A Grumpy Survey: Currency

Saw this tweet below and thought time for a wee survey

Now I know that many people felt that the currency question was not an issue overall in the last referendum in 2014 but I have never really agreed with that. People, whom I know voted no, have always said to me that currency was a concern for them during the referendum. So here is a wee survey to ask the question, again not scientific but it might be interesting all the same. I’ll leave it open for a couple of weeks and see what answer it gets, I won’t say my preferred option right now though (not that it would influence anyone lol).

    Done , and Scottish Pound would be the overwhelming answer .

    “You don’t have a plan B on currency!” was quite an effective attack, even though trying to stop Scotland using the pound would be a case of carving out their entire nasal cavity out of spite.

    Therefore the next time, I believe we must lead with a scottish pound as plan A and propose to use the british pound as a plan B if they ask us really nicely. In 2014, the UK government was still somewhat respectable and had international clout. Now? It’s an embarrassing joke. Very different circumstances indeed.

      I think currency is an important issue I really do. I know that many like Pete Bell say it wasn’t but that is just not what people have said to myself, we have to get this argument out of the way right off and pre emp the lies that will surely follow. I heard some Tory already starting this morning about the growth report and it isn’t even out yet lol.

      Thanks for taking part.

    Scottish pound, all the way. I’m firmly pro EU, but realise many are not. Using Scots currency may allay EU worries for those who’d rather we went it totally alone, I believe.

      Thanks for taking part, I’ll leave it open for a couple of weeks and tweet it out a few times to try and get as many people to reply as possible.

    The subject is well covered in
    HOW TO START A NEW COUNTRY: A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR SCOTLAND

    There is are several chapters on the subjects of money and banking and finance.

    Dr Craig Dalzell came and did a session with our YES group.
    A poll of those present showed an overwhelming preference for our own currency.

    Our own currency but I will accept either the using Euro or the Dollar as a backup currency until it ours is up and running. As the English pound will fall further due to Brexit, we want to be as far as possible from that.

    • Helena
      I think that appears to be the preference but according to the news it looks like the SNP are making the same mistake again by saying using the UK pound until they can set up a Scottish one, you know that will just be ammunition for the yoons. What they should be saying is in the transition to independence we will continue to use the UK pound until independence day then Scottish pound on day one.

    Scottish pound …first second and third.

    Bruce the ONLY problem is that some people may not trust a Scottish pound initially (the elderly) but the Scottish govt should go hard in rubbishing and refuting the we can’t use the pound meme by highlighting the history of the BOE and the FACT that we ALREADY have a Scots pound

    • Twathater

      I think the SNP will stick the British pound policy which will be a major fear factor again, I would go with either a Scottish pound or the Euro but I am no expert that is for sure. I wish I understood the economics more to be honest as it will be the battleground the next time again.

      Thanks for commenting.
