Irrefutable Evidence – Scotland’s Direct European Wealth Comparisons.

Many of you will recall that i wrote a blog post in October 2018 titled “Irrefutable Proof – Its not Scotland that’s too poor to be independent, Its England“. That blog post illustrated, and all sourced from official websites, that on a income and resource level, Scotland out performed England on a population basis in all of the 11 areas i measured.

Thinking on this, and with Brexit occurring and Scotland’s push for independence i wanted to compare how Scotland (and England) fared against 3 other countries of very similar populations in the EU area and how it fared against the EUs biggest economy. I used the same 11 areas as the initial blog post above and broke it down on a population basis.

Below are the results – they may surprise you.

The average positions based on the above are as follows:

Average RankCountry

5Germany
6England

As you can see from the above, Scotland with a tiny amount more people than Norway, and significantly less people than England and Germany manages to average across all 11 areas in second place, taking first place in 3 of the areas.

One thing that stands out to me is that even though Scotland sits second on average, and its a very close second by the way, they are the only ones without independence and full fiscal control, and that is very telling when you look at the fiscal comparisons between the countries in the last 3 measures areas.

In those last three, Scotland sits 4th in two of them (where there is central UK fiscal control), where as it sits top when Scotland promotes itself.

This should be enough for people to see that if we were independent and could re-join the EU and control all of our own MASSIVE resources and share them with other European countries whilst retaining full fiscal autonomy, there is no doubt in my mind that if i re-ran this blog post after we gain independence and let a few years pass by that we would be ahead of Norway and England (although they are already last in this comparison exercise) will continue to fall down the rankings.

The greatest cheat every played on Scots is that they believe they aren’t capable of being independent – yet even in this utterly difunctional union, with 76% power retained in London and our hands tied behind out backs – we still out perform Ireland, Denmark, Germany and England across all 11 areas.

Why is it that with less resources and less per population share of said resources they can afford independence but we cant? I wonder if its because we are far wealthier as a nation than you are told.

Please spread the truth far and wide people – believe in yourselves, and our future generations to make this country better for all of us.

One thought on “Irrefutable Evidence – Scotland’s Direct European Wealth Comparisons.

  1. […] However upon inevitable militarisation, Eton’s finest are relying on the English working masses (outside of political Twitter and Facebook) to display a certain psyche through characteristic behaviours, such as general political apathy and acquiescence to and compliance with authority – particularly when it comes to putting Scotland back in its box – which just ‘coincidentally‘ happens to be full to the brim, with an embarrassing-array of natural resource riches.
