Hhmmm, does Scotland have oil?
Yes. Currently flowing into the Westminster exchequer.

It's not a bad idea. Personally I would much rather be part of a Nordic-minded society (very Social Democratic) than the current thinking pervading England (Market Liberal). Trouble is you've got to have the resources to pay for it and I am not sure Scotland does.

I fear even more that there are no political heavyweights who can debate the issue effectively with Salmond, especially not on our side of the border.

Brilliant another thread about Sweaties becoming the Ethiopia of Europe.

How amusing, will the Scando countries actually be keen on the Sweaties after the English have run the Northsea basins dry and cut them loose?

Back in the mid-1990s, when 'New' Labour was stealing Tory policy and trying to pull together as many disparate interest groups as it could to gain enough critical mass to get themselves elected, did they really think that devolution wouldn't turn around and bite them on the arse, or did they just not care? Another not-so-little piece of treason that Blair and his cohorts should be had for.

Whether an independent Scotland is a good idea or not, I think it's desperately sad that the union could potentially end all for the sake of electing some two-dimensional chancer whose only ambition was self-interest.

Would Norway be exporting crazy gunmen across the North Sea?

Where does the X go ?

OK here are the facts:

The Scottish folk will not vote for seperation, it will vote for DevoMax.

The North Sea will not be dry for many many years.

We can sell you lots of water for a very large fee.

I dont eat deepfried mars bars, pizzas or anything from a chipshop.

I don't drink buccy, I prefer red wine with the occassional brandy.



OK you can close the thread now. :thumright: :eye:

I quite like buccy and it's very good value. Do you mix the wine with the brandy for your own version of "reck the hoose juice":)

If it turned the gopping jock women from fat sweaty gwars into blonde nordic beauties I'd be all for it.




(certain members of the present company excepted of course, having just seen a picture of FMP on the women at age 52 thread!)

I did note that the Fat Controller has stated that the vote when it comes will be only for those resident in Chilly Jocko Land at the time. So all the tame ones living in England won't get a shout.

I don't know any tame ones in England, unless they're living in Gods waiting room Devon & could'nt care less either way.

The oil is all owned by private companies, isn't it?

And if they say bye-bye England, do they also say bye-bye to our money as well or will they just get it through an EU back door? Will the EU even take on such a young, immature country or will they be on their own til they can govern themselves?

All this is beside the point anyway; HM Queen would still have to approve the change in the Union. And I'm not convinced she will as she's rather fond of the place apparently.

(ps The Irish had an armed struggle before they extracted - since the Scottish National Liberation Army's most decisive action to date is the graffiti of a derelict house between Peterhead and Aberdeen I'm not convinced they're up to that...)
