    A remarkably interesting position for the Scots. The EU (well Brussels to be more exact) doesn’t really want them as an ‘independent entity within the EU’ post Brexit. And now, given Catalonia’s rough treatment we have more Scots saying ‘Independence – outside of the EU’ (which is what Catalonia wants, Switzerland has, and Nicola does not want). The average Jock meanwhile recognises that ‘independence’ within the EU or out of it is going to mean massive economic hardship for a country of Net benefit takers who already have their own Parliament. Nicola’s dream of a Euro currency waving Scotland post Brexit is now looking like a minority pipe dream.

    Talking of second referendum, is the language of losers, and Nicola Sturgeon knows this well. Personally I think the SNP has had its day, – It will never fully disappear, due to a ‘William Wallace’ faction in Scotland. (I am not a Scot, but I understand that feeling).
    The nonsense in Spain with Catalonia, and the EU’s comments, have done more to change the mind of remain voters, than all the blather given out by the anti-democratic time wasters. We all now see what the politics of the EU are, and thankfully more than a million majority gave UK/GB a vote to leave.
    Corbyn’s Party want to spend what we don’t have, and to cling to membership of EU, post article 50. That way we have no say in the club, and pay for that privilege ! Maggie May’s Government lacks the ability to open world trade deals, talks about paying vast sums of our money to the EU. and lacks the guts to leave. The smaller Parties want much the same.
    In this Nation, that we think of as a Democracy, is it not plain that one Party, UKIP, who want us out and clear with no payment made, is not represented in the Commons. Yet as we know, this Nation is a Democracy !?! A change to vote system, from FPTP to PR is required, and yet the old Parties will fight tooth and nail against such change. One could almost draw from that, the view that Democracy is not wanted here. Surely not ! ! !

      Good comments Mike. Don’t forget that the UK voted against PR in 2010, though I sensed as a campaigner at the time that the big parties were doing a project fear on the whole debate which at that time the public may not have been able to see through. The mood might be quite different today.
