I've been busy painting out all the blue bits on our Union Flags, in anticipation of Scotland finally going her own way.
England has generously bailed-out Scotland for the last few hundred years (currently to the tune of £17.6 billion annually), and yon wee caber-tossers are now stumbling towards an uncertain, un-bankrolled, financial future. Hopefully she will be able to stand on her own two feet for a while without having to run cap-in-hand to the IMF, but who knows!.
I do pity an independent Scotland. They would have to apply to join the EU, and if accepted would be obliged to adopt the wretched Euro as their currency; as all new members are obliged to do. As temporary non-EU members, they would also no longer have right of abode in other EU countries. What a prospect!
I find it all very amusing. It's a bit like watching kilted Lemmings teetering on a precipice.
Och aye the noo Jimmy. Vote YES (I can't stop laughing).
