It was thanks to the SNP that we ended up with Thatcher.
How is voting yes going to change anything? Whatever government elected will still have to deal with the austerity that the system demands, there is no way around it at the moment.
Total public spending increased under Thatcher.
Sorry but I've learned from academia that you never trust any reference to blogs or the dreaded wikipedia. Anything cited would be wonderful Ayami. Yes austerity is a worldwide issue but I would prefer to take my chances with a government that I voted in and if they start to prop up a corrupt banking system rather than make decisions beneficial to my country at least I know my country and its people has the power to vote them out again.
Alex Salmond actually was an economist, not a towel folder or speech writer like Yobsborne. Give the man credit love him, hate him or be indifferent to him he has held down a job and would seem to have a high degree of economy savvy from banking to oil.
Apologies for using the party URL it was the easiest to find and had the least comical picture and out of date picture.
