What a fuss there has been about Plan B, but can someone explain to me why monetary union should exercise the people?
For most people thinking about the referendum and Independence, at least those I have spoken to, don’t really give a stuff what currency we use, and that includes a whole load of them on the NO side too.
So why has there been such a fuss about something that really has not much bearing to peoples lives as long as they have income in some tradeable currency?
The only ones to really get exercised by this are those in Just Say Naw ( for no damn good reason) side. Their politicians and tame media, and maybe those who depend on trading money as living in the finance sector. Lets just say I don’t have much faith in most politicians, and I trust the media who parrots their every word without question even less.
We could have monetary union, we could use the pound without it, we could establish a new Scots currency, or we could use another currency altogether. All of these have positives and negatives to them economically.
The present Scots government prefers monetary union, but the unionist mob from Westminster say NAW!
Well all the more fool them!
Without our assets backing the currency, just watch the pound sinking like a stone, and facing devaluation as it did once before.
If Westminster truly believed what they say, then they really are more hopeless and down right stupid than anyone could ever give them credit for, it is more Kamikaze than a blind Japanese war pilot heading straight towards Hiroshima.
There is Plan B, Plan C and Plan D, but we do not intend using any of them, hence why bother talking about something which just will not happen, It really is a waste of time talking about, but then again, they know that too. That is exactly the reason that they are talking about it, anything but actually talk about matters which really matter, anything which will distract from the real issues of peoples lives. Anything but talk about Independence and what we can do with it.
How many of us want to become currency traders? Not many I would think, just those fixated on monopoly board games.
As for their argument about the economy, that is garbage too, and I don’t care how many economic experts either side produces. Nobody knows what will happen to any economy tomorrow, next month or next year, if they did, the 2008 crash would not have happened.
Only Politicians, the media, Bankers, Financiers end economists give a flying fig about talking of future economic events, and they all like gambling addicts get it wrong, but still carry on.
Economists are the Tea Leaf cup readers of Money. Bet your life on them? Nae Chance!
Stake your Independence on them…..Awa and bile yer heid and don’t be so daft.
