Many more are seeing the lies and fear being spread!! At the right time

More people are having a REAL go at the No campaign, the BBC and other political liars, THANKFULLY we Scot’s are too smart to take in the lies. So we share the lies on Social media. Back in 1979 when we were lied to in the same circumstances of where we are now, we believed Westminster. Now with Social Media lies and anger and mistruth’s are shared almost right away. Yes Scotland see the lies, we have had enough, so has Peter!


Trainspotting actor actor Peter Mullan has hit out at “scaremongering” by anti-Scottish independence campaigners, branding it “deeply insulting and very patronising”. Mullan, who played Swanney in Danny Boyle’s 1996 film Trainspotting, made the comments as he campaigned for a Yes vote in Glasgow with Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. His comments came in the wake of reports that shoppers could have to pay higher prices if Scotland votes for independence next week, and that banks and financial institutions such as Royal Bank of Scotland could move to London.

Alex Salmond has accused the UK treasury of trying to smear the Yes campaign by confirming RBS’s plans to journalists. Actor Mullan, who also starred in Children of Men, is Scottish and described himself as a ‘lifelong supporter’ of independence. He said: “The scaremongering of the last few days was hardly surprising, it wasn’t unexpected. “We all knew that they were going to throw the kitchen sink at us and now they’re basically ripping apart the entire kitchen, it’s plates, cups, saucers, knives, forks, they’re throwing at us. “It makes me angry because it is bullying of the highest order and it is intolerable.

“In fact it is getting wearisome, every day you wake up and it’s like ‘what will they come up with today, what will they dream up about this catastrophe that will befall us all?’ “It’s deeply insulting and very patronising, this notion that all of us, for the last 2,000 years, hadn’t realised how useless a country we were, how we were incapable of doing anything and how, if as part of a democratic process we choose to determine our own fate, our own destiny, then we are looking towards complete economic meltdown. I find that really insulting. The actor and director said he had never understood why Scotland “didn’t run our own affairs”.  He added: “It was just like an instinct. It’s like breathing. This is something we should never be having to ask ourselves, whether we control our own country.” He also said a Yes vote would be “huge” for Scotland’s arts and cultural sector, claiming: “It will be massive, it will unleash a huge level of creativity we couldn’t even have dreamt of 10, 20, 30, 40 years ago. The confidence it will give to the creatives in our country is incalculable.” While polls increasingly suggest the contest between pro and anti independence campaigners is too close to call, Mullan insisted: “I think it’s going to be a Yes. “When people go into that little booth and they see that very simple question, I really believe a lot of folk who are undecided, when they really think about it, when they go with their heart and their head, I think they will vote Yes.”

Pound Falls Over Scotland Referendum Fears – Says Sky News

As polling shows voters may choose independence, markets see a sell-off on the pound and companies with major Scottish interests

Sterling has fallen to a 10-month low against the dollar amid a sell-off of Scotland-linked companies, after a weekend poll showed a potential surge for independence. The markets reacted with widespread negative sentiment over rising uncertainty about the United Kingdom’s economic stability. The pound was trading down more than 1% against the US dollar in midday trades. At 3pm it was still 0.99% down. A broad range of companies with major interests in Scotland also saw their share prices fall on Monday. Weir Group saw its shares drop more than 2.45%, SSE fell 2.44% and defence contractors Babcock and BAE Systems slid 4.87% and 2.37%, respectively. The Royal Bank of Scotland dropped 2.88%, Lloyds Banking Group was down 3.36% and Standard Life fell 4.2%.

The drops eased slightly in afternoon trades.

Many leading pension funds have significant exposure to the banks and big companies affected by the sell-off. research director Kathleen Brooks told Sky News: “An independent Scotland would potentially have to start a currency from scratch, which is a hard thing to do. “Obviously a new currency was formed with the euro, but that was decades in the making – and Scotland doesn’t have the time so it would be a real uphill struggle.” The sell-off follows a YouGov poll in the Sunday Times which indicated that 51% of Scots supported independence while 49% backed the current Union. It was the first time polls suggested there could be a ‘Yes’ vote for independence in the referendum on September 18.

On Sunday, Chancellor George Osborne sought to head off the surge of support for an independent Scotland by promising more powers north of the border, including control over taxation, job creation and welfare spending. “The markets took for granted for so long that it was going to be a ‘No’ vote and as the polls narrow there has been a huge change in sentiment,” Ms Brooks added. “If there is a ‘Yes’ vote in 10 days’ time things are going to get very ugly in the markets, not just for the pound, but for stocks and potentially raise our borrowing costs in the UK without Scotland.” And on Monday, party leaders began a final push to sway undecided voters as Alistair Darling, leader of the Better Together campaign, warned a Yes vote “would be forever”.

The Scottish Government, based on expert advice it has received, has said that Scotland should continue to use the pound as part of a currency union with the rest of the UK. As a fully tradeable curre
