At least her Solitaire account used to post music videos when she was blootered in the early hours.

Doesn't she still owe money to one of the Hibs fans over a hilariously failed bet?

So would an indy Scotland use the UK Pound?

Would an Indy Scotland create its own currency?

Don't be silly.  Can you imagine Scotland had its own bank notes?

What would they even look like?

If it wanted to and it could tie it to sterling for as long as it liked

The Irish punt was tied to sterling until the seventies

Aye, they did.

My source

"Scottish money was abolished as a circulating currency at the Act of Union in 1707.However, the valued rent of land , and in many places, feu duties and ministers stipends , schoolmaster`s salaries,  and other parochial payments were still reckoned  by the pound Scots and the merk, or mark, for some considerable time after theUnion. But payment was made in English pounds sterling.

 

Both the English and the Scottish pound  was made up of twenty shillings, each of twelve pence. Thus there were 240 pence in a pound. But there were 12 Scots pounds to the English pound. The merk was 2/3rds of a Scottish pound or 13 shillings and fourpence."

If you have any evidence to the contrary please oblige.

Aye and oil rigs and production platforms where the real money is being frittered away by Westminster.

An independent Scotland is worse than a Scotland in the United Kingdom of of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Wasn’t Ghandi virulently racist towards black people?

Some people say so, though on the evidence I would say he was substantially less racist than Churchill (though people who complain that "you're not allowed to say nuffing in this country" would tell me I'm not allowed to say that).

The OPer said 'all nationalism is bad cos it's bad and all nationalists are bad cos nationalism is bad. Cos it is.' I felt that lacked, y'know, nuance. And logic.

I'm so completely sick to death of the zoomers on both sides of this debate.

To my mind Independence is inevitable once the Scottish people wake up to the amount of financial no lube screwing we get from Westminster, you only have to travel around the Tory dominated southern and home counties to see where the money is being spent.

The HS2 railway project is now up to an estimated £56 Billion cost and did you know that Scotland has to provide 10% of that money out of our budget even though the line will never reach Scotland!  The Chancellor sets Westminster spending priorities then it's worked out how much will be spent in england before allocating a percentage of the spend to all the home nations. So we will pay for something we will never see, feckin fantastic eh and there's something you Unionists support, fools all.

£34 Billion plus another £10 Billion set aside for overrun for a nuclear missile system where the UK are not allowed to service the guidance systems but see that they are sent back to the states for the service, another feckin waste of money and another no lube shafting!

£15 Billion for the London Crossrail rail project.

Billions spent needlessly acting as if they were still an Empire with two new aircraft carriers while our hospitals and NHS are falling apart.

Westminsters Scottish oil and gas tax revenue from 1978 to 2015 comes to £64.2 Billion.

Now look around your towns and cities  here in Scotland and tell me about all the grandiose big money projects that has been part funded by that oil revenue.

Wakey feckin Wakey or continue dropping yer troosers and smile as you get shafted and laughed at.
