Even Better Together

The "Better Together" campaign in the Scottish Independence Referendum raise some interesting points.

But surely, taking their argument to its logical conclusion, wouldn't we be even better together with a much more powerful nation?

If we're going to give our country away, let's raise our sights!

Even Better Together with China!


  • They’d totally be up for it.
    • They’re always interested in securing more territory.
    • They’re so desperate for oil that they've been prospecting in Vietnam purely within the scope of China's territorial sovereignty and jurisdiction!
  • We’d be a Super Power again!
  • If it's okay for Britain to take a chunk of China, surely it’s only fair for China to take a chunk of Britain in return.
  • Moar Pandas!
  • In all honesty, their political ideology is a lot closer to ours than England's is.
  • Just think how much more our pensions and investments would be worth in twenty years if they were all in the Yuan instead of the Pound!
  • Moar History!  300 years of Britain?  Pffft!
  • Their trains go at 268 mph - imagine Edinburgh to Inverness in 32 minutes instead of 3½ hours it currently takes!
  • We could re-industrialise and actually start making stuff again!
  • We'd get stars on our flag!
  • We could keep the nukes, but stick them in the middle of the Gobi Desert instead of the Glaswegian suburbs.  So when an accident eventually happens, as accidents are wont to do, it won't wipe out half of Scotland's population.
  • They could build us a massive wall to keep the English out!


    Actually, there's probably enough time left to change the wording on the ballot, just to make things clearer.  I propose something along these lines:

    Do you think Scotland should be given to:
    1. Scotland.
    2. England.
    3. China.

    You know it makes sense!
