    Re: Positive outcome from brexit

    The North Sea Oilfields are running dry. The revenue has been steadily falling. Furthermore, as they continue to dry up the cost of extracting it will increase. Then, along with the world becoming less & less reliant on fossil fuels the cost of oil will drop (Saudi has already been experiencing this drop in revenue).

    The most favourable estimates that there is about enough to last 20 years longer. Ok, what then? Will Scotland then have another Referendum to re-join the UK after 20 years? Independence is for keeps - the long term picture.

    Furthermore, one also has to remember that nowhere near all of the North Sea Oil goes to Scotland, or even the UK, being shared by Norway, Denmark, Germany & the Netherlands. From the SNP's propaganda you would think that Scotland had a monopoly on it.

    It's not all about the oil. Actually we generate about half our energy from renewable sources and would be wprld leaders in tidal power were it not for a hostile westminster government that is agin such things.We are also mworld leaders in things like computer gaming and satellite technology.

    What propoganda are you on about? I suggest you read some of the acrtual snp economic plans rather than what is in the daily mail. The reality is without the dead hand of westminster on our throat we would be in a position to take measures to develop our economy leaving the eu would be devastating and most scots are bright enough to appreciate that.

    This week's leak of the Government analysis of immediate problems anticipated with a hard Brexit are at https://pastebin.com/gwevsbtx and it's only 2600 words, well worth looking at.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...n-yellowhammer discusses it. The dossier, compiled this month, says up to 85% of lorries using the main channel crossings “may not be ready” for French customs and could face queues of two and a half days.

    A senior Whitehall source told the Sunday Times: “This is not Project Fear, this is the most realistic assessment of what the public face with no deal. These are likely, basic, reasonable scenarios – not the worst case.”

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    A year ago but even more relevant now perhaps.

    You have to laugh the libdems have only 14 MP's 5 of them are scots seats- including jo swinson's- and look likely to lose them at the next election they are the fouth largest party in westminster, yet they seem to kid themselves they will recover from that disaster of a coalition. I for one will never vore for them again.

    They hold five of the 129 seats in holyrood but look likely to lose shetland in the by election currently taking place.

    Thye snp are the third largest poltical party in westminster they have more actual paiod up members then the tories do yet you woiuld think they didn't exist or matter in all of this. I think no matter what the oitcopme of brexit scotland will be having another referendum and this time instead of starting from just over 20% in favour it's just under the 50%. To paraphrase wellington an anglo irishman it was a close run thing in 2014.

    One other thing that staggers me about boris - he seems to assume trump will continue to be president and even if he does win it won;t be forever unless he manages to rewrite the constitution and make himself president for life.

    I'm not sure the future beyond crashing out and making a trade deal with America matters, the restraints will be firmly in place.

    The price of a trade deal with America will be exchanging high standards for low in every area of our economy, and the certainty that Britain's foreign policy will be determined entirely by the State Department. No British government will be able to slip those fetters once our protection within the European Union disappears.

    The length in office of the two existing leaders will have no effect on the permanence of the arrangement they come to.

    The new Westminster term has kicked off a little prematurely with the Cabinet announcing Parliament is to shut down after three days until mid-October. The air is stiff with unprintable epithets, writs are before assorted constitutional courts, the Queen is being defended by everyone concerned. Nobody has so far asked the Army Council to intervene.
