few things for you see think about pal.0 Replies 211 weeks
Foolish party, yet again with your independance, Or not, I never did pay attention in history..
i didnt either, i got of my high horse and read about it . research .
you beleive what your told, have you reserched any of this to make a proper educated dicission,
independence is going to happen, Documents you should look at like the mcrone report, (why did the unionist Gov have this hidden for 30 years ,
only to come out through the freedom of information act/
you think that the world is fair, that the rich are not kept rich and the poor, poor
do you think scotland with
oil tartan whiskey timber tourism etc a huge national I.D of its own does'nt make the coin to look after 6 milion people
or England which sells , well not alot , with a population of 60 million
who makes the money. all goes to the treasury, and distributed by need, they need us, we dont need them.
, need I remind you all that in this current day and age we need not another crisis.
Trade, reasons, you not think people around the world will be re-nigotiosiating there terms of trade with us? all our exports are wanted around the world.
so you may not wish to be reminding anyone till you think for yourself.
ill lay out current situation for you,
crisis, Gordon brown causes recession, cant fix it, want to cut a £1b from out budget over 2 years, causing you guessed it Job loses. more people
on the dole.
as part of uk we are allied to an illegal war, america and so britian is at war or near war with, Athganistan Iran Iraq Russia and North korea.
where are all these contreys, and wheres america.
now Trident, nuculear based missles in submerines, (we dont have the codes, we have to ask america for them)
now if anyone decides to fight , like eg) korea (kim jong il, a man who wants to nuke his own contrey)
where are we, mm right in the middle, you think america wont launch from here, and you think they wont know that, and attack us 1st?
look up cuban missle crisis, kinda similar.
now the scottish people have voted against trident , but the uk GOv are not listening,
David cameron was quoted saying along the lines off, scotland should not interfere in the uk's nuculear defense agenda,
we are directly involved, we pay for it, and all of these uk based subs are based in faslane, glasgow.
so why do we want to be the target.
you still .want to tell people that your view is correct
Regardless what you say, this movement is not for the benefit of our nation or indeed others,
this is a grudge held over something our ancestors settled.
our ancestors settled it yes, but as you may want to read about a (Parcel of rouges in Nation)
we where sold like slaves. back to England by land owners. and it was punishable by death not to submit.
Forget history, Forget political jargon, look at the issues , and what the people want, cause they are worse than not being asked ,
it is denied to them . see. Calman commison, unionist steering group,
i hope you are not to stubourn to see what we see.
Foolish party, yet again with your independance, need I remind you all that in this current day and age we need not another crisis. I admit seperation has its advantages but think of the disadvantages, for example. being Britains only supply for certain needs, most of the UK would have to miraculously get some from elsewhere or make their own, which has been proven impossible.1 Reply 213 weeks

Think about what you're doing SNP, this could be the biggest mistake this country has made since like ever.
Think about it.
On a rare day off work after a day of standing at bloody polling stations (with absolutely no Labour presence in sight, may I add), I've been sitting watching the reshuffle on BBC News. Unfortunately, the extent of the reshuffle thus far has been to give Alan Johnson a job he didn't want in the first place, with the only significance to Scotland being the continued use of Jim Murphy to marginalise Iain Gray.0 Replies 215 weeks
However, I have watched a succession of Cabinet Ministers explaining why Gordon Brown isn't actually fucked really, honest guv. Indeed, this is actually an opportunity for Brown to demonstrate his authority over the PLP in the aftermath of James Purnell's resignation statement. So, at a time when our Darling Chancellor's been caught with his hand in the till after telling us all on budget day to grin and bear the recession, what better way for Brown to exert his authority than to let him keep his job?
Darling reportedly told Brown that he'd quit the Cabinet if he was moved from the Treasury. Following the resignations of Blears, Smith, Purnell and now Hutton, the fact of the matter is that Brown has to keep Darling on in some capacity, so his hand has been forced. The warning signs were already there when he brought Mandy back into the fold, but it should now be clear to everyone that Brown's Cabinet is solely comprised of "the best of the rest" from the Blair era.
It's often said that we need a strong government to deal with the recession (although the notion of a weak government ever being required is fairly stupid). With Brown's complete lack of authority, resources and allies becoming ever more apparent, the motion put forward by ourselves & Plaid Cymru to dissolve parliament has every chance of going through, with Cameron & Clegg now calling for GE in TV interviews.
What we as SNP members must remember though, is that similar events occurred in 1979 when the SNP held the balance of power in the vote taken against Jim Callaghan's government. Due to our support of the No Confidence motion, the Labour Party have regularly blamed us (Tartan Tories) for allowing Thatcher to get in at the resultant GE (naturally ignoring that the GE was due anyway and that Thatcher won because the English voted for her).
Being so close to another election, the English council/ European election results will give us a strong indication of the kind of majority the Tories are going to return at Westminster when the GE comes. With this in mind, the question of whether James Purnell's resignation is indicative of the PLP's mood towards Brown is entirely irrelevant. The Cabinet has already imploded and the PLP, along with everyone else in Britain, knows the government is doomed.
In Scotland, a vote for anyone other than the SNP will not overhaul the Tory onslaught in England, so from this, we need to be absolutely clear in pointing out to the electorate that the Tories are coming and the ONLY way to avoid a repeat of the Eighties is to vote for Scottish Independence.
