My response to the BetterTogether website asking for my story why were 'Better Together'

Were better together because,

I'd rather not have all the hassle of thinking about my children's future. Why would I want my nation to retain its own resources and to use them to better my country?

I'd far rather have Billions spent on replacing the largest nuclear weapons stockpile in Europe and then to have that parked right outside Glasgow... I don't mind if we glow in the dark a bit, saves on the lecky bill!!

We've been lied to and manipulated so much now, it's become a bit of a tradition. Why change?

Without us giving our young men up to all the UK's wars, either legal or otherwise, at a far higher percentage of our population than the rest of the UK, where would the good old English empire be?

I'd rather have the £40M per week of Scotland's oil and gas, being spent by the UK Govt on grand projects in London and the South East, instead of on new schools, hospitals, houses or helping to bring our children's life expectancy up to a reasonable standard.

I mean, who needs health, education and infrastructure, when we have the legacy of the London games and the aftermath of the paralympic games, namely ATOL.

We all know that the Scot's are too wee, poor and stupid to run their own country, we only invented hundreds of items at the forefront of the industrial revolution, medicine, transport, IT etc...

I would be uncomfortable with a state run broadcaster other than the BBC. It's comforting to either blatantly ignore any major Scottish issues, or to deride any Scot who goes on TV. We'd never be able to handle the truth!

While I'm here, why not take a bit of advice:

No one will notice, while the jubilee and Olympics are on, if you fancy stealing another 6000 miles of Scotland's seas with a wee tweak of the borders, or maybe we can shut down a few more bases, amalgamate 200 year old regiments, or just turn your back on the rights of Scottish fishermen and allow any old tom, dick or harry to have a wee dabble?

Your right, of course because I'm just a whinging jock, we are better together.

Saor Alba
