You're not wrong there. Tories in kilts is another name for the SNP.
Most of Scotland voted against independence.
Sorry, but that's just tosh and you know it. The Tories are villified in Scotland, hated is probably not strong enough description. I've family there and they have volt face turned from Labour to SNP because they are an independence party. 80% of the seats in Scotland went to the SNP, who's prime manifesto pledge is 'get independence done'.
You can try and massage or Borisify the figures all you want, but the Tories would sell their mothers for a mandate like that.
Independence is coming, it's only a matter of time now.
Actually they're more or less the same now - one lot Scottish Nationalists and the Tories basically English nationalists. Personally I dislike nationalism in politics - de Gaulle had it about right when he said
“Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first.”
The SNP got 45% of the vote in Scotland, almost identical to the 44.7% vote for independence in the 2014 referendum. In other words nothing seems to have changed.
If you don't believe most of Scotland voted against independence how do you explain this map?
