Their whole lifestyle is funded by 'London taxpayers', who they profess to utterly hate... done for almost solely sentimental reasons, a sense of a united kingdom.
They want to cut that off? It would be regrettable that it's come to this, but why not, it'll only leave me and my family and neighbours richer, and we'll have you whining jocks off our backs, and can laugh at your future shitty socialist attempts to stumble into being a functioning part of the EU.
As a Scot it is a pity I cannot vocalise exactly what's going through my head at the moment but there's a potent smack in the mouth in the post.
Look at the numbers......50:50. You cannot generalise about Scotland wanting to break away OR remain in the Union. This is tearing the country directly in half and is very heated on both sides, ugly (disgracefully so) at times.
Caveat: I am not allowed to vote, as a Scot, with a passport.
Kids of 16yrs are allowed to vote. Prisoners are allowed to vote. Residents of any nationality are allowed to vote ALL a ploy by the SNP to find their maximum voter base AND YET they still cannot claim to lead the numbers.
Personally I can't figure out how anybody would vote for Independence without even knowing something as basic as what currency to use. It's a pretty fundamental aspect of how a country is to be run and yet this has no clear answer, unlike "Yes, we'll scrap the bedroom tax." Oh, woohoo, like that's something to end a centuries old Union.
For me and my son, we have to wonder what options will be available for citizenship once this is all done and dusted. As an Expat abroad without even a right to vote, I am having to accept a decision from others that has a potential to really screw me over. Justice? There is none! I'm not a Sir Sean living in the lap of luxury closer to the grave than the maternity ward so for myself and thousands like me the next week (at best) or 24-months (at worst) is going to throw up more problems than it solves.
