I don't see them taking their hand out of our pocket any time soon.

Yesterday I listened to a radio interview with some Scottish nats and an American or Canadian.
Cue the usual tripe from the nats about NI getting special treatment and the Scots getting dragged out of Europe against their will. Moaning and moaning about England, Westminster, Boris..... Then the North American asked the question of what the English get out of our union. It didn't get answered. I'm all for our union and it has been fair, with devolution. I've no axe to grind with any of the union nations or people but the deceitful nats can fk right off.

The main reason why they are so noisy is because south of the border they have no representation and we see no Scottish TV.

Their support in Scotland is not as far or wide as their rattle would suggest. Their problem is minor parties splitting the vote and allowing in these racist anti-English gobstes. As for that bloater standing up in HoC telling us all we are wrong.... Their failure to grasp the stupidity of insisting on independence from UK but eager to be dominated by EU tells you all you need to know about the SNP.

Together with their having to re-join the EU as a very minor independent country with no capital to give them and having the euro foisted on them is somehow ignored. They'll find much shallower pockets in Brussels. An absolute tragedy for the people.

This.

If there is to be another referendum we should get to vote on whether we want to keep on subsidising them. Why should they alone make the decision?

If the whole of the UK got to vote, I suspect most of us would be glad to be shot of the Scots and their whining.

I’ve said often enough the SNPs biggest mistake is not having a whole UK vote on Independence

They’d be ooot before they could get their coat smile

They don't want to be ruled by London, but want to be ruled by Brussels (if they get back in). Jeanette Krankie is clinically insane.

Just to be clear here, don't get 'SNP' and 'Scotland' mixed up. One is a bunch of dictating s the other a very nice place with lots of character.

Not really bothered tbh.

If they want to leave, crack on.

All makes years of Tory rule in England more likely.

You’re right, but the latter do keep voting for the former in very strong numbers.

If Boris gets his vote through... I think it's the end of an independent Scotland in the short term.

They need subsidies. Leave the union within the EU they can probably look to the EU as it will be easier for them to stay in the EU. Leave the Union outside of the EU I suspect it will be harder for them to get in & who pays the bills then??

Scotland first but Northern Ireland won’t be far behind. It is somewhat ironic that the Conservative & Unionist party has done more for the cause of Irish nationalism than anyone else in recent years.

Those Scots really are tightarses and the bowlheaded midget it just a special little thing with a miniscule brain. The UK would be better off without their crap.

Is NI viable as a go alone country, does the republic need or want a troublesome Ulster in a united Ireland ?

If you think Scotland is subsidised, Christ, take a look at the figures for NI.

A humungous 50% of NI workers are public sector employees.

Middle class catholics do rather well out of being in the UK thank you very much, but don't
broadcast it too much, they still want to be seen as the persecuted minority.
