You're really so out-of-touch?

This is from today:

If indyref2 was held tomorrow then 42 per cent of the people interviewed said they would vote 'Yes', while 49 per cent would mark the 'No' box on the ballot paper.

Re: Rejoice and rejoin

I don't pay attention to polls, it's all down to the votes on the day. If the SNP get a majority, then they get a majority, if they don't, then they don't.
Good or bad, whatever's going to happen will happen, getting ruffled feathers won't help.

Solasch, the rest of the UK is our biggest export market by far (60%). Why split and make a hard border between you and your biggest market? It doesn't make sense.

If they did it wouldn't be true though, would it?
We trade more with the rest of the world than we do with a fragmented union of 27 disparate countries you know.

Why should you? Northern ireland is in a customs union with the EU, and with the UK. Why shouldn't an independent scotland be able to do the same? Especially if that scotland enters the EU. They would become part of the trade deal the EU has with the rUK. Trade could continue unfettered.

Is this because you got your first answer to that post so terribly wrong?


As you know, this remains one of the few contested areas so describing it with such certainty as you're doing is (as usual for you) quite deceitful.

Secondly considering the trouble it's already caused in Northern Ireland (and indeed Eire), it's hardly a great example for your theorizing is it?
So that's another one of these from you:

The trouble you refer to is caused by boris johnson. Remember he saud there would be no checks, send them to his office so he could put them in the bin?
I trust the scots are more honourable than boris?

Nobody is more dishonest and treacherous than the unelected mafia that run your small country.

Northern Ireland voted overwhelmingly to remain in the UK. The problems are the making of the U.K. government who decided to forge ahead with Brexit without fully understanding the implications which was one of the reasons the referendum was advisory only.
Blaming the EU just highlights your ignorance.

The Scots will make up their own minds
