  2. Scotland offered independence on a plate? how could the contemporary Scot turn his back on the ancestors who spilt copious blood to resist enslavement, what has gone wrong with psyche of the Scot? the decision left is for the future youth and not the wimps of Scotland having not enough pride to resist?

  7. MANAMA, Bahrain, Oct 26 (NNN-BNA) – Bahrain King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, has received a letter of thanks from Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, in response to a letter sent by the King, which expressed his support for a strong United Kingdom, following the Scottish Referendum last month.

    In her letter, Queen Elizabeth II thanked the King for his kind message, and extended her warmest good wishes to the King and to his family.

    The close friendship and historic relationship between the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of Bahrain, extends for more than two centuries.

    The two nations are currently preparing for the bicentenary celebration of formal ties established in the early 1800’s.– NNN-BNA
