    Looks like it might just be the United Kingdom Of England after all.

    While everyone’s at it, Yorkshire also has a strong case.

    A population of 5.3 million which is larger than Scotland; (and no debt)

    A GDP double that of Wales;

    A larger population than eight EU countries.

    Dunno how we’d enforce a border around Bradford, though.

    For the isolationist minded Brexiteers, maybe Elon Musk has a solution, for those who can afford it (Boris, Haggie May, Farage et al)

    Interesting that these guys are fast tracking getting some human life off this planet before the real war to end all wars kicks off. Brian Cox on the radio today  seemed to be  pointing at Brexit being part of, if not the start of the chain reaction. Just more so called project fear or our nightmares coming true.

    Disregarding any consideration for the rest of Britain, Sturgeon has deliberately decided to pursue her obsession for a second independence referendum at the most critical time. This will create a massive distraction, when our government should be devoting all its energy in securing the best possible deal for all of us after article 50 has been triggered.

    Westminster will feel forced, sooner or later, to allow a fresh vote but if that still results in Scotland voting to remain in the U.K. will the SNP ever give up? Surely they should then be forced to accept a second no as final and binding for at least the next fifty years.

    So Sturgeon is a massive distraction?  No, the real distraction is Brexit.  That decision will affect Scotland more than any Scottish decision could affect the UK.  Why is everything so narrowly Anglo-centric?

    Brexit is not a distraction. Like it or not, it’s a reality.

    Why is everything so narrowly Anglo-centric?

    Because, broadly speaking, 84% of the population of the UK live in England.

    Well then, why should it worry if the remain population decide their needs are better served elsewhere? Relationships are fragile things. If England may eventually have to choose between leaving the EU or dismantling the union.

    Wales would need to stay in the EU so the workforce can migrate freely to Eastern Europe to improve their lot.

    Sturgeon has deliberately decided to pursue her obsession for a second independence referendum at the most critical time.

    That’s what’s known as “strategy” and throughout history has been celebrated regularly as a wise move in the evolution of a state. :good:

    Furthermore she has never tried to hide the fact that this is her goal, unlike TM who has made a miraculous conversion from remain to leave. The fact that the UK government and electorate have handed independence to Scotland on a plate is whose fault exactly?

    Good luck to the Scots if they abandon the rest of the ‘lemmings’ and retire from the cliff edge, it would be good too to see a peaceful reunification of Ireland, which due to Brexit, is no longer so unlikely to happen
