Are you seriously suggestig that after independence the UK will put up tariff barriers against it's biggest trading partner outside of the eu? all the arguments that brextiteers use to kid themselves that the EU will still trade with the UK without those trade barriers equally apply to any UK/scotland split. Much of the trade with england is actually through trade going on to the EU although the actual figureres are carefully ignored. I just passed a spanish lorry which having delivered it's load of vegetable to the lidl depot was on it's way to the neighbouring distillery to pickup a load of whisky for spanish supermarkets just along the road from that is a scottish company selling medical equipment to the USA and the rest of the world the list goes on and on you really think we wouldn't be able to expand our trade with europe and the rest of the world on our own without the handicap of a westminster government getting in the way? You need us arguable it's more amnd more a question of do we need you.

How is that any different from the purely racist deeply felt hated of ukip supporters and the like for any kind of foreigners and those xenopphobic deniers of history that hark back to a non existent past when the rest of the world danced to a tune set by the british empire and inspired by the desire to put two fingers up to our biggest trading partners havinmg been taken in by the nonsense spouted by ukip and the daily mail? You all just voted for a fascist giovernment that wants to undo that socialist bane of their lives called the nhs and create a low wage tax haven on the arse end of europe. Do you really have to ask why scottish independence and another referendum is back on the table?The elephant in the room I can't ignore when this matter comes up is the genuine, purely racist and deeply felt hatred of a sizeable minority of Scots for the English. All of us. It's different from gmc enjoying taking the mickey, it's visceral.
