    couldn't agree more. They gave labour a right good tanking up here it's just a pity their superior share of the vote didn't reflect in the amount of seats.
    But after a fairly succesful time in charge and this historic victory then I've never been more hopeful of independence. A great showing in the next general election would surely mean that whoever is in power at westminster would be forced to offer a referendum.

    got very close in fife only 0.2% of a difference in votes behind Labour Roll on General election :-D

    Are the SNP just a Scottish version of the BNP?

    no... lol

    en.wikipedia.org/wik…rty

    "Policy platform
    The SNP's policy base is, by and large, in the mainstream European social democratic mould. For example, among its policies are a commitment to unilateral nuclear disarmament, progressive personal taxation and the eradication of poverty, free state education including support grants for higher education students and a pay increase for nurses. It is also committed to an independent Scotland being a full member state of the European Union, to the country joining the single European currency at the appropriate exchange rate and is against membership of NATO.

    Contrary to the expectations of many outside the party, the SNP is not expressly republican and its general view is that this is an issue secondary to that of Scottish independence. Many SNP members are republicans though, and both the party student and youth wings are expressly so.

    The SNP is committed to maintaining an independent Scotland within the Commonwealth of Nations."

    Thank you Wikipaedia Gods

    Having worked in North East Scotland for several years I'll take issue with the racist comment! I felt as welcome as an immigrant at a BNP rally.:oops:

    No, the the snp are far from being anti english.

    I'm not Scottish so this isn't my argument, but I don't see a problem with a country wishing to be independent of the controlling powers within London.

    unless it was alex salmond or nicola sturgeon that made you feel unwelcome then I fail to see what that has to do with the snp.

    I'm just bored and thinking aloud! Ignore me.

    i think we deserve independance if we want it but im not sure if it would be the best thing for the country, would need to read i nto it more either way it wont be for another few years and i plan to be out of this country by then

    I think if Scottish people wish to have independence, they really should learn how to spell it first....

    My husband is American, our kids have dual citizenship. Not sure I'd agree there are better opportunities in The US. For instance, poverty there is on a way worse level than here. I've made sure our kids have been brought up as Brits.

    Yes the whole scholarship thing is cool but they have to maintain a grade average to stay on in sporting areas.

    Also, education there is SO expensive generally.

    My hubby's little brother is studying criminology at college level, it's wayyy more expensive than here.
