Thread: Why are you voting yes

  1. #1

    Default Why are you voting yes

    The naysayers are having their say on voting no, so why don`t the yes voters have their say?

    I am voting "YES!" to take the burden off the English taxpayer..... they have to pay for their NHS prescriptions to subsidise Scotland and Wales (who get free prescriptions)..... it's just not cricket and I, for one, will be shouting out a LOUD "YES!" to free England from this waste of "union" tax funds (to appease the Scots).... I am quite happy to pay £89.99 for a prescription (in an independent Scotland) and £17,500 for a check up at my (non NHS) private Scottish "clinic".... it's about time we lost the NHS and the subsidies from "westminster" and went back to good traditional Scottish health care. The NHS is totally overrated and Westminster will have us believe that "opting out" is a bad thing..... it's the way forward!! Private health care (the more expensive the better) is the way forward.... just look at the American "model".... that's what I call premium health care! Scotland will be so rich and we will all be Millionaires from the oil so don't worry, we will be able to afford it.

    The Braveheart film said it all..... William Wallace (who was actually a WELSH man) declared "We will be free from Westminster! We will pay £89.99 per prescription and will be PROUD to be a nation of idiots who are free from our oppressor".

    I'll get my coat.

    And hat.

    I think you better get yer coat. Oor Wullie was born in SCOTLAND!!, just because his surname is Wallace, doesn't mean to say he was Welsh, no wonder this country is going the way it is when people don't even know the basics of history.

    Adolf Hitler was also born in Scotland (Methil)..... not a lot of people know that.........He hooked up with a fishwife called "Nancy" and they bore a child they named Alex.......

    Just cause you can't "google" it doesn't mean it isn't true.

    Salmond (Salmon), Sturgeon (Caviar), William Wallace (Pollock), Robert the Bruce (Monkfish), Alexander Graham Bell (anchovies), John Logie Baird (cod)........

    Can't you see the connection?

    They are all a bunch of fishy **********************************

    YES!!

    Sod the lot of them..... I'd like a street fight!

    YES!

    YES!

    Public disorder and division is what we need.......

    YES!

    Hatred toward our fellow human is the order of the day!

    NO!......... Independance and division from the best UNION "ever" (in the history of the world) is pure madness unless you want to be an idiot on a global scale.

    If you go on the Yes Scotland website, there is a very long list of FAQs, some I hadn't even thought of , the answer to most of them is; ach it'll be fine! I paraphrase.

    Born circa 1270, near Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland, William Wallace was the son of a Scottish landowner. He spearheaded his country’s long charge against the English toward freedom, and his martyrdom paved the way for eventual success

    This has degenerated into a very trolled thread. I would like the opinion of Orgers on the points raised in http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2014/05...east-ayrshire/ I thought Patrick Harvie was especially good, but Jim Sillars also made some excellent points. I think I will be voting Green next week in the European elections.

    The Greens are in it because they see it as their one and only opportunity to gain power or influence.

    Simples....

    "No" is such a negative word... Be positive, vote "Yes"
