UK safety net

Those who are opposing independence are often taunted by separatists with the remark: “So you think we are too wee to stand on our own.” My response is ­always: “No, but we are better ­together for so many reasons.”

And yet it is the SNP that is telling us that in an independent Scotland we will need a lot more immigration in order to pay for pensions etc.

So it seems to be they who ­actually think we are too wee. Ironic, isn’t it? Let’s stay together and continue to enjoy the benefits and the safety net provided by being part of the UK with its 60 million population.
