SNP Controlled Scottish Parliament Demands Right for Scotland to Commit Suicide - Indyref2 / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As Britain counts down to triggering Article 50 later today the SNP fired another missile at Westminister Tuesday in their continuing program towards the subversion of the settled BrExit will of the British people by voting to demand that another Scottish Independence referendum be held before the BrExit negotiations are finalised with the EU. This despite the fact that in the run up to Scotland's September 2014 Independence Referendum the Scottish Nationalists from Alex Salmond and Nichola Sturgeon down promised that they would abide by the results of the referendum, declaring that it was at least a once in a generation decision if not once in a life time decision.

Scotland Independence Referendum 2.0? / Politics / Scotland

By: Stephen_Lendman

Ahead of Scotland’s September 2014 independence referendum, most UK and independent polls showed the outcome was too close to call.

In the run-up to the vote, pro-independence supporters gained strength. Some analysts believed enough to win. Instead they lost by a 55 - 45% margin.

Oil Price Crash and SNP Independent Scotland Economic Collapse Bankruptcy / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst most ordinary people across the UK are reaping the benefits of the oil price crash to below $50 that has resulted in energy bills being cut by 10% and the price at the petrol pumps nudging to below £1 a litre not seen since 2009. However, there is one part of the UK where its largest industry is in a state of collapse and along with it the regional economy and that is Scotland and its North Sea Oil industry which has been thrown into turmoil.

Scottish Referendum Not Avoiding The Future / Politics / Scotland

By: Andrew_McKillop

A Close Run Thing
Glasgow, by far Scotland's biggest city voted Yes to independence by a large majority and 71% of under-20's in Scotland also voted Yes. For UK premier David Cameron and especially for English Labour Party politicians who depend on their “Scottish safe seats” it was a close run thing. Pandora's Box was not entirely closed and will stay half-open.

Five Lessons Learned from the Scottish Referendum / Politics / Scotland

By: MISES

Ryan W. McMaken writes: Government authorities in the UK have declared that the “Yes” campaign for secession has failed by a margin of approximately 55 percent to 45 percent. Yet, even without a majority vote for secession, the campaign for separation from the United Kingdom has already provided numerous insights into the future of secession movements and those who defend the status quo.

Scotland and the Spirit of Our Time / Politics / Scotland

By: Raul_I_Meijer

The quote of the day today must be this one from Belgian EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht in the aftermath of the Scottish rejection of independence: A Europe driven by self-determination of peoples … is ungovernable … ”

I don’t think he understands the implications of what he says, and I’m quite sure he completely misses out on the mastodont sized problem he – quite accurately despite himself- describes.

Scotland Must Vote Yes! For All Of Us / Politics / Scotland

By: Raul_I_Meijer

I want to start off by expressing my deeply felt admiration and gratitude for the way the Scots and Brits alike have made the run-up to the September 18 referendum a peaceful and civil affair. It’s not at all hard to imagine how this could have been very different.

Hats off to y’all for that. And may it be an example for future independence referendums elsewhere. It should, the entire world should feel profoundly indebted to you for this. The reason why will soon become clear as other peoples pursue their rights to independence.

Scottish Independence Referendum Result NO 55%, YES 45% - Vote Forecast / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Today approx 9% of the British electorate will turn out to vote on whether the United Kingdom is to be dissolved, of which approx marginally more than half will decide the outcome of the Scottish Independence / Separation referendum. However, whilst the latest opinion polls continue to paint a picture of a too close to call outcome as they oscillate in a tight band of between 48% and 52% for either YES or NO depending on which individual poll one looks at, instead my consistent view has remained unchanged since the start of this year that Scotland will overwhelmingly vote NO, and that the probability for such an outcome remains at a high 70%.

A Public Bank Option for and Independent Scotland / Politics / Scotland

By: Ellen_Brown

Scottish voters will go to the polls on September 18th to decide whether Scotland should become an independent country. As video blogger Ian R. Crane colorfully puts the issues and possibilities:

[T]he People of Scotland have an opportunity to extricate themselves from the socio-psychopathic global corporatists and the temple of outrageous and excessive abject materialism. However, it is not going to be an easy ride . . . .

If Alex Salmond and the SNP [Scottish National Party] are serious about keeping the Pound Stirling as the Currency of Scotland, there will be no independence. Likewise if Scotland embraces the Euro, Scotland will rapidly become a vassel state of the Euro-Federalists, who will asset strip the nation in the same way that, Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain have been stripped of their entire national wealth and much of their national identity.

Scottish Independence SNP Lies on NHS, Economy, Debt, Oil and Currency / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. - The scottish nationalists for good reason prefer to focus on the 'brave heart' emotions of the Scottish people rather than on actual facts and the reality of consequences of Scottish Independence that they tend to rebuff Joseph Goebbels style with LIES that NEVER match actual reality. Instead the SNP believes that if they spout their lies often enough than the people will start to believe them and given the tightening in the polls their strategy for lying is working!

The Origins and Implications of the Scottish Referendum / Politics / Scotland

By: STRATFOR

The idea of Scottish independence has moved from the implausible to the very possible. Whether or not it actually happens, the idea that the union of England and Scotland, which has existed for more than 300 years, could be dissolved has enormous implications in its own right, and significant implications for Europe and even for global stability.

The United Kingdom was the center of gravity of the international system from the end of the Napoleonic Wars until World War II. It crafted an imperial structure that shaped not only the international system but also the internal political order of countries as diverse as the United States and India. The United Kingdom devised and drove the Industrial Revolution. In many ways, this union was a pivot of world history. To realize it might be dissolved is startling and reveals important things about the direction of the world.

Scottish Independence Bank Run Already Underway - Video / Politics / Scotland

Whilst most people in the UK or focused on the frenzy of politicking going on in Scotland in the build up to the September 18th referendum. However, unbeknown to most including the mainstream media is that there is already a bank run underway not only in terms of flight of capital from Scottish banks but that is also hitting the whole of the UK hard in terms of accelerating capital outflows.

SNP Fanatics Warn of Day of Reckoning for Scottish Independence No Campaigners / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A dark national socialist cloud is descending over Scotland as increasingly NO voters are becoming too scared to voice their opinion in the wake of the rising ferocity of YES campaigners who hurl abuse at NO voters that are being labeled as traitors, as the Scottish Nationalist Party more and more resembles the British Nationalist Party in rhetoric and bully boy tactics.

The mainstream press is becoming full of reports of outbreaks of vandalism, abuse and even assault on NO campaigners and voters, which culminates in today's warning by the former deputy leader of the Scottish National Socialists that there will be a DAY OF RECKONING for NO Campaigners following a YES victory with dark conations that one can only wonder at what this DAY of RECKONING would result in.

Scottish Independence Would Shake Up the Global System / Politics / Scotland

By: John_Mauldin

The United States is just starting to think about the upcoming elections (for whatever reason, the vast majority of people don’t focus on politics until after Labor Day), but there is another election happening “over the pond,” where the polls have just made everybody do a double-take. I am of course referring to the referendum on Scottish independence, which will be held next week. Voters opposing the measure were a clear majority for months, but their numbers began slipping a few weeks ago; and as of last few days the contest is basically even, with the election probably to be decided by the undecided.

The opinion polls paint a picture of a too close to call Scottish Independence vote on September 18th which even saw a 51% to 49% lead for the YES campaign just a few days ago that triggered much panic across the political spectrum and financial markets.

However, as I concluded in my recent in depth analysis that the actual probability for Scotland voting YES is just 30% rather than the near 50/50 proposition that the mainstream press has itself in a frenzy over:

Peter St. Onge writes: Back when Quebec was weighing secession from Canada, I was a lowly American undergrad living in Montreal. It was an exciting time, since in America we have our railroads torn up and population starved when we secede. Now that Scotland is going through the motions, I figured I’d stir the pot, economically.
