Hello out there. I’m writing today to discuss the pressing issue of Scottish Independence. I have provided several Storify elements in hopes to provide several view points of the issue. Andy Murray most recently won the men’s single’s at Wimbledon, creating great interest in the country. This is the first time in over 70 years that a Scot’s man has one in Wimbledon. Some of the Storify elements I have chosen have brought up several issues linking Scottish Independence with Andy’s win. I believe this win has created great exposure for the countries current political issues. As well as creating a platform for Scotland’s assets. I choose these articles because they accurately display the issues that Scotland is dealing with at the moment.
There are many issues in which this will impact such has health care, currency, labour, employment levels, law and policies, the banks etc. These issues have been displayed in several mass media outlet, all over the country.
There are several positives and negatives effect this issue will have on the country. Some of the positives effects entail, the notion of independence itself and a lack of isolation in the European union.
On the hand, some say that the Scottish economy is too weak to survive on it’s own, as the economy as of now is just barely supporting itself with help from other members of the European Union. Another draw back would be a tight border control. Today citizen are able to travel freely from Scotland and London. However if Scotland would become independent, this would no longer occur. This is due to fact that this would increase revenue for the Scottish government. Lastly, it is said that the UK just wouldn’t be the same without Scotland.
As you can see, this is an incredible important issue for Scotland and will change the lives of it’s citizen for years to come. I am very interested to see how these issues play out in the future. As well as to see the implication of independence for Scotland. Keep posted to see how these issues play out!
I hope everyone enjoys reading my last post for this Comm 2f00 class through Brock University.
