    I have no intention to censor your views.

    why did you make the assumption
    Because it seems more likely than an interest in domestic kitchen appliances.

    You still have failed explain where the Nazi bit comes from. And merely mentioning Nazis in a blog like this is as near as you can get to calling me one. All be it a rather cowardly way.

    The simple link would be your stance on immigration and the coincidence in your user name…

    I guess that we already have a problem if the “ideal” population of these islands is around 30million.
    We can either find some way of reducing the current population – perhaps via a mass euthenasia scheme – or expand the area of the country by invading a close neighbour to create some more “living space”.

    SD-253 That article quoted by yourself and in toby youngs blog refers to the situation in 2004,10 years ago. Still I note that one middle class left of centre politically correct media outlet is mildly critical of what you claim is a middle class left of centre media outlet.
    The point for this thread would surely be that people in an independent Scotland would still have access to the BBC,The Guardian and all the rest of the media including The Telegraph.

    Somehow this blog on Scottish independence became a blog on immigration, which is nothing to do with independence. But the supporters decided to throw it in as way of ambushing people so that they can call those against racist. Also there was little or no reason for independence other than a hatred of the English. I am personally in favour if we don’t have to continue to subsidise Scotland. But it appears thats not whats going to happen. It appears we are expected to continue to do so

    . Arhh another attempt at censorship by calling me a Nazi. By the way I have never said the ideal population of the UK is 30 million that well known Nazi Richard Attenborough said it!

    I wonder what the habitable area of Australia is compared to the desert? And how many people it could support, in terms of arable land and water?

    About right now I reckon, same as America 🙂

    Though the UK does need a re-balancing of it’s population due to the excessive numbers of old people. I’d replace them with as many good hard working people I could find. Nationality irrelevant. As my experiences in Oz have shown me it won’t be long before the call “Funky Immigrants” at anyone who doesn’t fit in.

    PS can find nothing on the first 3 pages of Google which brings anything up about Nazis and my user name. Only bread maker and highway 253.

    Sorry to side track the thread. SD-253, I am thinking of buying a breadmaker. What are your thoughts on that particular model? Keen to discover if it does a satisfactory bagel. Used to have one but bagels came out dry and crunchy.

    One of the reasons to vote yes would be for a chance to have a sensible immigration policy based on facts,rather than scare stories given the UK govt doesnt seem able to provide one.
    David Cameron said there would be no reason to think Scotland could not be a successful independent state.
    “Supporters of independence will always cite examples of small, independent and thriving economies, such as Switzerland and Norway. It would be wrong to suggest that Scotland could not be another such successful, independent country” – David Cameron (April 2007)
    Not sure why you think the rest of the UK will be subsidising Scotland.

    AH Scotroutes see you’ve linked to another of those trendy left of centre politically correct media outlets.

    Aye – but the original news page was from a “quality Scottish Sunday newspaper”.

    By the way I have never said the ideal population of the UK is 30 million

    You did, though. I mean, you really did. No messing, no argument, no flapping around and pretending I’m calling you a nazi.

    SD-253 – Member

    Have I got this right Scotland wants more immigrants? Are you real? Or is it that Scotland wants more non English immigrants? I actually doubt they want or need more immigrants. I would suggest that the UK should not have a population greater than 30 million.

    There’s only one quality Scottish newspaper. And that’s the Perthshire Advertiser with such hard hitting cutting edge front page news stories as “Man probes dangerous hedge” etc etc etc

    It was actually a front page story. I don’t remember the headline but the “man probes dangerous hedge” was the photo caption.

    SdKfz 253 is not the same as sd-253. As matter of interest why are you so interested in “Nazi tanks”? If you imply I am racist because my username bears a slight resembles to the name of a WW2 tank where does that leave you?

    Now this question is not meant to have a ANY negative connotation attached to it, it is an honest question. How are you able to post at any time of the day? I assume? That you are working? I am out of the labour market and have been for sometime. Do you all have office jobs which allow you to post at work? AGAIN nothing nasty just an honest question.

    You took that badly, it was an honest question not a snide one.
