So, Scottish Independence then. Not really wanted by Scots.

Seriously, there will be more than one place in the whole of the UK where the nukes could be stored. It’ll cost a few quid but it’s perfectly doable if the RUK want to retain the nuclear capability.I can’t remember all the details, but there are some issues regarding timescale and cost. I guess it might still be a bargaining chip 🙂Posted 5 years agoduckmanMember
We could rent the bases to the English; and you could have Dalgety bay as your own version of the infamous US Cuban camp. You know,for when your Tory-Presidente-for life starts rounding up the socialists. Actually;spending a bit of time in that part of Fife would make ANYBODY spill the beans.
Having already said it once, I’ll say it again: I don’t really care either way.

I’m puzzled what’s to be gained by the upheaval of Scottish independence when somewhere down the line it may well be swallowed whole by the eu.
It will never ever have a tory government
That would motivate me greatly 😀
I think there may be a federal system and therefore Scotland will be stronger within the EU as an independent nation than as a part of the UK where the Engerlanders dominate.Posted 5 years ago
…..and hello Greece of the North
I call bullshit.
Comparing ONE aspect of spending with ONE aspect revenue is misleading at best.
England’s spending on welfare and pensions is higher than revenues from the financial service sector. What’s you point caller.
Getting official figure on Scotland’s tax and spending is always difficult as those who wish to see the status quo maintained like to keep it this way.Posted 5 years ago

The difference is theres a whole developed variety of industry and business south of the border.
Wheres Scotlands banking sector? Who is the biggest employer (per capita) etc etc.
Italy has 1.9 trillion of debt. We have 1trillion.
How much of the trillion will Scotland take over/ownership for when they leave?
Do you really really think Scotland would be given a SugarDaddy cash gift if it chose to leave?Posted 5 years agoteamhurtmoreSubscriber

Wheres Scotlands banking sector?
Good point – the Scots shouldn’t have to pay for the bailout of banks which mainly operate outside Scotland.
Phew, that’s a relief. Let’s extend that to losses made by other banks outside the UK (eg, Barc and HSBC in the US)?Posted 5 years ago
Unemplyment rate in Scotland vs Unemployment rate in England anyone?
Irrelevant. Scotland could only have 10 people unemployed, but if they can’t afford 10 unemployed people then they’re not viable.Posted 5 years ago
The RUK should realign it’s benefits package to be slightly less that that of an independent scotland.grumMember
With the very obvious exception of RBS.
Phew, that’s a relief. Let’s extend that to losses made by other banks outside the UK (eg, Barc and HSBC in the US)?
I see no-one’s listened to the More or Less show I posted earler. 😉
I don’t understand how it would benefit Scotland.
They would no longer be part of a country that’s totally and utterly in hock to the greed and recklessness of the financial services sector?Posted 5 years ago
