Meh don't much care about their motivations anyway. Just their goal.

Just noticed the map says 1916 for Ireland when it should say 1922. Any more errors?


The Dominions were all independent long before 1931.

That was the Statute of Westminister, not our independence.

Depends how you define independent. Before 1931 the British Parliament superceeded ours (they could pass legislation on us). Hell maybe Ireland should be 1931 too because the Statute applied to them as well.

Yeah, that's it. Follow an Aussie idiot. Good way to make a decision.

Yeah. Maybe he wasn't crazy then. If that sort of bullshyte sways the Scots tomorrow, they deserve whatever they get.

Calls for the Americans to intervene are growing. Texas sheriffs are ominously reporting that they're finding tartan prayer rugs, tattered copies of Robbie Burns' poems, and half-eaten haggis' all along the border. Noted expert and renowned awful person Dick Cheney now regards not sending the entire US armoured corps directly into Dunfermline in 1990 as the "greatest failure of American foreign policy in the last hundred years - thanks Obama!". Sens. Graham & McCain says that some bagpipers with a stolen nuclear warhead, trained suicide sheep wearing vests packed with C4, or a strain of ebola where porridge is used as the delivery mechanism are going to infiltrate and "kill us all!". Where's Obama while this is happening? Golfing as usual? Isn't that a Scottish game? What is he, some kind of fucking secret Scotsman/sympathizer? Why is his birth certificate written in Gaelic? 8O :evil: :mrgreen:

Scotland will not be allowed to use the pound as it's currency

There is no way that they can stop them. There is no mechanism in existence to prevent Scotland from using whatever currency they choose to. They may even use the Euro to bring them more into line with their neighbours and to prep them for the EU membership that is just around the corner. Besides, Stirling is probably going to tank tomorrow.

Yet for a new country to keep another's currency is, on its face, an odd decision. It robs a country of many tools of autonomous economic policy: monetary policy, of course, but to a great extent fiscal policy as well, since monetary policy is no longer available to cushion expansionary or contractionary fiscal shocks. If it doesn’t want a euro-style crisis, it will have to run persistent current-account surpluses to accumulate sizable reserves of the anchor currency (much as Hong Kong has), a process that would probably involve deflation, austerity, or both. It loses control over its banking system since it no longer has the means to act as lender of last resort.

Might knock the Euro a few points down with it.

The only issue I have with this article is the fact that for any country to leave
the Euro, they actually have to completely leave the European Union.

There was a LOT of pressure put on Greece and others from inside and outside to not do this under any circumstances.

If countries could easily leave the Euro, I am sure 3 or 4 would have left already.

If Scotland leaves, they could keep using the pound like Kosovo or Panama (USD) does.
Wouldn't last long, and if anyone thinks they just waltz into the EU,
better think again.

In many ways, this vote is a lot like Quebec.
A lot of pure and utter bullshit from the separatist side.

Not only does the YES side think they'll waltz in, they seem to think they'll inherit all the exemptions that the UK has.

So long as I can still get my beloved Whisky; I don't care. I don't know why they are still scared of Longshanks after 300 years. It seems like they have things pretty good with how things are now.

I wish them good fortune either way.

Longshanks was Edward I, who died 707 years ago.
