I have been an avid reader of Easdale People for quite some time now, and have enjoyed reading the comments of persons intimately involved in local issues which affect the island’s future.
What occurs to me is that the future of Easdale Island is now affected by national issues. I refer of course to the SNP’s bid for an Independent Scotland in 2014.
I have a thought which may be of interest to EP readers. It is simply this. If independence is declared, what will happen to the Royal Mail?
Will all the little red vans be driven south of the border or, if this option is considered too extreme, will the new Scottish Government be required to purchase this considerable fleet of vehicles from the English and have them re-sprayed blue, with a white Saltire upon them? Who would pay for all this work? What effect might it have on the price of a postage stamp from Scotland??
Just a thought. What do others think?
