GUEST,John from Kemsing BS: UK political parties for oblivion? (177* d) RE: BS: UK political parties for oblivion? 23 Mar 13

Regarding an independent Scotland, here is something worth considering providing Parliament has the determination to implement it. The National Debt of the U.K.(as of the last quarter of 2012)is £1347 billion. Since the total population of the U.K.(that is from the Orkneys and Shetland to the Channel Islands) is, say, 65 million then that figure equates to a debt of £20,700 for every man, woman and child. Since the population of Scotland is 5 million at least then the first thing Alex Salmond would inherit, come a yes vote, is a national debt of £105 billion. I don`t think free BMW`s for all would be possible for some time!
