OK there's some who've voted, but it kind of requires an explanation as to why you have your viewpoint, just having an opinion is a bit boring really, tell us why you think what you do?

Drawing parallels between SNP and those with Aspergers' is, frankly, rather an insult to those with Aspergers' syndrome...

... as an example, if Isaac Newton were around today he'd almost certainly receive a diagnosis of Aspergers', and whilst he was (as is classic) aggresively self-centered, found it difficult to empathise with the viewpoints/thought processes of others, prone to diving into a subject to the exclusion of all else...

he did at least add some value to the world, unlike Salmond in particular and the SNP in general.

Anyway... in naafi, and this combined with previous post with way too many long words for post-closing time, leaves me feeling this has overbalanced things, so perhaps I should suggest he gets a dry bumming

I think we should stay together and halfwits like Salmon permenantly removed. When BP were capping the rig in the Gulf of Mexico why couldn't they have strapped that idiot to the side of the steel shell?

Any way, as has been proven before Scotland does not want indepence. It could not survive financially on it's own, a fact that the SNP seem to forget, small population with high unemployment doesn't equal a lot of money for a Government to use. Yes, we need to think about Scotland the fact that what might be ok for the rest of the UK might not be good for Scotland but why the fcuk gives the SNP the right to think that with half a million votes they think that they have that much influence that we should be at their beck and call? Clearly Scotland doesn't like Conservatives or Lib Dems but it the majority of the UK we didn't want Labour and the popular vote showed this. It's called democracy. If you want to try for a majority enter more candidates. Untill you've got more than 1/20 of the Conservative votes go away and leave the big boys to concentrate on bigger issues.

VG, we've disagreed, but give a guy a chance, its late and I''m tired, what does this mean?

Identifying and naming adversarial hellions is fundamentally different from using their taradiddles as an instrument of rebellion. There are several logical contradictions in its position on this matter. For example, the Scottish National Party is absolutely versipellous. When it's among plebeians, the Scottish National Party warms the cockles of their hearts by remonstrating against jujuism.
It's not a piss take but a call for a pause while I consult a dictionary. ;)

Simply put, I wouldn't trust the buggers an inch.
Now that I'm beginning to increasingly agree with.

The Jocks are telling us how much we are a problem, ok crack on.

So Jocks, do you want in or out? As an Englishman I want in, but Jocks in my opinion want out.

I suggest they vote for it and lets make it real.

Go ahead and vote, I am so tired of the animosity and nastiness.

Edited for getting the wrong thread.

But Jocks, do you want in or out, I think you wan't out and as an Englishman am prepared to support your independence via my MP.

Scottish and want to stay in, thank you.

I would also like to do away with the Scottish Assembly too please!

Before Scotland voted on that issue I asked why? What is the point? A question that from what I see now has the answer " To provide jobs, power and ago massaging for a large number of second and third rate politicians. To greatly increase the number of useless, unproductive civil service roles and create the biggest embarrassment to the country since the Bay City Rollers"

In all the above, they have succeeded beyond expectations. Doing anything use full for the population, or making any improvements that could have been done by the Westminster MPs, not so much, no, can't think of anything.

The SNP want power. To get it they will blame the English, the rich the Conservatives and anyone else they think will get them a vote. Following the plan they will give everything away to stay in power and when they find the purse is empty, they will also find that true to another tradition, the rich, the Conservitives and the English have buggered off and there is no one left to tax. Some other party might make it work but not a party as deeply rooted in socialist/labour ways.

Why is it the English are more obsessed with this than we are? Most people up here have much more to worry about than what the SNP are moaning about this week, my two pence worth have a referendum and take it from there contrary to what we all think we may be surprised at the outcome and can finally put this to rest. The SNP are in power up here only as we have no other national way of voting against the Labour Party.

I lived in Glasgow 1966-69 and Moray (guess my regular service) 1974-8. There was a constant undercurrent of sour chippiness both locally and nationally (in Scotland). As far as I can see, that hasn't changed. They are all ungrateful welfare colonists. I say sod the lot of them. It's time to cut the rope.

What is this obsession with you English?

For the 4 millionth time it isn't going to happen. If and when Fishy Salmond puts it before the Scottish Parliament it will be defeated.

Since it is in the NAAFI - keep sending the money :)

I'm a bit thick when it comes to politics, and at risk of coming across naive I just wanted to offer an outsider's view.

From what I can see, Wales and Scotland want their own Parliament. I cannot see a problem with that. So why are their votes still allowed to affect the General Election? For example, if Scotland had have voted for which party they wanted running their own country (instead of this one) England would now be out and out Tory, which would have been worth it just to wipe the smug look off of Harman's face.

I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark on this one and say the reason is because of money...?

Unfortuantly Salmond has a big mouth..and he who shouts loudest is heard.

I don't know anyone who wants to break up the Union. I work in the oil industry (which despises the blike) in Aberdeen and it is very apprant that Salmond basis his entire budget on "oil money" that he expects to get from Westminister. And backdated at that!

That aint going to happen!

to nick some words off the Fidelli.................

"We dont want them........... We dont need them"



I'm sick of all the feckin' whining. let them go? how about a ENGLISH referendum on the union?

personaly I believe the unions had its day, time to split-up and do your own thing (and starve you porridge wogs, starve!)

everything go's and comes around again, everything rots in the end, time to start afresh.
maybe its time for a NEW BRITAIN, federal based, and with the Irish back in too?

Really? Read every post so far on this thread and see who's doing the whining. Clue, it wasn't the guy with the saltire avatar.

Or have you been mainlining Windowleen again?
