Sorry are you saying that westminister is going to retrospectively change laws to make actions of the government legal??"


No, I am saying that the Act of Union 1707 could be altered and changed by subsequent legislation / Acts of Parliament. The Parliament being the body representing the United Kingdom i.e. including Scotland. This is what happened. If not, then devolution would not have been possible in the first place.

Scotland would undoubtedly suffer for a little while if they gain independence, but I think they can quickly recover. If they give businesses incentives to come there, such as better rates than found in England for instance, it will happen. If a bunch of companies pull out of Scotland, that will simply open up new opportunities for others. That is how the free market works. Intelligent businessmen will see this and will move in. Scotland will not have to worry or suffer for all that long after gaining their independence, but there will likely be a financial crisis during this intermediary period. It will not be pretty, and it will take politicians coming together to make important decisions, and as long as everyone does what they're tasked with doing I see things working out just fine. And perhaps if things don't work out for the best, they can beg to be taken back. I don't see this as unrealistic at all, and it would be the intelligent choice to take Scotland back in the event that everything goes to hell. Creating more jobs is going to be very important as well, which is doable in various ways.

Intelligent businessmen will consider why the other companies pulled out in the first place. If they didn't, they wouldn't be intelligent businessmen.

How quickly they move in will be determined by how well any separation is handled, how quickly the economy settles, and how viable it will be to operate that business from an independent Scotland.

Actually I was going to ask what was going to happen about BBC Scotland. Hmm, and the article says that the study was drawn up three years ago. Does anyone from the 'No' campaign have access to a Tardis?

...utter panic? It's just a subsidy that is being removed. How is that panic?

It seems petty to raise it now, but that's only because it's almost a non-issue when compared to the much bigger questions that should be addressed.

It has long been my view that women in general are more discerning than
men ....


Alex Salmond's 'female problem' or why most Scots women wouldn't trust
him to run a tea-party


www.telegraph.co.uk...


The following taken from the link .....

"It is said that female politicians can find the First Minister's manner rather
condescending and its often quite striking that he is not altogether
comfortable when being questioned by an assertive woman.

Although Salmond insists that a vote for 'independence' does not equate
to a vote for him, those who distrust the First Minister are also dubious
of his 'euphoric vision' for an independent Scotland. You get the feeling
that blokes are more inclined to get 'carried away' in the moment, and are
more inclined to take risks. Where as women are more inclined to weigh
everything up. They don't like the fact that Salmond on certain issues like
currency seems to wriggle ....
LOL!! a wriggling Salmond the mind boggles!!

Or we can just tell them to shove the Licence fee up their arses and watch the other 100+ channels we have at our disposal and catch up on BBC Iplayer for free whenever we feel like it.

Absolute tosh, recent mumsnet poll shows that women are siding with the Yes campaign rather than the Better Together campaign. Also the better together's patronising video that was more suited in the 1950's has shown just what the better together campaign think of woman in scotland.

The nationalist case for independence does actually say that the BBC will be dumped and a new public service broadcaster with a focus on Scotland will take over.

Not to worry, the nationalists go on, because as Scotland will become more (er) Scottish, the world will want to buy their programming. Then they start banging on about the Tories running the BBC and all that guff. They are careful to say that those disillusioned souls who actually like non-Scottish-themed programming will still be able to view the BBC when they strike a deal.

As a Canadian that had the same Referendum issues with Quebec in the 90's. I ask that Scotland stay within the British Kingdom. Work out your differences and evolve to a better common ground as a Nation. Sometimes the grass isn't always green on the other side. If it is greener there it is because it is lying upon a septic bed.

Polls are narrowing women are 9% more likely to vote NO than men.

42% of women are saying they plan to vote YES according to latest yougov.

survey. And more detailed polling reveals two major concerns among

women ... the financial implications of independence and whether or not

Alex Salmond is trustworthy or not.


Despite a concerted effort to woo female voters - a campaign which

included Mumsnet debate and appearances on Woman's

Hour, just 9%of women say they trust Salmond 'a lot' and only 37% admit

to trusting him at all, this compares to 50% of men who don't have any

trust in Salmond .... (what only half of all the men in Scotland trust

Salmond at all?)

This vote is not for Alex Salmond or for who will run an independent Scotland it's a vote for independence itself and that's why even though the majority don't like or trust Salmond the polls are quite tight.

There's a very good chance that Alex Salmond won't be elected as PM of an independent Scotland if we do vote Yes.

Yes but without FACTS and the correct information .... The voter could be

voting for a pipe dream?

Too late after being conned !!
