The night before the day of decision in Scotland

Filed under: Personal, Scotland, Scottish Independence — derryvickers @ 8:48 pm

Two articles in yesterday’s Scotsman had just the opposite effect on me than they were aimed at.

Peter Jones – http://www.scotsman.com/news/peter-jones-blind-nationalism-doesn-t-add-up-1-3542672

Hugh Reilly – http://www.scotsman.com/news/hugh-reilly-a-chance-to-end-artificial-alliance-1-3542673

Peter Jones makes the point that the SNP finances don’t balance – he would vote Yes if the SNP was honest and admitted it but they say just the opposite – everything will be hunky-dory after Independence; which of course they won’t and that’s why he will vote No to help the people who will be in deep financial difficulties thereafter.

Hugh Reilly goes into raptures about little Scotland under Robert the Bruce beating the proud English with an army twice his size at Bannock Burn. He fails to say that proud James IV was routed by the English at Flodden Field a couple of hundred years later.  Let’s hope the same doesn’t befall proud Alex Salmond.

Anyway we shall hear the result of the Referendum soon enough tomorrow night. In either result Scotland and rUK will never be the same again.
