Westminster Cabinet Reshuffle – Scottish Independence

Most commentators seem to agree that the Westminster government has now taken a further step towards exiting the EU and the Convention on Human Rights. This certainly affects the considerations surrounding the Independence referendum.

Personally I would prefer Scotland to have its own currency outside of the EU as the first step. It would appear that this environment has done Norway no harm as I read that its Oil Fund owns on average 2.5% of every listed company in Europe! As a small new nation we would be swamped and ineffective in the  EU and hidebound by its rules and regulations. (I do know that Norway has restrictions in trading with Europe.) As for currency why should anyone think that a sterling currency union won’t in the long run face the same problems as the Euro Union?

If  we vote YES let’s be truly independent.
