Let Scotland have its referendum

On the day of Parliament’s historic vote that Article 50 could be triggered, the BBC led their 10pm News on the whining Scotswoman making indefinite noises about another referendum on Scottish independence.

We all know it would be economically disastrous for Scotland. Maybe the aim is to extract more autonomy and much needed English money in order to keep Scotland in the union. Or maybe the SNP fears losing its Holyrood majority at the next election, so it’s now or never – even though most Scots tell pollsters they don’t want another independence referendum any time soon.

Call the SNP’s bluff. Give the pauper province its referendum. English politicians shouldn’t put their necks on the line; they’ll only be criticised during the referendum and afterwards, whatever the result.

And they certainly shouldn’t throw more English money at Scotland.

For a change in this referendum, let’s have a bus advertising a big number – the money England will save if Scotland leaves. It will get lots of media coverage and it won’t cost Arron Banks much.

There is a net transfer of around £9 billion a year from the rest of the UK to Scotland. An independent Scotland would have to increase taxes or cut spending by more than £1,000 per person.

English politicians should give the pauper province its referendum and stand aside.
