Britain eyes early free trade pact with Australia after leaving EU

Does that mean the Scots won’t be dealing with either the EU or Aus from now on? Is that a case of traitors double crossing? And it’s because you think we broke something that was already broken. 

 

The rest of UK will no doubt carry on trading with both of them. It may be reduced somewhat, depending on what terms they want to agree to, but that won’t be the end of trade, or the world as the Remainers would still have us believe. 

By definition a traitor is someone who does damage to their own country. You have just admitted that trade is going to be reduced therefor real harm is going to be done to the UK.

This means Brexiteers are the traitors.

No, I fully understand what you're saying; that it might cost us a couple of quid more for a bottle of Scotch whisky if Scotland gains independence (btw, there are plenty of gin distilleries in England). That's a separate argument. You changed the subject because you couldn't refute the hypocrisy that I pointed out. Let me ask you again: 

 

You called Brexit voters idiots for wanting to pull away from their closest trading partners. But you want Scotland to pull away from their closest trading partner. Wouldn't that make indy voters idiots too?

 

 

Still missing the point.

England will have to keep trading with Scotland even after independence because you can't get our stuff from elsewhere. What we want to do is keep trading with an even bigger market called the EU. Indeed we want to remain in the EU.

Now you do have an option. You could all boycott Scottish products just out of spite. Thats a choice many little Englanders may make.

But if you want to live in the dark drinking scrumpy wire in.

I sense that my and all Brexiteer confidence is bursting out all over. Whereas I sense your sour grapes are squirting everywhere. Well, at least in two directions: all over a failed Remain bid and a soon to be abandoned independence notion. 

Why soon to be abandoned? For the past 2 years polling has showed a steady upward climb for independence while support for the union has consistently waned. Now we have 3 separate polls over the past couple of weeks, one at 50/50 and the other two showing majority support or independence. Your prophesy seems to be based on ignorance rather than evidence.

With Salmond's trial on the horizon and Sturgeon's heir spectacularly falling from grace the above is little more than wishful thinking.

We had a "straw poll" in the office last week. Out of five respondents. three (a majority) were in favour of us becoming millionaires. When asked to demonstrate how this would be achieved an uneerie silence descended

Will the minority now be insulting the "majority" for the unforseeable future? Asking for a friend. 😉

In the last independence referendum the Scottish government produced a white paper detailing how independence would be achieved.

 

In Brexit the Leave campaign simply lied and hid behind vague promises.

And I look forward to the one that sets out how an independent Scotland will definitely be joining the EU, given that the EU can't possibly negotiate the terms for joining (and terms there will be) and the timeline for joining until after the result of the referendum is known

There's years and years of entertainment ahead of us then? Fabulous

Yes.

And now that the UK is no longer part of the EU expect some serious love bombing to head Scotlands way from Europe.
