And Then It’s Time To Decide….

Are we all suitably whipped up into a frenzy regarding that Scotland voting thingy? Right, it’s just the media then.

How many hundreds and thousands of words have been spoken these past few weeks just on this one topic? If only some of those words had been arranged in some sort of order so that people, other than code-breakers at Bletchley Park, could have understood what was said. All I picked up on was repeated and vague pronouncements on the pound, pensions and that unassailable bastion of how stuff shouldn’t be run, the NHS.

As far as I, myself and me can make out, although I don’t remember being asked, it seems our ‘leaders’ have promised them up there the moon if they say ‘no’ and if they say ‘yes’ the ‘leaders’ up there will leave us to handle their already incurred debts. It would appear to be a lose – lose** game changer for us down here that’s going to cost shed loads either way up.

How are our glorious ‘leaders’ going to pay for all that stuff they’ve promised? Pardon? By raising our whatses? Oh, right. That’ll work I guess.

My vote, if they’d let me have one, would go to the guy who put this together.

However, whatever the outcome come Friday, part of me, the sensible bit, small as it may be, says I should refrain from watching or listening or reading any news for a goodly period thereafter as it’s going to be just as frenetic and unbearable as the run-up’s been. I’ll settle for a Fanfare For The Common Man.  {Bet that took ya’ back eh?}

**I’ll let you into a little secret; ‘lose – lose’ started out as loose – loose. Again. How sad is that? Any points for honesty?

“I have no time for those who say there is no way Scotland could go it alone. I know first-hand the contribution Scotland and Scots make to Britain's success - so for me there's no question about whether Scotland could be an independent nation.”
