Okay let me expalin, Scotland has the highest number of health issues within the Union and you are reliant on British Tax payers to finance the health
services within your country. If you succeed and gain independence, the cash from England dries up. Maybe not immediately, because no doubt your Mr
Salmond will negotiate a parachute payment of some kind. However, it will dry up at some stage and I reckon you will be struggling within 15-20 years
With regards to the royal question, ufortunately Mr Salmond has alreadey decreed that the Queen will remain head of state, so the ties relating to
said family will remain firmly in place. You will have your own form of national security, of course you will and that will bring all the wrong kind
of people to the fore.
Do you honestly believe that England would be far worse off than we are currently, if Scotland achieve independence? If you had independence when RBS
hit the rocks, you would be seriously bankrupt, unless you adopted Iceland's tactics, however you would be as isolated as that country is currently.
Okay we all applauded when they decided not to pay the money back to the international community, but they are castigated because of it.
So I am not a troll, I believe I made a valid point with my initiall post, however all I hear from the Scots is National Jingoism, how far greater you
would be as a nation. Real independence would be removing the shackles of the Royals, becoming self reliant and building your industries to compete on
a global scale. As it stands, I have not heard or seen how Mr Salmond intends to make this happen.
That is all
