Independence

Owned by England

Under the treaty of union of 1707 England actually owns Scotland, that is why they were able to put nuclear missiles on the Clyde against the wishes of the Scottish people and it gives them the right to seize our oil and whisky revenues.

If we vote no in the referendum they will continue to own our county for all time.

They say if we vote for independence it will be irreversible, this is not true. There is no reason legal or otherwise why we can not change back if the Scottish people wish to.

We can vote for independence for a trial period, that is what they did with the Common Market election.
