    So as well getting their independence you’re going to give them land as well, very generous.

    Tip of the iceberg, if Brexit precipitates the collapse of the EU old border disputes will soon start up again. Next step shooting war.

    The last Indyref cost 16 million quid to hold ..If Scotland wants another so badly ….should it be that those keen on it….. be required to reach into their pockets and cover the cost of it in total themselves ….. And hold it when the Indy account has it all in the bank …Or do they expect another 16 million…… plus today no doubt …to be stumped up by all the UK tax payers ……and do it every three or four years if they feel the need to make a habit of it .? Any guess what a Scotland to join The EU in a few years time wil cost the Scots on the day ? Expensive it will be .

    <hr />

    Still a fraction of the cost of Brexit though. About 3 quid per person in Scotland, but then perhaps they could use the money to save the NHS instead, 16 million would last at least 3 hours.

    <hr />

    Yes ….but should …every person …be made to pay for it .when its only the SNP that is wanting it ……Those who want it …pays for it …seems about right to me …….start passing the hat round in their ranks

    <hr />

    “Those who want it pay for it”

    Could we have the same with Brexit please?

    They have always been a troublesome bunch …….I remember well many years ago …some Scottish Regiments that could not control their men when the drink was in them . Some town councils asked the Army not to post them to their towns such was their reputation . They should do well in Brussels ” fighting ” or “begging ” for their share of the handouts that Germany will or will not decide to give them .

    SNP’s man in Brussels . Spain was mentioned blocking a move to join the EU . That.s not all IMO Will France join in on a block with Spain because of the Basque demands for their own country including a chunk of France That would bring along Brittany wanting the same … As for the Baltic states full of Russian speakers … who would want to bring them into the mix ?

    Sturgeon would not need to offer immediate EU membership, membership of EFTA with a similar deal to the deal Norway has with the EU would probably be enough to win a referendum should the alternative be hard Brexit.

    Scotland could then offer itself as home to businesses in England and Wales who find themselves disadvantaged by increased tariffs and regulation who want to continue trading with the EU under similar circumstances to those they currently have.

    Give them all plastic bagpipes and plastic sporrans (note double rr), then send them to manifest in sproutland.

    Scotland could then offer itself as home to businesses in England and Wales who find themselves disadvantaged by increased tariffs and regulation who want to continue trading with the EU under similar circumstances to those they currently have.

    They’d be competing with Ireland as the only other English-speaking member of the EU and with substantially lower corporation tax.  Estonia are already offering free epassports to foreign firms and staff at international HQs in London have been told to brush up on their German which will be handy when they are house-hunting in Frankfurt.

    Remaining in the UK would mean being cut off from competing with anyone for EU trade though.

    The French have nominated a M. Maginot.

    We would need to make sure he has measured correctly, though.
