The words of yours truly.
So you want to ruin a country, drill it to the ground because you’re satisfied with youre little best of both worlds? That is incredibly selfish
100,000 children. Children for fuck sake will end up in poverty by 2020
Scotland gets taxed twice as much as english
We have nuclear weapons when we don’t want it.
We havent had a goverment that we wanted in years!
We pay so much and get nothing in return
People have made you believe we’re not “genetically engineered” to make decisions
Your shitty goverment treats us like shit, they cut out disability benefits, child benefits and taxed us for having a spare room in our houses
If we dont vote yes then all this continues, all this will get worse and Scotland will not last long
This is ridiculous;
1) Child poverty has risen in every European nation since the recession. Can you explain what the Scottish Government has done with the billion pounds meant to help tackle child poverty which has SIMPLY VANISHED. If Westminster had been in charge of that cash and it had gone missing you’d be having kittens, but because it’s the Scottish government it’s okay.
2) That’s just a lie.
3) There’s never been a vote on Trident in Scotland so how can you presume we “don’t want it” - do you have a psychic link to ever Scot that tells you what we all think about the matter? Just because you don’t want it doesn’t mean all Scots don’t want it.
4) Nor has the north of England. Nor has southern Wales. Nor has the North of Ireland. Guess what, Shetland and Orkney haven’t had the Scottish Government they voted for EVER. And every time Labour wins the UK election, most of England doesn’t get the government it votes for! If you honestly believe that with independence the party you vote for will win the election every single time you really need to take a course on how democracy works, because for every Scot to get the party they voted for in every election there’d have to be only one party in the first place. Though I’m sure the Nationalist SNP would love that.
5) The UK Government gives us more cash than we put in so that’s another lie.
6) “They cut out disability benefits, child benefits and taxed us for having a spare room in our houses” - they’ve done that in England too, not just Scotland, if you don’t like what the Government is doing vote for a different one in the next election, that’s how democracy works.
7) “If we dont vote yes then all this continues, all this will get worse and Scotland will not last long” typical scaremongering trying to frighten Scots into voting for Nationalism. Scotland will not last long, what, are the mountains going to come tumbling down and crush us all into the Atlantic?
Im saying its the Westminster goverment thats ruining this country.
So child poverty is raising in every country that must make it okay
Scotland certainly do get taxed more than England
Scotland should be a very rich country yet there is food banks all over the country
I live here so I know moat people dont want Trident, many many polls have been run and its just easy to see
The No campaign want us together because we make them loads of money, every labour politician has said Scotland probably could make it.
Tge No campaign have literary said if Scotland go independent then we’re not being saved my an alien abduction
They also made a video which was so incredibly sexist
I want a country where im not being walked over by the shitty goverment that no one wants
So excuse me
You’re just being ignorant
Of course child poverty is NOT okay, but independence isn’t going to help solve it. If anything it’ll only make it worse.
No we don’t, and we certainly don’t get taxed double as you said.
Food banks have boomed in all European countries, again it isn’t Westminster causing food banks, it’s happening across the entire world. Independence won’t help us reduce food banks.
I live here too and I don’t know more than 3 people who actually care about removing Trident. And even if we did it would just get moved to England - if there was a nuclear explosion Scotland would be gone just as surely as England, we’re only a small island.
1 person made a joke about aliens, it wasn’t “Better Together.” And they made a crap video, so let’s vote our country away?
You’re not being walked over by the government, you’re one of the freest people in the world, move to Syria or Crimea or Gaza or Iraq if you actually want governments that walk over you and oppress you. Think how sick people who live in those places must feel knowing people like us Scots, who are among the most privileged in the world, are claiming we’re oppressed. That’s ignorance.
Its astonishing you believe this shit like, wow.
Have you actually researched what youre talking about?
Voting yes is a chance to change, a chance to make things good and if it doesnt then at least we tried. Voting no means no chance of change we’ll roll over and accept what we’re given
I mean, are you genuinely happy in this country? Or are you more like “oh well other countries have it worse no need to make ours better”
I mean, Scotland has billions and billions of pounds worth of oil, we sell that yet we get no money back?
You’re defending people who are taxing shit out of you, who are lying and cutting your benefits
And yes they’re doing it to England too but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do anything
No country has ever regretted going independent so whats so different about us?
Are you happy to just accept that children are in poverty, jobs are so hard to get, food banks are everywhere, people relying on benefits or do you actually wanna change that?
I mean, I knew the no campaign is a thing but I never knew people believed all the stuff they say!
It’s astonishing you believe everything Yes rams down your throat. Like, wow. You genuinely thought we got taxed double what the English get taxed until I corrected you, so maybe you’re the one to do some research?
There’s a lot of things that need changed, you’ve mentioned most of them. We don’t need independence to do any of the changing though. Do you believe you’ll wake up in an independent Scotland and suddenly voila, everything will be fine? I believe not only will it NOT be fine, it’ll be a lot worse than it is right now.
You want to help this country? Go volunteer in a food bank. Donate clothes and money to charity. Vote for the political party you believe will help everyone on this island - not just Scots. Because ticking Yes and giving Salmond and the SNP control of an indy Scotland isn’t going to help anyone in Scotland, let alone poor and vulnerable people across the UK. There are 600,000 children living in poverty in LONDON. Do you not care about them? Only Scottish kids?
Stop just looking at Scotland, at our own wee patch. Look at the people struggling across this island, and try to make all their lives better, instead of slamming the door in their faces.
Maybe we should get our country together before we help anyone else?
I mean whats the point in solving England’s problem when our country’s run to shit
Do you honestly believe the words of David Cameron, Alister Darling etc? Cameron who had a disabled son who died and now claims disabled people don’t benefit society, so cut the benefits? Darling who says he doesn’t invest in private health care when its a known fact he does?
I guess you like Margaret Thatcher too?
I dont like Salmond, just because we get independence doesnt mean Salmond comes into power there will be a seperate election for that.
Voting no means no change for Scotland, literary means no change, theyve openly admitted they won’t give Scotland any more power so how can you trust bastards like that?
Look clearly we have very different opinions, so lets leave it at that because there’s no agreeing or changing one another’s mind
My country is Britain, and I do want to get it together and help others. We don’t stop giving aid and assistance to foreign countries even when we’re in a recession, so why stop trying to help our next-door neighbors as well?
Do you honestly believe the words of Salmond and Sturgeon, who you’ve said you don’t like? They would make University free for everyone except English students. They could invest hundreds of thousands of pounds into childcare benefit today with devolved power, but they don’t just so they can blame Westminster, even though it’s not up for Westminster?
Thatcher is dead. She was in power before I was born, and probably before you were too. I don’t care about her, though it’s funny to see Yessers always bringing her up as though it’s still relevant. “Vote No and the ghost of Thatcher will close all Scottish hospitals!”
Salmond called the referendum. 80% of Yes funding comes from SNP supporters. The SNP will negotiate after a Yes vote to decided what Scotland gets to keep from Britain. The SNP have written the future Scottish Constitution. The SNP are in total control of an independent Scotland for the next 2 years at least, so if you don’t like Salmond I seriously recommend voting No.
Voting No definitely means change. All parties have agreed on it. One politician has said there won’t be change, hundreds have said there will. And guess what? Every time the UK Government has promised Scotland more power, it has given it more power. That’s a 100% track record. How can you believe they won’t follow through again when they have every single time before?
We do have different opinions, but it’s good for my followers to be seeing what Scotland’s up against. You’re the one commenting on my quote so feel free to stop whenever you want to.
