Scots to adopt new currency ‘within months’ of independence, says Ash Regan
The leadership candidate says an independent Scotland would dump the pound but her ‘absurd’ policy has been described as ‘for the birds’
It is perhaps the only one of the Tater’s ideas that has merit. Yes, Scotland would want its own currency.
Of course there’s a slight problem with this, which is that if Scotland then follows any other of the Tater’s advice then the ScotPound will rapidly become the Bawbie:
A bawbee was a Scottish sixpence. The word means a debased copper coin, valued at six pence
Sixpence Scots, which ended up at about halfpence English.
