The smart money at the bookies is on voting No to independence.
For a considerable time, Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minster Nicola Sturgeon has been the ‘face of independence’.
And during that time, Ms. Sturgeon who laughingly says her “nationalism” is based on social justice has spectacularly failed to change the minds of Scots.
Nicola Sturgeon is the granddaughter of an English woman, and she wants to ‘save’ us poor Scots from the horrible English at Westminster who oppress us.
Who is going to save Scotland from Nicola Sturgeon?
Well, it seems that we all are going to have to do this; Scotland is voting No to Alex Salmond and No to Nicola Sturgeon.
And some people are putting their money where their mouth is, a mystery punter has placed a whopping £50,000 bet on Scotland voting “no” to independence.
This bet has pushed the odds of a ‘Yes’ victory to their longest ever.
The punter will get his money back and make a few quid on it, it wouldn’t be much but voting No is the safe bet as the Scottish National Party continues to head towards meltdown.
Have you noticed that Salmond and Sturgeon are screaming more?
A higher voice doesn’t mean you are winning the argument and it also doesn’t mean the rest of Scotland is deaf.
So, with the Edinburgh guy placing his bet this week, it resulted in Ladbrokes immediately shortening their odds on a no vote from 1/7 to 1/8.
And the odds will get shorter because as the Scottish National Party continues to show that they are a ‘rat ship’ headed up by Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon.
Previously a Glasgow punter had placed a £200,000 bet against independence in July, as the money at the bookies pours in for No, who in their right mind would place a Yes Vote?
If there is anyone that stupid, they should be named so they can be talked into not wasting their money.
Ladbrokes say the huge bets demonstrate increasing confidence among Scots that the referendum will fail to deliver a “yes” vote.
They also highlight that although the SNP talk about the supposed ‘popularity’ of Salmond and Sturgeon, we should remember that is based on what the caliber is at Holyrood, other parties have to raise their game considerably.
Things are so bad in the Yes Campaign that Ladbrokes has changed its odds for bets on an SNP victory from 5/2 to 5/1.
That is another personal blow for Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minster Nicola Sturgeon, the longest ever odds so far on the issue.
If you believe in miracles then you would win £5 for every £1 you spend, but you would be better to bank the cash and not be so stupid.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said:
“We’ve never known ‘yes’ odds as big as this in history”.
Well hang around the odds will get worse as angry wee Nat Nicola Sturgeon feels the pressure, she is already starting to crack with her ranting in Holyrood and talking utter tripe on shipbuilding, pure delusional thinking.
“We’ve taken some serious cash on a ‘no’ outcome again suggesting confidence in the referendum failing is an all time high.”
A spokesman for Better Together said:
“More and more people don’t want Alex Salmond to gamble with Scotland’s future. Placing bets is interesting, but we need everybody who believes Scotland is better off part of the UK to do their bit to make sure we win this referendum.”
In a mealy mouth response, Yes Scotland, the unofficial SNP front which is run by the SNP, staffed by the SNP and directed by the SNP insisted the punters had thrown away their cash.
“Unfortunately these individuals have just wasted their money because we are very confident that Scotland will vote Yes in 2014. Hopefully it’s small change for them.’ We hope, for this person’s sake, they have plenty money to waste on losing bets because the indications we are getting – on the streets, in public meetings and on the doorsteps – are making us increasingly confident the people of Scotland are going to vote Yes. A recent poll showed that a swing of only just over 4 per cent is needed for Yes to move ahead.”
This is the same type of shite that Alex Salmond said in 2010 about Westminster during the failed ‘elected a local champion’ campaign, not a single ‘local champion’ was elected.
Because everyone saw through Alex Salmond’s clique, the SNP is run as a party within a party; the people selected were far from being ‘local champions’ at any level.
So, people just ignored the SNP as a ‘fringe party’, even the Lib Dems were more credible as Westminster MPs.
Last month a TNS-BMRB poll revealed that the support for independence was “flatlining” at just 25 percent.
I guess the lack of talent in Yes Scotland is really starting to bite hard, Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was the wrong choice as the ‘face of independence’. She doesn’t attract voters; others have to do that work for her with promises and SNP bribes.
Nicola Sturgeon, the granddaughter of an English woman, the woman who saved Scotland in the Union.
Just think, in 2015, she will be able to sit in the Royal box at Wimbledon while the SNP get those working class Scots who haven’t woken up to the con that the SNP is there to help working class Scottish people.
Nicola has certain ‘helped’ herself as her family household is said to benefit to the tune of a quarter of a million pounds a year using the SNP 'standing up for Scotland' con.
Nicola is a real hero, just ask the workers losing their jobs at Govan Shipbuilders, she 'stood up for them recently!
