It would be wrong…



The question we have to answer is: what should we do? The wrong response, often reflected in the rhetoric of Gordon Brown, is to try to cow or bully Scotland into remaining part of the UK through fear of the economic consequences of going it alone.

This will not work. First, supporters of independence will always be able to cite examples of small, independent and thriving economies across Europe such as Finland, Switzerland and Norway. It would be wrong to suggest that Scotland could not be another such successful, independent country.

Second, this aggressive, negative tactic is one reason why people north of the border feel so disaffected with British politics. Instead, we need to continue to make the positive case for a united Britain by ensuring that the Union remains relevant to all English and Scottish people.

David Cameron, The Telegraph, april 2007

    ich mag cameron nicht und ich mag die neoliberalen nicht, aber eines muss man ihnen lassen. sie haben sportsgeist und sind in ihren überzeugungen offensichtlich konsequent. anstatt die unabhängigkeitsbestrebungen in schottland mit rechtlichen und politischen schikanen zu unterdrücken, stellen sie sich ganz sportlich dem wettstreit der ideen. ganz im neoliberalen sinne eines freien marktes. auf dass der bessere gewinnen möge. gefällt mir.

    Britischer Sportsgeist im besten Sinne. Nicht umsonst waren die Entwicklungen in GB für die Demokratie im modernen Sinne so wichtig.
    Eine Diskussion zu blockieren bedeutet sich dem Wettkampf um die besten Ideen zu verweigern.
