  1. the fight against progress and democracy continues.
  2. I assume you forgot to add.....in the early 18th century
  3. A schism by goodness? Probably not....... But he is just another unelected self entitled windbag who should have no relevance to the people of Scotland. The fact that as an Anglican lord spiritual he does hold political power over our affairs speaks for itself. The UK is joined by of a small select catalogue of countries in the world these days that allow unelected religious leaders political control over the populace. More to the point.......Scotland is the only nation in the world that is forced to allow religious leaders of a foreign denomination political control over it's affairs. Get them tae.....
  4. Lol....I look forward to your interesting take on things. Fan is a bit much tbh. Btw it was big team Murdo who let the cat out the bag......again.
  5. All once again a very good display of your opinion......but what do you make of the leader of the Scots Tories spelling out recently all the things the UK will lose when Scotland becomes independent. The inverse being everything iScotland will gain. His logic would suggest iScotland will do a bit better than "neutral in terms of performance"
  6. Here is a full clip of the interview lest anyone dispute. Oh dear.
  7. Exactly. Devolved tax varying powers do not work. Its a bodge.
  8. Ermm.......it's not discussed because Jonathan Shafi, whilst being an intelligent man, is a political blogger with no political responsibility. More so.....he does not question the substance of Scottish independence which he correctly concludes will be long term beneficial to us all. The article he has written questions the strategy of attainment....which is a perfectly legitimate point to debate. However: in contrast .....Murdo Fraser is probably not an intelligent man as he has let the cat out the bag for you lot yet again. However, in contrast to Shafi he does have political responsibility being the leader of the UK government in Scotland.......and he has completely [email protected] your argument. In his interview above, intended for the wider UK audience (not for folk in Scotland cos obviously naebody here watches GB news), he makes the case for Scottish independence better than any yes campaigner. He tells the rest of the UK exactly what they stand to lose when Scotland becomes independent. The inverse understandably being what we will gain. This....from the leader of the UK gov party in Scotland. Car crashing the unionist argument.....even before the start of any campaign. Poor man.....Watch his eyes when the interviewer infers the rest of the UK might want rid of us. ......btw listen to his use of "we".....interesting insight into the unionist mindset.
  9. Just a quick off the cuff thought....for example..... nationalisation of the crown estates and the associated leasing rights. An absolute windfall for the public purse given Scotland's shoreline. This is the kind of policy a UK government would never consider
  10. The above has some validity. UKIP (a total irrelevance in Scotland btw and no real threat to the wider political landscape)......were starting to eat in to the right wing of the Conservative party. The Tories feared haemorrhageing votes to them in Midland and Southern marginals. Cameron tried to head them off and silence the Eurosceptics in his own party with the referendum. He obviously failed drastically. It was all about saving the Tory party.
  11. This is idiotic. Brexit is a direct result of the decades long conflict within the Conservative party between the crazy English/British nationalist wing and the old pro Europe one nation branch. One nation Cameron held a referendum to call out the crazies. The crazies appealed to the base instincts of the double digit IQ masses and the crazies won. [email protected] all to do with Scotland...everything to do with an idealogical struggle within a foreign political party........but we are stuck with a decision.....not made by us.....that will do decades of harm to us.
  12. After all that has happened in the last 8 years its a bit of a brass neck for the britnat side to go on about the "uncertainty" of independence. You raised two huge issues which I have emboldened above. The first issue on obviously affects the wider international economy and whilst maybe not caused by the policies of HM gov.... its consequences are certainly exarcebated. Of the second point there is no doubt. Westminster is completely to blame for us getting dragged out the EU against the wish of the vast majority of Scots. Huge issues, continuing to impact on the lives of everyone in Scotland....and yet decisions are made for us that are clearly not for the benefit of the Scottish economy and inspite of Scottish public opinion. We are not even an afterthought for these [email protected] at Westminster. That's uncertainty.
  13. It will be good to be able to make that decision based on what's best for Scotland and the Scottish economy.......rather than have it made for us to our impoverishment.
  14. The idea that Scotland's media is in any way balanced when it comes to independence or accurately reflects the beliefs of at least 50% of the population is hilarious. Pure comedy.
