Until tonight, I was a big Obama fan.

Tomorrow, I burn the T-shirt. I never had him down as an Imperialist, as another Bush, but he is.

However, his betrayal of democracy will have a silver lining. In doing his chum Dave a favour, he has misunderstood one thing, that Scotland as a nation, the place where the Polaris nuclear subs were dumped, until the US made Tridents replaced them, is anti-American and anti-Imperialist in its soul, a position that will be underlined by his interference in our affairs.

Hear this, Mr President: ‘Yes, we will!’

    I’m English and proud to be so, but also proud of my Scotish heritage, I think James McIlroy summed it up very well in a recent interview on the BBC, they were pushing him for a yes or no position, quite rightly he didn’t give in to that but said. If you want to be a stand alone nation then vote yes, but not for financial reasons good or bad but because you want to be a country in your own right. Couldn’t agree more, frankly if being £500 quid a year worse or better off is the reason you’d vote yes or no then shame on you. I was fairly ambivilent about the whole situation but now I’m with you, yes all the way. The way the governemt are behaving is in my view driving people to vote yes.
    You know, I think secretly they want a yes vote, why else act like the school bully. Getting Obama to do that will surely win more yes votes, you should be pleased, it smacks of desparation.
    If the UK governemt were to say OK, Scotland you are currently British citizens, you have a vote, we’d rather you stayed part of the union, however if you wish to go it alone we will support that decision, we will help with the transition in what ever way we can.
    That would then make the debate about Scotland and what’s best for it and it’s people.

    Instead we get – you can’t have the pound – you’ll loose this, you won’t get that. Frankly I’d want nothing to do with a government like that. That makes it about England trying to control to subjugate Scotland, I get my say next May, regretably if Scotland does go then so do many labour and nationalist seats, so Cammo steams in – I refer to my previous comment.

    I always thought Alex Salmond was a bit of a twat to be frank, but I though he handled the Obama intervention very well, instead of attacking, he welcomed the comments and said that he would look to carry on the special relationship etc etc. He’s learning!!!

    Still wondering why the president of the so called greatest democracy of the world is paying lip service to Davey. In any case: thanks Mr. president, the Yes campaign thanks you a lot. Don’t ever start believing Scotland will run away and cower in front of your bullying.

    Obviously I missed President Obama’s comments about Scotland’s upcoming decision. What did he say and when did he say it? Might the US press have chosen to ignore it? Please advise.

      Try visiting some UK online news outlets, then form your own view of US news priorities.

    I’m definitely not anti-American, any more than I’m anti-English (bit less actually) but most definitely agin both their governments
