Scottish Independence.

Every argument I hear from the "better together" brigade has the phrase "How will Scotland survive independently outside the security of the UK"?

The question I would like those in favour of Independence to ask is.
How is the rest of the UK going to survive without the security of all revenues from Scotland?
We do not only have oil, we also have an ever growing revenue from whiskey, and if we played our cards right in or out of the European Union, we have one of the greatest fishing stocks within that union which is being ruined by unnecessary quotas from Brussels.
If we got Independence we should, and could protect our fishing stocks from the European fishermen who are just waiting to plunder and destroy our stocks just as they did their own.

Another benefit to an in dependant Scotland would be, not to have the burden of London consuming our welfare budget, what with the highest rental market for the unemployed and the dearest house prices for MPs who scrounge money from the taxpayers to pay for their homes and sell them for their own gain.

Scotland contributes billions more to the UK coffers than they get in return, and where is the money spent other than London?
On the road and rail network throughout England, stopping at the Scottish border, the proposed high speed track being one example.
So if you are a Tory MP, or spend lots of time travelling in England, or think you might benefit from the extravagance of London, be it welfare or property dealing, then "better together" could be for you.

If on the other hand you are a TRUE Scot and grudge every penny that crosses the border to boost the UK coffers that fall into the hands of rich Tories who have not one clue on how to put it to good use, or help Scotland, then you should seriously be thinking of voting for Independence.

We are more than capable of standing alone, which is more than the scaremongers from England can do, that is why they are so against an independent Scotland.
Without our money they will have a bigger struggle on their hands to sort out their deficit than they have now.
As for Scotland. We can rise above it all, we have the wealth to do so.
I do feel sorry for the proud Scots who, through no choice of their own, who have to work and live in England, or elsewhere, even if they are likely return someday, still do not get the chance to vote and express their feelings on how the country of their birth should be governed.

How generous of George Osborne in his attempt to make things easier for the people of Britain to purchase their own homes.
Its a pity we could not all go down the same route as him and use taxpayers money to buy, then sell with a £500,000 profit to pocket, with no repayments whatsoever to the coffers.
How he has the nerve, and arrogance to stand up in front of Parliament and come out with statements such as he did, after ripping us off, beggars belief.
Then again what else should we expect from a Tory led government, whose most important goal is to, get richer, look after the rich, and trample on the poor and disabled.

The great Cypriot bank robbery.

The action of plundering Cypriot bank savings goes to prove two points.

(1) The banks cannot be trusted with our money anymore.
(2) It is proof positive that, as this was a motion put forward from Brussles through the European Union, that the EU is nothing short of being a dictatorship.

How do the banks expect us to trust them with our money when this Cypriot bank raid is an example of what to expect when our governments squander our tax and national insurance contributions.

If this robbery goes ahead it will have more severe repercussions than the option of allowing Cyprus to be declared bankrupt.

We have little trust in the banks as it is, what with the over inflated wages and bonuses of the top brass even when they are showing losses.
That along with the bail out that has led to the shambolic state of the world economy, I think it would be very foolish of any bank, or EU proposal to go ahead with this theft of honest hard working peoples money.

It is totally ludicrous to think that when a government squanders its own coffers, accumulated by their taxpayers, that they can plunder the same taxpayers savings, all of whom knew how to budget and save for a rainy day, unlike the elected idiots that we get lumbered with nowadays.
It is a sad day when the banks that we thought were keeping our money safe can not only close to prevent any withdrawals, but can steal from us too.

If this raid is successful in Cyprus, then it can happen to savers anywhere in the world, and it will probably be only a matter of time before it is enforced somewhere else.
European leaders had better beware, because people do not stand for these disgraceful actions anymore and it will lead to mass riots, brought on by the incompetence of government and banking policies.
The next thing you will hear on the news will be them wondering why it is happening, decrying the riots and coming out with some pathetic reason as to why the ministers who are the cause of them in the first place, should be listened to.
Europe had better watch out, or it won't just be Arab uprisings that will be grabbing the headlines.
There is already RIOT in the spelling of Cypriot, soon it will be on the streets, and rightly so.
As for the dictatorship of Europe, it will eventually crumble just like all the other attempts of country unification.
The USSR and Yugoslavia to name but two.
