Topics I've Started

Ian Wood

Yesterday, 06:24

So why has Ian Wood decided to come out in favour of the Union now when all along he was refusing to take sides. He clearly wasn't an undecided who has just made up his mind. I would have thought they would have wanted this statement from him earlier or is this about the Clare field and a fear we might not believe that their lies or is it something else?


The Consequences Of Voting No

20 August 2014 - 06:52 AM

We have set out the positive case for independence now I think it is time to hit hard with the consequences of voting No starting with this

We have been hearing repeated messages from the No camp about the EU and currency we need to counter with repeated messages of the threat to our block grant and the potential implication of these income tax raising powers.

 

We need to stress that if voters in England want this there will be increasing pressure to deliver. English voters think we are subsidised afterall.

 

We need to get this message across. This is what I am going with now because I honestly don't think many people have thought of the consequences of a no vote because they have been too busy being scared by the consequences of a yes vote 

 


Extra Powers Question To No Voters

19 August 2014 - 06:51 PM

Are you happy with the tax raising powers options being proposed?

 

Would you be happy if Labour or the SNP increased taxes to make up any cuts to the block grant? The parties in Scotland are very likely to want to maintain the level of public services and given the squeeze on public sector spending at Westminster this is a very real prospect

 

I have yet to hear anyone in the No camp talk about the potential impact of these proposed powers so I would be very interested to hear from any No's about this?


Bbc Radio Referendum Debate Question

21 July 2014 - 08:52 PM

I am filling up a application form for attendance at a BBC radio referendum debate and they are asking for questions I would want to ask. I probably won't get picked and even if I do will probably not get to ask a question but in the event I do I want to have a decent question.

 

I prefer to ask something that questions what will happen in the event of a No vote because I on't think there has been enough attention given to getting the No's to set out what this means. They have also said they want a North East slant. I am struggling a bit to decide what to put down - any suggestions?


Scotland For Richer Or Poorer

This has to be the most unbalanced, patronising piece of propaganda that the BBC has dished out during this Independence Campaign.
