Scots won't get independence from a Yes vote

In a week’s time, Scotland will not hold a referendum about becoming independent. Everybody is describing it as such. But what is being voted on – and only by those who actually live in Scotland – is separation from England. Understand that and much that is otherwise inexplicable falls into place. The SNP is the voice of anti-Englishness. Like Edward II, another English ruler, arrogant in certain victory, Mr Cameron has walked straight into a long-planned ambush. The year, carefully chosen by Mr Salmond, celebrates the one unequivocal Scottish victory in the long antagonism between the two nations, at Bannockburn in 1314.

Scottish Vote: ''A YES vote is forever''

Scottish Vote: ''A YES vote is forever''

So says David Cameron.  But as in so many things, he could well be wrong.  Most economic commentators expect a very negative reaction to a Yes vote, if that’s what happens on  September 18th.  This could happen quickly: indeed it is clearly happening already.  Funds are moving out of Scotland; investment and house purchases are stalling; mortgagees are worrying about the future status and currency of their debt.

Eurozone 'killed by hyperregulation and misguided policies'

Further EU integration would exacerbate Europe’s ‘democratic deficit’ and ‘centralist political structure’

Eurozone 'killed by hyperregulation and misguided policies'

Unlike most other groups in the European parliament, the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) group allows national delegations to vote as they freely choose according to their own ideology, political preference and national interest. For the EFDD is a group and not a political party. It is a strategic and pragmatic choice. It is not programmatic. Each party within the group is free to choose their own voting pattern, ideological direction etc.

EU looks to fast track Ukraine trade deal despite warnings of ‘perceived provocation’ from UKIP

The EU International Trade Committee, INTA, has voted to fast track a free trade deal with Ukraine in a quick vote, despite warnings from UKIP MEPs that such a move could be perceived as provocative by Russia. Amjad Bashir and William Dartmouth led calls for the EU to show sensitivity due to tensions with Russia, warning that a rushed deal with the beleaguered state and her neighbours could be regarded as provocative by Putin.
