Don't worry... I didn't have the slightest clue what I want to do career-wise a few years back. First of all, shit like that needs time so you can figure it out. And then there's the fact that it's never too late to change your mind later on.

Thought the same. The only reason I posted it was because I couldn't find that phrase on another picture and was too lazy to do it myself.

Just looking out for a Bro from the north. Plus, the Scandinavia club still consider Scotts to be one of their own, so the independence thing is kinda moot so far as the SATW comics go.

Here's a couple of things that you may want to know on that front.

Ireland left the Union. They had the worst debt in the developed world in 2008. This is because their economy was so tied into that of Britain that they simply never adapted to the subtle but crucial sacrifices that come when you leave the union. England is the one that brings in most of the money because of the massive service sector. It was one of the most important financial countries in the world before the crash (I don't know about now but it's still pretty important to the world's economy). Ireland simply didn't have what it took to keep up the pace they were after and recover when they stumbled, siphoning massive amounts of money from the EU just to stay afloat.

Scotland is in a slightly better state than that but as was mentioned it still takes more money from England than it gives back, meaning leaving the UK would be worse off for the country as a whole. Let's not forget that Scotland has been growing it's economy for decades now (since Maggie Thatcher fucked it in the ass) and yet still doesn't have enough to stand on it's own without making a lot of sacrifices.

On top of that, independence would bring it directly into conflict with the UK in terms of everything it does. Rather than getting the shared load that the UK currently has where things are spread out across the kingdom Scotland would lose a lot of contracts, and their business would be put in direct opposition to that of everywhere else in the UK, meaning things would have to become cheaper or standards would have to increase both of which mean more work for less money.

Oh, and Scotland would probably not be a Kingdom either, it would become a republic. The Royal Family bring in approximately £7,000,000,000 every year through tourism, a sum far greater than the £160 million they take in terms of rent for their land. Scotland would lose out and Britain would get richer because of not having to share

It's a losing deal.

Irishfag here, I kinda take issue with the First bit you said....WE caused our own collapse, based on property bubble.

Though youre right about much else, the country was a total shithole for a good fifty years, until we joined the EU and gladly took all of France, Germany and probably the UKs money to build nice motorways.

I'd agree that a lot of the prosperity Ireland faced famed from the borrowing from other countries in the EU but such was caused by the inability to support the economy on their own. However I expect Ireland to be able to eventually be a prosperous country. As much as when they were un the UK... un... as much as they WOULD have been if Ireland were still in the UK now that it is actually taking care of it's constituents? I don't know, we'll have to see.

Still, at least you're not Scotland where a lot of the land mass is unsuitable for farming.

I see it this way mate. You Scots are lovely people, honestly, but some times you become far too patriotic.

Look, if Scotland becomes independent, imo, it'll screw up like Spain - but a lot worse.

Too many of us think "braveheart" was an accurate adaptation of history...
