On the idea of Scotland leaving the UK ( a good one as it happens):
To vote no is to choose to live under a political system that sustains one of the rich world’s highest levels of inequality and deprivation.
Well, no, we don’t have one of the world’s highest levels of deprivation. That’s just bollocks.
But with respect to inequality. If Scotland leaves the UK then inequality in both Scotland and rUK will fall.
Not that actual inequality will change one iota you understand, but currently we measure Scottish inequality as against the UK. As we measure UK inequality including Scotland. And if a poorer area (which Scotland is) leaves such a system of measurement then inequality will fall in both parts of it.
Which leads us to an interesting thought. We’re told that inequality is the greatest problem of our times. So, why aren’t all those who so bleat supporting Scottish independence (like George is)?
