Comment posted The eurozone crisis and the Independence referendum: time for proactive postponement? by Graeme McCormick.
I’m intigued by your assertion that remaining part of the UK provides ” safety in numbers and the degree of shelter offered effectively by the powerhouse of London and the south east”
The major problem for the UK economy is its over-dependence on the financial sector, a financial sector which is predicated on money which has no real value at all.
Apart from Germany the most successful countries in Europe, and the ones best prepared to withstand the economic fallout, are Scandinavia and Finland.
It’s not size which matters, it’s being sensible and having a sense of your true worth.
London is also the subsidy junkie of the UK grotesquely supported by public funds way above anything any other nation or region of the UK receives on a per capita basis. Economic meltdown will cause the withdrawal of most of that unsustainable support.
If the Uk is going to take the economic hit there is no way in which the London economy will offer shelter. London is the self inflicted sick man of the UK probably Europe ,currently with a patina of wealth ( all fur and nae knickers comes to mind!) and it’s about to have its crutches kicked away.
It will be the rest of the Uk which will have to bale it out.
While Scotland will not find its neighbour wanting, Independence offers a future based on real understandable money and the re-industrialisation of Scotland through renewables,smart manufacturing, and sustainable repopulation of our rural communities.
As the failure of the UK political establishment to handle the crisis becomes ever more apparent the developing majority for Independence will increase significantly.
We have an ideal pilot in Alex Salmond steering the good ship Scotland through the stormy seas. By suggesting the postponement of the Referendum you remove our rudder and we’ll be at the mercy of a financial Corryvreckan

Please prove your assertion that Scotland’s renewables developments are subsidised by Westminster.
As official uk government stat accept that Scotland is s net contributor to the UK tax take so any subsidy comes from the Scottish taxpayer just as hshe subsidises nuclear power too

I think we might have more regard for them if they all said they would only take their basic councillor salary and forego the extra payments.
All councillors should be part of the administration but have a free vote except for the appointment of lead councillors which should be divided up in proportion to the population share of each area committee.
That might just put a sort of break on factionalism
