In a major blow to Alex Salmond and the YES campaign, Better Together wheeled out a major expert to decry Scottish Independence.
The following are direct quotes attributed to them.
“I am a proud, patriotic Scot, passionate about my heritage and my country. But I am not a nationalist.
“We have still been able to retain our proud identity whilst being a part of Britain.
“I share many of the same concerns that other folk do with regards to independence.”
““Economically, the costs of change will be vast and money that should be directed into important areas like hospitals, schools and the vulnerable in society will be swallowed by bureaucracy.
“Many people are struggling to make ends meet — how will they cope if prices escalate because of this change?”
““Welfare helps many of the most vulnerable in society. I don’t believe you should break what’s working.
“Then there’s the question of the military — what will become of the regiments?
“Another concern is there is nothing in place with regards to the EU, plus there is the question of our currency.
“We should remain a part of Great Britain and instead of wasting money on this change, we should put it into the areas that need it the most.”
Who is this expert which Better Together thinks will strike such fear into the YES campaign?
Drum Roll Please!!!……..
None other than Britains Got Talent finalist ……Susan Boyle.
Talented singer as she may be, she has never struck me as such a deep thinker.
Did she really say these words attributed to her??
In my best Victor Meldrew voice… I DO NOT BELIEVE IT!
For Better Together to use someone who has mild learning difficulties in this way is frankly disgraceful!
How much lower can they go?
I suspect we shall find out in due course, but its nauseous seeing them scraping the bottom of the barrel as it is.
