Dr Alf is right but I think that this time round the Scots will vote with their wallets despite the” Braveheart” like frenzy that some of them seem to now feel.

They will get what Alex Salmond really wants which is DEVO MAX and the power for him and his hench-people to spend more money from Scottish taxpayers and then be bailed out from the south by long suffering English taxpayers.

Without Boris as Prime Minister, the English taxpayer is going to be the one who takes the hit because David Cameron will not abolish the Barnett Formula easily, unless he is placed under pressure to do so, contrary to the promises he made before he became leader of the Conservative Party.

This article brings home once again that the Scottish Nationalists do not have an effective strategy for an independent Scotland. As one respondent to an earlier blog commented, “It’s like the Pied Piper of Hamelin“. Let’s hope that the Scottish people come out of the spell before Thursday!

Simply, large numbers of Scottish people will lose their jobs and possibly their savings, with questionable banks. Independent Scotland will quickly plunge into depression and struggle to maintain public services at current levels; those on benefits could quickly be targeted for savage cuts. Scotland will become like the Philippines, a large exporter of people (once again – see John Gelmini’s point). Sadly, independent Scotland will be increasingly dependent upon monthly remittances from guest workers who have gone overseas, where the grass is greener.
