Wonga Scotland, why you can’t keep a joint credit card after divorce

Wonga Scotland, why you can’t keep a joint credit card after divorce

Sep 10, 2014 | No Comments

I have been watching and listening to Independence debates with increasing frustration as politicians and programme makers dumb down the substance of debate to the point of farce.  Is this because they feel the general public don’t or can’t understand? What arrogance and contempt.  People understand complex ideas perfectly when they are expressed in a […]

Fool’s Abound, a lesson in Economics for the younger generation

Fool’s Abound, a lesson in Economics for the younger generation

For the 1st time in 300 years, the Scottish people are being given the chance to go to war. Wars have always started over one thing but end up about another.  I know they don’t know what they are doing, but joining Alex Salmond’s barmy army will be, the least best thing you’ve ever done. “There are […]

We need to show our love for Scotland

We need to show our love for Scotland

I love Glenmorangie, fruity and smooth yet elegant and refined, but I like being British more.  To show how much we want to stay together, and without a say, we should vote with our pockets and stop buying Scottish whisky for the remaining days to the vote.  I, for one, will put a cork in […]

An Independent Swivel Eyed Dream

An Independent Swivel Eyed Dream

I was always told to be wary of people constantly rubbishing everything, as it usually hides the fact there is something they really want.  In finance speak, its called “shading the stock”.  The Yes camp refusal to accept the economic and monetary facts of life is risking not only the prosperity of Scotland but will inevitably […]

The Yes Campaign have changed my mind

Aug 20, 2014 | No Comments

Previously, one of my major life strategies has been……never ask an estate agent for the truth, never shake hands with a gynaecologist.  This has stood me in good stead until the Yes Campaign tried to conflate the NHS with Independence.  If I’m not mistaken, the Scottish Government is already in complete control of NHS Scotland. […]

Please Scotland, Save our Town

Aug 12, 2014 | No Comments

The lovely border town of Berwick upon Tweed faces total destruction as a viable economic entity if the Scots vote Yes on 18th September.  To construct an economic wall just north of the town can only negatively effect its future prospects. Like everything in our highly financialised world, money and economics dominates every aspect of […]

Alex Salmond’s Project Fear

Aug 11, 2014 | No Comments

Is the good ship Salmond taking on water? Mr Salmond is now suggesting the Scottish people abandon all reason and focus entirely on his fairytale vision of a divided kingdom.  Because, not to talk about the nuts and bolts of the facts, namely the economics, certainly does fill me with fear. I believe it was […]

The SNP’s New Business Opportunity for Scotland

Aug 10, 2014 | No Comments

The Yes Campaign has been unsuccessfully racking its brain to come up with a plausible business case for Scotland.  Will Mr Salmond’s first opportunity be to tender for fencing contractors.  Will he go for 100 miles of picket fencing or barbed wire?  In addition, maybe he’s planning to borrow the money for the project from […]

The SNP’s Secret Weapon

Aug 9, 2014 | No Comments

The SNP’s strong and thoughtful campaign appears to be losing a little ground in the Referendum polls, although Alex Salmond must still live in hope as their trump card is still in play to be unleashed.  The voter repellent, Labour leader Joanne Lamont still has further opportunities to scare an undeserving Scottish people with her […]

To Divide a Kingdom

Aug 8, 2014 | No Comments

  A seminal event in the history of Great Britain is hanging over the nations psyche. These dark clouds of uncertainty are weakening our collective strength. The Scottish referendum looms full of menace and will determine the fortune of our island nation for the foreseeable future. Aside from our numerous problems, which are affecting the […]
