    I'm a confident individual and a successful learner - and I say NO!
    There - now I'm also an effective contributor.
    Being a responsible citizen I urge you to also say no.
    I can tick all 4.
  9. Fearties.... I say yes, yes and thrice yes!

    We missed the boat by not taking the decision early enough. If we had become independent before 1970 we would have benefited from <u>all</u> the North Sea oil proceeds, and if we had put sufficient surpluses aside to cover the future, then we could have been like Norway.
    Instead we are a public subsidy junkie of a country and too many of our citizens are prepared to sit back and live off the state. The oil is running out. If we were independent we would rapidly become a basket case, pleading for assistance from the IMF etc.
    However, if the SNP are ever successful in persuading enough people to vote for independence, I'll then work as hard as I possibly can to make it a success, despite my reservations.
  11. I'm an effective learner, a responsible individual, a successful contributer and a confident citizen. How did I get it all so wrong?
  12. Yes. Bring it on!!!
