If Scotland Votes For Independence, Where Do Orkney And Shetland Go?

Only now, with the referendum on Scottish Independence now being seen on the horizon, do people start to think about the real problems of the vote and what happens afterwards.

This article in the Guardian lays out the problems of the northern islands. This quote is given.

All the Shetland ever got from Scotland was dear meal and greedy ministers.

It may be true and I have heard something similar all over Suffolk, as people always feel that other areas of the UK get better treatment. In Suffolk’s case that usually means Norfolk.

Somehow, we must find a better way to spend taxes all over the UK.

    • It’s funny how immigrants constantly look to where they came from. I don’t as my Jewish and Huguenot ancestors were forced out by persecution.

      So you’re not from a convict line then Bob.
