my anaconda don’t want none unless you’re cool and nice
and before I get any anons telling me I’m only voting Yes out of hatred for the English: I have lived in the same house as an English person for 15 years and still do. Half of my family are English and live in London. The woman who I consider to be my gran is English and has just moved back to London from Glasgow.
I have had a lot of English influence in my life and I can 100% tell you people voting yes aren’t doing it to fuck the English or because Alex Salmond is tuggin at oor wee heartstrings. We’re voting Yes because we believe our country can stand on it’s own and come out the other side.
I am 100% NO vote.
I’ll try and keep it short: Alex Salmond is not just a tool, he’s a complete Tool Box.
Scotland want financial and political independence, but the SNP want the Pound Sterling currency, meaning that they’ll need financial regulation from the Bank of England and a political union with Westminster. Its complete bullshit.
Secondly, Salmond is tugging at people’s heartstrings rather than providing them with facts and figures. He’s telling the people that Westminster is treating Scotland as a second class citizen, not providing Scotland with the money and freedoms it requires. This is also complete bullshit.
Scotland actually receive beneficial treatment from the British Government - they get things for free (such as Elderly Care, Prescriptions and Tuition) that English citizens pay for, and actually receive more money than half of England. But the SNP are going for the emotional side of things, and getting people to vote YES because Patriotism!
Thirdly, everything is based on "If". If the oil continues. If they get the pound sterling. If they get into the European Union. If they keep the large business around. If they keep the banking sector in Scotland and so on and so forth.
- It has been known for a very long time the Oil is going to run out in our lifetime.
- They may not qualify to enter the European Union and possibly could not afford it (it costs tens of millions a day to be part of the EU).
- Large businesses use the UK has a jumping off point for trade with the EU, and companies like IBM and Amazon may move.
- The banks (such as Lloyds and RBS) have stated that a YES vote would send their operations to London, as they are regulated by the Bank of England and need that gateway to the EU.
For me in England, it means less than two hours North of where I live, I’ll have a solid border. It means that everyday items may become more expensive for me to purchase as Scotland leaving would lower the value of the Sterling, and it means the North of the Island would feel even more abandoned as businesses based in Scotland move South to London.
If anyone Scottish reads this, VOTE “NO”.
Salmond is being lead by the nose by shadowy SNP politicians, and he himself has not given you ANY solid information regarding the above issues. Hell, Westminster finally bent over and agreed to give Scotland the Financial and Political independence they wanted if they stayed in the Union, and he basically told the British government to fuck off.
He doesn’t even know WHAT THE CURRENCY WILL LOOK LIKE.
Vote NO. Keep the Union together. We are one of the single most powerful countries in the world for a damn good reason, and its not because some fat nationalist prick put a spanner in the works.
Wowwww the ignorance.
First off, of course we want the pound, we have the Bank of Scotland which produces the same currency, Scotland set up the Bank of England in the first place.
We have always been treated second class by England! Treated like guinea pigs! In world war 2, you tested Anthrax on our Gruniard island, killing our livestock and leaving it uninhabitable to this day! Thatcher tested the community charge out on Scotland first!
Now Westminster is vowing if theres a no vote theyll give us more powers. They also said that in 1979 about the devolution. There was a no vote and Scotland got NOTHING. Oh wait… We got Margaret Thatcher!
We have soooo much more than oil (and it alone is worth well over a trillion) we have billions to make in tourism, technology, food and also, renewable energy.
I can tell you now that the EU would be foolish to kick us out, considering Scotland alone has 60% of the entire EU’s oil and gas reserves.
Lloyds and RBS’s office is already registered in London anyway! That was yet another scare story by the no vote party.. Also, that sort of information shouldnt be be broadcast until after the referendum result! PROOF its scare mongering!
Lastly, you are English, how can you seriously say “if you are Scottish and reading this, vote no!” No one should dictate to someone what to vote, ESPECIALLY not someone in another country.
Scotland never agreed to a union in 1707 in the first place, remember that.
Also, please back up your claims with actual sources.
As a Scot, I am completely and totally fed up of the English telling me how to vote.
If you are an English born person living in Scotland, fair play, I’ll listen to you because you get a vote. But as an English person living in England? Please do not tell me how to vote on the future of MY OWN country.
And friendly reminder, a vote for independence is NOT a vote for Alex Salmond, nor is it a vote for the SNP. If we gain independence we can vote them out of office if we wish because we will have COMPLETE control over who runs OUR OWN country for a change.
Pennsatucky is such an interesting character. She’s done some horrible things, and the reason she got into religion is fucked up, but there’s just something really human about her, being treated by shit by those around her and finally finding something that people are commending her for. And not wanting to let go of that. And not really understanding that what she’s doing is wrong; even so, she has educated Piper quite significantly. Season one portrayed her as an all-out antagonist, but I feel with season two we’re beginning to see more of her, understanding her more. And I feel like she’s learning, and imporinb upon herself. I’m really excited for what season three has to offer to Pennsatucky.
bro, we are tuesday again. problem?
