Good luck to them if they do it! I don't personally think it is a very wise move what with the global situation at present. The brightest will all leave when the money dries up with paying the national debt, buying an Army, Air Force, Navy, nuclear protection, their way into the EU, etc. Think we might build a wall after a few years to keep out the desperate Scots, I'm not kidding! Independence might feel great but at what cost? I would rather they stay than carry on with the Braveheart fantasy.
The thing is with the Scottish, they're too busy trying to destroy what my ancestors fought for, to look at the massive list of downsides they'll have to deal with when and if they leave.
It's rather silly to be frank.
Scots seem to think they are punishing the Brits in some way. They are not, at present both are sharing resources. When.If this stops then the Scots become our competition and us there's. I do not see how that helps either party.
Britain will only benefit from Scotland leaving the UK, and the Scottish are going to suffer for it.
I couldn't care less about Scottish wellbeing, I just want the famous UK to stay as it is, honouring the people who died on each side to make us the country we are now.
Scotland isn't going to benefit from leaving, it's some ill-guided campaign against the English, that's all.
Well not at first, no.
Scotland is just going to plummet into an isolated depression, cut off from Britain's lifeline. Everybody else can see it, yet you people are still proceeding with it.
Seriously, the economy is just picking up after years of depression, and you decided to cut yourself off from it?
Madness, and you can't even defend your precious land can you? Because you know I'm right.
I don't know tbh. It's just a shame this descision seems to be being made on the basis of emotions about each other rather than sensible logic. Maybe Scotland could be an very happy independent country. The question is would it be different if it was not us Brits, we don't help being all arrogant and all but many people are having a knee jerk reaction and spitting the dummy.
If you do go independant I'll be after one of thoese commemorative single malts : )
Scots, you and the rest of your people are deluding yourself.
Perhaps you're better off on your own, struggling to keep afloat. I'm not going to go through the massive list of downsides that it's likely Scotland with go through. You, or the rest of you people are not prepared to think up of any benefits of leaving the UK, so what is that obviously showing?
Perhaps you'll do ok, but why go into such a massive risk just to try and get one over on the English? It doesn't make sense.
Rather you than me pal.
