Ah, how I missed this thread and the never ending stream of half-truths, lies and bigotry.
I still maintain that too much money and power is centered in London and the South East of England.
London and the South East generate more than 30% of the income to the public purse; they are also by far the most populated parts of the UK. I'm not sure how you think this can be altered, except by forcibly relocating people and businesses to other parts of the country.
When it comes to cuts Scotland has had more than its fare share.
As has already been demonstrated earlier, this is an outright lie.
I hope the Scottish people are brave and vote for independence perhaps then the rest of UK will have to find somewhere new to dump their radioactive waste and find a place to keep their nuclear subs.
Scotland has four nuclear power facilities, two of which are still generating power. An independent Scotland will have to find somewhere to store radioactive waste, as well as presumably pay for these facilities to be decommissioned when the time comes.
Suitable locations are driven by simple geology.
The UK government are trying their best to scare the people of Scotland every day in the papers we are bombarded by articles about how good the status quo is why are they so frightened.?
I don't think they are "frightened" as such, merely countering the spin from the pro-independence movement.
Interestingly, only 23% of people in Scotland now support independence - a fall of 9% since last year. Source
and find a place to keep their nuclear subs.
Weren't you just complaining about the wind-down of Scottish regiments?
