Scottish Independence vote

So today’s the day for the Scottish independence vote. I honestly think the yes campaign has taken far too much of an it-will-be-alright-on-the-night approach to some pretty serious questions and have left their supporters open to some nasty surprises not very far down the road. On the other hand for the independence movement to have even got this far is a pretty damning indictment of the public schoolboys and union officials that make up the Westminster ruling class and have presided over seventy years of managed decline by the UK. No matter what the result business as usual is not going to be an option.

 

Also if Scotland does become independent will there be panic buying of haggis? Because if so that would be offal.

    May I say that in my 36 years of life, I never bothered voting (bad example I know).
    I had to move to Scotland to eventually vote. Never bothered back in Portugal. 🙂
    Whatever the result, at least it got lots of people voting.

  2. As a Scottish person living in an environment saturated in referendum talk, that is by far the best joke of the day.
