Another Blow for Scottish Independence

Oh dear ...

The people of Scotland would vote against separatism in a second Scottish independence ballot according to two new polls that will weaken First Minister Nicola Sturgeonís demands for a referendum rerun after losing 2014ís ďonce in a lifetimeĒ vote.

One of the polls, by Sevanta ComRes, shows 48 percent of Scots saying No to independence and just 45 percent saying Yes, which would shake out as a 52/48 victory for the UK if undecideds are removed.

Re: Another Blow for Scottish Independence

As I read it She wishes to hold a referendum by 2024 with or without the permission of Westminster. The last country to try this was the Spanish Seperatists around Barcelona. They held their referendum and announced their Government with the leaders and ministers. Madrid refused to accept this and sent in the Police and the Army. The leaders were arrested and sentenced to prison terms.
Has the SNP leader chosen her Gaol yet?

The nationalists won't listen.

More people voted to be part of the UK.

Re: Another Blow for Scottish Independence

I'm all in favour of a referendum to determine the future of Scotland but I believe the question should be asked across the whole of the UK, I'm pretty sure it would yield a resounding YES! in favour.

Especially if it was a very hard independence with a very hard border, best of all armed, absolutely NO subsidies of any form, and Scotland's part of the UK national debt to be repaid, and absolutely NO shared currency involved.

And we'll take back Faslane and Fylingdales plus any other military installations. Plus cancel any naval shipbuilding contracts that might be current at the time.

Oh, of course it is . What's the name of the radar place on the east coast of Scotland with an RAF base attached to it? A ha! I've just remembered - RAF Lossiemouth.

Re: Another Blow for Scottish Independence

As a Scot, I wish she would stop banging on about independence. I think it would be the worst idea ever, and I would never vote for it. For her (Nicola Sturgeon) she seems to think that gaining independence would be the dream....no it would not, I can assure her. It would be the start of Scotland becoming like Northern Ireland with regard to sectarian violence. Plus there is no future plans, no indication of where the money to finance in independent Scotland would come from. She just wants Independence on her record, and she will regret it. I didn't vote for it before, and I will not vote for it again.
