My take is, she hasn't got to tell me the pros and cons of joining the EU.........she will have to tell the Scots though. I think she'll be challenged on all fronts, those in Scotland who don't want the break up of the Union & those who simply don't want to rejoin the EU as well.Somehow I doubt Nicola will tell us the pros and cons of joining the EU.
I do. No contradiction or dilemma in this for me: if the majority want independence let them have it, and the sooner the better. But not another poll, then another, until they get the right answer.Sounds like a no to me, it will be yours if they do achieve separation , as we have done from the EU, and decline the rump UK's wish that they store their sh1t for them, surely you must wish them well and cheer their endeavor to go their own way, I do . Good luck Caledonia, from Eubonia.
So you are saying that one person, who was not in a position to influence anything, swung the vote? More twisting in the wind, I think. In which case every vote can be overturned by finding anyone who voiced a differing opinion at any time in the past: curious logic.I can see where it gets confusing for Tories and their naive followers
During Indy Ref 1 Johnson told the Scots they must stay with the UK as it was imperative for Scotland to be in the EU........
There is no dilemma, like, the ex remainers, Scotland may become rejoiners. The dilemma is the rabid Brexiteers who would deny Scotland the same opportunity that they fought for, they dont like the idea the Scotland may not like the decision made on Brexit and will take steps to reverse it, indeed, Brexiteers do not like it up em, first Scotland, no more Gt Britain, then Northern Ireland---no more UK. Little England , plus Wales will have no problem coping outside of EuropeI do. No contradiction or dilemma in this for me: if the majority want independence let them have it, and the sooner the better. But not another poll, then another, until they get the right answer.
The comparison to Brexit is not exact - different historical starting point and time frame - but close enough for me to understand their feelings.
I can see the dilemma for Brexit Remainers, how to support Scottish independence but oppose UK divorce from EU: amusing to watch them twisting in the wind.
All these issues need examined and debated then decisions taken- crucially however those decisions must be taken by Scots not the English metropolitan elite with no connection and little or no mandate in Scotland
In the 21st century the constitutional make up of the UK is becoming an international embarrassment with regions ruled by London where they have zero or next to zero mandate
Johnsons threat sadly parroted by the alleged main opposition party- to use constitutional law to force regions to remain in the Disunited Kingdom is as absurd as it is desperate
It would be down to Scotland if they were an EU member to follow EU border rules
It could be a Boris Border---It's a border, dont cross it, unless you have to, then cross it but use the invisible one in the Irish Sea that I categorically swore would not exist, but did happen while i was picking wall paper for me bed warmer.It would be down to Scotland if they were an EU member to follow EU border rules
As Scotland would not have a land border with any other EU state then the same system operating up till recently for the UK could be used, ie Customs borders in France, Spain etc, if there were a " Hadrians" wall border then no Customs required in Europe,--except for the rump GB, all the clues are there if we look. [ Perhaps a good reason for some industries to relocate to the North, smooth access to European markets ]Exactly, so that would be a border, certainly for goods in and out.
Currency wise IMO Scotland would have choices, limited choices but nonetheless choices, border wise surely that wouldn’t be their choice, that would be the EUs.
