    Default Cryptic - I think you should know?

    If you go
    I think you should know
    You're closing a door behind you
    And if we meet again
    Try not to pretend
    We lost anything of value
    Anyone got a clue which news item I'm talking about?

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Oh no, I'm against complete independence, i.e. a change from how things are now.

    I think it's frankly infantile the way so many English people seem to relish the idea.

    Anyway, wrong topic, as that wasn't the reply vetran was looking for,

    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    Most English people I know simply don't care. It is the Scottish people who want independence, which I agree is their right. But the Scots I have met can't give a reason of why they want it other than they hate the English.

    I disagree, if arguing that they pay more tax is on-topic, highlighting the additional benefits they get for paying higher tax is valid.
