Thread Name: BS: Whither now England?
Subject: RE: BS: Whither now England?
Post from Dazbo isn't worth commenting on! Musket of course the rest of the UK would have to agree to a currency union. The SNP have simply said it is their favoured option (not their only option) and they would look to negotiate for that. They believe that the current UK gvt's position is simply a campaign tactic. That doesn't mean that the UK gvt would actually agree to it should there be a Yes vote. Yes voters know that is the case - they just feel it hasn't been really considered and is being used as a scare tactic - but it is a scare tactic which isn't working anyway! Even in the wake of the first debate when Darling performed well over said issue and Salmod fluffed his lines most polls still showed a closing of the gap.

As to the idea that the only reason for voting Yes is because they are anti-Cameron is silly and just shows non-comprehension on your part as to how many Scots feel. Many feel that having an independent Scotland is the best way to both take the country forward and build the type of society they want. I think it is clear by now that you don't agree with that, and simply find it hard to comprehend it, but it is what many Scots think all the same. Scottish Labour's stance, and they were even making it last night in the debate whilst sitting on their panel with the leader of the Scottish Consevatives, is that they can produce the kind of society the SNP envisage by winning the UK election. The Best Of Both Worlds as they say. The trouble is they can't guarantee an election win; even if they did they can't guarantee pushing further devolution through Westminster, and of course finally the question - if we are Better Together then why aren't we already Better Together? They've had chances a-plenty.
