The Scottish Independence Referendum

How to Speak…

I believe that if a Government appears to mislead its own people, it is time for ordinary men and women to speak up. I am an ordinary man. Not a politician. Nor someone who is important in any way. What follows is my opinion, a personal view…
  1. How to speak Salmond…“the people who live and work in Scotland are the best people to make decisions about Scotland”….
  2. …is Salmond for “vote Yes in the Referendum and we’ll break up your country forever, change who you are – so that you turn your back on so many things and people that you love and care for – and then we’ll make the decisions for Scotland in the future because we know best”
  3. How to speak Sturgeon…“the White Paper is the most comprehensive blueprint for an independent  country ever produced”…
  4. …is Sturgeon for “the White Paper is a White Manifesto full of half-truths, half promises and nationalist propaganda, misleading the people of Scotland on a truly industrial scale
  5. How to speak Swinney… “after Independence Scotland will be £3.2 billion better off, which is £600 for each and everyone of us”…
  6. …is Swinney for  “after Independence we plan to gain £3.2billion through economic sleight of hand which will mean each of us gain £600 at the expense of our fellow countrymen and women, the people of England, Wales and Northern Ireland”
  7. How to speak SNP… “once we hold all the levers of power we will make the most of Scotland for the people of Scotland”…
  8. …is SNP for “just as we have used the levers of power we already have to manipulate the agenda and mislead our own people, once we have all the levers of power we will be able to completely dominate Scotland”
  9. How to speak nationalist… “Should Scotland be an Independent country?”…
  10. …is nationalist for “Should Scotland throw away the independence it already has – with effective democracy across the UK, Scotland and Local Government, evolved from over 300 years of shared culture, history and experience, supporting each other through good times and bad – and replace it with a system where nationalists make all the decisions for our country and we all have to turn our backs on family, friends and colleagues that happen to live in other parts of our country outside Scotland?”
