Well hasn’t that been fun? The referendum on Scottish Independence which promised to be a score draw instead turned into a narrow away win for the ‘No’ faction. So no three points on the pools coupon. No big payout. Upon sober reflection perhaps a bullet has been dodged, but I rather feel significant opportunities have been missed.
Just think of the jobs that could have been created by the ‘Yes’ voters as they;
- Rebuilt Hadrians Wall to keep those English bastards out.
- Found real, meaningful jobs for the proposed glut of repatriated Ginger people (Like Chris Evans).
- Gone back to the growth industries of cross border cattle and sheep raiding
- Created a massive urban renewal programme when they found out there wasn’t enough oil left to keep them in the style to which they wished to become accustomed.
- Created a new ‘Auld Alliance’ with that other failing European socialist republic (France)
What the narrow ‘No” vote means is;
Alas, poor Alex Salmond will not be the first Minister of a newly independent Scotland (Shame).
David Camoron keeps his job (Heavy sigh).
The Queen will not have to put Balmoral on the market (Huzzah for Liz).
No inadvertent ‘Brexit’ caused by invalidated EU treaties (Bugger).
No doubt there will be many petty recriminations from disappointed ‘Yes’ voters against those who did not vote or who voted ‘No’ and perhaps many useful construction jobs will created by the resulting riots for Polish tradesmen who actually learned to solder a joint, lay a brick, cut a straight piece of wood, fix a pipe and actually turn up on time for a job.
However, let’s look on the bright side; at least Scottish MP’s may not have to drag their arses down to Wastemonster in future to bother voting on issues that only concern the Sassenachs. Which means, oh. Not so good. Scottish MP’s will have to take a cut in expenses (Shame, boo hiss). Oh dearie me. Tsk.
