Again, I am not getting dragged into this, but I have just a small point to add.

 

Joe, you persist in reminding us that independence is nothing to do with the SNP and we can vote them out afterwards etc etc.

 

You neglect to mention that the very existence of an independent Scotland will be soley formed and forever shaped by the SNP who are driving the issue at present.

 

Why cant you see that the two are inseparable. Independence at this time IS the SNP they are one in the same.

 

Oh,, and the SNP are arrogant f***ing liars. There will be no pound, and no free entry into the EU regardless of what the fat pie says.

 

And with that,, I`ll say bye

going to be a busy day,

Scotland will not be allowed to share the pound with the rest of the UK if it chooses independence, the three main Westminster parties are to warn as pro-unionists turn up the pressure ahead of the September vote.

George Osborne, the chancellor, and Danny Alexander, the Liberal Democrat Treasury chief secretary (according to people close to the government’s thinking), and Ed Balls, Labour’s shadow chancellor (party officials have confirmed), will all deliver separate warnings that Scotland should not expect to form a currency union with the UK in the event of independence. The move takes away one of the central planks of the Scottish National party’s policy platform.


he warnings mark an escalation of the unionist rhetoric, with all three big parties at Westminster having thus far said only that it would be “very difficult” to form a currency union with an independent Scotland rather than ruling it out altogether.

The moves comes as polls show the independence cause gaining ground on the unionist side.

The SNP has made it a crucial part of its vision of independence that Scotland would be able to share the pound, rather than having to join the euro or establish its own currency.

The reports that Westminster’s leading parties would join in ruling out independence drew a sharp reaction from Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s deputy first minister.

She said: “This is an unprecedented and extraordinary bid by the Westminster establishment to lay down the law to Scotland, which will backfire spectacularly. But the reality is the Tory chancellor and his Labour and Lib Dem helpers are all over the place, with their briefing fast unravelling.

“First, we were told George Osborne was going to rule out a currency union, but now it is being reported that he will outline a Treasury paper with a series of tests and conditions which would be their starting point in negotiations to secure a sterling area.

“That is a very long way from what was initially briefed, and simply underlines the fact that the Treasury themselves know – whatever the bluff and bluster of Westminster politicians – that a shared sterling area is overwhelmingly in the rest of the UK’s economic interests following a Yes vote.”

The Westminster parties believe that the intervention by Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, last month, makes it plausible for them to rule out a currency union.

During a visit to Edinburgh, Mr Carney highlighted the difficulties of a currency union between the two countries, saying: “A durable, successful currency union requires some ceding of national sovereignty.”

While Alex Salmond, the SNP leader, welcomed that speech, the Westminster parties believe it has given them enough scope to reject outright his vision of a eurozone-style currency union underpinned by a deficit limit.

Mr Osborne last week gave a flavour of his economic argument to the House of Lords economic affairs committee when he said: “Alex Salmond’s claims about the currency were pretty effectively demolished by the governor of the Bank of England.”

So, Sturgeon knows best eh? You seem to think every word that comes from her or Salmond's lips is gospel.. They've been found out and proved as liars (which you have failed to even acknowledge every time its been brought up..) yet you post here every time they come out with a snippet.. Honestly, they are making themselves look more pathetic with every peice of bitter rhetoric they spew, talking about being bullied when anyone says something they don't want to hear etc.. I honestly think the more they carry on like that the more harm they're going to do their cause.. Chucking your toys out of the pram in a temper ain't exactly the best image to portray..
