This Scottish independence campaign has revealed many things to the Scottish public and opposition parties about
‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond and unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola
They aren’t that clever.
They have fundamentally botched this Scottish independence campaign making so many mistakes in key areas, some people might opined that they have sabotaged their own campaign from within.
On currency, the correct answer to the question which currency should an independent
use is the Scottish pound. Scotland
It was always the Scottish pound, not such as a sign of faith but a statement of intent.
It was botched!
Jim Sillars, the ex SNP deputy leader has his voice to the growing disapproval of the independent minded people on the incredibly poor SNP clique's tactics.
He is blunt, correct and nails it to the mast; Alex Salmond’s plans for
currency are dismissed as “stupidity on stilts”. Scotland
Why would someone who says he believes in Scottish independence give huge control over
economy to ? London
Stop and think about that for a minute.
The answer is in two parts, first don't 'scare the horses' to get people to vote for independence, making them think nothing has changed and secondly, stupidity and laziness, couldn't be bothered to do the work.
In a magnificent broadside, Sillars also says that Salmond has a “clueless” plan.
Jim Sillars said:
“The whole purpose of independence is to escape from control of
economic power. I am not voting to go back into it.” London
Like many "proper" Nationalists, he sees the SNP clique isn't acting in
interest but in their own. Scotland
So, Salmond faces attacks on two fronts over his plan for a currency union, "proper" Nationalists and the Unionists appalled by staggering incompetence.
The Unionist camp must have loved Wednesday’s speech by Bank of
Governor Mark Carney; it wasn't what the SNP wanted as they tried to create an
image that they are pushing events forward. England
Carney's speech leaves them isolated and increasingly out of touch.
Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon aren't the people to lead
to independence. Scotland
Salmond is a joke figure, pick an area and the SNP clique have taken their eye off the ball, health, law and order, education, three areas under their direct control which are a shambles.
Yes, a shambles.
And all three areas controlled by Salmond's inner group of Sturgeon, MacAskill and Russell. Sturgeon was moved before the considerable cracks and failure to deliver became apparent in her health brief.
So much for the problem of have having "too many talented people".
Salmond really does set the bar incredibly low.
Now, Salmond wants to ceding
national sovereignty as soon as he gets, to parcel out the work to ,
then use grudge, grievance and malcontent to use as a lever for their failures
and why Scots should return them at elections because they have the
Under Salmond and Sturgeon decisions on

Still think nirvana is around the corner, still think you are getting Nordic welfare, still think austerity is going to be a thing of the past?
Carney also mentioned if there was to be a Sterling pact, the
would have to agree to bail out Scottish banks if there was another financial
So, the rules would be strict, and not as Salmond keeps saying that

The Coalition say such a monetary union is “highly unlikely”.
And Better Together leader Alistair Darling says Carney left Salmond’s plan “dead in the water”.
Patrick Harvie of the Scottish Greens is having a good independence campaign personally, however, it picked the wrong side, which could impact his party's electoral success in future.
It's a tricky one, choosing sides.
Ex Labour MP Dennis Canavan, the chair the advisory board of Yes Scotland also support the idea of a Scottish currency, but its too late to change tack since the White Paper has been published.
That document is sheer tripe; perhaps it should have been re-named '
One wonders how long before people really understand that they have been sold a pig in a poke?
Imagine been asked to buy a broken product that doesn't work with a 'guarantee' that it will be fixed later but will be lesser than the previous model.
I think the Scottish independence campaign should be pulled for several reasons, mainly because the current SNP clique isn't fit for purpose.
