I’m fed up to the back teeth with the Scottish referendum. I hope they vote “Yes”.

Yorkshire has a bigger population and a higher Gross Domestic Product per head than Scotland, but nobody has been throwing money at us for the last 300 years.

So, when they’ve gone and taken their kilts, sporrans, haggis and Hogmanay with them, we can press for some of that money to spent here.

But of course it won’t happen. They’ll vote “No”, get Devo-Max and even more money thrown at them.

Time to start an independence for Yorkshire campaign!
