We have heard and read the argument of the pro-English subservationists, and their pullsters of English wool over Scottish eyes, that if Scotland were to become Independent of UK, that it would be swamped by dozens of problems that are now being "taken cared of" by the English in Westminster on their behalf. Well, the answer is "Fantastic!!! Now, the Scottish people will have a chance to apply Scotland's solutions to Scotland's problems, without having their solutions derailed in any vote where an Englishman can vote against it, and prevail."
The answer of the Scottish people to these threats that "The problems of Scotland will no longer be answered by England" with "Give us indeed all our problems back to us for our own solutions, and we will guarantee you that the Scottish solutions to most of these questions will benefit Scotland much more than the English solutions."
Take the matter of Scotland's currency. The British chancellor of the Exchequer refuses to let Scotland call its currency the British Pound. Wonderful! Every British pound that Scotland now possesses, REMAINS the obligation of the UK to honor, irregardless, and will not lose any value of significance. The bulk of such might remain as British pounds, but a significant portion of this can be converted into Dollars, Euros, Yuans and Yens, providing even greater stability to the Scottish currrency than one that depends on the value of the British pound. Then, on the basis of these reserve currencies, Scotland may coin its own currency, assiging it both a monetary and a political value, such as calling it a "Wallace" and making sure that 1 Wallace equals at least 1 British pound. Having created its own monetary authority, Scotland just gave itself the right to issue credit to its own people and businesses, as well as to its own government, and if it has to pay any interest, it all stays in the coffers of Scotland, rather than deposited abroad in London. Free loans on the same or better terms, both as borrower and lender, is worth hundreds of billions of pounds that Scotland will be able to use and keep for itself, for all times. What's so dangerous or difficult about that???
