Let's keep it simple.... here is the most of the thread in one post....
YES - We don't want Conservative Governments all the time
NO - Errr, the last Government was Labour and this one is a coalition
YES - We can live off the proceeds of oil
NO - Err, isn't the oil running out and the income received each year declining?
YES - We will be better off.
NO - How? The White Paper tells us how much tax will be cut and how spending will be increased, but that only equals deficit. To break even then there will have to be higher taxes or less spending.
YES - We will keep the Pound Sterling.
NO - Err, no. You have been told by the leaders of all the major UK parties that will not happen. Also, the strong feeling against such a move by the people of the rUK will not allow that to happen. Feel free to use the Pound Sterling as an outside nation but not under any currency union.
YES - We will stay in the EU, we are already members.
NO - Err, no. The UK is a member state, if you choose to leave the UK then you leave the EU until you reapply and are accepted in as a new state.
YES - We can afford to go independent.
NO - How do you know that? The SNP will not give the costing that they promised they were working on 2 years ago.
YES - La, la, la, la, la
NO - Exactly!! Living in Lala Land!
