Compare and contrast

Scenario A - The SNP First Minister of devolved Scotland expresses a mere opinion on the likelihood that the London government would agree to sharing a common currency with an independent Scotland.

Reaction of the anti-independence campaign : "Jumped up parish councillor! Embarrassing his country by getting ideas above his station! It would almost be funny if it wasn't so tragic..."

* * *

Scenario B - The Labour First Minister of devolved Wales makes the patently ludicrous suggestion that he would somehow "veto" the sharing of a common currency between the UK and an independent Scotland - a power that he simply does not possess.

Reaction of the anti-independence campaign : "THE LORD HAS SPOKEN."


  1. And our MSM cannot understand why our trust in them is falling off the cliff.

  2. I'm almost at the weeping stage, the 'debate' has sunk so low.

  3. What a fool he's made of himself.

    If anyone could stop any country using the pound, it wouldn't, with respect to the Welsh, be their first minister. I thought it was silly when Ed Balls said it. But Carwyn?!

    As it is no one can stop it, although I suppose that the English cabinet secretary for finance could make it difficult, or awkward, or uncomfortable.

    However, when we are independent, I suspect that the UK will be begging Scotland to stay within the sterling zone.

    I wonder, though, if we wouldn't be better off in some sort of Norse currency zone. After all these lies, I'm not sure that we are going to find working together which currency union will to an extent involve, to be that easy.

    That would scare the sh*t out of them.
