  1. Germany didn't lose a third of its manufacturing jobs between 1979 and 1987.
  2. Currency markets, gold etc. And that's just for this election. The surveillance goe on all year around.
  3. I can't think of any other reason for the OTT scale of monitoring than to make shedloads of money.
  4. i repeat my earlier point. GCHQ monitors every phone and text message/email - don't you think GCHQ know already?
  5. Don't you think that GCHQ have been monitoring every voter's phone and text messages? - GCHQ know the result already!
  6. Get with it! There were international observers in Crimea who declared the poll free and fair. Tellingly, there are no international observers in Scotland.
  7. Look - have a heart for the Establishment. Exit polls make it so much more difficult to fiddle the count.
  8. But the powers could still have raised substantial sums - enough to offest the alleged shortfall from Westminster. If they had used it, maybe more people would have clicked about the future direction of Scotland under devolution.
  9. There was also Callaghan, Home, Major between 1990 and 1992 etc
  10. No exit polls. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/sep/18/scottish-vote-no-exit-poll-democratic-deficit
  11. Bliar was far more right wing than Major.
  12. They already have a limited tax levying power, but have never used it!
  13. I read on one of these threads about a suppsoed exit poll from yougov. I have checked and there is no Exit Poll. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/sep/18/scottish-vote-no-exit-poll-democratic-deficit The opportunity for fiddling is greatly increased therefore, since an odd result from an area can't be checked against an exit poll.
  14. Mazda had the same troubles as BL at the same time, but upgraded its products with state help. In this country, we have the tyranny of the short-term, which carries on even to this day, and some posters on here want it to carry on until the last job has been squeezed from the British economy and everyone except the Royal family and a few bankers are begging for food that has to be imported 'because it's cheaper.'.
  15. Well, it would have helped with the balance of payments - the world is not going to keep on paying for our imports forever.
  16. Scotland lost a third of its maufacturing jobs between 1979 and 1987 - which put us on the road to this referendum.
  17. Final IpsosMori Poll - YEs 47/No 53. Bookmakers lengthened odds on Yes overnight from 3/1 to 4/1 Pound up today in anticipation of a No vote. http://ukpollingreport.co.uk/blog/archives/9002?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+PollingReport+%28UK+Polling+Report
  18. The idea of a federal Britain has been around since the days of Gladstone. The problem is the asymmetry in size between england and the other nations, which is why regional assemblies for England should have been given a bit of a chance. But having said that, in Wales and in Scotland the tendency has been to dentralise power in the devolved parliaments at the expense of local councils, which is not a good thing IMO.
  19. It's all a bit like Cambodia under Kissinger and Nixon, isn't it? Oust Prince Sihanouk for Lon Nol, and then make way for the Khmer Rouge.
  20. I'm more in favour of Single Transferable Soul.
  21. Did Westminster have the power to influence events? No, apart from bailing out a bank or two, and a Global government won't be able to do anything about the next crash because the sums of money are too large. In any event, an 'independent Scotland' wouldn't have the powers to do anything either becuase it wants to keep the pound. Thank you so much for highlighting this inconvenient truth.
  22. But you have had a Scottish government with substantial powers since 1999! Why is it Westminster's fault? You have even had the SNP in charge since 2007! Why isn't it their fault? Come on - you're having a laugh!
