With the potential break-up of the United Kingdom recieving media coverage even in such far away places as Taiwan, I feel the time has come to ask you
, the people of Taleworlds - a proud people, a noble people, wherever ye may live - a single YES/NO question on the issue of Scottish Indepenence, for the purposes of this unofficial, advisory, and consultative, (not legally binding) referendum.
OPTION 1/ Do you believe Scotland would be better off as an independent nation state, with control of it's own fiscal and foreign policy, as well as it's own mineral and energy resources, like nearly every other country on earth, free from the interferences of a party who's policies it has not voted for since 1955? (YES).
OPTION 2/ Or do you believe it is a weak shitty place full of toothless junkies with no brains whatsoever who require stern rule from a parliament located in another country? (NO).
I will remain, of course, entirely unbiased in this debate.
As the returning officer for this referendum, I promise to show those who hate and despise Scotland and the Scottish people (NO voters) the same respect I would to those who happen to be intelligent, likeable, brave, forward-thinking, and cool (YES voters).
This is the most important decision the people of Taleworlds will have made in the last 300 years, which is why it has to be made now, in 2012, sooner rather than later.
So let's have ye then!
Art thou a Yoonyonist? Or an Independentista?
Here is the Taiwanese coverage of the debate so far, if you need to catch up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkqLn_Aj9Rw
Wavering Scottish voters should bear in mind that the British State has already threatened to take away our giant pandas, at this early stage of the negotiations... OUR
Meanwhile, last night it emerged that the two Chinese Pandas currently at Edinburgh Zoo could be taken off Scotland if they choose to become independent.
Officially Tian Tian and Yang Guang were gifts to the UK government.
“No one has fully understood the ramifications for the Pandas of any bid for Scottish independence,” said a Westminster official.
But the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “Where do they pay tax?”
