Deficits and Black Holes

Much has been spouted by Labour and their Unionist cronies about Scotland seeking to have FFA…Full Fiscal Autonomy. They say it is a terribly bad thing….Very Very Very Bad thing…..Scotland just could not cope and we would all be in the gutter if it were implemented..

To back this up they have their figures from their tame in house economists(Fortune Tellers) saying that if implemented this year Scotland would have a £7.6Billion deficit….

They call this a Black Hole in Scotlands finances. Oh woe is us if the SNP get their own way by getting Full Fiscal Autonomy… Yet not so very long ago…..Back in the Bad Old Days of the Independence referendum, did these parties not pledge,nay Vow, that Scotland would have super duper devo max if we voted against Independence?

Did they not shout this from the roof tops and pledge their souls in the Daily Record whilst crossing their hearts and hope to die if they tell a porky pie on this?

Gordy Brown, the Saviour of the Union and all the rest as reported on the BBC Regional news were offering the closest thing to Independence….Home Rule.. We had their solemn oath and promise on it.. Davie Cameron, Nick Clegg, Ed the Nerd ALL signed up to it..

What happened to that Vow? Oh yes…We got the Smith Commission…and the Vow got shredded to bits…

We who voted YES knew this would happen, so no great surprise.. But what of the promise….

Welll…..We all know to trust it eh? Home Rule….Super Duper Max, FFA….. Aww forget it they say….its really a very bad thing…You will be bust, we cannot possibly let that happen to you…

We don’t want you to have a £7.6 Billion deficit….A horrible Black Hole which you will disappear into never to be seen again.. What of the UK Deficit …..Much more than 10 times that of Scotland….Oh no….you have never had it so good….the UK is the most vibrant economy in the Galaxy now. Balls…Ed Balls.

Look at it this way…. Every country runs a deficit….It is like you and I running and maintaining a credit card…..Funny that we are not already all in the gutter by now?

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

    Everybody else has one, what’s so wrong with us having one…

    It’s obvious that WM don’t want Scotland to have Full Fiscal Autonomy, they would lose the Tax from Oil, Gas, Water, Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene Aircraft Fuel, Whisky, Tobacco and more plus they’d lose our VAT. Westminster would lose an absolute fortune leaving Scotland much better off. Only the Unionists could come up with this invisible Black Hole. They are talking utter drivel.
    Scotland was promised full fiscal powers during the end of the Referendum, if WM does not fulfil its agreement , then Scotland must have another Referendum on this broken VOW.
    Scotland with FFA would have a minimum of £17.9Bn in Surplus not a £7.6 deficit with the crappy Barnett Formula, this is why Westminster don’t want Scotland to have FFA. Scotland would become a richer Nation than The South Britons, therefore they want to deny us our right to FFA and our right to Self Determination..
