Go Lawrence Skelly! Once again he mentions that we should at least know what our situation is before deciding that independence is impossible. He echoes a blogpost comment of 4th January 2012:
Have you noticed how we are always told that any moves towards self dependency are unrealistic and simply won’t happen? Who says? Prove this is the case. Let’s see the stats. We can see the big boys around the world collapsing left, right and centre. They do not have an answer and we can’t and shouldn’t depend on them. We need to start looking out for ourselves – immediately
It seems we advise steering safe when independence is mentioned but have fewer reservations about gambliing millions in a risky business. (If it’s not gambling then our government must be able to guarantee the return).
