    Why is Salmond always the guy to be condemned ? he is just a spokesperson for the party, saying and doing what the party members want him to do/say, as for us not being able to look after our own affairs ! well we managed well enough before we were sold down the river by a load of landed gentry

    Well, I reckon we should share and share alike, have been doing for some time I believe. If the Shetlanders would like to move to the South East cos lifes a bit rough up there I'm sure that will be just fine. After all, every other fecker is coming here so why not join the band wagon. We probably will have a bit of trouble understanding the lingo but at least we'll be able to spot them in the dark. The Supermarkets can stock up with Haggis and Neeps too. Make you feel at home. Every other fecker does. Oh, and invent a few bairns that you have left in the croft. You can collect some child benefit.

    I'd still like the SNP to explain how they can get to declaring independence from a Yes vote on the question - "Should Scotland be an independent country?" other than by holding another referendum asking the question - "Do you want Scotland to become an independent country?" because the question being asked next year is only asking people for their opinion  on whether Scotland should be an independent country or not, not whether they want Scotland to become an Independent country. 

    Or is that the SNP's "Get Out Of Jail" card if the result goes tits up for them ???

    Do Scots believe they are an equal partner within the United Kingdom?

    Are we bollocks! The wording of the question was also negotiated between the UK and Scottish parliaments. Salmond actually wanted two options on the ballot form...

    Now dont get me wrong I am all for reasonable rights for employees but this is what happens when companys feel they can no longer deal with the headaches caused by activists. £300m they were going to invest here but looks like they have cut their losses and ran. All down to the 'shop floor' votes. Still, plenty of time now for them to think on.

    Yip, agree, place was losing £10m a month, any business losing money is going to have to look at their costs...

    That said, would you invest £300m in a loss making plant, and where did the savings in employee costs come to cover that amount...

    Think there's a bit more to it...
