I fully expect a YES. Media are doing their best to sway, but im hopeful that most will see through that.

    I honestly think the risk to your economy is huge and mainly owing to the currency issue. Their plan B for an informal currency adoption is absolutely nuts and would mean their independence would be on paper only. I can't believe anyone would vote for not having control over your monetary policy just 3 years after the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis.

  • Re: Greg by e.i.b (Member 10021856) on 13-Sep-2014
    Say we agree to let you use the pound. You still don't have control over interest rates. If you adopt unilaterally EU have said it would mean you can't join. And your own currency means a 10% devaluation to your savings. Each option is shit compared to stay as you are.

  • Re: Greg by e.i.b (Member 10021856) on 13-Sep-2014
    Why do people assume we will grant a formal currency arrangement? I honestly don't think we will. The post vote mood will be ugly and I don't think the rUK government or public will be in the mood for giving concessions.

    Mark Carney has said no. The Treasury has said no. Everyone has said no. It would mean the BoE acting as lender of last resort for a foreign country's banks and also guarante... more >>

Question for the right honourable eib by Krampus (Member 10290522) on 12-Sep-2014
If Scotland DOES ONE, will the interest rates of the remaining parts of the UK rise?   
  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by weeminger (Member 10049591) on 12-Sep-2014
    Latest ISM Poll 51% No - 49% Yes.

    ICM - too close to call.

  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by Barry Johnson (Member 10260826) on 12-Sep-2014
    So much will depend on how they do their polling, which areas, age groups etc. Fucking hell. The next 6 days are going to be a nightmare

  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by weeminger (Member 10049591) on 12-Sep-2014
    Well they've changed their methodology for this one for some reason. Switched to land-line polling for some reason.

  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by Becks (Member 10099659) on 12-Sep-2014
    I don't think interest rates will have to change tbh.
    Exchange rates will move but we don't use monetary policy to try and influence rates anymore.
    Can't think of an obvious scenario where rates would need to change.

  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by e.i.b (Member 10021856) on 12-Sep-2014
    Krampus no they wont. the Boe are likely to postpone one of their hikes or push the furst hike out in result of a Yes
    However bond yields will rise as gilts get sold on instability risk

  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by e.i.b (Member 10021856) on 12-Sep-2014
    Central banks inclu the BoE do cut ric due to macro economic shocks-thats normal. they dont hike due to shocks however. pre this weeks poll gyrations the mkt priced in the first BoE hike nov this year with one more next year. when the polls wobbled that was pushed out to next year. The BoE wld stay on hold a bit longer in event of a yes to try and stabalise markets

  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by Krampus (Member 10290522) on 12-Sep-2014
    Thanks eib

  • Re: Question for the right honourable eib by Becks (Member 10099659) on 12-Sep-2014
    Yeah that's a good point, the rise would be pushed out due to 'uncertainty' etc.

my opinion by Charlotte Sharman (Member 10283928) on 12-Sep-2014
the reason the snp keep making the point that it's not about ethnicity is because it is. ask a european, they all think the thing is absurd. my parents german neighbour said to me that nationalism is a bad thing. I know it's a bad thing. you can wrap it up in all sorts of self determination but history shows us that nationalism has the root of hate and division and that's what I feel in my gut.

    Here's the thing though. I knew that even if 100% of people in Scotland had voted Labour in the last GE we'd still have the Con-Dem. However a (very) rough look at the constituency map suggests that if every seat above a Mersey-Humber line voted Labour it still wouldn't have swung it. If the parties win the lower half of the country, they win. That can't be right. Even if No win, I think we'll st... more >>

  • Re: my opinion by da bomb! (Member 10021549) on 12-Sep-2014
    The insulting thing is that more people chose to not vote than vote the Tories into power yet Scotland is somehow worse off than everywhere else, even somewhere like Liverpool, which has had its budget cut by about 58% in real terms since 2010.

    Well, I would never, ever consider voting for something that was an ethnic nationalism movement. Labour have tried to insinuate this is, quite a few times.

    I'm not talking about the youths. These are 200k, mostly in the poorer areas that have registered. Actually the polls I've seen split into age groups have for the last few weeks shown only the 0ver 60s with No maj, but it's so big it outweighs the slight Yes wins in the others.

    As to the result. I suspect a narrow No. However if Yes is above 40% I see it happening in my lifetime. If it's above 45% certain factors like a referendum pulling us out of EU might bring it around again very quickly.

  • Re: HOOTS MON! by weeminger (Member 10049591) on 12-Sep-2014
    I know you tend to gather like minded people around you but my experience is about 80% Yes. In my reasonably affluent village talking to other parents I'd say it's still about 60%. People up and down the country are saying the polls don't reflect their experience.

  • Re: if a country seeks independance by Barry Johnson (Member 10260826) on 11-Sep-2014
    I think you just need an absolute majority in a referendum. Except for the 1979 vote, when the Labour govt moved the goalposts to say that 40 per cent of the electorate had to vote Yes, meaning 51% voted in favour of devolution but the result didn't stand.

    Awful! He stood on a re-bar when he was at work, went right through his boot and into his foot. Went to hosp they gave him penicillin which he had allergic reaction to and ended up with cellulitis and had to go back to get new anti biotics to clear the infection. Bet you wish you hadn't asked!

  • Re: Has anyone seen by grandecazzoducan (Member 10099169) on 10-Sep-2014
    I don't know where to start. What is a re-bar? I watched something funny the other day. Some kind of free speech thing in Sweden. Controversial speaker etc etc. They put on a video featuring images of prophet muhammhed and then overlaid it with gay porn and electric six 'gay bar' song. All the muslims in the audience go 'apeshit'

    Though I can sympathise it does make you wonder why they bought a ticket for something they knew they wouldn't like

    what kind of idiot would buy tickets to something they wouldn't like?

    Rebar is the metal that makes steel reinforced concrete. you see it on building sites, brown criss crossed pieces of metal that then have concrete poured over/on/around.

Baz - ? currency issue - whats yr view? by e.i.b (Member 10021856) on 10-Sep-2014
I'm not sure about whether a currency union would actually be established in the way some people think. The political rethoric is clearly very much against it and that's understandable given the events in the eurozone over the last years have entrenched the sense in the UK that combining fiscal sovereignty and monetary policy dependence is a bad thing. The question to my mind is more whether r-UK ... more >>

    For context, the scottish banking sector is 12x GDP, whereas it was 8x GDP in Iceland. Wonder what our price is for acting as lender of last resort...
    there is no way Scotland is viable with a banking sector that large wo its own formal ccy arrangement or central bank - no way

    I found myself agreeing with John Redwood on Newsnight about that last night ...it felt dirty. I think most people realise it would be insanity for the rUK to refuse a formal currency union. I'm not saying they would do it but it would be pretty self-destructive if they did. It's not really proper independence though is it. I reckon Salmond should have offered a new currency after a transition per... more >>

    I had to wade through the Cameron, Clegg and Miliband statement last night. It just consists of them saying 'we're better together' over and over again. They've been caught on the hop. And Cameron's approval ratings on trust here are -48, Miliband is -40 something and Clegg is about the same.

    Greg, re 'choice', devils advocate but, why would it matter if there was a run on a Scottish institutions?
    They are no longer part of UK, so its Scotlands problem isn't it.

    Besides wouldn't all the bank re-domicile to r-UK anyway so a run would be less likely?
