Call me completely out of touch and naive, but can any one of my Scottish friends tell me that Nicola Sturgeon and her party retain anything more than their own blind ambitions and dislike of the English in their political aspersions and endeavours?
They are now (in barely disguised panic mode) hell-bent on bringing in a second referendum for Scottish independence before we leave the EU. (Told ya so!)
Can we just draw back for a minute and consider the possible scenarios here? In a couple of years or so all financial income from the EU will cease. Independent or not Ms Sturgeon this most certainly includes Scotland. Assuming she has by then achieved her goal, all financial input from the rest of the UK will also have been withdrawn.
This will leave Scotland, with the only chance of any outside financial input relying on their being independently accepted into the EU, which they most certainly won’t be, and anyone who thinks otherwise is living in cloud cuckoo land.
Scotland will then be left entirely dependent on its exports, the only significant one being its rapidly dwindling supply of North Sea oil and gas – and that’s it. With the country currently already wallowing in more debt than even the beleaguered Greeks, just how long do the previously canny Scots think their country can survive with this catastrophic drop in their income? Just how long will it take for the whole country to fall into a state of desolation and economic disaster?
Five years, 10? A previously wonderful country and proud member of our magnificent United Kingdom, isolated behind a border, erected and misguidedly constructed in the name of ‘FREEDOM!’ For heaven’s sake wake up and get rid of this malignant, destructive, self-effusing party, before it really is too late. We need you ‘in’. And without doubt, dear Scotland you need both her and her party of miscreants, well and truly out. Purge the Sturge. You know it makes sense. Keep that mail coming, the ‘ol boy can still take it.
Keep the Faith
