“If you think old England’s done”!
Monty Pythons flying (“expert”) circus is back in town.
Perhaps Dr Ibrahim hasn’t noticed the shrinking of Scotland’s regiments over the decades–the lack of sea-born cover of Scotland’s coastline–the closing down of Scottish air bases.
But when Scotland regains its independence it should be entitled to fixed assets and a share of other assets.
That would include Faslane/Coulport and all that is contained within–even though Scotland does not wish them, they are one almighty bargaining chip.
I would lease the nuke bases for a decade to allow Greater England to build new facilities. Another “expert” asserted new bases would be “almost impossible” to build (’cause no sane community would want them).
There is also a ludicrous what aboot King Charlie thing in the herald.
A. Independence bad for the monarchy, but….
B. Monarchy should stand back during debate in case he looks “English”, but…
C. Monarchy should prevent Indy, but…
D. 14 other Royal foreign bits, but…
C OK if they become republics because “it would lessen the workload”, but…
E. Bad if Scotland becomes a Republic??????
And old Queenie only did a wee bit of interfering…REALLY?
