The Jock vote
« on: 11 September 2014, 10:54:49 AM »
OK, I'm not politically minded and haven't been following the great debate.

But, as I live in England, how does it effect me if Scotland leaves?
Should I give a monkeys either way?

We get to make jokes about the Scots.
We get to import more oil and gas.
We are less likely to see a labour government in the near future
our exports will increase (Buckfast etc)
our imports will increase (whisky etc)
prices will go up
taxes will go up (even though they should reduce)

Ultimately, we wont notice any change from now really.

Alternatively we do a Russia, let them go their own way, invade a couple years later, and voila - Greater England!

Or look at it this way, the white population of the UK will be reduced by around about 4.5million and the Muslim population in what remains of the UK will have increased it's %share by what 20%, be worried. The Britsh Army will lose around about 25% of the regulars as will the rest of the armed forces.
Some may say why worry. I think it will be a very sad day if it happens. We may all joke about it but this is a really serious issue. I am no raving Tory/Labourite/Libdem either but just think a Tory government for the next 30 fucking years, all well and good but not if you live outside of the financial sector of London and North of the Watford Gap

Perhaps I should rephrase the question, Living in the affluent South East, should I be worried about Scotland :lol

It'll make the decision about whether to spend all day on the M1 or a couple of hours under the channel easier.  With border controls, funny money and the stirred up anti-English sentiment this whole thing has caused, going to France looks like a much better option.  Shame as I really enjoyed touring Scotland about a decade ago.

As opposed to the anti English sentiment in France. Survey out today, of all the major European countries, one countries citizens voted to kick UK out of the eu.... Yep, France...

Will a yes vote mean that we will get the daylight back that they steel from us every October when we all have to turn the clocks back just because up north its otherwise too dark in the morning for them.

Must admit though do not know why I am getting hot under the collar, well actually I do it is all this uncertainty is playing havoc in the market and having an adverse effect on the £ v € exchange rate, living on the Costa Blanca it is short changing me on my pension rate.

But I suppose what else would one expect re your reply being an Arsenal supporter :rolleyes

Personally I'm not interested in the colour of people's skin, or for that matter what their religion is.

And just in case lets be absolutely clear, the YES campaign is a 100% inclusive campaign.

Everybody is racist to a certain extent, would appear from the general feeling on here those that live down south do not really care for the Scots.
THe 1400 cases of sexual grooming/child abuse recently reported and sadly ignored by the police and socail services in Rotterham is not really doing a lot for racial harmony

If it is a 100% inclusive campaign why are Scots who live and work in other parts of the UK being excluded from the vote, just a question thats all

Because it is The Scottish people that will decide.  That is the people who live, work and contribute to Scotland.
