UK gilts are supposedly 'safe'. Anyone who bought this one (issued at £100) has lost 75% of their capital if they sell it now. Pension funds have been pushed towards gilts by the regulators for the last 20 years.
Delegates who sang God Save the King didn’t sing “the” national anthem, @BBCr4today. They sang the national anthem of England.
In Wales, Scotland & Ireland, we have our own national anthems. None of them are “the” national anthem.
Hope that helps.
8 years ago tonight I really believed I would wake up to an independent Scotland where the people who live and work in this beautiful and resource rich country would be responsible for the running of it. Just imagine if we had secured this future. We will yet.
Eight years ago, I was 16 and the independence referendum was my first vote. I was hopeful about Scotland moving forward as an independent nation. We were scaremongered and lied to about Brexit, then we got dragged out anyway. Still Yes, and always will be. #scottishindependence
