well, if you told them to do it, then how will it benefit england? Besides, Scotland holds naval oil facilities. Do that, and you'll make England's economic conditions go bad. To allow Scotland to be independent means that it will only worsen England's economic situation. Also, Scottish and English people have been fighting along side as brothers in arms during WW I, WW II, Waterloo, and the Zulu War. Don't you even realize that some british people are part scottish and part english?
that sounds cold. I truly believe that what SNP wants is a poor choice because it will damage the English economy further than where it is now. I would love to compare how the current situation about this is similar to the South threatening to secede from the US in some ways, and I don't mean about the slavery part. I mean social issues. I think there should be a government reform within the UK and not some stupid idea of making scotland independent. Separatism is not the answer to economic and military issues.
Lets just see what happens. And I don't quite think this is the same as the separation in the north and the south in the US... But as I said. Lets just see what happens. I guess it would be okay either way. What I think is funny is that when I read the comment about that I remembered saying that one day I would help Scotland become independent.
maybe your separatist thoughts would be the blame for England's future economic depression. Let's take this little lesson for example. You have two nations: one is an agricultural society with a huge population that needs to industrialize itself and another that has raw materials and metals and is in need of food. Both have different ideals, yes, but they share the same region in which the two nations are located. They eventually decided to become one not only because of economic needs, but also because of the emergence of a common enemy. When the enemy is defeated, the two may either remain the same or become one nation. By the time they become one nation, the economy gets better and both two regions are happy. However, one idiot declares that the northern nation should b independent because they have all the resources they need to be a sustainable nation. One that happens, the northern nation remains in good condition. However, the southern nation, without the export of oil, will eventually lose electricity and the economy will continue to decline. Understand that? Also, for the northerners, if they secede, then they won't have enough troops to defend themselves against a foreign country that have a larger population.
Uhuh... Well, my opinion hasn't changed. I think Scotland should become independent. I just don't think now is the time for it. And England's people can blame me all they want, but they don't phase me. The "idiot" in the northern nation is probably the smart one here.
Well, the negative effect is mostly on the economy, you see. Scotland has a lot of oil and they would still be rich when they're independent. However, I think it will also cripple England unless we can preserve the UK and place in government reforms that will make the UK benefitial for both Scotland and England.
The only problem is that if the voting age goes down. Because we all know that us younger folk (not me in particular) don't really, well, know how complicated it is, and tend to favour independence more. I also think that Scotland's way forward, if we did become independent, would be to use our coal and oil; but more importantly, if possible, because the first renewable energy country. That means all our energy would be our own, we'd not hurt the enviroment, we'd export and make quite a profit, and also be the leaders in a new sort of era. That, and Scotland is the perfect place. Solar, wind, hydro and wave...we can cover it all c:
