Re: Another Scottish Referendum just around the corner?

Without Scottish oil and gas (all 200+ years worth of it) Fact Check - There is nowhere near 200+ years of Scottish oil and gas. UK_oil_gas_production.png Production from 1970 - 2012 43.6 BOE or so, estimates vary slightly. Estimated remaining reserves ..... Some 41 billion barrels of oil equivalen...

Re: Another Scottish Referendum just around the corner?

What has actually changed is that Scots recognised that Labour was a lousy representative for Scotland with lacklustre policies and they can sense that they can get even more out of England by supporting the SNP waving an independence flag. When it comes to the crunch, they will see that they cant ...

Re: Another Scottish Referendum just around the corner?

... I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Scotland co-opted back into the EU immediately upon an OUT vote from the UK. As we've seen explicitly in the past few weeks, this is a fast moving situation and just about ANYTHING is possible. You can't rule anything out, especially if the Brexit negotiato...

Re: Another Scottish Referendum just around the corner?

Sturgeons Magic bullet is the opportunity to hold another Scottish referendum before Brexit gets going, this way she can play up the uncertainty and the probable anti British feeling that's already brewing in Europe. As for favourable circumstances, Brexit just handed her the most favourable circums...

Re: Another Scottish Referendum just around the corner?

I understand when she went to visit the EU recently, Sturgeon got nothing should Scotland separate from the UK, that Scotland would have to join the EU as a new nation and not slip in under the old UK umbrella. And there is the price of oil and also they wouldnt be able to use the £ any more. so it...

Another Scottish Referendum just around the corner?

Today big Theresa heads north over the border to plead for a 'special union' between the two countries, given that Scotland voted 68%/32% In/Out in the EU referendum Sturgeon has said this is the 'Constitional trigger' for a second Scottish referendum. Would she win it? What then for a divided UK, o...

Re: Brexit consequences

Re: It's not rocket science

That seeming intelligent people can think to make an argument with someone who's sole reference materials are fictional YouTube videos (made by cynical individuals to extract $$$s from the weak willed and the emphatically stupid) is the one remarkable thing about this thread.
