Scottish Independence?

Can't quite follow this nonesense about Scottish Independence, that Brown and Alexander have got themselves into a muddle over? :? The 1707 Act of Union, agreed by the English and Scots Parliaments, and confirmed by the British (UK) Parliament; would have to be repealed by the UK Parliament, in order for Scotland to be given their Independence - which clearly won't happen. :shock: So what's the problem? :roll: Assuming the Scots wanted a referendum, what majority would be required for such a major constitutional change? :? At least a two-thirds majority would normally be expected - so again that won't happen. :roll: So although Alex Salmond seems to be doing a great job, the idea of Independence is clearly a non-starter - we can forget about. :wink:

They only want independance so they can grab all the Euro handouts that the likes of Ireland and Greece got their hands on. It would be a no win for England because we would still be funding them anyway!!

Notice your boss Wavy Davy, has been to Scotland, promising to scrap the Barnet Formula governing the allocation of Government Grants to Local Councils. :? He is considering a "needs based" formula, which should provide Scotland with even more hand-outs than they currently receive. :roll: A case of Saul's vision on the road to Damascus, or just a cheap cynical attempt to start getting Tories elected north of the border?! :wink:

Tongue in cheek or not, citing Rangers fans as justification for separating from Scotland are beneath a true Tory and indeed the whole discussion proves you fellas are no better or worse than Unionists and Nationalists over here. This will particularly be a source of irritation as I am sure you always like to think you are so much better. As if! :wink::P

 

And judging all the Scots by a minority of Rangers fans, tsk tsk tsk
