    How the State mouth piece, commonly known as the BBC, always add a Tory criticism to even good news of Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP. It all goes lovely until the very last sentence. Was there any need to include that? Yes, if you are the Government mouth piece and are scared shitless of the Union breaking up!

    The clue is in the title...... UNITED Kingdom. I have every confidence that we will land heads up in this Euro divorce. Bring it on. Bit off topic but I was watching tele this evening and war criminal Blair was being interviewed. He had all his anti-Brexit arguments well rehearsed obviously but then he was asked which MP when he was leader most annoyed him and wound him up. Answer was Dennis Skinner! A Labour MP no less. Very much old skool and my favourite MP. Bet hes having a laugh tonight, feck you Blair! The peeps of Bolsover are still voting for me.

    Well I thought exactly the same, what's someone who is basically a Westminster paid Scottish mouthpiece with little or no power other than to count sheep doing trying to pretend she's got a say in world matters,,, go hame and howk the tatties love,,, or as the BBC reported the Scottish Conservitaves as putting it "get back to the day job"...

    Is it Sturgeon you don't like or anyone that wants independence? Still reckon you're not as against it this time as you were last.

    Does no one else recognse this Brexit warning stuuf? It's exactly the same as what the Scots were told in Indyref 1. "You can't leave and expect the same benefits", "thousands of people will lose their jobs", "Companys will desert UK/Scotland", "you will have to pay your share of EU/UK benefits"...etc.
    Now tell me how it's OK for the UK to ignore those arguments and it wasn't OK for Scotland. The hypocracy is mind-numbing. If the UK can go it alone, so can Scotland. We can even write a new "Great Repeal Bill" as well, and get rid of the crappy Westminster laws that we don't like.
    What's good for the goose has to be good for the gander!

    ...these GERS figures the government use to calcuate the deficit include these "services".

    Ask Nicola, and Salmond, pre the last  independence referendum she was quizzed by a shit interviewer Jerrmy Vine on his BBC 2 radio program and even that twat ripped the shit out of her, she could not answer one question he asked...

    Bullshit, Bullshit, and more Bulshit,,, and I don't think any of the rest are any better, minute they get a bit power it's me me me, get the aristocracy back in, they don't need the money, got more brains than the peasants that don't deserve a vote that have got us in this shit...

    I try to back up my arguments with links to news articles, political mags etc. but we always get the same unionist crap, "you're too wee to stand on your own two feet", (see above), "you have too large a deficit", "all the businesses will move South", "unemployment will rise" etc.

    There was talk of a independence vote some years back, company I worked for was Scottish but the majority of our bussines was in England, well just look at the population numbers, roughly 6m to 60m, had vote gon ahead and Scotland went independent we had plans in place to set up our head office in England, and if Scotland were to go independent many company's would jump ship, at the last independence referendum many Scottish based company's came out and declared they would move, I recall Standard Life being one of them,,, The same with Brexit, you can bet many company's will be looking at keeping a foot in Europe somehow...
