WHY SCOTLAND SHOULD VOTE YES



If Scotland votes YES, it will be a good time to invest.

George Godber, manager of the £100m CF Miton UK Value Opportunities fund says: "Sterling could fall 10 per cent."

"I have got a number of businesses lined up that we will look to substantially increase our holdings in.

"They are all international, world-class businesses that would see a significant uplift from a weaker sterling...

"With 80 per cent of UK stock market earnings derived overseas there are very big chunks of the market that will have a very big upgrade from a weaker currency." 

Godber: My fund is ready to buy if Scotland says 'Yes'.



The UK's mainstream media and the London politicians have lied to the people of Scotland.

On 124 september 2014, pro-independence Scots rallied outside the BBC's Glasgow HQ to protest against the BBC's pro-union bias and demand the resignation of the BBC's political editor Nick Robinson.

The Scottish National Party (SNP) has proposed replacing BBC Scotland with a Scottish Broadcasting Service after independence.

‘Stick your license fee up your arse!’ say some Scots to the BBC, as they denounce a ‘liar’ BBC journalist.

...

 The corrupt London politicians have been booed and heckled and mocked.

The NO to independence campaign has relied on fear.

The NO campaign has said that if Scotland gets control of its oil wealth, it will become poorer.

The NO campaign has said that if an independent Scotland gets rid of the Faslane nuclear base near Glasgow, then Glasgow will become less safe.

The NO campaign cannot explain why MI5 and MI6 did not manage to prevent the London bombings.

Former police chief says a Yes vote will help secure a safer Scotland.

..

The very dodgy Deutsche Bank opposes independence for Scotland.

This is the same Deutsche Bank which made a loss of 1.153 billion euros in the last four months of 2013.

Crimes of Empire reminds us:

"One of the many ridiculous myths perpetrated by New World Order advocates is that the bigger and more distant a Government is from the people, the more benevolent and competent it will be...

"A national Government based in Edinburgh will have an obviously stronger knowledge of local issues, greater incentive to meet the needs of the people and generally fewer barriers than exist between the people of Scotland and the London government."

Scotland the Brave?.

Simon Jenkins writes the following about Scottish independence:

I would vote yes because ... of the well-known advantages of newborn states and more intimate governments.

Scotland ... would be driven towards true self-sufficiency, capable of resembling Denmark, Norway, Ireland or Slovakia as a haven for fleet-footed entrepreneurs.



"The international and security case for Scottish independence has been boosted with Yes endorsements from senior Scottish military and diplomatic figures only days before the referendum.

Yes support from senior Scottish military and diplomats.

"The senior Faslane Naval intelligence officer Lieutenant Commander Colin May - who has just retired from the Royal Navy - and former British Ambassador Donald MacLaren have both declared their support for a Yes victory in the referendum.

"The announcement comes shortly after a Yes vote was supported by the last UK ambassador to NATO Dame Mariot Leslie and the former head of the UK defence industry association Ian Godden."

..

Lieutenant Commander Colin May said: "Faslane would be an excellent conventional naval base and home for Scottish Joint Forces HQ...

"Unfortunately the UK has not taken the northern dimension seriously in recent years. We are without any serious ocean-going conventional vessels based in Scotland and the MOD scrapped the entire Maritime Patrol Aircraft fleet...

"More settled military service in Scotland will also be of huge benefit to defence dependent communities like those around Faslane and Coulport.

Retired Ambassador Donald MacLaren wrote: "Today’s reality is that, with the Union, we continue to float downwards...

"I tell you, there are plenty of Scots (and non-Scots) in the Foreign Office and in every other branch of government who are ready to swap shaughly Union decision-making for the creativeness and vigour of real responsibility within a Scotland making its new way in the world."

Scotland's GDP per capita is £24,398, which is above the UK, Finland, Iceland, France and Japan.

What Impact Will a Yes Vote Have on Scotland's Exports?

The top economist John Kay (above) writes in the Financial Times:

http://www.ft.com

Would an independent Scotland be economically viable?

Not an issue. Scotland ... is the richest UK region outside London and the southeast.

How does the economy differ from that of the rest of the UK?

Scotland remains strong in ... insurance and asset management. Tourism, and premium food and drink - whisky but also products such as Aberdeen Angus beef and seafood - are important. And the North Sea oil industry has helped establish a strong energy services sector.

Scotland exports 40 bottles of whisky every second.

Scotch whisky represents about 26-27% of Diageo's sales and 25% of Pernod's.



Business for Scotland wrote: "The oil in the North Sea is worth over £1tn.

"There are at least 15-24 billion barrels of oil remaining which will continue long into the 21st century.

Business for Scotland reports on the potential for a west coast of Scotland oil boom that is currently blocked by the UK Ministry of Defence, because of Faslane's nuclear submarines.

Getting oil from Scotland's west coast would revitalise the economies of Ayrshire and the Strathclyde region as a whole.

Scotland's Pentland Firth is the "Saudi Arabia of renewable tidal energy".

Aberdeen Asset Management is the largest fund manager in Europe, managing £350 billion.

It operates across 33 offices in 25 countries.

Martin Gilbert, the boss of Aberdeen Asset Management says that an independent Scotland will be a 'big success'.

He dismisses suggestions that a Yes vote will harm the economy.



Scotland will copy Ireland which has reduced corporation tax - in order to attract  top technology and pharmaceutical companies.

Scotland exports more than it imports, unlike England.

The trade deficit for England has widened

This is one reason why the pound sterling has weakened.



On 10 September 2014, the headlines in the newspapers suggested trouble for 'Scottish' businesses.

Yet the truth is otherwise.

On 10 September 2014, we read that twelve analysts have assigned a buy rating to Aberdeen Asset Management.

JPMorgan Chase is one of the firms with an 'overweight' rating on Aberdeen Asset Management.

On 10 September 2014, The Daily Telegraph writes that shares in Cairn Energy are worth considering ahead of a busy drilling schedule.

On 10th September 2014, Investec removed Royal Bank of Scotland from its list of stocks to avoid and moved it to a more moderate ‘hold’ rating (previously ‘sell’).

On 10th September 2014, Standard Life's stock had its 'outperform' rating reaffirmed by RBC Capital in a research note.

They currently have a £460 target price on the stock. Standard Life opened at £405.90 on Wednesday. Standard Life has a 52-week low of £331.70.

The coal power station at Cottam, in England, privatised in 1991, bought by Electricité de France in 2000.

England is run by strange people.

In the Financial Times, James Meek has explained how Power has been taken from the people, and,  what privatisation has meant for Britain

James Meek explains that the coal power station at Cottam in Nottinghamshire was privatised in 1991.

Cottam was then renationalised - by the French government.

"In 2000 it was acquired by the French state concern Electricit√© de France, which also owns a huge chunk of the rest of Britain’s electricity industry, including all its nuclear plants.

"There, in Nottinghamshire, all the supposed goals of privatisation - to dismantle state control over industry, to give ordinary Brits a financial stake in its success, to show inefficient, socialistic European state companies how much more successful privatised, entrepreneurial British executives would be - were being defeated, day by day, hour by hour."

James Meek refers to "privatisation as the dispersal of control over national economies ... towards tax havens, multiple jurisdictions, super-rich families and authoritarian states."

Scotland must realise that England is run by crooks.

    What the Rothschild gang is afraid of is an independent Scotland becoming like Iceland and telling the banksters to "Piss Off," you made the bet, now you cover the losses.

    That kind of beautiful anarchy could create real problems for the Rothschilds, that last time something like that infected the Continent was in the 1930's when Germany told the bankers to bugger off and their economy was the envy of the world in a couple of years.

  3. some of you are thinking 'oh here we go'.... but Scottish Enlightenment!!! In St Andrews, Edinburgh... EVEN GLASGOW!
    I know Freemasonry and whatever is involved... but did the Scottish Enlightenment not lay the ground for American Independence, Bill of Rights and Declaration?
    It was a good idea was it not? Freemasonry....

    IF I have to join some gay little secret society!

  4. Oh dear, if Scotland votes Yes, it'll have to print Alba on its stamps, oh the horror, the horror!

    Hopefully, an independent Scotland will be able to reverse the privatisation of the Post Office by setting its own postal service. If they're clever about it the Scottish Parliament may find a way to force the English taxpayer to subsidise this service. How, well the one thing English politicians will never do is to default on their national debt.

    Voting No won't bring back shipbuilding back to the Clyde(EU rules would prevent that), it seems that shutting down the shipbuilding, coal mining, etc were a secret price that the financiers paid to be admitted to then Common Market. Remember those sanctimonious speeches by the Thatcherites about the evils of subsidizing industries which their tax codes had made uneconomic? YES to no more Thatchers!

  6. I hope they vote yes. Scotland has wanted its independence so desperately for so long, just seize the moment. Companies will all come to heel when you're free and with your collective energy and spirit, you will do very well. My only worry would be the wrath of the English so-called government afterwards which could make things hard at first.

    I really hope Scottish independence will be the first nail in the coffin of all the abuses the ordinary British people have had to put up with in my long lifetime: ultra-wealthy and powerful monarchy, class system, increasingly poor state education and social services. What the politicians have done to our nation in the last 30 years at least have been wicked.

  7. You write a good bit about Diageo in context of Scotland's whiskey.

    Take the opportunity to expose Diageo. They are the largest liquor giant in the world, the descendant of the old Rothschild rum runners. Diageo is in the City of London, largest shareholder Goldman Sachs. Diageo under its old Rothschild label for at least the last decade relocated Jews from pogroms and created Jewish settlements around the world. Diageo is also always close where there is war.

    I sent you the AmeriCares story last year. I was there. AmeriCares' black ops funds come in large part from Diageo. I am certain, have seen it. Diageo has a VIP lounge at Shannon airport where spooks enjoy free Guinness while weapons are loaded on planes. Diageo helps fund the gun-running. They also throw in free crates of premium Diageo liquor into the gun-running planes.
    Scotland should emancipate its liquor from the Rothschilds, if it gains independence.

    Best of luck tomorrow, Scotland!

  8. Hiya SG @ 12.41 - Have a look at Diageo's Johnnie Walker adverts.

    Most revealing with the fruit and all ?

    Had a neighbour round last night, undecided. Explained that independence was just like moving out one's parents' home (for some anyway). There may be no clean socks for a day or two, and just beans on toast for a week or two, but eventually things will be better. He seemed convinced.

    Another neighbour, who used to work for Halls of Broxburn, now is employed in the whisky industry on a zero hour contract. Yesterday the MD left a "note" for all staff warning of the implications of voting for independence.

    cheers
