Thread Name: BS: scottish independence
Subject: RE: BS: scottish independence
True, The UK would be better off without their drain on resources.

However, I keep trying to argue that it is folly to have a referendum when not a single set of "this is what it will look like" scenarios has been put forward for voters to consider.

The whole thing seems to be a combination of ugly nationalism and giving the present UK government a bloody nose.

Instead of saying where the money and trade will be coming from, the SNP just prattle on about promises they can't make regarding subjects not in their gift to promise.

If an independent Scotland can make a better Scotland without making a worse UK, brilliant.

But nobody has explained how that might work..

If I thought the majority of people living in Scotland believed promises from politicians when asking for their vote, I'd set up a shop in Edinburgh selling snake oil and long weights.
