I just saw this graphic on Gerry’s Twitter feed.
The £15b black hole pays for Nuclear Weapons; “punching above our weight around the world”; wars in places that we have no business to be; ridiculous cost of doing up Westminster and the running of the Commons and Lords (which care not a whit about Scotland and spend most of their working/drinking time on English matters); royal weddings, funerals and general upkeep of princes, princesses and palaces; infrastructure projects like Cross Rail, London Sewers, HS2, etc, etc. (Feel free to add to these things that the Brits let us pay for.)
The English-based unionist press tells us repeatedly that England subsidises us. Politicians and “lords” repeat the fantasy. Some baroness said the other day that we need to remember that the South East pays our bills. It’s utter rubbish, but it’s what they want us to believe, and amazingly some still do.
I see a letter in the local newspaper this week talking about the Scotish Government “deficit”.We need to get something like this out to every household to open their eyes.Check out your local printing service and see how much they would charge to print 1000. Then distribute them.
Always remember that there is no deficit in the Scottish government. The deficit comes from the British government spending. Some of it necessary; but a great deal of it to pay for the tra la la that goes with a country that Britain would like to be, but isn’t and hasn’t been for a very long time.
Visaprint does 1000 small leaflets for around £20; 5000 for around £40. But you may get better prices locally. Of course, some printers may refuse to print indy stuff and would have the supreme court ruling on the gay cake behind them. You can’t be forced to produce material which goes against your principles. They are reliable. They printed Munguin’s mugs.
I’d like to give a plug here too for Indyposterboy
You can print his stuff from your computer.
Thanks to Gerry for bringing this to Munguin’s attention.
