    1. Thomas William Dunlop says:

      Somebody hacked his account?

    2. Tartan Tory says:

      Well, he’s currently an unskilled tripe dresser, so not to far to go then…… 🙂

    3. Tasmanian says:

      *parp*

    4. heedtracker says:

      He’ll no doubt give everyone the runs or he’s finally gone insane. All the rest of them have, especially the BBC. How bad is it going to get, its getting really embarrassing.

    5. McHaggis says:

      You take tripe and you dress it up as something nice…

      To be honest, I think Blair has done spectacularly badly but essentially and in all fairness it wasn’t tripe he was asked to dress. He should really be looking at getting a job as a turd polisher.

    6. desimond says:

      Tripe..and heres me thinking Blair didnt have the stomach for a challenge too

    7. Lesley-Anne says:

      Well I suppose it needs someone who recognises tripe to work in a tripe factory and as he has done nothing but spew tripe since day 1 of this campaign then he is ideally suited to work in a tripe factory. I’m guessing he is applying for the position of tripe inspector! 😛

    8. Sandra says:

      Consider your apprenticeship complete!

    9. creag an tuirc says:

      Jamie, a fuckwit like me reads stuff like this and realise it’s normal http://blogs.reuters.com/india-expertzone/2014/03/10/how-election-years-affect-the-stock-market/

    10. Fraser says:

      Well, Deutsche Bank seem to have grasped the essentials:

      Deutsche Bank economists warned of the impact a yes vote could have. “It could at worst lead to a destabilising crisis in the whole British banking system,” they said, “and at best leave the rest of the UK with an unstable currency union in which the Bank of England is forced to continue to provide liquidity to Scottish banks while Westminster thrashes out a fiscal and monetary arrangement with a new Scottish sovereign government holding all the cards.

      Quite. Das is Capital old bean.

    11. Andy says:

      Jamie only fuck wit on here is you dickheads like you are tryin to keep scotland on its knees

    12. McHaggis says:

      Hi Jamie,

      I’m happy to help you.
      The pound is falling to levels seen as recently as February 2014. It is still high compared to the preceding 2 or 3 years before that.

      The reason for the fall is two-fold –
      1 – The market has reacted negatively to westminster’s threat to veto a currency union (which they feel is actually a good idea), and
      2 – They recognise that rUK has certain uncertainty of its own to deal with after the oil income stops propping up their debt issue.

      Lastly, I would only add that a weaker pound is actually helpful to our exports.

      Hope that helps x

    13. Triangular Ears says:

      Easy Jamie, you ignoramous. Billions of pounds were wiped off loads of companies today, some of which were Scottish, many of which had nothing to do with Scotland. Your article cherry picks the Scottish ones, thereby lying by omission.

    14. keaton says:

      jamie: Markets don’t like uncertainty, and get spooked votes look close. It’s what happens.

    15. Marian says:

      If conversations I’ve had with people tonight are anything to go by the BT TV blitz has backfired spectacularly on the BBC and SKY who btw appear to be oblivious (or don’t care) that Scots are watching too – one DK even said to me “the party’s over for the Westminster party after this”.

      I took that to mean another YES thanks to the BBC and SKY!

    16. keaton says:

      Apologies, botched the link!

    17. gillie says:

      That is the problem with prescriptive text. I wonder what rhymes with ‘tripe’? …….. ah!

    18. ronnie anderson says:

      @ jamie I will venture a comment,when GEOs of these company’s go on National TV / Newspapers saying they will leave Scotland if its a YES vote, the International share’s markets get very very worried, & the share’s Drop.

      Fuckwit one over & out. Fuckwit two will be along shortly.

    19. Carnyx says:

      Jamie said

      Would any of you deluded fuckwits care to comment on this?

      OMG share values changed, what are we going to do?

      Markets don’t like uncertainty, hence share values go down, they go back up when stability is restored, the British govt could have avoided some of this by not posturing over currency union but otherwise big deal, happens every time a new govt is elected.

    20. Scotsbob says:

      TNS poll now released YES 38% no 39% basically wiping out a 12 point no lead.

      Spokesperson for BT says they are baffled because their polls show differently

    21. Bob Sinclair says:

      Now that’s not very friendly or polite Jamie. Its the naughty step for you my bot & no pocket money for a month.

    22. Bishop Riggs says:

      Who’s Jamie? What did he say? Sorry if I’ve missed something obvious.

    23. Lesley-Anne says:

      Fuckwit TWO calling Fuckwit ONE.

      Radio check.

      Are you receiving?

      Over. 😛

    24. caz-m says:

      Ronnie

      The BBC have gone into overdrive this week and need to be brought back down to earth.

      Is the protest still on for Sunday at Pacific Quay?

      Cheers big man.

    25. Bishop Riggs says:

      Sorry – Camyx has just shown me.

    26. Angus says:

      I don’t think we can comment on it until we laugh our arses off at Osbourne’s and Darling’s lack of success in threatening Scotland over a currency union which has created the faux uncertainty as the Referendum draws……..you think democracy should stop because people twat about on the stock exchange?

      Vote Yes and grow some you wee pussy.

    27. Bob Sinclair says:

      Bot should have read boy, but actually I’m not so sure whether I did get it wrong.

    28. Lesley-Anne says:

      Caz, Stevie boy said this over on the previous thread. 😉

      BBC protest Sunday 14th September 2pm-4pm.. we need to go, a massive attendance has to be recognised some way.

      .. I need to stop watching tv full stop.. can’t take anymore of it!! What utter shite.

      Hurry up SBS!!

    29. Scott Minto (Aka Sneekyboy) says:

      Hello Jamie,

      If you look at the companies apparently ‘hit’, its the ones that spent a great deal of time rubbishing Independence as a risk to their business and coming out for NO…

      Now the thing is, if you tell the markets that Independence will hurt your business and then the chance of independence narrows, you only have yourself to blame when your stock price collapses.

    30. Thepnr says:

      Another’s thoughts on the role of a “Tripe Dresser”

      Cows intestines stinks, would think the dresser was a well avoided member of Victorian Society.
      In the 60s I remember a tripe shop which was on my way to school I used to ride pass full speed on my bike.

    31. ronnie anderson says:

      @ caz_m yes its still on caz,see you there.

    32. Graeme Doig says:

      Donald

      Great link.

      Jamie did you read it? Na didn’t think so. Facts aren’t your thing mate so away and give us peace.

    33. Dcanmore says:

      or as Malcolm Tucker would say ‘fuckitywit byeee’

    34. liz says:

      @Scott Minto – that’s very interesting – do you think they will now realise that the UK were willing to sacrifice them?

    35. Thepnr says:

      Duggie’s been back disguised as Jamie then I take it, talking tripe?

    36. Flooplepoop says:

      Is he getting a new suit?

    37. ronnie anderson says:

      @ Lesley Anne O whit a wit that fuckwit one n two whits fuckwit three saying on the subject.

    38. caz-m says:

      Lesley-Anne, Ronnie

      Thanks for that. I’ll be there on Sunday.

    39. heedtracker says:

      @ Jamie, so Graun, via Sandy Chen says money goes south, from Scotland to England in the same banks with same risks still holding loans in Scotland. Maybe money will head south but its not going to help loan holding HBOS and RBS owned by Lloyds and UK taxpayers.

      ” In the banking industry there was focus on the possibility of major companies and individual savers taking their deposits from Scotland in the event of a yes vote. “Deposits would go south, but loans would remain, creating a funding gap at the same time when Scottish wholesale funding rates would likely be rising – thus exacerbating the pain,” said Sandy Chen, analyst at Cenkos.”

    40. Balaaargh says:

      Hi Jamie and welcome to WoS. It’s a shame you haven’t read some of the other threads where there already comments about today’s market movements but let’s take a look at that article you’ve quoted.

      “Guy Foster, head of research at stockbroker Brewin Dolphin, said that stocks had recovered some of their losses after ‘cooler heads prevailed‘.” (emphasis mine)

      In other words, “the city” panicked. Their decisions are based on hypothetical “what if’s” and the current WM cries of “no CU”. No CU hurts the Kingdom of England as much as it hurts us. Which is why it is the best option for both parties involved. Weren’t you listening to Alex Salmond when he discussed the Fiscal Commission Working Group and their report?

      Oh, and I loved the quote at the end,

      “The risks to the UK are trivial compared to those triggered in Scotland by the likely flight of capital and business talent if the yes campaign wins.”

      Having spent most of my adult life living in England, it was the thought of achieving independence that brought me back.

    41. Defo says:

      Oeuf.
      They say that in an infinite universe, anything that’s possible will happen, infinite times, but…whoa. This is what they mean by ‘taking the biscuit’.

      Did Ghandi expand upon when we get our turn at laughing ?
      Screw magnamity, I want to shaeden my freude stupid, at the bastirt’s in mental meltdown.
      Esp Flipper, Fifi, Fookes,the Fa’kirk fakir, the whole Fing lot really. All those rancid UKOK trolls/Slab intern’s living in the comment section’s, the poxy self serving media whore’s, the bought & sold expert’s, the pathetically inept Westmidden elites & their barely any better Whitehall goons, all.
      Esp Fifi. 🙂

    42. Ron Burgundy says:

      A by product of WM refusal, thus far, to countenance a C.U. A nice bonus for them I’m sure because it bigs up the “uncertainty”.
      Do not make the mistake of assuming that these falls in share price represent some kind of evidence that Scottish enterprises could not function well and profitably in an independent Scotland and can only operate within the baleful embrace of the Union State.
      If indeed post YES a CU is off the cards fine. Sterlingisation will be the route to take via a Currency Board and the adoption of sterling. Stability then would be achieved and clean banking a positive by product. No bale outs would mean no casino banking. If that was too difficult for the likes of RBS or Lloyds they would leave and take all the moral hazard to the City with them. The rUK would then have to face the music of the markets in a context of crippling debt and eye watering trade deficits. Such is the cost of self harm.

    43. Lesley-Anne says:

      Fuckwit TWO to Fuckwit ONE I can’t get hold of Fuckwit THREE. I think they have been stood down tonight. 😛

    44. thoughtsofascot says:

      Its a step up from his current position as chief turd polisher, I guess.

    45. ronnie anderson says:

      fuckwit one to fuckwit two sorry ah furcoat fuckwit three’s welding ploughshares.

    46. Lesley-Anne says:

      fuckwit TWO to fuckwit ONE oh that is what fuckwit THREE is up to. Roger that! I’ll away and give him a low fly past then. 😛

    47. Tam Jardine says:

      On the subject of tripe, I wrote and then deleted a comment after watching Niall Ferguson on Newsnight. I have been unable to express my feelings on his vitriolic hatred of Scotland without using very bad language and wishing ill of another human being.

      When we end the Union, can we cut all ties with Niall? I don’t consider him to be my countryman and I think he is better off living abroad and forgetting about where he was born.

    48. GrahamB says:

      Glad I missed Broon on the Beeb tonight. When I got back in from chappin doors my partner was fizzing and threatening to put her foot through the TV. Don’t think it will make any difference unless it helps the YES vote. Feeling on the doorsteps tonight was that this late and dubiously legal DevoMax intervention was insulting to our electorate.
      We managed to find some DKs in Garnethill area tonight (only one NO) and made good inroads in pushing them in the right direction – the clincher in each case was the WBB since a handful of them majicked themselves into our possession as we set out. Last door was a household of 10s and all their friends were likewise except for one they were working on. On production of a WBB the guy’s face lit up with a ‘that will do the trick’ expression.
      So it won’t be The Sun but the Wee Blue Book wot done it!

    49. ronnie anderson says:

      fuckwit one to fuckwit two drop of a wee note to fuckwit three ask him if I should ploughin some Timeshares ah like to get in at ground level on share issues.

    50. Lesley-Anne says:

      fuckwit TWO to fuckwit ONE WILCO. Come to think about it I might join you in at the ground level. 😉

    51. frazer allan whyte says:

      This “fuckwit” stuff helps exactly who? What a great welcome to a newcomer reading this – no doubt the high/sane/whatever tone of this “conversation” will show them how “wings soars above Scottish politics”. I wonder how many DKs have been turned “no” by this sludge…are these posters “no” trolls?

    52. bookie from hell says:

      looks like brown told darling –get tae fcuk

    53. Onwards says:

      @Scotsbob.

      That TNS poll is encouraging.
      It shows that the bedrock of the NO campaign is old grannies.

    54. joe kane says:

      Blair McDougall is offal. So is his wardrobe.

      There’s bound to be a good joke in McDougall’s tweet involving Yvonne Hama but I can’t come up with one at the moment.

    55. ronnie anderson says:

      @Lesley Anne would you like to answer Frazer Allen at 12.40 1st or shall I.

    56. Lesley-Anne says:

      I think you should Ronnie after all your callsign is fuckwit ONE I’m only fuckwit TWO. 😛

    57. K1 says:

      There’s a lot of fuckaboutary on this thread the night…thought I’d join in…if only to ease the madness of rUKgovbetnothanks going into predicted meltdown with the ‘sudden’ realisation that we are in fact serious and very well informed and at ease with our decision to quit the political union. It will be in writing next Friday 19th September. Where well over the requested number of signatures required to finalise the beginning of the end will be writ large across your bought and paid for biased msm outlets.

      Your service’s are no longer required.

      Sigh…feel better now 🙂

    58. ronnie anderson says:

      @ Lesley Anne that original Jamie post has disappered

    59. Thepnr says:

      @frazer allan whyte

      Keep you cool frazer, it is after the watershed and some people may let off a bit of steam. Might not be to everyone’s taste as to humour but humour it is.

    60. Lesley-Anne says:

      Damn it!

      What a little spoil sport. I guess this is the end of fuckwit ONE and Two for the rest of the night then. 😛

    61. Thepnr says:

      @ronnie anderson

      Yes it had disappeared quite only in the thread, I didn’t know what you were talking about either but worked it out!

    62. joe kane says:

      As WOS mentioned on Twitter, Darling is sounding like Hitler in his bunker in the last days ranting about how final victory was just round the corner the same way Darling was on TV desperately claiming that at the very last hour when total defeat was imminent, when the voter was faced with putting their cross on the ballot paper, only then would ultimate victory for the nawbags be assured. Almost certain defeat is proof of decisive overwhelming victory. Aye right.

    63. Lesley-Anne says:

      In our own defence Thepnr it was Jamie, who’s posts have now disappeared, who actually started with the fuckwit name calling first. Ronnie and I just jumped on that, as you know we would, for a wee bit of fun. We were calling no one a fuckwit apart from ourselves. 😛

    64. K1 says:

      It was a bit of fun LA, clearly…kinda reclaiming ‘fuckwit’ as a neutraliser of the original pejorative use from dugjam. We don’t take oorsel’s too seriously…sure sign of humility:-)

    65. geeo says:

      Were fuckwit one and 2 just shot down ?

      You 2 imaginary aircraft please return to the empty carrier please….over and out. !

    66. Calgacus says:

      Well that’s 10% of their save the union campaign gone. Only 9 more days of this anti Scottish drivel to go.

    67. ronnie anderson says:

      @Thepnr Jamie posted up on the fall in share prices & called on us fuckwits to comment, his post has now disappeared but look at the top of the page to others commenting on being called fuckwits,how can that post disappear Rev have you removed it.

    68. geeo says:

      Seems a shame to remove the comment until F1 and F2 have rinsed it through the ‘mockpit’ first…!

    69. Lesley-Anne says:

      I agree K1. I’m one of those sport of folks who when they get called a derogatory name am more likely than not going to latch on to it for myself. I think the most obvious example is of course the term cybernat that was contrived as a derogatory term for everyone supporting Scottish independence on line. Unfortunately the derogatory side didn’t last too long. 😉

      I think it becomes really obvious that we are the side of happiness and enjoying life when even the paper reviewers on SKY news can see the difference between YES and NO supporters with the NOES being described as dour! 😛

    70. Patrick Roden says:

      Fuckwitcommand calling fuckwit 1 & 2, stop fucking aboot and get on with the job of convincing all them undecided fuckwits oot there, to vote Yes!

    71. Thepnr says:

      @ronnie anderson & LA

      I did see the posts other than Jamies which had gone and as I said guessed you were just having a laugh about a new troll.

      Here’s what I said at 12:15 but got no answer 🙂

      Thepnr says:
      Duggie’s been back disguised as Jamie then I take it, talking tripe?

    72. Lesley-Anne says:

      fuckwit TWO to base (geeo) WILCO, returning to base. Please ensure non existant aircraft carrier is turned into wind ready for our landing. 😛

    73. geeo says:

      L-A, you could never be described as ‘dour’.

      As you say, claim the insult and take away its power.
      Works for me..

    74. ronnie anderson says:

      @ frazer Allen Whyte, I take excption to anyone on this site being called a fuckwit,that was the challenge for a fuckwit to reply,I can & do reply in kind turning there words back on themselves & no I am not a troll neither is the other person,read the whole thread not just parts of the thread.

    75. K1 says:

      Oh fuck, geeo’s high fuckwit command…sir, am just a lowly halfwit, no quite reached full flight fuckwit status yet…earnin’ ma wings and learnin’ fae the maister wingers…

      (wee flight o’ fancy…)

    76. geeo says:

      Base to Fuckwit TWO, permission to land on half-built 2, steady into the wind and mind the Nightshift welding team A to your port side….over!

    77. Lesley-Anne says:

      PHEW!

      Thanks for confirming that I’m not dour geeo. I was begining to wonder, what with all this fuckwittery going on tonight I’m almost at the point where I no longer know whether I’m a fuckwit or a village idiot! 😛

      Fuckwit command from fuckwit TWO. We are returning to base in time for the next phase in our onslaught to win the hearts and minds of those still undecided. 😉

    78. K1 says:

      Concur completely LA…I too tend toward ‘owning’ the insult, disempowers the intent 🙂

    79. Lesley-Anne says:

      Fuckwit TWO to base roger that. You are now into wind on half built 2 with welding team A on the port side. 😛

    80. geeo says:

      So that becomes ‘base to lovebomb two, deploy charm offensive’ ?

    81. K1 says:

      LOL LA…love it…village fuckwit…perchance?

    82. Lesley-Anne says:

      Are you sure that it is safe to change our call signs on short finals base. I’ve got enough to be doing without mucking around with changing my call sign. 😛

      Don’t worry K1 next flight you’ll be certified to fly as fuckwit THREE. 😉

      I like that concept you have K1 where we take the derogatory remarks and turn them back on themselves. The internet is NOT as powerful as it thinks it is sometimes. 😀

    83. geeo says:

      K1 says:
      Oh fuck, geeo’s high fuckwit command…
      ………
      Fuckwit command to halfwit one…name rank and number only son, and stop talking to mrs fuckwit command..over.!

    84. Thepnr says:

      I’m sure the Rev did pull it simply because whatever he said in the first couple of posts it became clear that we were not discussing Blair McD’s preference for a new career path after the referendum but instead talking about Jamie.

      Jamie is most likely related to Blair both talk tripe but don’t dress it very well.

    85. ronnie anderson says:

      @Patrick Roden PMSL dont dey that at this time of the morning the neighbours will think I have totaly lost it.

    86. Lesley-Anne says:

      Sorry K1 I have not managed to pass the requisite promotions yet to attain the rank of village fuckwit. I’m just a lowly village idiot. In fact I quite like being the village idiot … no responsibility so I can’t get blamed for anything. 😛

    87. geeo says:

      I think it is safe to say that “ahem” ‘yesteryears children had more imagination…or too much maybe!

    88. Derek M says:

      just off the phone to the tripe dressers union who after this comment are terrified of him joining ,they say the markets will react to this news by slashing share prices ,possibly causing a run on the pound ,it dark days for the tripe dressing industry.
      A leading unnamed intellectual we spoke to says ,why ask me i dont have a clue i just do pies ,but im sure it will be better together with the onions 🙂

    89. K1 says:

      Fuckwit Three! I actually regard that as high praise! (Though I think I’m gettin above ma station…but who am I to argue with fuckwit 2?) …certified, you say…waitafuckin’ minute…lol

    90. ronnie anderson says:

      @ gerry parkers in the control tower tommorow dont be useing those call signs.

    91. Lesley-Anne says:

      K1 careful now you should have read the fuckwit manual by now and be aware that there should be NO SWEARING over these airwaves! 😛

    92. Scott Douglas says:

      Sounds a bit like Jamie Black who used to post on Newsnet.

    93. K1 says:

      FW1, copy, FW3 oot.

    94. K1 says:

      Aye…yer right FW2…(sob..knew a wisnae ready…)

    95. Lesley-Anne says:

      Phew, I say that was one hell of a flight tonight chaps? 😛

      Think I need to have a bit of a lie down in the “Darkened Room” what? 😀

    96. ronnie anderson says:

      @ Patrick Roden I.ve been out today door knocking 4 DKs converted with WBB help & a further 5 converted tonite, am jist taking a breather fur the morra, did you know we’re winning lol

    97. cearc says:

      Sorry to go on-topic so early but was that tweet a humorous throwing in of the towel.

      I guess our chum Blair must be looking for a new career path given that his political campaigns haven’t gone too well.

      Shame he doesn’t play the tuba, maybe he could take it up. Greg could help him launch a career in stand up. Daftest lines from the no campaign, parp!

Would be laughable if it wasnt so sad, folks.

Trade and tariffs are not in English hands. Those are EU and WTO matters. Let the nut jobs fulminate. It reinforces to some Scots the abusive nature of this relationship. We are not vassals.

      I see the Guardian’s attempt to shill for Gordon are coming unstuck today. He’s the man to the rescue of the Union in their lead article, but more interesting is an op-ed piece by him with a picture further down. It’s a “suffer the little children in war zones” piece, and despite only being open for about 12 hours it’s already closed for comments with a huge amount of moderation.

      The sight of the guy who wrote the cheques to invade Iraq saying “suffer the children of Iraq” beggars belief. I don’t think even Tony would be so deluded as to try that.

      Wow, what a day yesterday. Wall to wall BBC propaganda for the anti independence campaign.

      Today, however, I’m feeling very positive. Nothing of any substance came out yesterday. Just re-hashed vague ideas about maybe giving Scots more powers. The ONLY way to GUARANTEE more powers for the Scottish Parliament is to vote YES. Despite what the London based media likes to think, Gordon Brown really doesn’t have credibility in Scotland, outside his Labour luvvies he has following him.

      We have a winning argument, and the momentum is with YES voters. This really is Scotland’s time. Starting to feel very positive about this now. 🙂

      There is an absolutely excellent piece by Irvine Welsh in Bella caledonia right now, which really needs to be read by everybody, especially Labour people;

      http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2014/09/08/labour-pains-labour-of-love/

      Just as an aside, I see there are now loud voices starting to mention why did Westminster choose to refuse a devo max question on the ballot. It really looks like Westminster and their Labour stooges up here in Scotland, are getting pretty desparate. Meanwhile, we are charting a rock steady course.

      “Scottish Conservatives – Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has said Scotland should be given full income tax powers, a key recommendation of the party’s devolution commission, chaired by Lord Strathclyde. The commission, which said the income tax plan would see the Scottish Parliament accountable for 40% of the money it spent, also said there was a case for a share of Scottish VAT receipts being assigned to Holyrood.”

My god this man hates Scotland; what a strange person he is – he certainly fired up Tom Devine. I never realised that someone could detest their own country so much.

Nobody of course thinks to question Clunking fist and of course now we have more new news programmes from the BBC too (How did we survive with the news programmes we used to have with journalists from Scotland). Honestly we get it. The pound fell and some firms saw falls, Some of us have been saying what would happen for some time. It’s not really a surprise that the markets are reacting badly to companies that are closer to the UK government too like Babcocks and BAE.

      The ten biggest fallers in the UK Stock Exchange had little or no presence in Scotland but don’t let the truth get in the way of a good scare story. If Scotland was a basket case the pound would have risen rather than fallen on the prospect of Scotland’s independence.

      The ten biggest fallers are badly run, and carry massive rest of the UK (not Scottish) debt.

      Scotland doesn’t carry much debt. Is far more solvent, with real assets. It gets loaded (pro rata) with UK debt as the rest of the UK borrows and spends too much, especially in London. Tax evasion and war, creates the higher debt. Bad Westminster decisions.

      Just had a wee look at the market data on the BBC website. Over the period of a year the pound has shown a sustained climb relative to the dollar, and yesterday’s slight dip was merely in the noise. The plots of the euro against the dollar over the last month or so resemble those of the pound against the dollar. If there is a yes vote it will be unsettled for a bit, at least until the UK govt get their act together. But for now the emphasis of this is scaremongering

    165. James Kay says:

      As far as I can see, nobody has commented on the word ‘Northern’ as used in the tweet introducing the post.

      To me, Northern means anywhere from about Inverness to Unst. This would be true whether I was talking in a Scottish, British or UKish context. In the latter two, my concept of where the North begins may come down a bit to about Aviemore or Pitlochry.

      It seems to me that if ‘the North’ includes Lancashire (and that is what the tweet suggests to me) then you are using a mindset in which your country is England. If your country is Britain or the UK, then Lancashire is in ‘the Midlands’ – or at least ‘the North of England’.

      This uncinscious use of a choice of language in which Scotland is casually excluded has always bothered me, as much as being called ‘English’ when I am abroad.

      The English have never accepted the idea that England is not Britain, or the UK. History tells us that German unification came about through political and military expansion of the Kingdom of Prussia. We do not call the united country by the name of its most dominant constituent. I cannot imagine that a German diplomat in a foreign country has ever refered to his office as the Prussian Embassy.

      After the 18th, I am looking forward to a use of language in which Scotland and England are linguistically distinct places.

    166. David Stevenson says:

      I believe she is Countess of Strathearn, as in, one baby, two babies… etc.

      Although, interestingly, The Telegraph still seem to refer to her as Kate Middleton a lot of the time. Maybe they didn’t notice that she got married.

      Anyway, I’ve got another grandson due in a few weeks and I’m voting Yes. I can’t see why some woman whom I have never met’s pregnancy would change my mind, vomiting or not. Despite the MSM thinking it might!

      I am quite happy with that.

      I have to agree. Of all the tripe talked yesterday by the No campaign, Niall Ferguson’s rant last night, putting my country down and butting in when Tom Devine was trying to answer was disgusting.

      It has just made me more determined to convert every DKs and soft No I meet today. We must continue to show these No charlatans up for what they are.

      I will have more WBBs with me when I’m out canvassing again tonight. They really do hit the spot when given to the right people or a family of DKs.

      Thank you again, Rev.

      Well as with most stories there are usually more than meets the eye
      The unionist media citing Scotland’s referendum as the main reason for the pound falling against the US Dollar and why share fell in the banks and finance sector in Scotland as proof that the markets don’t like the idea of independence.

      Well my friends, as you have probably gathered that isn’t actually true.

      While glancing through Bloomberg I came across some snippets that slightly change the rhythm of this dance.

      First up, why did the pound drop against the dollar?
      Actually there were TWO factors (at least)
      Bloomberg state that
      “A “Yes” vote would raise the prospect of a more cautious approach from the Bank of England, which this month kept its key interest rate at a record low”
      Bloomberg also stated that “The dollar rose to the strongest in almost six years..as Treasury yields climbed on speculation economic reports this week will back the case for the Federal Reserve to boost interest rates next year”
      “An index of the greenback advanced to a 14-month high before U.S. data this week forecast to show jobless claims fell and retail sales improved. Fed policy makers next meet on Sept. 16-17. The pound fell for a sixth day, extending yesterday’s biggest slide in 14 months, before Scotland votes on independence next week. China’s yuan climbed to a six-month high as the central bank raised its fixing by the most in almost four years”

      That is what is happening in the real World
      It was not purely down to there being a referendum, but other forces at work, such as a strengthening dollar!

      So why did Bank and finance sector shares fall?
      Well one of the reasons is the RUMOURS that the banks in Scotland would move their head offices to England and the additional RUMOUR that people would take their money out of Scottish Banks.
      BUT from Bloomberg emerged a FACT
      “Royal Bank of Scotland Plc, Britain’s biggest state-owned lender, and Lloyds Banking Group Plc would fail the European Central Bank’s review of assets, Mediobanca SpA said.

      European banks would face a shortfall of 16 billion euros ($21 billion) resulting from the ECB’s assessment, analysts led by Antonio Guglielmi wrote in a note today. The capital gap “is a manageable number, although largely concentrated in RBS,” they said.

      The assets of more than 120 euro-area lenders are being reviewed by the ECB before it takes over banking supervision for the region in November. The review is divided in two parts, the asset quality review and stress tests, and the results will be released in late October.

      Mediobanca said it expects that Banco Popular Espanol SA, Commerzbank AG and Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA won’t pass the tests, while another two — CaixaBank SA and Alpha Bank AE — may “quasi fail.” Danske Bank A/S, Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB would fail the tests while Nordea Bank AB would almost fail, the analysts said.

      Moody’s Investors Service cut the outlook for the U.K. banking system to negative from stable last month, citing an increased credit risk from rules designed to prevent the use of taxpayer funds to support failed institutions.

      “Only RBS is a clear miss on our numbers,” Mediobanca said. “The U.K. bank has confirmed its asset quality issues, coming particularly from high SME and corporate default rates.”

      Oh so the banks failed, but the unionist media some how overlooked this?

      Those who have been duped by Project Fear and offers of jam. They are fools, fearties or people too lazy to seek out facts for themselves. I seek them out, because they can be converted!

    206. boris says:

      Gordon Brown’s new package of measures. He opens his mouth and lies

      In their MANIFESTO the newly elected Labour government had included a solemn PLEDGE to give the UK electorate their say in a referendum on the treaty. Gordon Brown, Prime Minister, (who took up post, following the resignation of Tony Blair), elected neither by his MPs nor his party members nor his country insisted there was no need for a referendum. Hardened cynics and europhiles were extremely angered by Brown’s refusal to let the people have their say. This was a Prime Minister who had finally been awarded, (through nepotism) the most powerful job in the land promising, “I will listen and I will learn. I want to lead a government humble enough to know its place, where I will always strive to be – and that’s on the people’s side.” “We’ve got to honour that manifesto. It is an issue of trust for me with the electorate.”

      Defending his plan of action Gordon Brown repeatedly quoted his glorious-sounding, “red lines” (key areas of national interest such as justice, home affairs, social security and foreign policy which he had promised to safeguard) as a reason not to hold the referendum – we have protected our national interests, so we have nothing to fear. Dogmatic in his approach he stated the revised treaty was no longer a constitutional matter, although it still contained 40 substantial constitutional changes, and they were the same as were contained in the original constitutional treaty itself. It was therefore fraudulent to pretend the new treaty did not have the same significance as the one previously rejected. The Labour government, elected on a promise to hold a referendum did not have one. The treaty was signed in 2007 by Gordon Brown then ratified 1 December 2009. The UK was now effectively a different country, (against the wishes of the electorate) it had been deprived of it’s independence in 2007, just as as Scotland did in 1707. A scandalous abuse of public trust. Acting as he did, Brown failed to give consideration to the hearts and minds of English national patriotism which is just as potent a subject to the English as independence is to the Scot’s. Politics and trust are intrinsic, without trust politicians are loathed, ridiculed and ignored.
