True level of UK government debt exceeds £5 trillion | Institute of Economic Affairs | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it
Jim Arnott's insight:

This information is truly frightening for Scotland as part of the UK. The debt figures for UK debt levels will keep increasing into the future. Scotland can only escape from this frightening scenario by divorcing itself from the UK by means of a financial and legal separation. This is called independence for Scotland.

"Just one little cross in a box & the world changes." Best ever read on Scottish independence from @wearenational. http://t.co/znLYZ4Bwu8
Jim Arnott's insight:

Excellent article Raymond. The real problem was not necessarily the Hedge Funds but the extremely complicated derivatives that were created and were not understood by the banks, regulators or governments. The toxicity of these derivatives, even to this day, are not understood.

 

My concern regarding a Yes vote in 2014 is the Scottish phyche. I have been conducting a little bit of research for a number of years. When I meet my fellow Scots I ask them: "How are you?" Over 90% reply: "Not bad". Oh! what negativity. I always respond: "It's a great day today - I woke up this morning". Next time I meet them I usually get the same response: "Not bad".

 

Nevertheless, I instinctively feel that the tide is turning in the independence campaign and I sense that the more people that hear the message of Hope then they are tending to move towards considering voting Yes..

 

My message to all Scots is: "Vote Yes in the 2014 Referendum on independence for Scotland."
