Scots on what separation could mean for your savings, pension and mortgage

Peter A Bell's insight:

Arguably Bitter Together's most woeful effort to date!

 

It is revealing that they chose to talk exclusively to victims of their own propaganda onslaught through the mainstream media rather than financial experts or even knowledgeable commentators. We are left to draw our own conclusions as to why the anti-independence campaign has been so selective. And why it prefers this sort of thing to informed debate.

 

But the British nationalists aren't content simply to foist such ill-informed nonsense on us. At least by the implication of the title they stand by all of this as a reasonable assessment of what might actually happen in relation to personal finance after independence. They are going to have serious problems justifying that.
