The Scotish question

Postby BigAl » Fri Feb 17, 2012 9:23 pm

Whats your oppinion on the ongoing discussions about Scotland having their own rule ??

Personally I think it should be up to the public in Scotland to decide and Cameron should keep his nose out of it.
The Scotish parliment should be allowed to hold the vote when they want
It should be a simple "do you want home rule" ? .. Yes or No

The rest can be sorted at a later date.

Why not? They do things differently up there anyway. Same as in Wales.
No tuition fees for students in Scotland. No prescription charges for people in Wales. England has both of these.

Ultimately, I think the Scottish people should have their say and decide how they run their country and if it means independance, so be it. Cameron has to have a say in it, as he's currently their PM but he should be listening to what the Scottish people want.

However, it seems the majority of Scotts don't want independance - though that's only what the press will have us belive, so maybe it should go to a vote. There's been quite a lot in the news lately about company's saying they'll relocate south of the border if Scotland breaks away, so their economy will suffer if they do.

As TD says, they have their own laws etc, so why not have their own government? Though I don't think having their own laws as a reason not to be governed by a British Government because in America, each state has it's own laws, yet their governed by one body. What I don't understand though is how uni fees and prescriptions can be free in Scotland and not in England when they both come under the same government. Does that mean those of us in England are subsidising Scotland? In fact England is the only country in the UK that pays for prescriptions, they're free in N Ireland, Wales and Scotland! How does that work?

I believe we are subsidising their uni fees and free precriptions and are we also paying for unemployment benefits etc.?
How else would such a small population be able to raise the revenue required?
How well would it work if this small population became independent and had to raise it's own taxes etc? :?

Let them have their referendum and if successful let them go. They stop getting their excessive subsidies from the rest of the UK, they take their share of the UK debt, they will have to accept the Euro if they apply to join the EC, etc.... Let them get on with it.
