Scotland prepare to leave the UK

And now Scotland prepare to leave the UK.

'Nicola Sturgeon has said the Scottish government will seek to enter into *immediate discussions* with Brussels to “protect Scotland’s place in the EU” in the wake of the Brexit vote.'

Remember the phrase 'Brexit: be careful what you wish for'?

Has it struck you you've lost yet? And that we've all lost?

And Ireland left the UK in 1921. I'm just pleased the Scots can leave if they want to without having to fight a war for their independence. Never a good idea to make people stay in a state or superstate they don't agree with, Zebedee.

Sturgeon can't keep bringing out the same old threats time after time when she can't get her own way.
But if you must go then Scotland is a free country but will need a referendum first and I think project fear is never going to work again is it. So good luck with that.

Project Fear turned out to be 'Project Spot On' whereas the Leave campaign has been revealed as 'Project Lies'.

No one is forcing Scotland to stay in the UK Clifford and no-one forced us to stay in the EU so your meaning has missed me. I personally think Scotland should leave.

As far as I'm concerned Scotland can f*×# off if they want. They won't be missed. Least of all Sturgeon and her continual whining. Good riddance.

Of course they are I very much wanted the Union to be given a last try but at this stage who on earth can blame them. They will wait until the cuts this madness cause start to bite and they will say , why should we stay with this absurd poor inward looking country ? Its all too easy for the SNP
The end of the Union was always part of the Brexit choice and one of the many things that I find so upsetting what I dread is the resumption of Irish troubles and the onset of recession both of which I am certain we will get
How could they ?

If you love them let free. Seriously, I think those Scots who resent the English ( a minority) will be happier without us and everyone else was fine anyway. I can't imagine them putting in border control though.

Of all the lies told by the leave side the most absurd was perhaps that we could rely on the good will of the members . Today the founding members have told us they will launch a legal challenge to our right to delay invoking article 52 at which time the two year clock will start ticking
The fact is that our government does not have legal expertise to extricate us form this without unimaginable cost and as we know a global new trade deal could take a decade not two years .
The inability to trade that is going to result will hit this country like bomb and I hardly dare start to think about the damage .
This is partly drawn of frustration and contempt for this country and partly because we cannot be allowed to impoverish the rest of Europe by our stupidity . Today our credit rating has been lost
This damage will go on and on
The many ill informed people who brought about this calamity are largely not to be blamed they did not ask to be asked . The UKIP loons who have their hobby horse are also sincere .

The politicians who lied to ordinary people and targeted their worst emotions are never to be forgiven
Maria Caulfield must pay for this

I was in favour of Scotland leaving last time they voted on it and I am glad they'll have another chance to make the right decision now. Once we stop spending so much money on propping up the alcoholic lump of barely inhabitable rock on the end of the island we might have enough cash in England to keep the buses running.

Let's hope your right. The Scots do nothing but moan about how much of a bad deal they get, despite having their own national parliament (unlike England) and despite getting far more spent on them per head via the Barnett formula. They have it better than any other British nation but they continue to moan and be hostile towards England.
As for person on here who said about the remainers being 'project spot on', I have a question for you: Have you started building an adequate shelter for you and your family to be safe once the bombs start dropping? World War III is around the corner now, Dave warned us!

After speaking to quite a few Scotsman recently I get the impression that they dont care much for Nicola Sturgeon, in fact they think she is just power crazy and could lead the Scots up the swanee. They reckon that the majority of Scots don't want independence.

If the Scots dont like Nicola Sturgeon how come a majority voted her in?
Over 40% of Scots voted to leave the UK in the last referendum. It's hard to see that number reducing now England has voted to leave the EU (and Scotland voted to stay).

The Scots would do well to wait and see what happens. The EU is by no means a safe haven.
