How long is it going to take Scotland to become a Nation alone?
Scotland has been getting more and more nationalistic for a long time. When will we become our own Nation with our taxes staying within Scotland? When will Scotland benefit from Scottish oil?
Hi - hopefully very soon! I think if us Scots learn to ignore all the scaremongering about business pulling out and all the other doom and gloom crap that is spouted out, then hopefully we will see sense and take the plunge. There are many small countries in the world who do very well on their own.
Scotland, historically, always was an independant country - us Scots need to grow up and take our right to independant nationhood back. And in case anyone is wondering, this is NOT an anti-English slant either. I have many, many dear friends who are English and my hope for my country's future indpendance being won back again is not a dig at them.
Hi Seeker7, you're so right. For centuries we looked after ourselves and successfully too. Then we were involved with England. I'm the same, I have friends that are English but that's not the point with me either, it's purely political, namely, we started as Scotland, our own country, why should we not finish that way - without losing all the oil that pays off England's debts!!!
