Reasons Why Everyone In England Should Encourage Scotland To Become Independent
Recent surveys show that a majority of Scots want to make
their country independent.
(Most Scots, like the Welsh, do not understand
that their so-called Parliament is, in reality, merely a Regional Assembly.
Scotland and Wales are doomed to become regions of the EU superstate - while
England will be broken up into 9 regions.)
The English should support and
encourage the Scots in their battle for independence.
Here are the
1. If Scotland becomes independent and breaks up the United
Kingdom there will be an overwhelming argument for the English to be given their
own Parliament. All members of the new English Parliament will represent English
constituents. This means that only English MPs will be able to vote on issues
affecting English citizens. (Unlike the present Parliamentary system which
allows Scottish MPs, with no English constituents or English responsibilities,
to vote on issues which affect the English.)
2. If Scotland has been
given independence it will be possible (and crucial) for those founding the new
English Parliament to insist that only citizens born in England can be elected
as Members of the English Parliament. This will ensure that we can send all
Scottish politicians such as Blair, Brown and Reid back to their homeland. It
will also mean that only people who care for the culture, history and future of
England will control the nation's destiny.
3. The British Government
currently spends £1,503 more per head on Scottish citizens than it spends on
English citizens. This is why Scottish cancer patients are given life-saving
drugs which are denied to English patients. It is why English university
students must pay their tuition fees while Scottish students get their education
free (even if they are studying at an English university). It is why the elderly
in England must sell their homes to pay for nursing home care while the elderly
in Scotland get free nursing home care. It is why there are free eye tests and
free prescriptions for far more patients in Scotland than in England.
Scotland has a population of around 5 million. Of these only 163,000 are net
taxpayers. In other words, of the 5 million Scots, an astonishing 4,837,000 are
kept by English taxpayers.
5. An English Parliament could, and almost
certainly would, vote to leave the European Union. England would once again be a
strong and independent nation. Without the votes of Scottish MPs who support
Britain's membership of the EU (and who prevent our leaving) the English would
be free of European red tape and richer by several billion pounds a
6. Without Scotland and the EU to support the English would be much
better off. England could have much better schools and hospitals. And lower
If Scotland becomes independent the Scots will become a good deal
poorer. But the English, who have supported Scotland for years, will become a
good deal richer. Every Englishman and Englishwoman should encourage the Scots
in their fight for independence.

`Among the more robust
