    I am a Scot and personally would prefer Scotland to remain in the UK if for no other reason than saving the scots from themselves.

    Saxo on Brexit: If Britain quits, what then for the EU, Scotland?
    The UK is not part of the EU inner circle that is the Eurozone. But its hefty financial contributions to the bloc, plus the cultural bridge to the US that the UK provides, will shake the union at a time of growing support for continental Eurosceptic parties. Meawhile a leave vote seen as mainly English in origin could embolden many in Scotland to push to quit the UK, with the aim of Scotland joining the EU its own right.

    Thank you for the insights of this article. I was under the impression that state pensions were met from current income (National Insurance contributions) rather than reserves....

    Portfolio kaput? Drown your sorrows in Lehman Brothers Whiskey

    Yahoo Finance
    The once mighty Wall Street firm whose collapse kicked off the 2008 financial crisis is back — as a whiskey. London entrepreneur James Green worked with distillers in South Carolina and Scotland to create three different blends so people can taste the story of the biggest bankruptcy in US history, reports Yahoo Finance. "'Snapfire' is a young, spicy whiskey, meant to evoke the financial system's collapse. 'Ashes of Disaster' is smokier, and in the words of Green, has 'a contrite, bereft peatiness.' The third spirit, 'Evergreen,' has 'notes of optimism' and represents rebirth," Yahoo Finance says. Barclays, which bought part of Lehman, fought unsuccessfully to stop the whiskey from hitting the market. The whiskey maker's attorney said Barclays let the trademark on the Lehman Brothers name expire. "Who knows, if Lehman Brothers Whiskey takes off, you might soon be ordering Enron Vodka or Bear Stearns Beer at a watering hole near you," Yahoo says.

    The 'silliness' of the UK election

    Global Economic Analysis
    If you come from the United Kingdom, the first-past-the-post electoral system seems not only natural but just intrinsically right. Not according to Mish Shedlock who lambasts a system that can dismiss a party such as UKIP as irrelevant to the outcome of the election, simply because it does not enjoy concentrations of support like many of the other parties. He labels the whole campaign process as steeped in "silliness" and if he had a vote (which he doesn't), he'd be advocating a 'none-of-the-above' option to be reserved for his cross.
