Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The price may be, at some point in the future, that Scotland has to join the Euro.

That's not much of a choice - continue to lose sovereignty with the Pound, or give up future sovereignty to the Euro.

If I were Salmond I'd be considering other options.

Of course the real fools are the English. The Scottish Question not only demonstrates that Scotland is ruled by England, but that England is ruled by the City and its Etonomic Machinery of Sleaze, which is suddenly saying 'Nice currency you have there - be a shame if anything happened to it' now that a Yes vote is no longer impossible.

Mr Punch David Cameron has the City's hand up his arse, as does England as a whole - including UKIP.  The blather about the evil EU is a useful diversion from this rather fundamental (sic) fact.

The campaign seems to have given the Scots a reason to be smarter about this than the English. Rather too many of the English population actually believe that the EU is the problem, closely followed by ISIS, and that leaving the EU and being horrible to foreigners will herald a bright new dawn for the English Empire etc, etc.

Still - now that Mark Carney has gone in front of the TUC and promised jam tomorrow ('Your brave economic sacrifice has been noted, comrades!') we can assume that England's future is bright whichever way the vote goes.
