Sooo for anyone who hasn’t heard, Scotland is having a referendum in a few months time about independence from England. Which is groovy – referendums are always fun, right?
And obviously I’m not Scottish, and I can’t vote in this one, and everyone’s sticking their oar in, so I’ll try and keep this short and simple and sweet. Basically: I’m pro-Union.
My views have very little to do with either politics or economics. I think it likely, particularly looking at the voting patterns of the North, that Scotland despises the Conservative government just as much as I do, and I’m sorry on behalf of all England that Scotland too suffers under the weight of the puffed-up ideologue loons who currently inhabit Westminster. Will Scotland be better or worse off economically speaking if it splits from England? Dunno. Historically it hasn’t had a great time, but that was 500 years ago, so really, who’s counting? Will England be worse off if Scotland goes? Well, almost certainly, if only because we’ll have our despicable government all to our sunny selves, with fewer constituencies likely to vote them out. Save us, Scotland!
But all of this isn’t really the point.
