IT IS IN WESTMINSTER’S INTEREST TO MAKE YOU PETRIFIED.

IT IS IN WESTMINSTER’S INTEREST TO MAKE YOU PETRIFIED.

Scott Mccluskey thanks for this gem! it is well presented and well written!!!

I know this won’t sway the NO voters but please just have a wee read if your undecided – Ask yourself this.

In the week leading up to the referendum. If YOU are undecided now and are living in Scotland then you have been terrified by the negativity of the Better Together campaign.

Once YOU understand why you are still hesitant to decide, then this will make it easier.


IT IS IN WESTMINSTER’S INTEREST TO MAKE YOU PETRIFIED. THAT SIMPLE!!


One day after a Yes vote 95% of the complete future oil reserves currently under the North Sea & New West Coast oilfields, valued at between; 1-3 TRILLION POUNDS will legally transfer from Westminster control to the Scottish government and there is nothing that Westminster can do to stop it under International law.

Future remaining tax receipts to be collected from Scotland’s waters are estimated at between 300-650 Billion pounds.

This is the power that your vote has on the 18th of September. Maybe never before in history have 4 million voters had such potential for massive positive change for THEIR country.


Control of the UK’s greatest ever insurance policy against their debts will transfer to Scotland and the tax receipts remaining in Scotland’s waters will go direct to Edinburgh and not to London after the official legal handover in 2016.

They are the ones that should be worried about currency, not you.

We are well covered; we will have their insurance policy.

If it has kept 65 million peoples currency afloat for 40 years, how long will it support the currency of 5 million?


If you answer these 6 questions by yourself truthfully then you will be better prepared to reach an informed decision.


Ask yourself this, If YOU were going to lose between 1-3 Trillion pounds as the UK currencies insurance policy against their debts, and annual income of between 4-12 billion in oil taxes alone, future tax receipts of up to 650 Billion Pounds and you could lie to protect it, would you? I would, I would lie about everything, Currency, the EU, supermarket prices, mortgages, pensions, border posts, even bleeding X factor if I thought that it would make you vote no.

I would offer any power that you asked for, (without it being legally binding; of course), just to vote no, especially if I already had debts of 1.3 TRILLION pounds and rising daily.


This is THE basis of the NO campaign; provide total negativity to the electorate, frighten them enough to vote no, not because they care about you, but to hold onto these reserves & the revenue that they create.


Westminster refused Devo-Max being put on the ballot paper.

This was what the majority of Scots would have accepted 1 year previously; equal partners, with a shared policy on defence & foreign affairs with total control of our revenues to follow our countries separate political path & aspirations, but still within the UK.

This was the easy option for many back then.


Ask yourself this – If Westminster cared about the people, and not just about the revenues, why then did they not allow this on the ballot? Could it be that people do not matter to them, revenue and power is their only motivation?


Ask yourself this – Have Westminster provided one positive plan to lift almost 1 million Scots out of poverty?

On the contrary, both Labour & the Tories have already stated that deeper and continued austerity will be required to at least 2018.

25 billion of cuts are already approved for 2015, and a further 86 billion to balance the deficit before they even tackle a DEBT of approx. 1.6 Trillion pounds by 2018.


I have a plan, it is to create thousands of jobs in Scotland, and allocate money to invest in our infrastructure at the expense of London & the SE. At NO additional cost to what we are already paying to Westminster, see below.
Ask yourself this – Have BT provided any positive plan to save Scotland money apart from deeper austerity and the removal of services? I have, a Yes vote will remove Trident replacement, 120 billion, Hs2, 4.7 billion, Westminster refurbishment; 500 million, not pay for Westminster or the House of Lords; 100 million per annum, do not pay for the London sewerage system upgrade, cross rail project, new London Airport & many more London & SE projects, another 2 billion at least.

Change our military to a defensive capacity from an offensive capacity, an immediate saving of 1 billion per year.

We currently pay Westminster 3.1 billion for defence but receive only 2 billion spent in Scotland.

A YES vote saves us 130 billion pounds plus without spending one more penny than we are already being or will be charged by Westminster.

Would YOU rather it was spent on frontline services here or sent to Westminster?


Ask yourself this – Have BT provided one positive plan to provide additional quality jobs to Scotland? I have, 12000 direct military defence force jobs will be stationed IN SCOTLAND, with their families.

These will provide thousands of additional procurement, support & logistics jobs at no cost to us as we already pay for them.


200 NEW embassies will be required for some of the world’s richest countries in Edinburgh, generating hundreds of direct jobs and millions to the local economy, boosting airport travel & raising our nations profile at no cost to us.

All of the oil company head offices currently in London will move to the capital city of the country who OWNS the oil, Edinburgh, creating thousands more quality jobs and tax revenue at no cost to us.


All jobs outside Scotland that relate to OUR TAX REVENUES, Income Tax, N.I.C. VAT, Oil revenues, Listed companies & oil company corporation tax, Export tax, betting & gaming, alcohol & tobacco, Inheritance tax, fuel duty, road tax, Capital gains tax, Air passenger duty and even payments towards our so called debt that Westminster have run up on our behalf.

Countless thousands of jobs created by the 35 billion pounds that Westminster spent for us last year will return home, revenues that will then be collected in Scotland, by Scots who live here, sent to Holyrood and will be spent by Holyrood for the benefit of the people of Scotland and not Westminster without any cost to us as we already pay for them.


Ask yourself this – Do YOU believe in HOPE over FEAR? Look around any village or town in Scotland. Have they got better? Have you or your family got more disposable income in your pocket than you had 15 years ago? Do you feel more secure in your job? Do you feel that your services are safe?

Do you believe that Westminster is truly acting in your interests? Do you believe that the widening gap between the very rich and the poorest is fair? Do you believe that the new massive cuts announced up to 2018 will target the very rich or the working people of this country?


BT has offered nothing but deeper austerity and pain, YES has offered hope and a chance for positive change. You may never get this chance again.


Do not let them scare you into what you may lose. Just look at what you have to gain. Yes offers this, no offers nothing.


Lose your fear; believe in yourself, your people and your nation to do it better.


If I can come up with a positive plan like this, without it costing us any more than we already pay then think what plans the greatest minds in Scotland can come up with when planning our Nation’s future.


THE FUTURES BRIGHT, THE FUTURES OURS TO DECIDE. Vote YES.

WHAT SCOTLAND HAS!!!

Scotland has only 8.3% of the UK’s population. 8.3%! Remember this important figure… 8.3%

But we DO have…

32% of the land area.
61% of the sea area.
90% of the fresh water.
65% of the natural gas production.
96.5% of the crude oil production.
47% of the open cast coal production
81% of the untapped coal reserves
62% of the timber production
46% of the total forest area
92% of the hydro electric production
40% of the wind wave and solar energy production
60% of the fish landings
30% of the beef herd
20% of the sheep herd
9% of the dairy herd
10% of the pig herd
15% if the cereal holdings
20% of the potato holdings
…obviously 100% of the Scotch Whiskey industry.

We have a…
17 billion pound construction industry
13 billion food and drink industry
10 billion business services industry
9.3 billion chemical services industry
A 9.3 billion tourism industry
7 billion financial services industry
5 billion aeroservice industry
4.5 billion pound whiskey exports industry
3.1 billion pound life sciences industry
Scotland still has 350 million pounds worth of textile exports

We have 25% of Europes wave and wind energy potential.

And finally we are blessed to have 1.5 trillion pound worth of oil and gas reserves.

All of this, yet only 8.3% of The UK’s population… Whaow Scotland should be rich!

IGNORANCE…
If you hear anyone saying “I DONT LIKE ALEX SALMOND” or “I DONT LIKE SNP”…
THIS VOTE IS ABOUT SCOTLAND’S RIGHT TO ELECT ITS OWN GOVERNMENT… IT HAS NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH ALEX SALMOND OR THE SNP.
DONT LET POLITICAL IGNORANCE RUIN THIS OPPORTUNITY.

Do you know… This is the UK’s legacy of success in our history of being better-together is as follows…

The UK has the 3rd lowest pensions in the 34 OECD countries of the world

The UK has the single most expensive childcare in the European Union

The UK has the second lowest-paid economy in the entire developed world

The UK has the 3rd longest working hours in the EU

The UK has the lowest number of holidays in the EU

The UK has the 8th highest gender inequality pay gap out of the EU’s 28 countries

The UK has the highest likelihood of poverty in disablement in the EU

The UK has the highest rail prices in Europe

The UK has the second highest housing cost in Europe

The UK has the highest fuel poverty rates in Europe.

The UK is the 4th highest country of wealth inequality in the entire planet!

But surely these awful figures cannot be possible when you read the following Scottish statistics…

Now, finally, did you also know that in all of the UK’s elections for Westminster ever!… Not one vote cast in SCOTLAND has ever mattered! Because of the Westminster numbers, whatever government England votes for, the UK gets. So we have no democracy here!!! 4 decades of tory rule that we voted against is proof enough, and our defiance was punished by the closure of all the mines; closure of all the steelworks; closure of all the shipyards losing hundreds if thousands of jobs. The term used by Westminster’s Thatcher when these industries needed some assistance was “let the markets decide”. Funny how when the greedy bankers collapsed everywhere they were bailed out to the tune of over a trillion pounds of our money… Not a mention of “let the markets decide”.

FACTS:
Fact: Scotland has an oil boom waiting to happen on the West Coast, but Michael Hesaltine signed a cessation of any form of oil exploration in the entire area in the 80’s to make way for nuclear submarines which Scotland doesn’t want!

Fact: Scotland has shown its revulsion time and time again to nuclear weapons but they place them here against our countries wishes. A recent contingency report was carried out a out the feasibility of relocating them in Portsmouth. The report stated that it was unfeasible because the detrimental risk to the area of an incident was too high. (Ok for the Clyde though)

Fact: Scotland, with only 1 Tory MP, was forced to take the shocking attack on the poor & disabled called The Bedroom Tax, even though as our nations government, Holyrood voted to utterly reject this awful tax on the poor. Westminster gave us it anyway!

Fact: We are led to believe that the oil in our waters is finished and its a dying industry. Yet 13.5 billion has been invested by oil companies in the last 2 years alone!

Fact: The Clair Oil Field is about to open, and on its own has over 650 million barrels which will be extracted over 20+ years with production reaching a hundred thousand barrels a day!

Fact: Scotland gives more to Westminster than it gets back. Do you really think they’d be so keen to keep us if we were being subsidised like they’d have us believe?

Fact: Westminster has amassed over £1.3 trillion debt and still growing at nearly £6000 a second. Thats another £516 million today alone which YOU will have to pay for.

Fact: Of the 178 countries that have gained their own independence across this planet, not one single one of them has ever asked to reverse this independence, and very few of them have the assets we have.

SCOTLAND, WHAT ARE WE SCARED OF? WE HAVE A CHANCE… WITHOUT A SINGLE BULLET BEING FIRED, WITHOUT A SINGLE DEATH… TO GET OUR FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PUT A CROSS IN THE YES BOX.

SCOTLAND, ITS TIME TO STAND UP AS A NATION AND VOTE YES ON THE 18TH OF SEPTEMBER… AND BECOME A FREE AND CARING NATION AGAIN!!!

VOTE YES AND SET OUR COUNTRY FREE!!!!

Y E S ! ! ! Y E S ! ! ! Y E S ! ! !

Robert Peston on Scottish Vote

Robert Peston today tweeted that mark Carney thinks no home nation will be able to use the pound sterling if Scotland wins it’s FREEDOM in next’s weeks vote.

This means that Westminster can’t tell us what to do and worse can’t tell us we can’t use sterling anymore than the rest of the UK  post the 19 September 2014

Has any of our readers noticed how biased all media reporting has become over the last 24 hours totally towards the yes campaigners?

This site is 100% YES and proud the BBC is doing a sterling job for the no campaign but us Scott’s are not brain dead yet not to see what’s really going on and the offer of golden honey tomorrow when all we get is cheap jam every day of the week with no change after the vote is not very appealing to middle aged voters who remember the days of the Tory party poll tax days of old.

 

UNIONIST LEADERS TO VISIT SCOTLAND

UNIONIST LEADERS TO VISIT SCOTLAND, AND DO WHAT EXACTLY? Tomorrow 10-9-2014. They say they are NOT panicking, they say we are giving you your Devo Max without written proof and we are better together! They have lost the plot big time, here we have the conservative party asking the man they hate most (Gordon Brown – looking for a knighthood maybe?) the man they believe caused the UK financial meltdown to somehow rally the Scottish labour faithful to save his job as prime minister shows how desperate the no-campaign are prepared to go AND shows Scotland will be better without the Union. Our Queen must be going nuts by this utter shambles from the no-campaign’s leaders and of the actions of her Prime Minister and we don’t blame her but was entirely expected none the less.

CANAVAN URGES LABOUR VOTERS TO WIN A FAMOUS AND HISTORIC VICTORY FOR YES

Canavan urges Labour voters to win a famous and historic victory for Yes
MONDAY, 08 SEPTEMBER 2014
The people of Scotland are just 10 days away from the greatest opportunity in our history, Yes Scotland chair Dennis Canavan has said tonight.

Speaking in Cowdenbeath, Fife, where he was born and brought up, the former Labour MP told an audience of local people: “We are now on the very cusp of making history – a bold and confident new Scotland, run by the people of Scotland and built on enduring principles of equality, fairness and social justice.

“This new Scotland could be less than a fortnight away. But we must not be complacent. The scaremongering, dissembling and misrepresentation of the No campaign will be ramped up as we approach polling day.

“We must ignore these provocations and keep our eye on the prize. That means working harder than ever, being more positive than ever, selling our vision more powerfully than ever. By doing that, we can and will win.”

Mr Canavan urged those who have voted Labour in past elections to back Yes.

“With independence, we will be able to build the kind of Scotland that Labour voters have long wanted to see – a society based on equality, the right to work and social protection for the most vulnerable members of society, including the elderly, the sick and people with disabilities.

“Every day, more and more Labour supporters are seeing the opportunities on offer and coming over to vote Yes.
​​
“At least a third of them are giving us their support and there is some evidence it could be as high as 40 per cent.

“By the time polling day arrives a week on Thursday, it may well be that a majority of them will vote for independence rather than take the advice of Labour leaders who simply offer more austerity with a continuation of the Tory benefit cap while spending billions on weapons of war and mass destruction.”

Mr Canavan went on to say that a Yes vote would benefit people of all ages, including pensioners.

“As they get older, people need assurances about things like their income, public transport and good health care. An independent Scotland will be more capable of delivering all these things, including an NHS protected from privatisation.

“And we can well afford to pay decent, guaranteed and sustainable pensions. We currently spend a lower share of our national wealth on pensions and benefits than the UK as a whole, meaning better pensions are certainly affordable in an independent Scotland.”

He will add: “The present Scottish Government has committed itself to a pensions triple lock. This will mean that the state pension will increase annually by either 2.5 per cent or the rate of inflation or the increase in average wages, whichever is highest.

“That is a stronger commitment than any given by a UK Government and it would ensure that the existing state pension entitlement is more than met in an independent Scotland.”

AN OPEN LETTER FROM JIM SILLARS TO SCOTLAND’S PENSIONERS

Jim Sillars

Jim Sillars

 

AN OPEN LETTER FROM JIM SILLARS TO SCOTLAND’S PENSIONERS

I am 76 years of age. My State Pension is safe with independence, and so is yours. Who says so? The UK Department for Work and Pensions in a statement made in January 2013:
“If Scotland does become independent this will have no effect on your State Pension, you will continue to receive it just as you do at present”
The Department explained that as we have paid our National Insurance Contributions, we have a legal entitlement to the State Pension.

The No campaign knew about that statement, yet through insinuation have made you think your pension was not safe; a despicable tactic to sow fear among the elderly when there are no grounds for fear.

There is, of course, more to the referendum than our pensions – there are our children and grandchildren. I want mine and yours to have a prosperous and secure life in Scotland; and not be among the 30,000 who leave our shores each year for Canada, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere.
In every age group, except us Pensioners, polls show Yes is ahead. Our young people have great confidence in their ability to make Scotland better for all, with independence. Are we going to hold them back?
They are not self-centred. They show concern for their grandparents by determination to abolish the bedroom tax, which they know has caused anxiety and misery for Pensioners. They care about you.
They know what they owe you for all the love, affection and support they have received during their journey from birth to adulthood.
We grandparents can be proud of the good job we have done in helping to bring them up. They are a credit to themselves and to us.
But what about their future? With a No vote, nothing will change. Scotland will remain a low wage economy dominated by unemployment, with many families driven to food banks to feed their children, some of whom could be your grandchildren.
It will be a tragedy for them if we, in the final years of our lives, deny them the opportunity they want to rebuild a Scotland that gives their children, our grandchildren a better future.

 

 

If I cannot persuade you to vote Yes, perhaps these words from Margo MacDonald will:
“This is our time of reckoning, we’ve got to take it, and if we don’t take it
we are consigning our children to much less than we’ve had – to narrow horizons, lower
aspirations ,we are consigning our children to being small when we should be giving
them a much bigger world”

 

Vote Yes.: give our children and grandchildren the chance they are asking for.
Jim Sillars

 

England In Blind Panic.

England In Blind Panic.

Even with the might of the entire English media supporting the no campaign the people of Scotland is now surging towards a yes vote success!

English Media including Sky TV News was reporting the UK is now offering a plan B its self including Scotland becoming a federal state if the No’s somehow win it (no chance).

The YouGov poll was the first ever poll showing the Yes vote going ahead in over 2 years which means project fear failed big time, its reported the no campaign is about to implode with ten days to go before Scotland regains its Freedom once more after 300 years.

The Yes Campaign would most like to thank Mr Darling the leader of the no campaign for confirming he lied to the Scottish people over his claims for over two years telling us we can’t use Sterling only for him in a live TV Debate that of-course we can use the pound sterling with only three weeks before the vote has given the yes campaign a 8% swing.
