ukip is still getting support?? what the hell what the hell what the hell
Your main source of revenue is the offshore oil production that is limited and will run out in the near decade. Please educate yourself on your nations issues and do not make this about Scottish pride. I know your probably a pleasant individual and I agree with you on the issue of altering the news for ones benefit but do not spread misinformation and stoop to their level. If you gain independence then so be it, that is your choice but consider the consequence of doing so. Part 2 of message
Alright, firstly judging by your use of the word ‘your’, you don’t live here so you don’t really get an opinion.
But on top of that, you’re talking nonsense.
- “You will lose the british pound which is higher the the Scottish currency”
- "Your main source of revenue is the offshore oil production that is limited and will run out in the near decade."
even without oil we have a huge potential for renewable energy, a large fishing industry, and an incredibly talented creative industry and that’s just the tip of the iceberg to be honest with you
on top of that, scotland pays more to westminster than it gets back - we’ve been paying for english debt for the past 30 years. they get away by telling us we’re subsidy junkies by playing dumb with figures.
- "Please educate yourself on your nations issues and do not make this about Scottish pride"
it’s not about scottish pride. it’s about the fact that we have people in a first world country starving to death and using foodbanks when we’ve got all this wealth.
it’s about the fact that we’re a country that isn’t allowed to have a say in how it’s run.
it’s about the fact that we hand over our paycheck to westminster and they give us pocket money back.
it’s about the fact that if we don’t get independence, we’re going to have our taxes raised just to keep our NHS free.
it’s about the fact that we’ve been through this before, we voted for devolution in 1979, we were denied it, and we were punish for dissenting afterwards.
it’s about the fact that the next election is looking like a ukip/tory coalition and that terrifies me.
it’s about the fact that we deserve to have a say in our future.
it’s about the fact that westminster is letting people die while they claim expenses.
this isn’t about scottish pride. this is about doing the right thing.
scotland voted for its independence on thurdsay and overall it was a no vote with only 45% of people voting yes (there are suspicions of vote rigging but that’s a whole other post). in glasgow, however, the results were over 50% yes, which seems to have given the violent unionists an easy target.
glasgow already has a huge problem with violence, particularly sectarianism, which is the root of a lot of the violence happening right now. the orange order, a unionist protestant organisation notorious for violence against catholics, have been ‘celebrating’ their win with violence against supporters of scottish independence as well as catholics or anyone they believe to be catholic.
far-right unionist groups such as britain first and the EDL (the latter of whom are literally neo-nazis) have also taken to the streets and are targeting independence supporters and POC, particularly glasgow’s large muslim community.
there have been reports of stabbings, beatings, buildings being set on fire and even people being set on fire but of course none of these reports have been confirmed because the pro-union media refuse to report that people on their side can do any wrong. the few reports i have seen have shifted the blame onto yes voters.
My yes voting neighbours car has just been smashed by a squad of 12 no voters. It’s suspected they’ve smashed about 4 more on the way. My uncle almost got attacked for trying to chase them off. I’m in Livingston and the police are not coming
This is not Glasgow this is 35 miles away
Please everyone in Scotland brace yourselves and hide all yes stickers
there have been riots in East Lothian and possibly other areas near Edinburgh last night (but it’s hard to tell since no ones reporting) and its confirmed there were ambulances there, people may have been hurt (again, we have no way of knowing.)
Please PLEASE do not give the no voters any reason to attack tonight. Don’t display your yes posters and badges and stay away from glasgow
