Glasgow Herald

Do you think I could get a good rate for a quarter-page ad from the Glasgow Herald next Friday? There's always an opportunity somewhere ...

Post Scriptum: Seems like RBS, BOS, Scottish Widows and Lloyds have already got the message ...

I think you will find Raedwald, that they won't be in the EU, so we won't be allowed to do business with them.

Well that's what I was told by dear Mr. Clegg and dear Mr. Cameron. when they told me how silly I was for wanting my country to leave the EU.

You should save your money, yUK has sent it's top team of negotiators to jockland today, I am now certain that the electorate can be persuaded to tie it's future to a hollowed out, windmill-dependent, failed state (but which one you ask?)
I am especially enjoying camoron's discomfiture-oh my, how to monetize all the crown estates windmill leases and explain that to the plebs if the jocks vote yes.
Lazy and stupid camoron never learns, had he studied the Quebec referendum there is a solution to his problem, hint-it was nothing to do with what the pathetic politicians did.

Hmmmm.

Why do we have to "relocate" nowadays? It sounds franco-german/us/woppish to me.
What's wrong with moving?

If I ran any of the big businesses you mention, I would be looking to move south anyway. They only ever stayed north as a sop to being "Scottish". There's no point in pretending any more; the action is in London - where it always was in the first place.

I believe you can add Standard Life and the Prudential to that list.

If I were on the Council of a pleasant English town with decent housing, schooling and scenery, I would would pack a bag and tour promising Scots businesses to tout for at least one to flit to my area.

A Head Office might not be on the cards, but a branch or back office might do very well.

My Scots accent might come in handy in the marketing process.

Oooh, Mr. Raedwald, you are a caution sir and no mistake.

I fear for my Jock friends - mates of many years standing and I like and respect them enormously although we give each other fearful stick at times......love them - as much as my Blood - Scottish relations - that, if.... Salmond becomes King of Scotland - we've always had the "British thing" and always will.
Oh, and another thing FFS why did Dave grant this plebiscite in the seven hundredth year of their one and only victory [not Sterling Bridge either]. Dave, cos he has no sense and no idea of Pictish-Anglo-Saxon history?

Or, is he just thick? Must be an accident of an Eton Mess in the Wall game?

Anyway, Geraldo [Warner] is right, we've now got either; Devo - spend what you like Max-ed out the English credit card or, renege on your debts Scotland. either way the English will be stuffed and dressed up like a Turkey.

Salmond, Miliband, Clegg and Cameron - Good grief.....
Thomas Brackett Reed, had it right:

"They never open their mouths without subtracting from the sum of human knowledge."

That the Evening Standard says THIS:

I find interesting - I agree 150% incidentally - a revolt against the Beige dictatorship / ConDemLab is underway, at last.
See also a very perceptive piece by Farage in the "Torygraph" today ...
Um

Seems like RBS,........and Lloyds have already got the message.

Oh no! Will they move all their "assets" as well? I am sure they did get the message from their majority owner, maybe Gordoom Broon hisself delivered it.

You are veering off into comedy Raedwald, we expect better.

Westminster owned banks threatening to punih the Scots if they dare defy Westminster, sure, that'll go down well...

Deutsche Bank (Torygraph today) have come up with an interesting one ...
If the Snats get their wish, but continue to use the Pound, the BoE can set Scots interest rates - different & higher than ours, to cover the risk.
Oops - 24 hrs after a "yes" vote, the BoE rate for England - 0.5%
For Scotland - 15%
oops, as they say.
20% unemployment in 2 months 50% in 6 - deep joy!
