Scottish Independence YES or NO a final comment
Tomorrow is vote day, the big day in
when both sides will be doing their bit and hoping for the best. One important
thing to remember though is that all Scotsmen like a bit of a party. If Scotland votes
YES there will be a huge party with folk leaping about knowing that over the
next couple of years it will be all change and into the great unknown. If Scotland votes
NO there will be a party, but not as good because everything will stay the
same. Folk don’t generally have parties when stuff stays the same. Its like
children having a party because they are not leaving home, these seldom happen
because it’s hard to party when your parents are crying in the dining room. Scotland
While pondering things, two interesting thoughts came to mind. . . .Let’s face it someone normally nicks my thought and says it’s theirs, the first I have mentioned in FB as a passing comment but I thought well that’s interesting what will happen with that. You see I thought as we plan to adopt the Queen and let
England have Prince (King) Charles then we could
keep the pound as it’s the Queens face on it.
Then I thought HANG ON what about stamps whose stamps will we use, because that
lot at Royal Mail use any excuse to put up the price of stamps. I bet they try
and charge extra for delivery to Europe.
However I have a solution
can sell its own stamps cheaper than the English ones and sell them over the
internet to the English so they can send letters and parcels cheaper using the
Scottish stamps . . . . Yet another
problem solved and a good revenue generator. Scotland
This brings me to my second point; you see
has the highest number of Inventors, Discoverers and Explorers per head of
population of any country in the world by a huge margin. So although Scotland will see many problems to solve,
we are in fact the ideal nation to solve them all. In fact you could argue that
we are so good at inventing and discovering things that it would be folly not
to vote YES just so we can Invent and Discover even more things. Even I, down in Shropshire often discover
things in muddy holes which I prod with pointy sticks, you don’t see the
English doing this . . . . . OK that’s not entire true I can think of at least
one English man who prods at stuff with a point stick but they are few and far
So remember tomorrow you can either vote YES for an exciting and unknown world of Inventors and discoveries with a Queen and slightly cheaper stamps. Or you can vote NO and keep things the same with David Cameron and Prince Charles, a world of slightly more expensive stamps and the kids never leave home.
You know what to do. . . . .
