To show how much contempt the Scottish National Party has for the people of Scotland, they are willing to destroy Scotland’s life line services to the people.
‘Fake Scot’’ Angus Robertson wants to amend the new Scotland Bill to allow Holyrood to bring in full fiscal autonomy.
This would be a financial disaster of mega proportions that would put Scotland form in the same bracket as Greece.
The Nationalists have submitted an amendment to make MSPs responsible for taxation, borrowing and public expenditure north of the border.
Given the quality of Scotland’s MSPs who are regarded as second class politicians of limited ability, this proposal by the SNP at Westminster will be voted down!
It is an amendment which has no chance of success because it is all about creating division not helping Scotland make its way in the economic world.
Angus Robertson challenged the Labour Party to back their bid to bring in “meaningful new powers for Scotland”, they should do what David Cameron did to Angus Robertson, tell him to fuck off.
The SNP ran a campaign for Westminster based on deceit, yesterday they didn’t want an inquiry into FFA despite the fact; it was a central plank of the SNP’s general election manifesto campaign.
To the Nationalists, this is all a game; and one that the Unionist parties should ignore, the more people who refuse to do business with the Nats the better Scotland’s prospects will be.
How are the SNP going to fix the black hole of a funding gap of £7.6 billion?
The SNP want to jack up taxes, Scotland would become the highest taxed place in the UK, and we would see no difference to the services in Scotland. Despite the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) warnings that the SNP want to press ahead but I suspect this is more show than policy.
Only a fool would destroy a country.
And the news just got worse for the SNP as ‘Scotland’s oil’ as the SNP describe it has taken a sever battering as a new report suggested that oil revenues will almost be wiped out.
So, in the real world, the SNP don’t have any credibility whatsoever, they think the UK could be their proxy piggy bank, when they crash the economy, the English will simply write a cheque.
Life doesn’t work that, and the people of Scotland should release that once the money dries up, unpopular Nicola Sturgeon would then go the way of trying to get loans to bail her out, this would be like quicksilver and speed Scotland towards even greater disaster and debt.
It is a moved designed to wreck the UK.
The independent Office of Budget Responsibility predicts tax revenues from oil and gas will be just £2 billion from 2020/21 to 2040/41 down from its original projection of £37 billion. Oil is not the way to base the success of your country on, you need a mixed economy and the SNP cannot provide the circumstances to enable that to happen.
OBR director Robert Chore described the fall as “dramatic”.
If Angus Robertson amendment was voted through everything would get hit, then the SNP would whip up anti English hatred saying that the English deliberately forced FFA through too soon.
This amendment is the same old SNP tactic of grudge, grievance and malcontent.
56 SNP MPs at Westminster who were supposed to ‘stand up for Scotland’, but the reality is that they are solely standing up for SNP interests.
Someone should teach them a lesson, and use the Scotland bill to take back some powers so that Scotland can build new nuclear power stations.
If people want to play games, let them play but let’s introduce pain and see how long and how much the can take before they break.
