we, the people of Scotland, will "turn on" minorities. This clown is playing a race card in the independence debate.

"There is a worry" he says. Well I have never heard this "worry". Who are "these people" that he refers to that are going to turn on others.

Watch him defend himself here (after the grey hair advert).

This little pearler were snuck in halfway through the queen's speech today, but it does'nt appear in any of the 'FULL' written reports (I've only checked the BBC/Telegraph/Guardian or anywhere in the Scottish media - yet.

QUOTE
Queens Speech "my government will continue to make the case for Scotland to remain part of the United Kingdom"


Will somebody tell the NO campaign?
Then will someone have the decency to tell the people who matter? The Scottish People. Who can then finally engage in some meaningful dialogue?

I had to listen to it over again on video, to make sure of my facts. Its exactly six minutes in - for those of you who may be interested.

(continue to make the case??? shouldn't it be 'my governments will to do everything to explore the question of Independence for Scotland??)

Yes WD the tea time BBC in Scotland Misreporting Scotland had a 5 minute report on it (even though it only took a couple of seconds for Liz to announce it) but credit to the English BEEB Westminster reporter who repeatedly tried to quell Jackie Birds hysteria by reminding her that the speech was written by the UK government themselves.

As most of us in the YES campaign expected no mention whatsoever on the Ian Smart story, after a week of wall to wall coverage of the Susan Calman (someone who is pro independence may have sent her a death threat that no one has actually seen) circus they must be all tired out.
