Flower of Scotland?


posted on 16th of september, 2014

On 18 th September 2014 Scotland votes ' yes ' for independence or no for
' better together ' :




As some point out a vote for yes will tear the two countries and the union apart.

One effect of yes would be that Scotland has no currency and no central bank. Alex Salmond says they'd continue to use the pound.


Some say 'yes' as in the flower of Scotland



Others say that common sense will prevail and it will be say no to divorce


Pray for the UK to be better together on Friday morning 19 th September 2014.

Britain, France, Italy , Spain and Germany are more or less equal .............. but chop off Scotland and Great Britain loses the Great and becomes little Englanders. That's why for me it is a desperate situation tomorrow.

As an independentist Catalan I think that if a matrimony is not doing well a divorce can achieve peace and mutual respect which in the. Catalan issue is the main problem: Lack of respect from Madrid side.

Splitting up is madness in my opinion and I hope it won't happen.

Gordon Brown: best speech ever!


posted on 17th of september, 2014

Until today I wasn't a fan of Gordon Brown.

Nationalism is about greed; ' it's our oil ' :

Gordon Brown spoke passionately about the creation of the national health service free at the point of need.




He went on to talk about creation of welfare state and provision of pensions.

Perstock............. it is a wonderful outcome.................. nationalists are harking back to historical battles and the real danger was weakening Britain in Europe and the wider world.
The definitions and quotes on nationalism are very revealing. Thank you for your support.

Interresting and promising result.
Nationalism belongs to the history back hundreds of years.
Better to be proud as a Scot or a Swede on other - positive - topics. Instead of pure greed or isolationism or even worse - xenophobia...
Cheers David!
