This, from the inimitable Stephen Noon, was just begging to be shared.
Sometimes with you, it’s difficult to know whether to laugh or cry. On the eve of your visit to Scotland, though, we have to admit to having a bit of a giggle at your expense.
You say that with independence we might be stopped from using Scottish bank notes. We understand that’s meant to scare us but we just can’t help but snigger.
Have you shared the joke with the Bank of England? After all they’re the ones who would lose the £3 billion of deposits that cover the issue of Scottish bank notes – and that’s enough to bring a tear to even a banker’s eye.
And haven’t you been arguing that independence would mean we lose the UK’s AAA rating? What happened with that, by the way?
You’re very welcome here in Scotland as part of the No campaign but instead of making up silly stuff about independence, how about explaining yourself to the millions of Scots who are losing out now because of your government’s policies?
You might want to hide behind bank notes, but we want to talk about the bedroom tax and your damaging welfare changes, about your years of austerity cuts and the real possibility that you are dragging the UK towards a triple-dip recession.
But of course, there is one thing we’d definitely lose with independence, but strangely you don’t mention it. We’d lose you as our Chancellor. And, yes, that is guaranteed and, given your record, something that is very much worth voting for.
