Scottish independence plans dismissed as a 'work of fiction' as Alex Salmond insists he wants to keep the pound, the Queen and CBeebies

Alex Salmond's blueprint for an independent Scotland was dismissed as a 'work of fiction' today as he scrambled to sought to reassure voters that it would not mean losing the pound, the Queen, or even their favourite TV shows.
The Scottish First Minister was dogged by questions about how he will get the Westminster government, Brussels, Nato, Buckingham Palace and the BBC to agree to his ambitious plans.
He launched his historic 670-page blueprint covering all areas of life in an independent Scotland, which revealed he wants the UK to continue to bail-out Scotland's banks, shoulder its debts and fund degrees for its students.
And it spelt out in bizarre detail that shows like Eastenders, Doctor Who and Strictly Come Dancing and kids' channel Cbeebies would remain on air, in an attempt to counter fears from TV viewers that they would be cut off from the BBC.



Voters in Scotland will go to the polls in the historic referendum on 18 September 2014.
The Scottish Government’s long-awaited document claimed there are ‘three overriding reasons’ for Scotland to leave the UK and become a separate state.
It claimed independence will create a more democratic Scotland, as well as a country that is both more prosperous and fairer.

But opinion polls suggest the public is against ending the 300-year-old union, with the no campaign enjoying a lead of around 9 per cent.
The document claims that a Yes vote will mean ‘the most important decisions about our economy and society will be taken by the people who care most about Scotland, that is by the people of Scotland’.

I hope they go for it in a way. The yes vote.

Then they'll be free of English 'rule' for ever won't they....all their problems won't be our fault any more. They can go and moan at Brussels door instead for a change.

Good luck with that Scottish people.

Perhaps the Welsh would like to join them?

Any chance of seeking Mancunian independence DG? I am told I would be a lot better off if I did not have to subsidise you guys.
