Scotland And Independence.

Theresa May made a good speech. It was the SNP MP who was shooting his gob off after she politely gave way to him. 

It might have been a 'good speech', but judging from your preceding post, it was wholly useless: the UK is leaving the EU by 31 January 2020, including therefore Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

 

So Scotland will already "not be a member of the EU", even before it should declare independence after after an IndyRef2 in late 2020 or 2021 :roll:

 

Some critical thinking often helps to cut through politicians' <removed> ...erm, 'rethoric'.

If Scotland ever voted to leave the UK, I cannot help thinking it would be an emotional decision. Often void of logic, and blind at the time of voting in respect of the consequences of such a decision.

Very well, just continue to ignore the fact that Theresa May wasn't  shooting her gob off as you falsely claimed  and was merely giving the SNP a reality check that they won't become a member of the EU, if they ever do become an independent country.

What are the benefits/advantages for the Scottish people, assuming a second vote resulting in leaving?

What decisions would you say they are not happy with, regarding the current situation?

Their perception that somehow they are 'owned` by the English. 

 

Walk into certain pubs & bars in Glasgow & Edinburgh & you' ll always find someone who truly hates the English & has never forgiven us for Culloden. 

 

Perversely, go to any Old Firm game & you'll never see so many Union & English flags being flown. 

 

At the end of the day, the SNP's only raison d'etre is the establishment of an independent nation..

Tonnes, the SNP are a progressive party and the tories really aren’t.

Would they be happy to lose the income they get under the Barnett formula I wonder?

The saying- "cutting off your nose to spite your face" comes to mind . There will follow "much grinding and gnashing of teeth".

That sounds familiar - perhaps that's the point you're making?
