Just a few more factual points to ponder for the undecided:
(A): Yesterday's Westminster Budget; More scraps, yet again for Scotland, thrown from the "masters table".
(B): Westminster will send our 16 & 17 year old's to fight for their country and possibly die. They will even
allow them to have children and/or get married but Westminster does not believe in giving them the
vote to have a say in the future of their country.
(C): Westminster can order our soldiers into wars such as Iraq, without the countries backing. Brussels
does not have the power to do that and the Scottish people would never allow a Scottish government
to do that.
(D): Brussels does not have the power to meddle with the state pension but Westminster does.
(E): Brussels does not take all our taxes and then decide how much it will give us back but Westminster does.
(F): Brussels does not set VAT rates. Westminster does.
(G):Brussels cannot order Scotland to keep nuclear weapons but Westminster can and does.
(H):Westminster tells us what countries we will go to war with. We Scots are capable of picking our own
fights, thank you very much.
(I): Scotland has to ask Westminster's permission to set up & broadcast our own TV programmes, such as
Gaelic language programmes. Why should Westminster MP' get to decide what Scotland's people watch
or listen to on TV & Radio ?
(J): Brussels does not have the power to create endless red tape which prevents sick or disabled people
from getting benefits but that is exactly what Westminster can and is doing.
(K): Westminster has a disgraceful record of letting terrorist's, such as Abu Hamza, into the country.
These terrorist's then scrounge off our benefits system, with their many wives, as they preach their
messages of death & hatred. Giving them shelter when they start screaming that they will be
"tortured" if deported. Meanwhile, hundreds of genuine asylum seekers who need shelter and our help
are turned away every year. Not only that but recently, one elderly man who was born & bred in
Scotland had to get a tabloid newspaper to help him get his own passport from the passport office,
just so he could go to the USA to see family. Cowards before citizens ?????
(L): The EU does not have the power to dictate when any of it's member countries can hold a referendum,
but that is exactly what Westminster is trying to do to Scotland.
(M): Independence for Scotland would also bring about the end to the absurd system of Scottish MP' getting
to vote on English issues, when the English have no say on Scottish issues.
Remind me.....why should we opt for Westminster over Independence ?
