British foreign minister insults Scotland
Peter Hain, a London based idiot claimed that Scotland was in a better position
to influence world affairs by remaining part of the so called "UK".
He said "There is a lot to be said for being part of the
only state which is a member of the EU, Nato, the G8
and the Commonwealth, with a permanent seat on the
Security Council of the United Nations."
Most Scots don't give a dam , Hain.
We want education, health care, jobs, less pollution and a direct
voice in Europe. If London wants to keep on playing UN footsie in a
post Empire world good luck to them.
Of course the UN seat at the security council might be withdrawn from
London should the worlds 5th biggest oil producer (Scotland) get upset with
The Scots would also be free agents, just now we get what London thinks
we want and there is nothing we can do about it.
An independent Scotland would have 16 seats in Europe directly, our own trade
missions and could set our own policies NOT tow Londons.
A look at Scotland in Europe, NOT the UK
