So Alec Salmond knew fine well it seems in 2014 that the forecast oil figures were not accurate. This is only now admitted by the SNP.  After the furore surrounding Alastair Carmichael surely this is not more lies coming to light from the other side of the fence.

Perhaps it was an "error of judgement" or an inadvertent "admin. error" so common nowadays among our ruling elite and only acknowledged when the balloon goes up.,

You can't be true nationalist if you are only voting to become richer.

Its independence at any cost for freedom from the English imperialist yoke.

Of course Scotland will be worse off if independent. It'll be worth it.

Please, someone will be crying "Freedom!" if we're not careful, Wheelsup.  :razz:


What baffles me is why Nationalists (with a capital 'N') are so hell bent on getting away from Westmonster so they can be an 'independent nation' whilst simultaneously falling over themselves to become a minor player under the heel of the EU?


Is it because deep down they really fear true independence and are really nothing more than ABE eejits?  :ponders:
