Back to Zol, there's a power struggle in the Kremlin. Putin seems relaxed and happy in many of his recent public meetings, especially with recent eastern deals. There's going to be advantageous opportunity for us, as Rosneft, Gazprom may need to offload some assets. Plus, we are due news from our recent acquisitions. Russia has been forced away from Europe trade wise, by the US. Which hopes to supplant itself in it's place, via gas and the Atlantic trade agreement. Europe will be subservient to global corporations. Democracy gone, a new world order.
There's so much market manipulation going on, that normal long term planning for even historically strong companies have taken a battering. I'm even getting paranoid enough to believe that the BP Mexico event was some sort of fixed event. World chaos in resource rich areas seem to be the norm. Nigeria, Sudan, Russia/Crimea, Iraq, Libya (again), many South American countries opposed to the US, Iran, Syria, Hong Kong protests (Russia uses it for sources of alternative finance) and many more. You'll find the UK, US and France in one way or another involved. This creates distraction from the financial woes of the west and unpredictable markets, except for those controlling events. That's why a possible Scottish yes vote has rocked the boat for the above mentioned. A black swan event.
Parliament said no to war with Syria. Mainly, because of Russia. Isis, was created by the US and the UK and is manned by many British passport holders to fight against Asad. Then we had Ukraine, recently back to Iraq. Suddenly, these horrible beheadings, American and British by a British passport holder. Watch how we end up bombing in Syria. More than one way to skin a cat. I was brought up to believe we were the good guys. Not anymore.
Has attended the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation on the 11th to 12th of September. He's met leaders from all of the Stans, China, India, Mongolia, Japan, Iran etc. Who needs the EU. Whatever sanctions have been imposed, Putin will already found an alternative to counter it. China on it's own has huge amounts of dollars available to invest.
We would still keep the name Britain. It originated from the Silurian tribe, of the South Wales Valleys and Gloucester/Hereford border areas. It was the name given for a future a king, Prydain which sounds like Pridain. They are an ancient British tribe that wasn't defeated by the Romans but come to an agreement. They were the original people painted blue, mentioned by the Romans.
If it got bad here and using the same logic as Ukraine, we should send troops to Scotland. If the Irish go to help them out we should do to them and the separatists, what is done in east Ukraine. If the yes vote rises in Scotland, watch how uncivilised they will be portrayed, there would definitely be a fight over oil. It's all wrong, we shouldn't be involved in Ukraine. Scotland was allowed the vote, because it was thought to be a definite no. If I was a Jock, I'd vote Yes.
£ is down 10% today. If Scotland left, we would be in a lot of trouble. In fact it's similar to east ukraine and Ukraine. The east has most of the resources and produces most of the country's wealth. It's all about resources.
Even though the west is putting restrictions on Russia, it's still expanding other avenues to finance and trading partners elsewhere. In fact Putin is on the road today. As pointed out by brt, there could be potential opportunities for zol as a result of this chaos. Where there's chaos, there's money. A report on Ukraine (slavyansk.org) indicates a possible government attack tomorrow, timed roughly to EU sanctions. Add Syria to this and the dollar has risen and gold/oil has dropped. This puts economic pressure on Russia. Scotland, was a potential loose cannon to carefully laid plans. Hence the Royals, Politicians, banks, businesses, etc to the rescue. Seriously, Scotland after about 2 years would be better off on it's own. With a small population, educated population, existing markets, fresh water, coal, oil, historic financial background and if ejected from the EU will have a fishing industry again.
