  1. For some reason, the English working class are never happier than when they are doffing their caps to rich buffoons who keep them in poverty. Baffling but true.
  2. Good to see Mogg doing his bit to help encourage more Scots to move towards independence. Jacob Rees-Mogg says Tories 'must undo' devolution and restore constitution I struggle to understand the point of his frequent attacks on devolution and his belittling of Scottish wishes. Granted, he is no intellectual titan, but even he must see how thoroughly disliked he and his likes are the further north you travel from London, and that his every utterance is a further nail in the union's coffin? I can only assume that he is unconcerned about his reception outside the home co
  3. I am not sure if you are serious about the udi option, but this is something I would object to every step of the way. We don't need Westminster to authorise a referendum, but we do need some sort of plebiscite. I saw some report recently (can't remember where, unfortunately) which highlighted that in virtually every country which has declared udi over the past century, it led to civil war or economic collapse.
  4. It is the reality of the UK that is driving more and more Scots to want the get the hell out of it.
  5. You do realise that simply repeating that old canard ad nauseum won't make it any less untrue that it was the first time some desperate yoon raised it, don't you? Spain won’t block Scottish EU membership
  6. One swallow does not a summer make. From the link I added to my previous post, here is a table of the polls of 2020. A total of 20 polls this year - 2 tied, 2 led by No and 16 by Yes. I must admit to admiring your fortitude if you can look at this with optimism for the future of the union.
  7. Are you sure about that? Maybe you need to check for colour blindness? (link)
  8. Twisting what? I am very open about the result. It is you who keeps saying variations of: That was untrue in 2014 and it is even further from reality now.
  9. I think the term 'independence' is sufficient for most. No need to try to link it to a British folly which led to the deaths of up to 2 million people.
  10. Sure Independence referendum figures revealed: Majority of Scots born here voted YES while voters from elsewhere in UK said NO As for the source, the Daily Record, also known as the Daily Rangers, is a staunchly unionist paper which supported Better Together during the 2014 referendum campaign.
  11. Like all finite resources, all fields will become uneconomical over time; but hydrocarbon economics is much more multi-faceted and dynamic that simply saying 'the North Sea is uneconomic'. 60 years after production started, companies are still committing billions every year to future development, both in new fields and in technology which will extend the life of existing fields. The picture has changed significantly, but the future is definitely not grim.
  12. Now Vogie, surely you know this to be lie. Surely you have picked up it, given the number of times I have had to explain it on every Scotland thread when so many people get it wrong. For your awareness (again): 2014 - the majority of Scots voted for independence from the UK; majority of non Scottish voters voted to remain. 2020 - 14 consecutive Polls showing majority of ALL voters want independence from the UK
  13. Please show us those definitions; while you are at it, and flexing that Nobel-like economic nous, can you explain how a country without borrowing powers, can be 'fiscally broke'? Was the addition of 'fiscally' intended to impart oomph?
