Tick Tock, only 4 days to go. This mornings polls show another swing to the YES leading by 8 points at 56% (biggest swing yet).
After last Sunday's 2point lead, the furious parent in Wastemonster kicked into action and the my goodness, I thought we were going to get grounded! "Don't you dare break up the union...or else...!!!" As if this petulant rebellious teenager would ever dream of such an affront to the family, I mean with all this independent thinking, taking care and responsibility of oneself, just what would the neighbours think?
Well, Spain across the street a couple doors down, they're not best pleased, their wee one has the same notions. Further along the street, Belgium and further again, Italy have reservations due to areas within their borders seeking to their own independence too. (I have no knowledge of any of these 3 situations and do not pretend to. I don't know, and frankly at this time do not have the time to investigate whether they were formerly their own country and were swallowed up by the bigger area or not, but Scotland WAS and REMAINS a country in its own right, but is bound by an old agreement to be a part of the United Kingdom, a tie from which it now wishes to severe). But the rest of the neighbours have no real concerns. Especially them in the street over the back, Iceland.
Back in 2008 when the financial markets collapsed, so too, did Iceland. This blog post from Shaun Gibson explains how it collapsed and how they brought themselves back up again. The Icelandic story is a truly inspiring one; one which Scotland should take note of. Could this be a reason why Wastemonter is bearing down on us from their perceived mighty height, trying to lord over our political awakening and democratic right to be an independent country?
