Re: Will Scotland Leave the UK?

The snp don't bother themselves with facts or reality they are in a little dreamworld where them saying things will magically make them happen if the scottish people ever vote for independence. Despite the frustration that many south of the border have with this issue by and large there is a lot of respect towards scotland from the other members of the union and that is more then they will ever get off the EU if they do go independent. Theresa May has done the right thing in not agreeing to a referendum on the snp's timetable as it will give the Scottish people a chance to voice their opinion in an election first and if an snp majority is returned then give them the vote again.

At the very least though it should be conditional that if the vote is to remain in the UK there will be no more votes for a set period we cannot have this popping up anytime some loon in the snp thinks they can win.

The excessive funding that Scotland receives started long before any devolved parliament. The Barnett formula was from 1978 and even it's predecessor, the 1888 Goschen formula was over-generous.

A crucial difference: the SNP governs in Scotland, Plaid Cymru does not in Wales and probably never will.

The point was to show, for Mr K's benefit (his Welsh blood reference), how confused Leanne Wood & Plaid Cymru are over Brexit and the single market.

Understood. My comment was just a bit of info for anyone who might not know that Nationalism in Wales is less relevant and Wales voted to leave the EU; both are fundamental differences to Scotland.
Leanne Wood and Plaid do not represent the majority view in Wales.

My Granddad was Scottish, I was just saying if the vote to leave the UK they must told those titles are now honorary.
