The UK Investor speaker, Moneyweek columnist and gold guru and professional comedian Dominic Frisby sends me a flyer for his gigs at the Edinburgh Festival. Unlike some want to be writers, such as Ben Turney who are accidental comedians in that we just laugh at them, Dominic really is a professional comedian and is very funny so if you are in Edinburgh this year go see him. His main gig is Tax!

Malcolm Stacey reckons that an independent Scotland will be innundated with folks from England seeking a better life but then he also believes in and worships the Money Tree. Tom Winnifrith reckons Scotland should be liberated, towed off into the Atlantic and sunk. After the past four weeks you have probably had enough of whinging celtic bores but if you want more where that came from here is a man who has fled the post industrial wastelands in search of work, liberty and the joys of free enterprise but retains a romantic sympathy for his welfare addicted compatriots. Over to Nigel McSomerville.

At 7 AM it is clear that the Tories are going to be able to govern alone for five more years. As someone who runs a small business, who would like the economy to prosper, to see jobs created and the deficit cut and who wants us all to have a say on Europe I rejoice. My only regret is that I was not with her wife and her lefty pals at their election night party as they tried to work out how to but the corks back in the champagne bottle.

A 201% increase in AIM-quoted Scotgold (SGZ)’s formal measured and indicated gold resource at Cononish in north-east Scotland’s Grampian Highlands, combined with a new mining plan for the project, has not impressed the stockmarket much, but chief executive Richard Gray suggests its prospects could now be transformed. He argues the new, confidently categorised 248,000-oz. resource, with an average grade up 9% to a robust 14.3 grammes of gold per tonne of ore, should make it easier to finance the project, three years after a previous tempt to launch it came to nothing.

At an emotional level I am sorry to see that my Celtic Cousins in the Greece of the North have not voted for a Scottish Free State. But this prediction of disaster both sides of the border is based on economics and not emotion. I suggest that those Unionists celebrating ponder life in Quebec and think again. Like Proud Edward’s Army.

The father of legendary bear raider Evil Knievil is not only the greatest living classical scholar but in his youth played rugby for Scotland (his mother being Scottish). Somewhere the athletic gene passed his 25 stone son by. George Cawkwell (the father) is, like his son, a NO supporter but feels incensed that as an Oxford resident he cannot vote in the referendum.

Hello Share Twiddlers. Patriotism can be a dangerous thing. I don’t altogether agree with it. But watching ‘The Last Night of the Proms’ at the weekend, I was struck by the pure fun people were having singing Rule Britannia. It was also uplifting to see all those Union Jacks being waved at the same time as Welsh dragons and Scottish flags.

Scotland is the Greece of the North. 89% of its population are net takers from the State. Its share of the National debt is £108 billion which will be hard to support. It has a bloated Government sector and with oil revenues set to decline its financial position can only get worse. The only answer is independence. It must vote YES.
