    I ask again why is Westminster so terrified of the concept? If scotland is such a drain on the economy why not just agree to let us piss off on our own.

    I reckon we should have a Referendum (excluding the Scots) as to whether we should kick the Scots out of the Union.

    Don't expect us to come back when boris turns you into a third world nation or to bail you out of bankruptcy. While we're at it why don't we ask the eu (excluding the UK) to have a referendum on whether we should be allowed to leave.

    I believe the south of england has been mooted as the place to put trident after you get independence. The twenty mothballed nuclear submarines could be stored on the thames as a tourist attraction.
