Berwick wants to join Scotland

Residents in the English town of Berwick-upon-Tweed have voted in a TV poll to"re-join Scotland".

60% of people who voted wanted to the Northumberland town to become part of Scotland again- the main reason being the better public services available in Scotland.

Organisers of the TV programme said the poll turnout was 1,957 votes- compared to some 3,800 in the last local elections.


There has been pro-Scotland and pro-England campaigns to persuade voters, with both campaigns highlighting the situation whereby services in Scotland are far better than in England.

Former school teacher Barbara Herdman campaigned in the town for a pro-English vote and for a change in how public spending is allocated across the UK. She said: "I think that Berwick should stay part of England because it's so unfair what is happening at the moment.

"The Scots are getting more money than we are. I'm not saying that the Scots should not get what they get, but that we should get the same."

***

Should Berwick actually become part of Scotland, it could be a risky move. Scotland may well have better public services thanks to money from England, but if the UK splits up those public services will undoubtedly become a thing of the past.

Then again, the fickle people of Berwick may then decide that the grass is in fact greener in England's pleasant lands.

I say that any official poll on Berwick re-joining Scotland, regardless of the outcome, should be binding for 50 years.

If England is such a rosy place to be, why are the English voting to leave it so readily? I think given the 300 years of exploitation and domination Scots have had to endure, 300 years of similar treatment might be a useful lesson for the English to learn. No more Westminster, no English parliament, just the Scots Parliament deciding your destiny for the next 300 years. Enjoy !

Even the bbc put it this way:

"Residents in the Northumberland town of Berwick-upon-Tweed have "voted" in favour of becoming part of Scotland."

I see weve got the typical control freak comment:

"300 years of similar treatment might be a useful lesson for the English to learn. No more Westminster, no English parliament, just the Scots Parliament deciding your destiny for the next 300 years. Enjoy !"
