If only it was as cut and dried as that.Some of us have pensions etc tied up with the British Government and nothing official has ever been forthcoming from the pro independence movement on this.

If the settlement is agreed before the vote to see what we're going to end up with and what we have to compensate the rest of the UK with, it becomes easier to decide.

Until then it has to be no from me.

Yes, if we get the oil and gas revenue.
If you have a problem with me, text me. If you dont have my number then you don't know me well enough to have a problem with me.

Ja.
All pro-independence supporters should hold their nose and vote SNP - even if you disagree with some of their policies.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

I say yes, but also a giant "f*ck you" to that.

I wouldn't vote SNP if you paid me.

I voted for my Dad, nobody else. I just wrote on the sheet for Holyrood: "No suitable candidates."

Tbh, if you favour a republic, there really are very few candidates there.
Can't really form a Scottish republican party as the name is now connected with the American version of the Tories.
Only worse. sad.gif

At least the terrorists actually were wanting a republic - the Americans got theirs 240 years ago and still call their parties by stupid names. dry.gif
