An important day for all those who believe in democracy and the right of a people to choose their future without being bound by restrictions imposed by others. 

 

The crowdfunded People's AS30 action commences today. The objective is to ask the court to declare "that the Scottish Parliament has the power under the provisions of the Scotland Act 1998 to legislate for the holding of a referendum on whether Scotland should be an independent country, without requiring the consent of the UK Government."

I am not wholly confident in its chances, but even a defeat will be useful in some respects.

So? Now they may want something different. And judging by polls they do, especially since the economic landscape changed drastically.

Self determination, not just for the British when it concerns the EU, but also for the Scots when it concerns the UK.

Polls, bit like the Beano, a good laugh......Wait for the real deal......😋

Correct. Hence the referendum in 2014. That is my argument. The Scots keep banging on about how they want the choice. They had the choice and said NO.

 

As a matter of fact, I would be happy to see Scotland gain independence. In fact I think England should beat everyone to it and have a referendum themselves. A referendum for England to be an independent nation. Leave the rest of the union to Scotland, Wales and NI. England takes everything they want and closes the borders. Then let's see the complaints from across the borders about how nationalistic we are.

"Wait for the real deal."

Exactly, the sooner the better. Glad we agree again.

Why do you and others keep ignoring the completely different economic situation after brexit. No need to answer.

Scotland would be happy. I dont know why england insists scotland has no say in whether they want in or out.

 

Yet say they can decide if in or out of the eu.

 

Using that analogy, if the eu says uk must remain then they should remain. Uk should be given the choice.

Oh dear. Go back to my post, and many others for that matter, to try and get a fist of things before you embarrass yourself again.
