Just been listening to the launch of the SNP's white paper on independence and a number of issues have come to mind.
1) Currency: they want to keep the pound as is. Surely this ties them into the UK in the most profound way by inextricably linking their economy to the rest of us, which is surely why they want independance in the first place isn't it??
2) Votes: How come jocks living anywhere in the world can vote except those living in the UK outside of Scotland? i.e. someone in Beijing can but someone in Birmingham can't ...... whats that about?
3) The impact on the rest of us: The penny has only just dropped as to why Call me Dave is so keen on the referendum. i.e. if they go so will a large number of Labour MP's, and it will profoundly change the future shape of the UK Politics...... in his favour surprisingly.
So the question is: Given that the Scots and the rest of us are really deeply intertwined, for example I'm 50% Scot 50% Cumbrian, or in my local there are at least 25% Jocks who are regulars, which I very much doubt is particularly strange, and that this decision will deeply effect all of us regardless of which side of the border we are on, how come we don't all get a vote? (The obvious it doesn't suit Dave's purposes answers apart).
