What's your stance on Scottish Independence?

I am 100% NO vote.

I’ll try and keep it short: Alex Salmond is not just a tool, he’s a complete Tool Box.

Scotland want financial and political independence, but the SNP want the Pound Sterling currency, meaning that they’ll need financial regulation from the Bank of England and a political union with Westminster. Its complete bullshit.

Secondly, Salmond is tugging at people’s heartstrings rather than providing them with facts and figures. He’s telling the people that Westminster is treating Scotland as a second class citizen, not providing Scotland with the money and freedoms it requires. This is also complete bullshit.

Scotland actually receive beneficial treatment from the British Government - they get things for free (such as Elderly Care, Prescriptions and Tuition) that English citizens pay for, and actually receive more money than half of England. But the SNP are going for the emotional side of things, and getting people to vote YES because Patriotism!

Thirdly, everything is based on "If"If the oil continues. If they get the pound sterling. If they get into the European Union. If they keep the large business around. If they keep the banking sector in Scotland and so on and so forth.

  • It has been known for a very long time the Oil is going to run out in our lifetime.
  • They may not qualify to enter the European Union and possibly could not afford it (it costs tens of millions a day to be part of the EU).
  • Large businesses use the UK has a jumping off point for trade with the EU, and companies like IBM and Amazon may move.
  • The banks (such as Lloyds and RBS) have stated that a YES vote would send their operations to London, as they are regulated by the Bank of England and need that gateway to the EU.

For me in England, it means less than two hours North of where I live, I’ll have a solid border. It means that everyday items may become more expensive for me to purchase as Scotland leaving would lower the value of the Sterling, and it means the North of the Island would feel even more abandoned as businesses based in Scotland move South to London.

If anyone Scottish reads this, VOTE “NO”.

Salmond is being lead by the nose by shadowy SNP politicians, and he himself has not given you ANY solid information regarding the above issues. Hell, Westminster finally bent over and agreed to give Scotland the Financial and Political independence they wanted if they stayed in the Union, and he basically told the British government to fuck off.

He doesn’t even know WHAT THE CURRENCY WILL LOOK LIKE.

Vote NO. Keep the Union together. We are one of the single most powerful countries in the world for a damn good reason, and its not because some fat nationalist prick put a spanner in the works.

Wowwww the ignorance.

First off, of course we want the pound, we have the Bank of Scotland which produces the same currency, Scotland set up the Bank of England in the first place.

We have always been treated second class by England! Treated like guinea pigs! In world war 2, you tested Anthrax on our Gruniard island, killing our livestock and leaving it uninhabitable to this day! Thatcher tested the community charge out on Scotland first!

Now Westminster is vowing if theres a no vote theyll give us more powers. They also said that in 1979 about the devolution. There was a no vote and Scotland got NOTHING. Oh wait… We got Margaret Thatcher!

NICE ONE.

We have soooo much more than oil (and it alone is worth well over a trillion) we have billions to make in tourism, technology, food and also, renewable energy.

I can tell you now that the EU would be foolish to kick us out, considering Scotland alone has 60% of the entire EU’s oil and gas reserves.

Lloyds and RBS’s office is already registered in London anyway! That was yet another scare story by the no vote party.. Also, that sort of information shouldnt be be broadcast until after the referendum result! PROOF its scare mongering!

Lastly, you are English, how can you seriously say “if you are Scottish and reading this, vote no!” No one should dictate to someone what to vote, ESPECIALLY not someone in another country.

Scotland never agreed to a union in 1707 in the first place, remember that.

Also, please back up your claims with actual sources.

As a Scot, I am completely and totally fed up of the English telling me how to vote.
If you are an English born person living in Scotland, fair play, I’ll listen to you because you get a vote. But as an English person living in England? Please do not tell me how to vote on the future of MY OWN country.

And friendly reminder, a vote for independence is NOT a vote for Alex Salmond, nor is it a vote for the SNP. If we gain independence we can vote them out of office if we wish because we will have COMPLETE control over who runs OUR OWN country for a change.

I am trying to see the logical YES side, and thus far I cannot find a logical reason as to why, apart from a middle finger to Westminster. Jens-Peter Bonde also resigned in 2008, and since then nearly 100million words of new legislation and changes have been put in place and, really, taking word from the current president is more reliable than a mere MP from 6 years ago. Patriotism is all fine and dandy but not at the expense of a logical conclusion. W/E - Lets just see how it rolls. -Peace \m/

sinosure:

Really think you’re placing too much on “facts” when there’s a lot of gray area. Can 100% tell you it’s not a middle-finger to anyone. But yeah okay whatever man, this has only made me believe in the Yes campaign more and I’m sure the opposite for you. Yeah, let’s just see what happens on Friday.

Not to question your sources but... that's a Reddit AMA. My quote was direct from the horses mouth (Jose Manuel Barroso, European Commission President). Plus, with a response like yours (a government who gives a toss), you're only really looking at one tiny facet of the situation. Trade, Economy, Reserves, Defence, Welfare, Health and so forth. Breaking the union is damaging. I'm also trying to see the logic behind a YES vote, because your responses are currently based on nationalism and trust.

sinosure:

A verified AMA (or else it would have been deleted) by a man who: “was a member of the European Parliament for 29 years, leader of a political group for 17 years and has published 60 books about the European Union.”
I don’t think that  because it is on Reddit makes it any less credible. If he had tweeted it, would that make it any more or less reputible?

I don’t look into politics. I’m not armed with 50 different articles on how great and fantastic Scotlands going to be after a Yes or No vote. Britain is a shitehole as it is, cant blame us for wanting to get rid of people who only look after London. I could go and dig through the internet and find you this and that but you’ll have to forgive me since it’s 20 to 6 and I can’t be bothered.

Anyway, my original point was that it really leaves a sour taste in my mouth when the English tell Scots how to vote. Have an opinion, sure, but don’t actively say “SCOTLAND YOU MUST VOTE NO LEST YOU BE DOOMED FOR ALL OF ETERNITY”.

If you see no point in the Yes side, cool, but half of Scotland do and your opinion doesn’t overshadow 2.5mil peoples. I just hope I’ve given you some insight on why we want to break away.

Its because Oil is the big thing the SNP is pushing for. Some large businesses need EU membership and the UK for trade, the UK is Scotland's biggest trader. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso stated that it would be difficult if not impossible for Scotland to Join the EU. A Currency union is exceptionally risky and actually puts Scotland on very volatile ground. Saying NO keeps trade, keeps the £, keeps the EU and removes risk. I don't need to live there to see the logic behind it

sinosure:

Saying that we will not be givin EU membership is entirely ridiculous. You might want to have a read of this.

You’re missing a very big point…this is about what is right for Scotland and the people of Scotland. Sit back and let a party we didn’t vote for make the decisions for us like the last however many years, or form our own government with and vote a party into power that actually give a toss about us? Seems like the answer’s pretty clear to me.

Yes, the "16 or something?" was OTT. Apologies. The office of national statistics published a paper in 2013 showing how little profit could actually be made from Oil, 12X less, in fact. Sir Ian Wood backed this up. The quotes mentioned can be found easily on the net. The BoE regulating the sterling is common knowledge. WWII, 1707, Thatcher are not relevant. It rests on one thing, Oil, and there is very little. I don't see little logic in a YES. Scots have it better than most of the English.

sinosure:

But there is much more money coming out of Scotland that isn’t just oil. If there wasn’t, our economy would have been on it’s arse long ago.

It’s not about “who has it better”. No one is competing for who has it worse. I’m finding it difficult to explain this because you aren’t Scottish. You don’t live here and so I can understand why you don’t see logic in the Yes movement.

Like I said before, it’s not black and white, it’s not cut and dry. A lot of us want change. We want to be represented fairly and evenly in a parliament that has our best interests at heart, and Westminster simply doesn’t.

I don’t know what happening with currency, I don’t think anyone does. Just a reminder that if Yes wins, we aren’t just annexed from Britain that day. There’s a lot of negotiating to take place over the next 18 months. Do I wish those negotiations could have taken place before the indyref? Yup. It would make things so much simpler so have everything laid out, but that’s impossible. I think you should take something from the fact that even though Yes voters aren’t 100% on what the future holds for us, we’re still willing to run with this because that’s how strongly we feel about the need for change for Scotland.

Or you could just check the updated post on my page. To keep the answer brief and short: Office of National Statistics, EU statistics and official quotes for pretty much everything I stated. It doesn't take 2 seconds to Google. Scotland voting YES is bad for both sides, and regardless of vote, its always going to be bad for the scots because of the divide in the populace. Britain is a superpower because it has Scotland, and this Jeopardises everything. We are also one nation, every gets a say.

sinosure:

I checked your blog after I has posted that and honestly, you didn’t link to any sources and just put some stuff in bold and then bullet pointed it.
Then you brought age into it with the girl who originally commented asking her if she was “sixteen or something???” and you believe the sole reason half of Scotland are Yes voters is because Alex Salmond is tugging on our heartstrings.

Everyone has a say but not everyone has a vote. Coincidentally, it’s the people who it will affect the absolute most who hae a vote. Imagine that.

You have no idea is scotland voting Yes will be bad for us or anyone else. if it was that black and white do you really think anyone would be voting yes?

I don’t expect you to understand because you don’t live here, as you said the country is basically split over this but that in NO WAY is bad for us. My mother and her partner are both NO voters and my brother and myself are both YES voters. We aren’t trying to bottle or knife each other. Both sides are HUGELY passionate but that doesn’t mean theres a huge rift in our society. In fact, Yes and No voters are getting along just fine.

We wont be guilted into staying with Britain because you will lose you “superpower” status. We want whats best for OURSELVES now and if that causes England to lose its “superpower” status then so be it.
