Scotland must be given new independence vote - Sturgeon

Because as with EVEL, we appreciate your concerns but they are wholly irrelevant. Scotland is a sovereign nation and the worries of those in the country next door are inconsequential.

 

Scotland isn't a sovereign nation. Nor are England, Wales or Northern Ireland.

 

You can pretend however much you want, but that's the fact.

If Scotland would like independence, fair enough, but what worries me is the SNP has not published (to my mind) any policies on how they will fund the economy..........where is the money going to come from?  When Salmon started this process he was asked what currency Scotland would use if they got independence (because there will be a transitional period before possibly joining the EU) .  "Oh we will use Sterling".  The then Prime Minister gave him short shrift and told him to think again!  So even on the most basic issues, these so called leaders do not have a plan, so what hope in hell do they have in leading Scotland in to the EU?

 

Miss mouthy thinks she can demand her cake, eat it, have it and complain it wasn't to her satisfaction.

 

She thinks she'll negotiate a wonderful deal and screw the UK. 

 

Sooner or later reality will kick in.

 

Most Scots are sensible enough to see through her and her manipulation of the English haters.

Correct. 

"Boris Johnson may have a mandate to take England out of the European Union. He emphatically does not have a mandate to take Scotland out of the European Union. Scotland must have a choice over our own future."

Last time I checked Scotland were not members of the European Union, But don't forget they are members of the UK which IS A member of the European Union and will be leaving

Not a chance.. The SNP have blocked Boris on Brexit so expect the same serving back.

It was Boris that blocked Brexit.  We'sd have been out months ago if he and his mates had supported their leader.

Scotland already had a referendum - the result was to remain part of the UK.

 

Somebody else was recently asking for another referendum on Brexit....see how that turned out!

 

Support the Union, out of the EU....and the UK will be stronger together!

And just how are Scotland going to fund their independence, defend their sovereign nation, fund their education, their police, pay off their slice of the National debt, build and maintain roads and infrastructure?

I'd give it months before bankruptcy.

No, he's an antisemitic pig Australian.

You are totally correct in your statement, but then again, so is she. Scotland has emphatically and repeatedly made clear that our aspirations lie on a different trajectory to the wishes of our southern neighbours, both with regards membership of the EU and how we want to be governed. I have no desire whatsoever to stand in the way of Brexit or the Nasty Party in power for another 5 years if that is what you want, but I don't agree that my country should be forced to repeatedly live with the choices made by English voters, especially when they are consistently abhorrent to me and my countrymen. 

 

Don't disagree with you but as usual this coin, as other coins, has another side also.

 

For many it seems natural that Scotland is given a new opportunity re independence.

 

However, I would not surprised if UK is not prepared for such right now.

With the election result of yesterday's paper dropping a long and difficult process with the EU is ahead,

the position / role of NI may be set in motion.

Stability is normally fancied by politicians, kicking Scotland too in motion at this time will not improve

re stability.

Many will say

 

I would not be surprised if UK concludes to postpone the Scotland bit, if it formally surfaces,

until after Brexit is sorted, which may easily take 2-3 years.
