If scotland gets independance who gets the monarch

Recommended Posts

Tell that lovely Alex Salmond that if he so desperately wants a YES vote on Scotland leaving the union, he should let the English vote!

If the Scots want to become a minor insignificant backwater in the scheme of things,

who are we to stand in their way !!!

If some of the anti-Scots comments on here are meant to be funny then they have failed. If they are serious then thank goodness that the vast majority of people on these shared islands aren't quite so spiteful.

Hi Peatsmoke I fully agree with you, I am by no means a Scottish nationalist and have always been proud to be British and Scottish in equal measure.My wife has a large number of English cousins through family moving south due to their employment and we have English friends,I have never been anti English but when you read some of these comments and also some in the press even what could be classed as better quality it makes be very angry. There are parts of the northwest of Scotland where all you hear are English accents of people who have come north to escape the rat race you never hear them or read them informing there countrymen what a great country Scotland is.As part of Great Britian our successive English dominated governments have been quite happy to use,Scottish,Irish, Welsh and our Commemwealth Cousins as cannon fodder to forward their own aims. I find the anti-Scottish attitude seems to be more pronounced the further south you go and very prevelant in the south east but there again if it wasn't for Greater London we would all still be running about wearing animal skins for clothing.I think there is a small proportion of the English populace who forget the United Kingdom is made up of four countries and not Just England. As far as Scottish Nationalists are concerned look at the tradegys that have occurred throughout the world the minute"Nationalism" raises its ugly head, brother against brother,father against son.As Great Britain/United Kingdom we have stood up and fought against some of the greatest tyrants the world has seen and we have prevailed, did they ask in the trenches,D-Day,Korea,the Gulf or Afghanistan and all the hot spots in between are you English,Scottish,Irish,Welsh no they fought shoulder to shoulder not for The British Goverment but for each other.Rule Brittania.

Do we keep the UK pound? Do we keep our EU membership? ... Too many unanswered questions and I find it all a bit scary.

It won't be "yes" to both, anyway. All new countries who join the EU have to use the Euro - that's the rule. Scotland won't be in a strong enough position to negotiate out of that one.

I think that a lot of Scots forget how small they would be as an independent country, they have a population of 5.2 million on a par with Ireland 4.5, and Croatia 4.8.

 

Even without Scotland the rest of the UK will have a population in excess of 60 million !!!

I fail to see how the population of Scotland is relevant re independence, geographical size or population isn't important. What is important is the chance for the Scottish people to have their say.

 

234 days and counting.....

Population will be very important if you want to be member of the EU, the representation on all EU institutions is based on size of population Scotlands influence on any policys would be very small

Now if Scotland gets independence what about a Scottish Army, Navy and Airforce? Or wil the jocks be like the Channel Isles and the Isle of Man, dependent on Mother England for defence. Ah, the jocks like to spend a quid, triple their taxes to pay for defence ! LOL.

 

I reckon the English should invade Scotland and put an end to this rebellion !!!

 

Rule Britannia !!!

The Scots don't need the pound or the euro. There are countries other than the USA using the Yankee Dollar. What about that? And keep the Queen, then She can rule over a country that's tied in to our colonials cousins.

Or maybe go for a strong and up and coming currency like the Chinese Renminbi. See, plenty of alternatives.

Sturge told us today the UK gov. is only bluffin'

Do we keep The Queen? Do we keep the army? Do we keep the UK pound? Do we keep our EU membership? Do we send the UK nuclear submarines south?

Too many unanswered questions and I find it all a bit scary. I voted against the Scottish parliament in the referendum in the 90' as we didn't need any more government. We already have a British government in Westminster. So now in Scotland we have MP's and MSP's. And the outrageous cost of the building. I only hope that independence is voted down and puts an end to all this nonsense. However, if Scotland does achieve independence can I come and stay with some of you nice English people?

Please Rocchi don't wait until 18th September, GO SOUTH NOW, im sure you,ll be sorely missed, and while your down there you can pay for the Queen and the spongers , We don't want a Queen, and to anyone else that wants to leave, please go quickly and quietly , you can move into a nice ethnic minority housing estate, or a hole city , because once our boarders are closed NO ONES getting in. WATP, Bonnie Scotland Forever
