    Now that generation has seen the error of their ways.

    Only a fool would stay in the EU as it stands.
    The EU needs a fresh start and unfortunately the British have to be the bearer of bad news and the catalyst for a rebirth.

    Sorry I put that badly. It should have been that we were promised a referendum many times since the initial one in '76. But it eventually took another 40 odd years to get another.

    That may be but they still want to remain in the UK. May be we need to give Scotland a second referendum asking 'leave the UK or leave the EU. You can't have it both ways.

    The SNP is about giving two fingers to the English and any SNP minister that delivers independence will go down in Scottish folklore more than Robert the Bruce.
    An independend Scotland will never happen , oil is rock bottom.
    Alternative energy is the future, besides decommissioning North Sea oil would bankrupt Scotland.
    THE SNP carn't be happy being part of the UK, whereas most of the population are.
    No tuition fees ,the Barnet formilae. ...etc
    I've even considered moving to Scotland myself for the perks,house prices and beautiful scenery.

    House prices are not cheap, especially in desirable areas, I generally have a gander on Zoopla once a month. Edinburgh or anywhere in commuter distance will cost a small fortune. Perth is decent value but start getting up into the highlands and not many properties on the market and again not cheap.

    Scotland decisively rejected brexit in this election, which is the matter under discussion, you deeply discontented piece of pungent shit with a hilariously gay haircut.

    By the way, I’ve paid my own way for over 30 years unlike you, you sponging, chinless wanker.

    63% voted remain in the referendum. The opposition to BREXIT has only hardened.

    Respectfully, do you actually believe this to be true?

    (or, are you just talking about 63 percent of the SNP vote?)

    Paid your own way? You spend your time in a condo in the sandpit and a few months a year in a shoebox in Thailand, you pay no tax, contribute nothing hence a low life parasite. Who have I ever sponged off, never had a handout in my life.

    The opposition to Brexit hasn't hardened. You are just as clueless about Scotland as you are about everything else you comment on. The Scots are just voting for parties who are offering another vote for the sole reason it will give legitimacy for another indy ref should another referendum on Brexit take place.

    Tory leadership contest: Jeremy Hunt warns against no-deal Brexit 'suicide'
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-48428761

    Tory leadership candidate Jeremy Hunt has warned that his party will be committing "political suicide" if it tries to push through a no-deal Brexit.

    The foreign secretary is one of 10 people seeking to replace Theresa May.

    Michael Gove has begun his pitch by pledging to allow EU nationals in the UK at the time of the referendum to apply for citizenship free of charge.

    The Brexit-supporting environment secretary will make an "open and generous" offer, sources said.

    A Tory rival, International Development Secretary Rory Stewart, is promising a "listening exercise" on Brexit.

    Scotland voted by 62 to 38 percent to remain in the EU in the UK-wide ballot.
    https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/fe...160659170.html




    The "Leave" side won the June 2016 referendum with 52% of the vote. In Scotland, 62% of votes were to "Remain" in the EU, with a majority of voters in every local authority area.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prop...nce_referendum

    The outcome of the referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union was, of course, very different in Scotland than in England and Wales. North of the border 62% voted to Remain while 38% backed Leave. In the rest of Great Britain, in contrast, only 47% voted to Remain, while 53% supported Leave.

    Is that clear enough for you, betty? I've left out the BBC as you consider it akin to Pravda...

    I'm sure that guy is actually Paul Whitehouse in a role as a simple-minded nonentity on 'The Fast Show'.

    LONDON (Reuters) - Fallout from Brexit has helped New York overtake London to become the world’s pre-eminent financial center, a survey of financial executives by Duff & Phelps showed on Tuesday.
    The consultants said their annual Global Regulatory Outlook survey contacted 180 executives in asset management, private equity, hedge funds, banking and brokerage.


    They were asked where they think the top financial center is located. More than 60% of responses were from Britain and the United States, with the rest mainly from Hong Kong, Ireland, Singapore and Luxembourg.

    Just over half of respondents now see New York as the world’s top financial center, up 10% from 2018, while 36% see London as the leader, down 17% from last year.


    “Last year, Brexit cast a shadow of uncertainty over the United Kingdom’s economy; it has now escalated to a full-blown crisis,” Duff & Phelps said.

    “Looking ahead, however, globalization’s diffusion of influence begins to be apparent: 12% of respondents expect Hong Kong to be the world’s preeminent financial center five years from now.”


    British government ministers said last week that the UK financial sector would emerge stronger from Brexit.

    Duff & Phelps said Dublin, Frankfurt and Luxembourg also fared better this year as the European Union’s financial industry searches for a new hub.

    Britain’s departure from the EU has already been delayed twice, with the next deadline set for Oct. 31, and uncertainty over future bilateral trade relations has prompted banks, asset managers and insurers to set up operations in the bloc to maintain links with customers.

    Right, so you're saying that the number of people who voted on one side 'distorts' the number who voted for the other.

    Christ you're fucking thick. I'll keep it as simple as I can for you, London is pro remain, the rest of England pro leave. London is out of touch with the rest of the country, but having such a large population concentrated in a small area, oh bollox cant be bothered to go on trying to explain something to you that will only go over your head as with most things.
