  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-scotland-61956472 So here we go again, another major driver for Scottish Independence.
  2. I do wonder if today will be seen as a watershed moment for Scottish Independence. It looks like all the mainstream "unionist" political parties have agreed to simply tell Scotland that they will not be allowed to keep the pound. BBC LINK It is basically unfriendly - the UK will not share the pound, it is a valuable asset and if Scotland becomes independent sharing this asset will diminish it and create difficulties for both countries as currency unions require messy institutional compromises with sovereignty and policy issues. The Unionists are saying to the Scottish Nationalists that If they want to have a grown up country then it has to be independent with its own currency (or pooled within an established currency union like the Euro), you cannot demand the UK diminishes its own currency - that is what independence means. I'm not sure how the Scottish electorate will view this moment. Will they see it as unfriendly and bullying and harden nationalist sentiments with them going "well, right then - no pound it is then". Or will they see it as being pragmatic showing the realities of Independence and the difficulties and costs it will take. No doubt, the Unionist parties forcing the issue is a deliberate strategic move. Will it be positive, or negative, who knows, but if I was wavering towards independence and I saw the UK being deliberately unfriendly, I wonder if that would make me more or less inclined to support staying in union with the UK.
