Many have been been asking, and many have been wanting, The Positive Case for the Union.
It is not as far off as we might assume, and it is not that Better Together hasn’t told us it, for they have!
In case you had lost it all in their negativity towards Independence, I thought I should as a matter of fairness repeat it for you here.
We are Better Together, repeat ad Infinitum …..
Because the UK will retain its top table in the UN.
The UK will remain a strategic partner of NATO with nuclear weapons based in Scotland
The UK will have a reasonably strong currency backed up by North Sea Oil
The Uk will be able to sit as a major partner in Europe and exert its opt outs, which unfortunately require detrimental measures to Scotlands farmers and fishermen, but its for the common good.
The UK will be able to finance foreign wars for the purpose of democracy that suits what our senior partners in the US dictate, and we might unfortunately lose a few Scottish soldiers in the process.
The UK will be economically stronger with Scotlands wealth.
We are Better Together, It is best for all of us.
The UK can continue to impose taxes and measures which stop the poor getting richer
The UK will defend us from terrorists as long as they remain in their own countries and we aren’t at war with them.
As you can see…..There is a positive case for the Union….
It is just that the positive case doesn’t involve us not being in it!
As for what Scots want? Well…..That doesn’t matter as long as we do as we are told.
