DOWN THE TUBES WITH ALEX
If there is one thing you can be certain of in the great debate over Scottish independence,it is that politicians on both sides of the border will lie their back teeth out to get their own way
However, there seems to be one real fact to fasten on and that is that the skirt wearing rabble rousers (and that is just the lads) seem to be great believers in that old French adage "plus ca change. plus c'est la meme chose"
Alex Salmond, that great believer in fairy tales, is telling his people that nothing is really going to change. For example, he will keep the British £1 sterling as Scottish currency
The Hell he says!
The sheer brass nerve of the man takes some believing, but he means it
Forget what mass of stuff and guff English and Scottish MP's come up with about this. No one really knows whether or not Scotland can achieve economic stability with independence and, if they go down, they'll drag our currency and therefore us, down with them
Whether or not they want to risk it with the Euro is up to them, leaving aside the fact that there is no guarantee that they will actually be allowed to adopt it
Let them set up their own currency - how about "The Thistle" Alex? But they must not be allowed to use ours
More evidence of Alex promoting change but, at the same time, conning his people into believing that things will stay the same, is that he wants to keep The Queen as head of state
Fine. But is he going to chip in to pay for her?
