GUEST,gutcher BS: Scotland does not exist (153* d) RE: BS: Scotland does not exist 21 Feb 13


Three points are usually raised against Scots who have the temerity to stand up for themselves:--[1]They are petty small minded nationalists
[2]They are mean and come of a mean spirited race.                  [3]They live on the bounty of their more prosperous neighbours.
Points [1] and[2] are usually made by people who use them to cover their own leanings in these directions:-- point [1] has been refuted by Allan Conn, point [2] can be refuted by reference to any national money raising effort for charity where the Scots consistantly donate two and a half to three and a half times more per head than their southern neighbours.
Point [3]:-- see an article by James Maxwell in the New Statesman for 6/11/11, also G.E.R.S. Scotland, if these details were widely disseminated to the Scottish public there would be a landslide yes vote in the coming referendum. Unfortunately the mainstream media do not give coverage to facts that would damage the better together campaign.
