Tactical vote

Dr Charles Wardrop (Letters, 25 September) asks for answers to a hypothetical question in the event of an independent ­Scotland. He asks: “What about the £100 billion share of the UK’s debts, how can we ever pay this off?”

Well, the one thing that is ­certain is that if Scotland votes No, then, as part of the UK, Scots will still be forced to pay off this enormous sum through ­increased taxes or cuts imposed by Westminster.

The £1 trillion debt which the incompetent UK government has accumulated won’t go away in the event of a No vote. In fact, it is much more likely to continue to become even bigger year by year.

Better by far to vote Yes, cut our losses and cut our ties to this failed system.
