Three blind mice

I am still laughing.  George Osborne, Ed Balls and Danny Alexander are agreed that an independent Scotland will not use the pound sterling. Look out three sets of crutches, someone, for each has shot himself in both feet.

Leaving aside the legality of this tripartite diktat, if that proves to be the case, it will be  a small price to pay to be rid of Mr Osborne, Mr Balls and even Mr Alexander, Westminster MP for about half of Scotland.  He will shortly be doing what all former Treasury ministers do when the electorate has found them out, namely collecting lucrative non-executive directorships in his new adopted homeland.

As Mel Gibson’s Wallace might have said, ‘They make take our pound, but they’ll never take our free will’.

Yes for Scotland.

      But surely the word means ” not relying on another, separate.. so gently explain why some in Scotland might want to keep the “£”please my friend.

    For our convenience, and to help the English.

    This is all bluster by Osborne. The notion seems to be that somehow, the £ sterling is English. It isn’t, it’s British, and its future will be part of the complex negotiations on separation that will follow a ‘Yes’ vote that is being made more likely by the day by the thuggish tactics of the Westminster parties.

    Another reality check; Ed Balls has no interest in Scotland itself. All he’s worried about are the 41 Westminster Labour seats that will vanish post-Independence. Similarly, Danny Alexander’s great fear is that as a Scots Westminster MP, he’ll be out of a job.
