England’s fine because it already has its ties firmly established, furthermore, it’s far more self-sustaining than an independent Scotland would be, so your argument is circular and has merely justified my point. By all means, keep RBS and Scotland’s alcohol problems, but don’t come crying to England when it costs more than Scotland can afford to pay.
Scotland will still be part of Britain (since Britain is the Island) but not in a political sense. Scotland, Wales, England, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland should just go together and start a economical union and leave the European Union. They should divide the legislative, financial and political administration in all countries and perhaps then they will enjoy a real freedom!
England can’t keep its head above water in industry. The UK imports most of its food. By your definition, England/UK should be part of Germany.

007. The number of time Connery has visited Scotland.
Virtually every country is more dependent on overseas markets than being self sustained? The SNP haven’t published it because if Scotland goes independent, the metaphorical economic shit will hit the fan; they’ll just land themselves in a bottomless pit that they can’t get out of – they can’t sustain themselves in this economic climate. It’s a nice proposal for Scotland to go independent, but in practice it doesn’t work. The UK as it stands is more self sustaining than an independent Scotland.
UK industry is heavily dependendent on Overseas markets . How you can say Scotland could not keep it head above water is amazing because the SNP have not published how Scotland will support itself financialy but when they do we will all know and this will help us Scots to make an informed decision. I presume you are just randomly spouting what you think you know because nobody within Scotland knows the business plan so far, but we have two years to make up our mind and thats plenty.
A majority of the UK’s industry comes from England, it is doubtful that Scotland would be able to keep its head above the water if it went independent, especially given RBS debt along with with the unemployment and alcohol problems that it has, I’m half Scottish and half English, but live in England and I hate Westminster. I would be all for Scottish independence if it benefited the Scottish more than it cost them, but in practice it just doesn’t for them..
LOL Sean Connery! I’ve seen better acting in a school nativity play. Is this the same Sean Connery that lives on the bonny bonny banks of Lake Geneva and beats up his wife like a good Scotchman? Or flies into Scotland now and then, has a tantrum and says Scotland is the greatest place ever before fucking off back to Switzerland to live alongside the arms dealers and bankers. C***!
Oh, you’re English, living in America and calling me a Yank. I’m glad to hear you’re leaving and going back to England. Good riddance. You are just a frustrated, jealous because you are not a real man like a Scotsman, twat. And by the way, I’m a woman so I’m not sure the jock comment was appropriate.
Well, since you live in the US, then you’re a yank as well. And, what the hell is a plastic jock?

REMEMBER WHEN IT COMES TO DEMOCRACY “BRITANNIA WAIVES THE RULES
if they don’t vote for it, then let them go anyway? Surely that’s not democratic either lol.
But you’re right that it’s wrong for Scottish MPs to have a vote on purely English matters. It’s called the West Lothian question, and there are much cheaper and simpler ways of solving it than independence.
When I posted my earlier message everyone I had spoken to was in favour of Scottish independence. It is not democratic that they can vote on English affairs and we can’t vote on Scottish affairs. If they vote for it then let them go. If they don’t vote for it then let them go anyway.
You’ve obviously not been speaking to many people about it. I also live in the South of England and haven’t met a single person that wants it to happen.
Literally EVERY person I have asked here in the South of England is keen on Scottish independence. We want freedom from Scottish rule. Every poll has shown that more English want Scottish independence than Scottish do.
