Scotland Vote

bownomore_590_409

The upcoming vote for Scottish independence has me kind of flummoxed.  I have a lot of sympathy for and agreement with the “Vote Yes” Scots, not because of their complicated history with England, or even because of the North Sea oil revenues that the Scots believe will be theirs (and it will be, at least until the oil runs out there, and it’s not an infinite  source- far from it).

What I have sympathy for is the Scottish antipathy towards the English government’s Torie leanings, which include trying to eviscerate National Health Care and other social welfare programs, but also because of the ever-increasing police-state mentality in Great Britain.  Which, BTW, is as bad if not worse than ours.  They make no bones about having cameras every single place they can, and using those cameras for facial recognition, etc.

The Scots have way more socialist leanings than the English do.  And for that reason, I say “good for them.”

The complicating factor is that Scotland going its own way might wind up weakening Great Britain, and the EU.  The EU is far from perfect, but it is better than each country totally going its own way, to the detriment of the greater good.  I would not have a problem with weakening Great Britain itself, but I would have a problem weakening the EU.  It does need reforms (especially financial reforms), but it should not be weakened.

At the end of the day, though, if I were a Scot with the vote, I might well vote for independence.

Or would the politically correct term be “congress-varmits”?
