    Yes please vote for Scottish independence,no more payments from England to Scotland.

    I can see absolutely no reason whatsoever for a”NO” campaign,ever since the Thatcher era Scotland has been viewed, in the eyes of the national government as a second class Nation,as is Wales. Labour when in power gave us devolution,although a step in the right direction,is not enough. We need total control of our own economy,If we stick with the sterling currency England will have some power over our fiscal policy,but that need not be the case for ever more as we could over time introduce our own currency.We would be leaving the UK but we are still part of Britain.

    What brick up the centre of the universe,better build a brick wall South of the Watford Gap and keep all the Southerners in there.

    Up to now, I believed Ed Miliband would stand and get labour working for those who have absolutely zero control off their circumstances. The sick, disabled, the vulnerable, the unemployed and, with those totally dependent on everyone else, the children.

    He hasn’t. He has chosen to vent as much gas as Iain Duncan Smith. They all support, aund reiterate the same lies, the same bullshit. Except, Ed now hides his neoslavery stance behind the truth of Tory excess and squander. Really sorry, Ed, but that doesn’t hold even a drip of water. You could say labour would face up to tax avoidance/evasion….but no. You chose to pick on the 99% to allow the 1% to carry on with their greedy, grasping thievary.

    Well, Ed, f*** you too.

    Ps…Scotland pays more to Westminster in oil revenue than we get from there.Thatcher squandered the cash oil surged into the treasury in her day. So stuff your little England rhetoric, Robert, it is uncalled for, divisive and based on untruth.

      Milliband has confirmed what I’ve been trying to tell people for ages.
      Maybe now you’ll all realise that Labour are never going to change, nor will they ever change things for the working class.
      The only sensible move for Scotland is to vote Yes for a new Scotland.Why would anyone want to stay tied to Westminster politics, whether that be Labour or Tory. Scotland does not need either.

    Will the SNP be any better though if they grab power! I seriously doubt it!
    I think we should stick together and fight this government together and and make a better society for all of our people in this Britain of ours.
    Labour are now a irrelevance.

      In case you haven’t realised, SNP are in power in Scotland and have won two elections. They have done more for Scotland in that time than Labour have in umpteen years of rule.
      In any case, if Scotland achieved independence it would be up to the people in Scotland to decide what politics they want. That would be be a much better situation for Scotland than to be forever tied to Westminster rule and the continuation of being treated to second best. Scotland should stick together and get rid of Westminster next September.
      England and Wales should consider doing the same.

    There is no such thing as Scottish Labour. In Scotland Labour pretend to be different but Labour are ruled from London and always have been, that’s why they don’t give a damn for Scotland, and continue to obey every word from their London masters.

    Yes I do know the SNP are in power in Scotland and that is my point!
    What have they done? Blindly follow the Westminster constitution apart from no student fees for all and sundry in the EU except the English, clearly done too upset the English and cause division, free prescriptions which other devolved locations also do.
    If they get independence there will be no change and the sop’s given too bribe the voters withdawn without further ado!
    United we stand divided we fall!
