"The arms that you wield now are not such as your forefathers wielded; but they are infinitely more effective, and infinitely more irresistable" ~ Cymru Fydd leaflet, 1890

Haawkwaard credit rating.

The Better Together campaign were left a little red faced recently when the UK lost it's AAA credit rating as it had printed and distributed thousands of leaflets making the following claim.

"Scots save billions on the cost of mortgages due to the UK's AAA credit rating".

Meanwhile, those campaigning for an independent Scotland have maintained all along that the AAA credit rating of the UK could never be guaranteed to remain a AAA credit rating. And that no one could rule out Scotland also having a AAA credit rating.

So now another reason for remaining part of the 'union' is left in tatters and considering the UK cannot survive without borrowing hundreds of millions every single day then the question we here in Wales need to start asking is not "can we afford independence?" but "can we afford not to be independent".

  1. Exactly, I have wracked my brain for years trying to come up with any reasons for continuing with this corrupt greed motivated union without any success. The only rationale I can come up with is that people are too lazy to dismantle a Union that was way past its sell-by date in the 19th Century.

    The only way Wales,Scotland,Cornwall and England can move forward is to consign the Union to the historical dustbin it so richly deserves and the sooner the better. We should develop a new set of relationships between the Countries of these islands fit for the 21st century.
