    If Scotland becomes independent who will finance it? The payment it currently receives from England will cease. The EU will offer to support Scotland financially if the Scots will join the EU and once again they will not be independent. If, or rather when, the rest of United Kingdom leaves the EU, the EU will collapse, it cannot exist without Britains contribution to its economy. Where then will Scotland be? This will be another Darien Venture

      That extra money is paid for by revenue from Scottish oil fields. Contrary to popular belief, English taxpayers are not helping us poor Scots scrape out an existence in our mud-huts. Search on TVclip... 'tory admits Scotland is not subsidised by England'.

    Oh YE of little faith....Remember this. Scotland voted Labour (not Tony Blair's Tory Lite) Real Labour, socially aware labour who created the NHS, Pensions, Holidays, Employment rights etc etc etc. Labour.
    Scotland voted overwhelmingly for Labour at every General Election after World War II. THEN they got what England voted for!
    Including Thatcher!!!!
    The Scottish National Party is a tool to take back power from the Zoo at Westminster. Then Scotland can choose to have who or whatever we want in government. Left-Right-Centre or break away from "divide and rule" then elect people, not parties. Free to choose.
    Incidentally I love the English, my Wife and her wonderful family are English from Northants, both my Sons-In-Law are English and I believe that England would benefit greatly from being a country again instead of part of the U.K.

    Anywhere the SNP are mentioned the worst of the Unionist Brexiteers appear to write down their ugly thoughts for everyone to see, displaying the exact reasons anyone with any decency and integrity wants nothing to do with them. If they had any points worth discussing they'd be able to express those, instead it's just juvenile nonsense and name calling. They offer nothing but tired cliches and hatred, not realising they are doing the SNP's work for them. They are easily encouraged and will always take bait. Progressive & Inclusive, Saor Alba

    Scotland is a tiny economy, wouldn't they just become entirely reliant on the E.U. thus at their beck and call, just swapping Westminster for Brussels? Also, who would fund their NHS, student fees, prescriptions etc? (assuming they were admitted of course)

    I can see Scotland voting for independance and joining the EU if Boris gets a majority (which he will). And for a short honeymoon period things will be hunky dory, but when the nation realises it can no longer afford all those freebies the Scots have grown accustomed too, they'll turn on Sturgeon.

      Am I the only one who sings a Jeremy Corbyn government is actually really hard to accomplish because despite what the leaders of the say as we saw in the last parliament it is hard to get majority for a Jeremy Corbyn gov if Boris gets a minority gov he probably will still have the majority of the house because that majority is scared of Jeremy Corbyn so we'll be back where we started

    SNP voter here, won’t be voting SNP until Sturgeon commits to delivering Brexit before calling for another Independence referendum
    I don’t want to have another independence referendum if at some point down the line we can just ignore the vote because remainers think they know better
    So for this reason until SNP pledge to deliver a full & final Brexit I’m not voting for them

    How can she decide it's OK to stop brexit when it was voted on? She is a globalist. It's easier to control UK within the EU. Ridiculous legislation that is imposed by the non elected in another country cannot be right for UK. This global warming hoax and global utilities smart meters are globally pushed by billionaire utility owners. Zero carbon would kill millions. Isthat the plan?! Just asking. UK needs control not dictation by those that have not been elected, that cannot be removed. This is the goal of the globalists. Take over by stealth in a disguised way. If they tried with weapons it would be noticed but the end goal is the same. We cannot allow people from foreign lands to set legislation, law, and rules within the UK, when these people do not have the UKs best interests at heart, are not elected by UK citizens, and cannot be removed by them. How stupid would that be?!

      '''immediately or upon ratification, effectively established the legislative independence of the self-governing Dominions of the British Empire from the United Kingdom'''
      '''As the statute removed all of the British parliament's authority to legislate (for the Dominions)'''

      @zipZIP Not much of a say with only 59 of the 650 seats. I understand it's done proportional to population however it doesn't lessen the fact that we don't really have much of a voice as is. Yes we've had more devolution given to us and we have free prescriptions, free education and a better NHS because of it. However more could still be done if we got to keep all of our tax revenues including from oil which is a huge industry. The UK has been slowly decaying into a less and less significant worldwide role since the end of the empire and the hard truth is that our politicians at Westminster (all of them) behave like a bunch of noisy spoilt preschoolers. Even without Brexit I do not see the UK ever being anything more than just a small island off the coast of Europe ever again on a scale of world politics and political sway

    • Hunter Game
      Hunter Game 27 days ago +1

      @zipZIP Scotland should leave the union even if not for Brexit. It does not make sense for us to remain part of the UK where we don't get a say in how we want our future to be and how we budget our economy. Scotland is far more open minded and progressive than the majority of England but due to the union we are now being dragged out of the EU against our will with no say about it. This is the final straw.
      Also I doubt brexit will be done within the decade. We can't even agree a plan to leave the EU, imagine how long it'll take to get that noisy riot in Westminster to actually pass new trade agreements and the like. We've already cycled through 2 PMs who can't do anything and we're about to get our 3rd GE in mearly 5 years. We have become the laughing stock of Europe and a new verb 'to brexit' has been ironically created as a mockery of our governments failure across dozens of European countries. If we can't even conclude Brexit chapter 1, how on earth are we to get to the end of this crisis within even 10years?

      In contrast , , ''Currently 32% of taxation collected in Scotland is in the form of taxes under the control of the Scottish parliament and 67% of all taxation collected in Scotland goes directly to the UK government in taxation that is a reserved matter of the UK parliament''
      ''over half of all taxes collected in Scotland remains under the direct control of the UK parliament which has remained a reserved matter to itself all powers over Corporation tax, National Insurance, Value-added tax (VAT), Capital gains tax, Inheritance tax, Aggregates Levy Insurance Premium Tax and Motoring taxes''
