Many of those 'muppets' are Scottish! Holyrood will just be all 'Scottish muppets' IMHO At least we might reduce the number at Westminster! Send them back north of the border
However there are alternatives that have not been thrown into the debate so far as I can see.
Check out some of the Carrinean territories (Sovereign) that tie their own currency to the U.S. dollar - and nearly all business transactions are carried out in US Dollar terms - and your average local business would always rather get US Dollar notes rather than their own notes - even with waitresses offering to swap their own (large for them) local cash for your own US dollar cash notes before you pay in cash in either currency.
Even Barbados works like that. Still not sure Scotland has the weather, the beaches, the people, the food or indeed the yachts to attact the US Dollar cash for such transactions! Or even English Sterling
Not that I have anthything against the Scots at all - quite the opposite.
I might change my mind if too many of them vote for that clever dangerous idiot.
Maybe we should lock him and our own home secretary into a room together... possibly adjoining a room with Vicky Price & Chris Hulne and not let any of them out - until they have all come to an agreement (ever?)
What a load of political tosh IMHO.
