A poll of Canadians shows that half (49%) o them support Scotland's independence. Sensible fowk.

Nivir's an affa lang time.

They said there'd nivir be a majority in the Scots Parliament, that the electoral system made it impossible. It tuik us 12 years tae brak the system.

They said there'd nivir be a referendum on independence. It tuik us 5 years tae get there fae the SNP first bein elected.

Are ye still sae sure aboot independence nivir happenin?

And the thing was set up to not have a majority.  Oops, that didn't W*** as intended, did it?    Laughing

Anyway, pipedoon, with those famously great wise political thinkers like Johann Lamont and Ruth Davidson on your side, what could you possibly have to worry about?  And Margaret Curran and the otherwise utterly unheard-of Willie Bain.

Oh yes, and Michael Forsyth  as well.  Oh joy.

Well, the ability to operate economic policies designed for Scotland, rather than for the south-east of England strikes me as a good idea.  Oh, and doing really weird stuff like being able to keep taxes and revenue raised in Scotland for use in Scotland.    As opposed to helping pay for the London Olympics rubbish.

Pandering to the gay lobby?   Same sex marriage is surely a matter of equality, not "pandering" to anyone.   Nicely judgemental word, "pandering".

Council houses?   Haha, I live in Glasgow and none are built here:  they have all been handed over to the odd "Glasgow Housing Association" entity.   Glasgow Council just LOVES inventing odd entities to farm out housing, libraries and pretty much everything to.

How about having choices about getting involved or not involved in wars?  And choices about having weapons of mass destruction on the Clyde?

If we remain in the E.U., how about, instead of 6 MEPS, having a fairer number like 12 (like Ireland), or 13 (like Denmark).   Hell, at present Scotland has fewer than the 8 MEPS allocated to a mysterious region called the North West of the UK.     Rolling Eyes     I think it might mean the north-west area of England but you never know.

I am in sort of a hurry but might get back to this later.   In the meantime, I have some panda-ing to do.    Smile

Aye, we're still waiting to hear the benefits of staying.   Waiting, lots of waiting.   Oh, yeah, and a bit more waiting.     Seriously, just how much bloody waiting is necessary?   We were cheated in 1979 (and before that) and now wait again to hear of the great benefits of this union.

There has been a LOT of time in which to clarify the benefits, but so far no rational explanation forthcoming.

No problem, though, Cameron, Miliband and Clegg - there is still time to try it.  On you go.

Ach!  Bash self on head!  I got the names wrong.  I meant Davidson, Lamont and thon other bloke.   Because they are the ones making decisons for their "Scottish"parties, aren't they?    How could I possibly forget?      Embarassed
