On day one, an independent Scotland will look pretty much as it does today. Becoming independent is just the starting point.
There will be new government departments based in Scotland. We will have our own Treasury and Department of Foreign Affairs. But instead of paying for these services to be based in London, we will have them in Scotland, creating the jobs here and boosting the Scottish economy.
There will be some costs to setting up these new departments in Scotland, but this will be more than offset by the money we save. For example, we will have a £250 million annual saving from no longer contributing to the cost of the UK’s current nuclear weapons. And, there will be a £50 million annual saving from no longer paying our share of the cost of all those Lords and politicians in the Westminster Parliament.
