Food for Thought for Friday -- Scotland the Brave

Mr Cameron, Mr Clegg, and yes-- Mr Milliband,

The real issue is that you are disenfranchising the majority of ordinary people in the UK.

You threaten to disnmantle a health care system we have all paid into all our lives and hand over the reigns to private companies who will literally KILL people who cannot pay. Most of us cannot pay.

You are allowing people into this country who have criminal records in their own country. America would not do this. Neither should we EU or no EU!

If I go abroad I have to wait in line with other EU citizens to have my passport checked. I want a UK passport. I was BORN HERE! Surely that should carry some weight?

If Scotland now gets a better deal than regions of England, Wales and N Ireland, that will create more inequality and resentment. We need the rich to pay more taxes not take advantage of the poor and we need a government that listens to our legitimate concerns over a whole range of issues.

Scotland went to the polls 89% of them! Scotland decided to stay in the UK and I for one, am very glad they did. Of course a lot of Scottish people are disappointed today but at least it's democratic disappointment. And they were right about one thing -- Westminster must change its attitude. Most people have modest wishes but make no mistake -- we are no longer consider ourselves born to support the vast wealth of the few nor to serve your petty ambitions.

Take a lesson Britain -- next MAY when we have a chance to vote, turn out and VOTE.

Scotland the brave!
