If he stirs it well enough, a chef doesn't need to consume the entire pot of soup to know how it tastes.

Whilst it doesn't matter how long you shake the can of soup, you will never know how it tastes without opening it.

Whatever happens it's hardly going to make much difference. It's not 'united' as it is regardless of any Brexit referendum.

 

It's quite an achievement to hear English spoken especially in large parts of London and other cities. It's hard to unite with people when you have nothing in common with them.

 

Few of them know what the poppy signifies let alone do they have a clue why a tiny minority of us wear one every November.

 

 

 

 

 

And even those who do wear a poppy show it such disrespect! What is the country coming to???

Things have changed dramatically since 5 years ago. Wouldn't you agree?

Of course things have changed in the past five years and only a fool would argue otherwise However, the perception of any of this change being at all 'dramatic' is questionable. I would be more amenable to debate the suggestion that there may have been a 'fundamental' change.

Pithy... maybe it's Cullen Skink in that wee can, naw?

 

Apart frae that, it's obvious that ye cannae stir ony soup while it's still in the microwave.

It doesn't?

No, it doesn't

Can you give me a few of your ideas why "the UK doesn't work well for anybody within it, whether they be English, Welsh, Scottish or Northern Irish"?

 

My two-word question was meant to elicit some degree of validation of the above claim, whether it be from yourself or the member who originally offered it. I am particularly interested in the claim that it doesn't work well for anybody within it.

Im a British citizen and tax payer and no one asked me for my opinion on this so called 'poll'

 

Its horse manure.

If the entire Kingdom had been asked (polled) in 2014 the jocks would have achieved their (SNP) aim at the first attempt.

'Fundamental' in this context is subjective.

The Poppy can be worn anywhere as per the RBL website although I would not be at all surprised to see the Mogg sporting one commemorating Wellingtons victory @Waterloo 🧐

UK will absolutely exist. They will still be bickering over Brexit despite EU imploding in five years anyway.

Apologies for my slow response. 

 

That there is a stark difference in political perspectives has been clear for some time, but the most recent polling shows just how far apart Scottish and English perspectives actually are. Of course, it is an entirely valid view that this is simply the effect of representative democracy, however when it is also clear that the tail (as one of our TV friends has referred to Scotland) can never wag the dog, but must always follow the direction the dog chooses to take, you could ask yourself, quite reasonably, whether you want to remain without influence in the journey you are taking.   

 

As for the rest of the UK, well apparently Scotland is subsidised by English taxpayers so we would lift that burden from their weary shoulders. Our non-Tory MPs are considered a nuisance in the HoC so we would remove that unwanted intrusion in the mother of parliaments (and there are expected to be a lot more of them come the New Year). And our courts have thrown a spanner in the Brexit works that brought a halt to the PM's cunning plan. 

 

See - Scotland out of the UK would solve so many issues.
