Why London Fears Scottish Independence

The pro-independent Scotland campaign has gained the momentum to win as Scots go to a referendum next week to decide on whether the country will secede from the United Kingdom... The secession of Scotland will place the center-right Conservatives into sharper competition with the more rightwing UK Independence Party (UKIP), which has risen dramatically in recent polls to upend the three main parties. The vociferously anti-European Union UKIP wants Britain to quit the EU altogether over grievances of immigration and alleged infringement of sovereignty by Brussels... Another factor that the London establishment is having deep misgivings over is the issue of North Sea oil and gas. Scottish independence would see 90 per cent of all future tax revenues being directed to Edinburgh rather than London since most of the oil and gas fields will lie within Scottish maritime territory...

St. Andrew’s Flag Flown over Scotland and Donetsk

That’s the way the history goes. The St. Andrew’s flag is flown in two places in Europe situated at great distance from each other. Scotland and Novorossia are struggling for their national identity under the same colors. The two peoples divided by different history and cultures are addressing the issue of independence. They are going different ways; a peaceful referendum is to take place in Scotland while Novorossia is going through the horrors of civil war. But they are united by the same goal and its symbol – the St. Andrew flag...

London’s Devious Plans for Scotland’s Independence Referendum

There are credible reports that the British government, which includes the Conservative and Liberal Democratic parties, as well as the Labor opposition, have colluded with the British media to downplay in articles, news broadcasts, and published opinion polls the actual strength of the pro-independence "Yes" campaign in Scotland... For example, a few months ago, the British government instructed the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in a confidential document to undermine at every opportunity the Yes vote... There is a strong belief that other British networks and newspapers, including Rupert Murdoch's Sky News and the Times of London, received the same instruction and obediently carried it out...

«Welcome for Scottish Will Stand Being True to the Scottish Flag…»

The Scottish independence referendum is slated for September 18. The issue was initiated in 2007 by Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party. Back then his party received majority in the Scottish parliament to make him First Minister of Scotland. In May 2011 he announced the intention to hold a referendum on independence. He used ideology, history and legal grounds to perfectly substantiate the idea. London could not prevent the plebiscite. The only thing British Prime Minister David Cameron could do was to call for «Nay» vote...

The Resurgence of European Separatism

A 1.5-million-person demonstration in Barcelona in support of Catalonian independence and the fact that the Catalonian parliament is controlled by two separatist parties are the most noticeable signs of the new blossoming of separatism in Europe. Earlier, in October 2012, British Prime Minister Cameron and First Minister of Scotland Salmond signed an agreement on the holding of a referendum in 2014 on the independence of this part of the United Kingdom. At the same time, the Flemish separatists from the New Flemish Alliance won the local elections in Belgium. Nationalists have also come to power in the Basque Country in Spain. The examples cited are only the tip of the enormous separatist iceberg of Europe...

The Anti-Secession Axis Threatens Scotland and other Aspirant Nations

British Prime Minister David Cameron has enlisted the support of a Scottish former NATO Secretary General and an English transvestite actor-comedian in the «Better Together» campaign to keep Scotland within the United Kingdom. English politicians and their Scottish «quislings» are growing concerned about the lackluster performance of the «No» campaign in the lead up to the September 18, 2014 referendum in Scotland that will simply pose the question to voters: «Should Scotland be an independent country?»...

An Independent Scotland: A Poke in the «Five Eyes»

September 18, 2014 could either ensure that the United Kingdom remains a virtual U.S. intelligence «Trojan horse» inside the European Union or could herald a radical shakeup of America’s «Five Eyes» signals intelligence alliance. On a Thursday in September, Scottish citizens will go to the polls to vote «Yes» or «No» on a simple referendum question: «Should Scotland be an Independent Country?» The referendum was worked out in an agreement between Scotland’s Scottish Nationalist Party First Minister Alexander Salmond and British Prime Minister David Cameron...

Scottish Secession from the UK – Divorce with Bedroom Privileges?

...I see several apparent consequences from Scotland breaking away starting with what will remain afterwards. The economic intertwining of the UK makes it impossible for this non-economist to assess but we do know that Scotland is overrepresented in the UK parliament and receives more money per person than other Britons. Who owns the North Sea oil? If Scotland leaves, can it sustain itself or does she see continued British aid, a sort of divorce with bedroom privileges? What about the European Union? Does Scotland automatically become a member?..

Devolution for Scotland and the British Crown

This October, London handed the Scottish Parliament the authority to hold a referendum on independence... The centuries-old colonial experience shows that the British Crown, when she could not stop the process, sought to lead it, and direct this energy to their advantage. In principle, this scenario is possible today. Inside the United Kingdom a sovereign Scotland could be used to solve economic problems. Beyond this – the Anglo-Saxon path of fragmentation can be seen in the European Union, the Balkans, Eurasia, and even Canada, where this autumn the Quebec party won the election, and advocated the creation of a sovereign state separate from Canada, which is a member of the British Commonwealth...

NATO Eyes Transnistria

President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry attempted to craft a so-called "coalition of the willing" to help the United States fight the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in both Iraq and Syria. Obama was only able to enlist the support of the fragile new Iraqi government, the battered Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. The latter "partner," Saudi Arabia, has been ISIL's main benefactor. Obama also foolishly said he wanted to arm the "Free Syrian Army," even though many of its original members joined ranks with ISIL and its ally, the Al Nusra Front after being trained and armed by CIA and U.S. military teams in Jordan and Turkey...
