The trade deficit for the UK economy has widened

This is one reason why the pound sterling has weakened.

England, unlike Scotland, imports more than it exports.

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.

"Already, the myth of political apathy has been scotched by the tumultuous movement north of the border.

"As soon as something is worth voting for, people will queue into the night to add their names to the register.

"The low voter turnouts in Westminster elections reflect not an absence of interest but an absence of hope."

Andrew Garthwaite (above), of Credit Suisse, predicts that if Scotland votes for independence, and gets control of its vast oil wealth, there could be a ‘large-scale deposit flight’ from the Royal Bank of Scotland - or a run on savings - unless the Bank of England stepped in to guarantee bank deposits.

This of course is nonsense.

The Royal Bank of Scotland is owned by the London government and 90% of its customers are in England.

So, the Bank of England will protect the Royal bank of Scotland (and other such banks).

Credit Suisse is said to be run by crooks.

Some people mention it alongside Enron.

Credit Suisse has been convicted of a felony

It has pleaded guilty to “conspiring to aid tax evasion” and been fined $2.6bn.

Credit Suisse has a long history of investigations, out-of-court settlements and prosecutions of executives in several countries.

Are the bankers a bunch of crooks?

Rona Fairhead (above), the BBC’s chairman-elect, is being sued over her involvement in the HSBC money-laundering scandal.

Rona Fairhead is facing a class action lawsuit by HSBC shareholders over allegations the bank allowed terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to launder money.

Rona Fairhead chaired the bank’s ‘risk committee’ in 2012, when it was fined £1.2billion by US authorities to settle allegations that it allowed drug traffickers to launder millions of pounds.

The bank was also accused of breaching sanctions against Cuba, Iran, Libya, Burma and Zimbabwe.

You have been brainwashed by MI6.

A vote for YES means getting rid of weapons of mass destruction; it means Scotland having an influence for good in the EU and elsewhere.

I'm glad we'll get rid of nukes... if Russia blew us up, i wouldn't want the people of Russia blown up.. madness
But you may be right.. lol
Our perception is simply the info we see and hear, and believe... truly I know little..

Research the points Ive said tho and maybe you will change your perception.. the money game opened my eyes.. when you know how moneys created, you wonder why our so called government is going to private OWNED banks to borrow money when it can be created interest and debt free...for the use of the people... check the videos on and google the 'bradbury pound'

Salmond knows this.. but ignores as hes a Crown operative... he wants to 'keep the pound' (jees) and pay of a share of a national debt.. WHY?
Scotland is already independent.. we're only talking about shared government... and it was never legitimate in the first place being forced on the scots.

Ignore the trolls who want Scotland to remain a nuclear base for the USA. Salmond is one of the good guys.
