In Topic: Tax Disc No More

Yesterday, 08:42 PM

Well, looks like I will be removing the tax disc and holder from the Focus tomorrow.  It'll be strange not seeing it in the corner of the windscreen anymore, but I'm not sure I'll exactly "miss" it.

 

Then again, I'm not nicknamed "the procrastinator" for nothing, so therefore the disc (which expires on the 31st of January 2015) will probably remain there at least until it expires - regardless of whether or not it is required.

I thought the result isn't announced til the morning, around 7am I think I read?

That is correct.  The coverage from 10:40 to 06:00 on STV will give the results for individual constituencies however.

If it is a no... can another referendum happen again?

It can, and to my knowledge there would be nothing to legally stop it, however it is unlikely it would happen again in "our generation". 

 

Don't get me wrong, I am a Yes voter (voted this morning in fact), but if we lose tomorrow then there would be no point in another referendum in the next few years as the result wouldn't change, in fact it would probably go further towards the No side.

 

There will be live coverage on the BBC and STV (I will be watching the latter) through the wee small hours if anybody wishes to watch it.

Bye bye tax disc
Bye bye fast hairdryers
And superhoovers ahah wat a planet

With regards to limiting the wattage on Vacuum Cleaners and people's negative opinions about that, I suggest you read this thread on the subject.

 

In terms of losing the tax disc, I won't be shedding any tears over it!!  I have a feeling though that it may make a lot of (stupid) people think they can get away without taxing their vehicle because it isn't visible.

to be honest guys why fix somethink that's not broken

If you don't think there is something broken with the UK then I don't know where you've been living, but from my perspective it is well past repair.

 

Independence is the only way to, put bluntly, GET OUR OWN WAY. 

 

One prime example is the fact that we have Tories in goverment now, if it was down to the people of Scotland only, Mr. Cameron would never have even came CLOSE to being elected - but because the English also had their say, we are now stuck with him.

 

I am an SNP supporter, but to be honest, I wouldn't mind if we got another party elected in an independent country, because at least then it would be a party that Scotland voted for fair and square. 

 

It boils my blood to keep hearing that we are "better together".  If that is really the case, then why aren't we better already!  And to those who profess that we are, I think you need to take those rose tinted glasses off and see what things are really like in 2014.

 

I am not anti-English, just anti-Stupidity, which is what staying in the UK is.

 

Needless to say, on September 18th I will be proud to vote YES.
