The main BBC news at six last night and then the Scottish News which follows, carried stories about Scotland being told that we would have to negotiate and apply to join the EU(SSR).
The first ten minutes of the bulletin was taken up with unionist doom and gloom. Not only will we need to apply to join the EU(SSR) but following a majority voting Yes in the independence referendum our electricity would be much more expensive.
No one has asked the Scottish people if they want to stay in the EU(SSR) or not. I know polls have been published but come on, we are adult enough to know how those things can be manipulated to ensure the answer people paying for the poll want.
It’s easy to explain why the EU(SSR) would want to negotiate. They will want Scotland to join the Euro and to find out how much Scotland can give to prop up those countries that have lost the plot.
Anyway, it doesn’t sound like real independence if the EU(SSR) are telling us what to do. The Euro and the pound don’t sound like long term bets either. A Scottish pound? Scottish dollars?
Higher electricity prices then. Firstly energy generators in Scotland have to pay more than their English counterparts. Why because the further you are from London the more you have to pay to connect to the national grid. If we gain control of Scotland’s national grid we will pay LESS! A lot less.
Scotland is also a net exporter of electricity and it’s likely to be England who first suffer the indignation of the lights going off because they can no longer generate enough electricity to meet the demand. Ecks green power won’t be a lot of good mind you but he will keep following that path for his own reasons.
Again we have the unionists using doom and gloom, which seems to be their only tactic.
It’s likely that this sort of tactic will be used repeatedly and increasingly as the independence vote gets nearer and the BBC used to get that propaganda out there. Surely the Scottish people will see through this?
