Non, non, non - ils trouvent qu'il est trop grossier et nous fustiger pour cela.

Are we that bad with our type of naughty humour.

I get away with the spuds reference since Sirius has not cajoled me over it.



Why should I. This is 2012 not 1849. What happened, happened, nothing you or I can do about it.

Yes there is Sirius, we all make sure it never ever happens again.

Do these politicians really know what they're talking about?

Sweeney rejects EU reapplication reports

"Labour peer Lord George Foulkes, who is on the committee, told the newspaper: "I understand [the president of the European Commission] Jose Manuel Barosso will be replying to the economic affairs sub committee on the economic impact of separation and we have had evidence here in Brussels confirming Scotland would have to seek accession to the European Union.""

...they can't even agree with themselves!

I like this idea, Scotland would have to fund the £4B by itself for its proposed Wind power. Which generates most of its power at night when Scotand doesn't need it. So it would have to sell it to England at low rates.

During the day it wouldn't generate enough power, so will have to but power from England at high rates.

Good one Mr. S.

Independent Scotland's wind power would be 'foreign aid' for England

"A Scottish Government spokesman said renewable power was a “secure and reliable” source of energy that industry regulator Ofgem has agreed would be required to “keep the lights on” in England."

Think too many Jock politicians are smoking too much "weed"!

"We are a union of states, so if there is a new state, of course, that state has to apply for membership and negotiate the conditions with other member states. A new independent state would, by the fact of its independence, become a third country with respect to the EU and the Treaties would no longer apply on its territory”

In response, Ms Sturgeon said: "We do not agree that an independent Scotland will be in the position of having to reapply for European Union membership, because there is no provision for removing EU treaties from any part of EU territory, or for removing European citizenship from the people of a country which has been in the EU for 40 years.

Well Ms Sturgeeon, if the EU were to vote to chuck Scotland out of the EU, and not to admit you until you re-apply, just what do you think you'll be able to do about it? Sue them? Just supposing they refused your application to join, what then?

Having second thoughts now are we?

The Spanish government has vowed to veto admission for a new independent state, fearing the reaction from separatists in Catalonia.

The game's up for the SNP, they have been caught with their kilts down around
their ankles. They wont get automatic admission to the ECM, they have always
known this...well they were informed by Brussels ages ago. Plus with Spain
vetoing any application Scotland makes means one thing...no point in holding
a referendum because if you vote to leave the UK will mean you will be out of
the ECM too for ever and a day. Scottish independence is now dead and buried
along with Salmon too so time now for Westminster to whip them into line and
make Scotland realise that it is part of the UK and no more to be tolerated as
that precocious bunch that sits way-up north. The same for Wales too, your in
the UK and would become nothing if you were out, so both you and Scotland plus
England will have all the same laws...like it or not. Also get rid of those
stupid regional governments in Scotland and Wales, the're only places were
fundamentalist independent idealist are able to squirm their way in to
politics and cause unnecessary aggravation. Too, bring out a new law that makes
it illegal for any political party to from itself into a one country party,
to be legal it must represent itself in all UK countries. Finally start
working on dropping country names and plan to name the whole of these Isles..
...Britain...with North, South, East and West as the regions within.
....Good morning all....

Another problem for Mr. S, looks like the income he said would guarantee his independant Scotlands finances for at least 30 years, just isn't there.

"BIG" Banknotes

"The Scottish National Party is proposing that an independent Scotland arranges with the rest of the UK and the Bank of England to continue to be part of the sterling family.

But some ask whether political independence could lead to doubt as to how far London would back Scotland financially. And during a financial crisis, doubt is dangerous.

"It is one of the paradoxes of independence for countries today that some of the freedoms that you currently enjoy may become unavailable to you," he says."

Sorry, Alex, you can't have your bread buttered on both sides!

The Scottish National Party has not yet thought through how to set up, or worked out the costs involved in setting up an independent Scotlands security.

SNP 'has not thought through' Scottish MI5 and MI6

N.B. for those not familiar with UK terms the approx equivalents are,

MI5 = FBI
MI6 = CIA
GCHQ = NSA

I think these fools have let their whisky cloud their brain cells.....

Scottish Government predicts "Oil Boom"

"In public, the SNP desperately insist the boom years are ahead, but in private we know they are deeply concerned that oil revenues are volatile, unpredictable and falling," he said."

So why the attempt to hoodwink their citizens? Expecting the EU to bail them out once they go independent?

The same way that the UKIP do. Anything goes to ride the wave of temporary popularity. Give it a couple of years and you won't hear anything from either of them. We all have our 5 minutes of fame, they have had theirs, time to move on.
