What did the world's most respected economists say about Scottish independence?
Warning to unionists - you won't like this.
“I’m for it. Why? Because the UK growth model is unsustainable and Scotland can do better than simply subsist on inter-regional transfers.” - Mark Blyth.

Everything is just cheap tricks. A post yesterday from a yoonie (msp?) had a pic of a Scottish independence gathering, long after the end time and crowds had dispersed with a derisory “massive crowds” comment.
What or who does this serve. Just a message to the other yoonies?

The whole idea of Scottish independence is to reduce big government.
So the notion that the election of a Labour Government is a viable alternative to independence is frankly laughable.
Labour literally invented nanny-statism & specialise in totalitarianism.
Labour? No way!

Only a rabid Scottish/Irish Nationalist, an anti-English bigot or a criminally irresponsible clown would suggest the way forward is to place Scotland on the same footing as Northern Ireland, a region torn apart for years by sectarian slaughter. Which one is Kenny, do we think?

If you’re arguing about which is better: mls or Scottish premiership you’re arguing the wrong thing.
There’s no teams in the world like Celtic or Rangers that Johnston will get that level of exposure, he’ll experience much more than at any mls club.

Scottish indy must transform the lives of scots or it's not worth having.
It must be an alternative to British capitalism, not a scottish copy of it.
Indy was closer when it offered a country that rejected the but focused on making our lives better.

If Sturgeon wants to use the next GE to break up the United Kingdom then surely she would need over 50% of the entire UK electorate to vote SNP/Scottish Greens. The fact that they don't field candidates in every constituency in the country is their problem.

So Westminster are democratic deniers & have deemed this acceptable & moved on!
