    I know you do, which makes your views even more laughable

    You know her Granny is from Ryhope, right?

    That's absolutely ridiculous. She's not anti-English.
    She's anti-Whitehall.
    She's against decisions being made about her country in another country by other people who don't live in that country without consulting her country!

    Shame she isn't against her country being subsidised by other people who don't live in her country

    I don't live in the north east, but I'd want to see that it doesn't struggle.

    Shames she's not against other countries paying for her largesse, what's that Scottish deficit running at which ultimately the rest of the uk will have to pay?

    "GERS (Government Expenditure and Revenues, Scotland) shows an increased government deficit for Scotland. According to GERS, Scotland had a deficit in 2015/16 of £14.8bn (9.5 per cent of its GDP). For the UK, the deficit was £75.3bn (four per cent of GDP)."

    Before long there will be the sound of a lot of SNP arses hitting the floor when a lot vanity spending is hit on the head. I think free prescriptions and university tuition fees will be the first to go, unless they can increase revenue from somewhere. That seems unlikely given the unwillingness of oil companies to develop fields at the moment. I suspect they wish for a deal to stay in the EU outside of the UK and be propped up. I also suspect the EU will tell them to fuck off.

    I doubt it. Scotland didn't want to leave the EU. They were taken out against their will, so I suspect they'll let them back in.
    How that will work I'm not sure but it all depends on whether Scotland get a referendum

    The EU love sponging states who are behind the times, they will welcome the scotch with open arms

    EU is already anchored down economically by the irresponsible economies of a few of our mediterranean cousins. I can't imagine France and Germany welcoming them with open arms unless they address their deficit first. Just my opinion of course.

    Is that before or after the eu slap eyewatering austerity on them? They'll make the Greek debt look like chicken feed if they ever leave the uk
     
  14. You need to do some research

    I'm pro Sunderland too, unlike you

    And yet she wants to throw Scotland back into the EU where people on another continent will be making their decisions without consulting Scotland? :lol:

    You didn't think this through, did you.

    They were happy being in the EU, they're not happy being told what to do by Whitehall. I think that's pretty straightforward.

    Correction: Nicola Sturgeon was happy being in the EU and doesn't like Whitehall.There's a difference.

    In 2014, 54% wanted to stay British. Since then Scotland has been given even more say in their own affairs. Devolution is almost complete.

    Last year the majority of Scots voted to remain. Why should they be ignored?

    Not ignored as such, but the referendum was UK wide so, what Scotland or London want locally doesn’t really matter in that context.

    Having said that, they got the answer right at both referendums.

    Because they'd already voted to stay in the uk and be a part of it going forward together.

    Now if the snp want to run another referendum, leave the uk then try their arm at begging to get back into the eu let them go for it but there is absolutely no appetite for trying for one by the snp, or wee Jimmy. ..wonder why that is?
