Hey guys, David Cameron has just said on TV that if Scotland wants a referendum for Independence, he will fight it with 'every fibre of his being!' Hmmmm!
Cameron's a bombastic idiot. What right has he got to interfere in Scotland's affairs? - Absolutely none. If anything his intervention would only get people's backs up, given how much the Tories are loved in Scotland - not!
And, speaking of a Referendum, someone on the Radio (English) felt that the Scots should not be allowed to do this on their own, that the English should have a say.
I think that IF the Scottish people did vote in favour of independence, only then should England, along with Wales and N. Ireland have a say in whether or not they'd agree to this country seceding from the Union, in which case Wales and N. Ireland probably couldn't care less, while as far as a lot of English people are concerned it would be a case of 'good riddance'.
However, I think that what most Scots, myself included, really want is more powers for Holyrood but not a break-up of the Union, because (a) it's not in the country's best interests, and (b) breaking the Union would not be very straightforward. Seceding now would involve constitutional changes in the UK as well as financial and business issues. The process therefore could be a long drawn-out affair.
... you know already it highly irritates me that Scots are entitled to the same things as English residents in England yet the English in Scotland are not entitled to stuff like Scottish free education, I imagine it will only get worse with the SNP.
Are you seriously trying to tell me that English people resident in Scotland don't enjoy the same rights as the Scots? For the moment at least English residents have every entitlement to free state education, free prescriptions, the benefits of Council Tax freezes, and free care for the eldery.
For your information, three English people I know well who are resident in Edinburgh voted for the SNP, the reason being that they are happy with the way the SNP have been running the country and were not impressed with what the other parties had to offer.
