I talked about this earlier this week and may Robbie Burns boo me from heaven if I did not say it again:  An independent Scotland CAN use the pound sterling if they choose!  They can even transition to either their own pound (I like the Clydesdale Bank notes myself for the new Scotland pound notes) or the euro or even the US Dollar!

Here is the article from the Scotsman with this in it:

It is the first survey of opinion since Chancellor George Osborne, along with Labour and the Liberal Democrats, warned that Scotland could not share sterling after a Yes vote in the referendum.

I do not expect SNP Leader Alex Salmond to hire me to promote independence although if he does, I will promptly disclose it right here!  But William Wallace will be pleased with me!

Support for independence is up anyway!

The gap between the Yes and No camps is down to nine points, with the independence campaign on 38 points, while the pro-Union side is on 47 per cent, according to the poll by Survation. The narrowing gap is down from 20 points in a survey by the same pollster last month.


Support for Yes has been edging up since the turn of the year and the latest survey represents another rise.

But just like El Salvador and Panama with the US Dollar, the independent Scotland can adopt sterling as their currency if they choose.  And since the pound notes in Scotland are identical to the notes in England there is no loss of value.  Time for Scotland to take back what was lost by stealth and held by violence:  Independence.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
