Jut think of not having Westminster and the tories, at all.

Worth more than money could ever buy them.

Irrelevant, £100s of billions have been made by the treasury since the 70s and only a tiny fraction has benefitted Scotland from what are mostly Scottish resources. The insinuations are that Scotland doesn't contribute enough for what it takes from the treasury, which is far from the truth. It's already contributed enough through past oil revenues for many decades to come.

I love the Scottish oil myth. It was their government and companies that paid for it's exploration, drilling, transport and refining. It is also protected by the Scottish navy and traded on the Scottish Stock Exchange. It must also speak Scottish and wear a kilt.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

There is no 'myth' about the revenues generated from Scottish oil. Those were used and squandered mostly by England, with a tiny fraction remaining/going back into Scotland.

 


Pro China, EU & Palestine

It's not Scottish though is it. It's near Scotland in some cases, that's about it. Some of it isn't any nearer to Scotland than it is to other countries. Ownership of these things just doesn't work the way this constant economic thread of Scottish independence likes to suggest.
The suggestion is that the minute Scotland becomes independent, the Scottish can live like the Saudis from their oil, plus a bit of whiskey.
As if the British government would just give it all away and say good luck. It's literally just silly.

As a matter of interest what government paid for the initial exploration? Doubt it was Scotland. Or is it the case of let the Central Government pay but anything made from it is ours?

Spending a lot being the better option than spending more than a lot is hardly a good choice.

I agree that the SNP expect the UK to fund their project, kind of buy me a big stick and I will beat you with it.


Natwest already announced if Scotland goes independent they are leaving and taking all the jobs with them.

If more major employers did this then people would be less enthusiastic

Spending billions to preserve the union will be less expensive and disruptive than the cost breaking it up.

We need a less London centric economy. Its a real shame the HS2 can't be extended up to Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen.

Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

A few months ago there was so much excess oil the price became negative as the big companies had to pay people to take excess production off their hands.

By 2040 there will be a ban on manufacturing new petrol vehicles.

I know Steeleye loves my Daily Mail Links.

Sturgeon fails to answer some pretty awkward questions about Scotland's post independence economy.

Let them go and become an impoverished dystopian nightmare. The prospect of independence is an industry employing many people on nice salaries such as Sturgeon's husband.

They must know that economically it is a non starter.

I like the way the SNP have all been instructed to have EU flags on view in video interviews and use the word
" Tory " as an adjective.

The whole thing is like a student politics project, the Union came about because they managed to bankrupt themselves on a pipe dream sold to many by a few, sound familiar.........
