England Is Sucking Value From Scotland As Hard As It Can

"Johnson wants to retain Scotland precisely because he knows London needs its economic support. Ignore the rigged data in Government Expenditure and Revenue Scotland. The reality is that little England knows that it is sucking value from Scotland as hard as it can. And it does not want that to stop. And the chance that it might is what petrifies them."

How The UK Loads Debt Onto Scotland

"So, with no borrowing powers, Scotland could not gave accrued debt, and even as a region of the U.K., it has always been in surplus. Even under the worst governance imaginable in an independent Scotland, we would have been better off than we are now. All GERS ever shows is how badly the Union has failed Scotland."

Why don't the Scottish Government wise up to this and stop behaving as if GERS are gospel?  Why don't they produce proper staistics of their own to show Scotland's true economic health.

How Would An Independent Scotland Pay for it?

"It’s that time of year again when unionists start spreading lies about how an independent Scotland is subsidised by taxpayers money from the rest of the United Kingdom. This is an argument that supporters of independence have often struggled to tackle. In fact a recent YouGov poll found that, despite a majority saying they would vote Yes, one of the weakest arguments on independence was the economy.

There are may reasons for this, but today we’ll touch on just one, which is important. Right now unionists have complete control of the narrative. By using GERS each year they propose the argument that Scotland’s high government deficit is bad for us and that we rely on taxes to fund our spending. Instead of actually debunking this argument we accept it. We agree with unionists that our deficit is bad and we agree that we need taxes to fund our spending. So we’re forced on the defensive to prove to them that we can lower the deficit.

This is completely and utterly wrong. So now it’s time to turn the tables."  Now read on...

Some Important Facts

"In almost every area of public life, in almost every public service, from the NHS to policing, the evidence is there to prove that Scotland and by obvious association the SNP Government, is running this country far better than the Unionist parties in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Independent sources such as the UN and the Nuffield Trust often praise the Scottish Government’s actions while condemning those of the UK Government.

Here is a list of only 184 facts..."

Scotland Won't Need To Repay The UK's National Debt

"These arguments lead to at least three conclusions. 

The first is that Scotland does not have any obligation to compensate  England any part of the  so-called UK national debt as agent for the rest of the UK because no part of that debt can at present be attributed to Scotland.

The second conclusion is that even if Scotland did have a notional liability owing to the rest of the UK  the capital balance on the loan would not need repayment because there is no indication that the remaining UK will be repaying any of its debt, and therefore there is no reason for Scotland to make payment to the rest of the UK for something that they will not be doing.

Third, even if debt was due right now it would be the case that around £19bn was due to Scotland."
