Nice To See On The Page

I quite liked what Blair Jenkins said the other day. You have probably seen the video but sometimes it is nice to put it out in bullet point form so here goes…

Who would vote to JOIN the Union on these terms?…

  1. You’re main parliament will move 100s of miles away and your MPs will be in a tiny minority
  2. You’ll get a government you didn’t vote for
  3. All of your oil and gas revenues will be handed over to the treasury in London
  4. The biggest nuclear weapons facility in Western Europe will be built on the River Clyde, 30 miles from your largest city
  5. You will be joining a country whose health and education services are rapidly being privatised
  6. Now and again you’ll get dragged into an illegal foreign war
  7. An austerity budget will be imposed from London, cutting jobs and vital public services
  8. The financial regulation system will be so weak and so lax that your economy will be brought to the brink of collapse
  9. The most weak and vulnerable in your society, instead of getting the help they deserve, will be interrogated and humiliated in an effort to get them off the meagre levels of support to which they are entitled
