I don’t really give a shit about Scottish independence one way or another. I don’t really know enough to know whether it’s a going to be a good or a bad thing for either Scotland or the rest of the UK, never mind how we’re going to divvy up the armed forces, the national debt and all that sort of thing.
What I do know though, is that it sounds like the SNP, who really, really,
I can tell that because they say they want independence, but then they say they want a fiscal union with the entity they’re wanting to extricate themselves from.
That is not independence. Scotland could have the same as independence with a fiscal union if they got more devolution. What sort of twats would call for complete independence and then when it’s within reach start back-pedalling and want to keep themselves tied to the very state they want to leave?
Previously it’s all been about how Scotland will be fine on their own. They can cope, flourish even. Now, for some reason, it’s not about how Scotland will do, it’s about the rest of the UK, how the rest of the UK needs Scotland.
The rest of the UK, as far as I can tell (and I am well prepared to be told I am wrong, and in fact expect it), couldn’t give a fuck and think if Scotland are to go it along then do it properly. All of a sudden though, the SNP sound rather desperate not to completely cut ties from the rest of the Union.
If the SNP aren’t careful, they’re going to fuck up their own campaign and scare the Scottish population into voting no to independence.
