Stagnation is the new 'doing quite well', it would seem. 

Unfortunately, you may well be right.

The UK economy was actually doing quite well until a couple of months ago. Many of the main EU states were already beginning to tank. 

All despite four years of anti-Brexit propaganda and Remainer doomsaying. 

The impending No Deal could result in us being even less facked than any of the EU hopes and attempts at punishment. 

The Bank of England said the economy could sink by 14% this year. The biggest decline since 1706.

GDP could fall by 25% in the3 months to the end of June.

Now the UK government is selling bonds with a negative yield.. Official interest rates could go negative.

Read all about it.

Britain is in a tight spot of its own making...dumb and dumber.

It's the same in most Western countries. The US are talking about a 40% drop in GDP with 50 million unemployed !! They are borrowing $5 trillion +. The baht will just get stronger in the face of this reckless action.

I don't accept your argument that those who didn't vote did not care. Some were too ill to vote, some were detained at Her Majesty's Pleasure, some, like myself, were abroad and had no idea they could vote in an referendum.

Still it's all too late now as the UK economy plummets towards oblivion.

No, only 35 years. Seems like yesterday, but that's because time stops still in Thailand, one is constantly living in the present.

So, please answer my question on the scenario of the Scots in an Independence vote, on your logic even though the majority would want independence they should stay as not everyone voted right? Simple yes or no please.

That's the problem with referendums, right there in your last sentence- a simple yes or no. In Brexit did yes to leave mean leave with a deal or not? 

The situation is too complex to be solved by a simple yes or no.

Regarding Scotland or any referendum, the problem of non voters can be dealt with by making voting compulsory as in 22 countries. Voters would have the choice to disagree with either option if they wished but at least everyone would have expressed a view and a majority opinion could be ascertained.

Of course a problem in Scotland is the chronic alcoholism which could lead some voters to tick the wrong box.

How drunk must one be to have one's vote discarded?

But I digress, ( only an old joke dear TV Scots), make voting compulsory then see the results.

Thanks , Yes I forgot to mention that since the election Labour actually dropped 4% before they recover that loss and yes with the Conservative running at 53% in April blows out way the 53%  that voted for parties which promised a referendum in December

as most of the Conservative gains are coming for the Lib-dems losing 6% since the election

 

Except that the Conservatives had dropped to 48% by 19th May, probably lower now.

 

However, I have said many times that opinion polls are unreliable as they only count a few thousand at most. In the GE the whole electorate had the chance to express an opinion, and of those who did, 53% voted for a final referendum on the deal.

 

But as I said, it's a moot point because there is no way that Cummings and his political underling will ever allow it and their majority in the house is too large for Conservative rebels to force them into holding one.
