Her who's name I can't mention has now demanded a 2nd Referendum on Independence. Right before Brexit comes to fruition,is this taking the piss or what ?? Does the Nameless one think like her predecessor think our fellow citizens North of the border are stupid to vote to leave the United Kingdom as we get back control from Brussels just to give it back to unelected idiots who will screw them . Do she think she's going to get the fishing grounds back ,or that they can afford the EU monies that will demanded by Brussels,or that the rest of the United Kingdom will bale them out due to their mismanagement of Scotland ( as now) let alone lose thousands of jobs that will travel south mmmmm me thinks "tunnel vision " is great if you have a great plan but shouting it's Westminster fault won't work a couple of days after they go tits up ,why from what I hear ,read ,see ,the nameless one has no plan other than " Independence " or am I wrong???

Bob, the nameless one as you've described her is a political chancer. If it hadn't been Brexit it would have been something else. There is no appetite for a second referendum up here. In fact, the Scots are suffering from referendum fatigue! Support for the Nazis is falling. The education system is dire, Transport grim, Police Scotland and the Scottish National Health service are on their knees due to underfunding. The police are now cutting back on recruitment due to the underfunding. Sturgeon is totally out of control and there is no one in the SNP who has the balls to tell her enough is enough. They're all glove puppets with her hand up their backsides telling them what to do. I believe she's backed herself into a corner and can't get out. Personally, although I'm pissed of with her posturing, and the fact that this will cost another £10 million, Lets call the referendum when TM says we can, she'll lose and should then fall on her sword! But I bet you she'll say after the Brexit deal is done that TM bent over to give Scotland what was could for them. She's an arch manipulator! Here in Berwickshire, she'll get blown out of the water. Is this ok for a rant?

It's really good to get an insider insight into the whole Scottish perspective on these things Alfie. The BBC reporting seems really anti Government and Laura Kuessenberg, their main political journalist, seems to be a SNP supporter herself. Sturgeon seems hell bent on sacrificing the interests of Scotland on the altar of self  fulfilment, her obsession with independence is alarmingly nationalist and she comes across as almost demonic in her anti Westminster rants. I do believe TM should allow another independence vote after the Brexit deal is concluded. Not to call Sturgeons bluff will only play into the hands of the minority nationalists and perpetuate the threats, the posturing and the rhetoric. TM should dictate to Sturgeon when she will allow the referendum to take place and then close the book on it until that time approaches.

WNS (aka "Krankie") has been, since the age of 15, utterly obsessed with Scotland becoming independent from the rest of the UK, her tunnel vision being such that she's prepared to sacrifice everything to see her dream fulfilled. Her latest "excuse" for calling Indy2 is that TM didn't offer Scotland a separate deal to remain in the Single Market - why the hell should Westminster grant Scotland a different deal to the rest of the UK ? I reckon TM is handling the situation well, not giving an inch to the mealy mouthed witch over the Border, who really, should be summoned to the Tower for treason ! We need UNITY  right now, going into "battle" with the EU over getting the best deal for the UK, and not having to be concerned about being stabbed in the back by Wee Nicola Sturgeon - she is a divisive force, and if / when she's granted Indy2, she will surely be finished as a politician if the SNP loses the vote, and if she wins, I believe it won't be long afterwards that she'll be going cap in hand to her friends in the EU (if accepted back in) for a bail-out. Does she realise too, that an independent Scotland will have to apply for NATO membership (NATO's Gen Sec has already stated they will have to), meaning 2% of Scotland's GPD will be payable, something I'm sure Trump will insist upon !

Hi everyone, I have some very important and serious news. Yesterday, and I should state that I don't read all these newspapers! I read this in the on-line daily Mail. A report by a FEMALE reporter. She described Nicola Sturgeon repeatedly that Nicola Sturgeon was the " Ginger dwarf from the north" GDFTN! This has caused much concerns from the Association of Dwarfs in Scotland, "ADS" Also, the group of Ginger haired people in Scotland have lodged a complaint with the Press Complaints Authority. Both these groups do not want to be associated with Gnasher Sturgeon.  Seriously, apart from this, the press in Scotland are hammering her over the announcements re she doesn't now want to join the EU. This is due to the fact that Scotland will not be able to jump any queue in joining. If she gets her way and I doubt it. (She's treating the Scots as fools who will follow her down this road) It would appear that there was a meeting in January with Sturgeon and senior members of the SNP, where a financial expert told them that if Scotland was to become independent, with the state of the economy in Scotland it would cause high inflation, high taxation and would take 10 - 15 years to recover. Obviously this advice was ignored! Everything is starting to unravel for her. No way out and she's now in the last chance saloon. Hence the personal attacks on TM. I believe she's met her match here. TM is no David Cameron.

So Sturgeon is now abandoning the EU route following their recent slap down of her and evidence of a mounting Scottish apathy towards it as an institution. As an aside she glosses over the fact Scotland would not meet the fiscal entry requirements of the EU even were it allowed to queue jump and not be vetoed by Spain. And that sums up the toxic dwarf's whole ideology, tell half truths, base the call for a second referendum on lies and rely on a minority nationalist following and then hope the rest will follow suit. They won't! The majority of Scots want stability, they want their public services sorted, their education system improved from being rock bottom in European charts, they know that Scotland's deficit is almost 3 times that of  England's in relative terms and they know they receive £9 billion pa extra from treasury coffers. Add in their lower life expectancy than countries far less well developed and the need for a First Minister who puts the welfare of his/her country before personal ambitions and a vainglorious hunt for a place in the history books. I think Sturgeon is a danger to the future of Scotland , simple as that.

Watching Question time last night there was a SNP ,MP on the panel who defended her boss with the usual waffle. The " once in a generation " vote was top of the agenda with the Conservative member ,as if in Scottish life a generation was only 3 years ,he knew the Scots had a shorter life span than the rest of the UK ,but 3 years is a bit political. Reading into the members of the public from Bognor and the way they reacted to pro-Brexit answers and Independence for Scotland ,the fish that waffles is on a sticky wicket . Yes if Scotland wants to go it alone and be a sovereign nation with all that entails,some of the points were they would wait  at least 10 years before they got into the EU ( that's if it's still around) . Their biggest market for exports is south of the border ,so would they be able to trade without Tarrifs. Their currency,well they couldn't use the English pound and they do not qualify for the euro ,as they have a worst deficit than Greece. Now the nameless one has swam into a corner hoping the uncertainty of the Brexit deal is enough to swing her independence, TM is also a canny lass with Europe knowing they need us more than we need them . Now the nameless one should have relized by now that Scotland is in the same boat ,together ( UK) we are great ,but it's a big bad world out there on your own with no one to hold your hand .

also watched Question time last night and initially thought that the SNP woman was better suited than wee nic, then someone in the audience asked what currency would they use. the beginnings of an almighty stutter/stammer then gave the game away, in that it was under discussion. Watched politics show with Andrew Neil today and watched him almost skewer SNP deputy leader with the same question, it is under discussion  at the moment and I will not answer that question, also would not give an answer to whether the referendum should be put back till after Brexit , all that he would say is that it is not about the referendum, it is about Scotland being dragged out of the EU against their will. It would seem to me that they have been told the party line must always come back to that, regardless of the fact that when UK comes out Scotland as part of the UK also comes out.  Their rhetoric is an attempt to try to overshadow their abysmal performance in actual governance. The Tory MEP on the same programme came out with fact that when the SNP lose a vote in the Scottish parliament and they have lost a quite a few they just ignore the result, but when they win a vote it is trumpeted out, he also though is committed to an Independence vote but after Brexit. The Scots are a canny race and I cannot see them biting their nose off to spite their face.
