  1. Am I alone in thinking that the water in Lerwick tastes like bleach smells? Mine is altogether different in the north mainland.
  2. For those with Twitter https://twitter.com/AbChav/status/1380575375290421248
  3. All appears well now. Thanks.
  4. Just noticed this on the David Davis Downside Dossier Shellfish. The European Union has told the UK shellfish industry that thousands of tonnes of oyster, mussel, clam, cockle and scallop exports are banned from the bloc indefinitely. British fishers, who had been told by government to expect the ban to last until spring, are warning this will be a fatal blow to their businesses. Perhaps this should be in the Brexit thread, but I think that this will be important to the local fisherfolk in an independence context.
  5. It has to be the next best thing to being part of the EU!!
  6. Boris should come every day. He is the SNP's best recruiting sergeant.
  7. If a country of 5 million can't manage independence I don't see how a county of 23,00 are going to manage. Thanks. I have enjoyed the "battle"!
  8. I am getting a new notification each time something is posted to a thread that I am subscribed to, rather than the expected behaviour, which would be just to get one. Is it me, or is it the forum? Thanks
  9. We will have to wait and see. My opinion is that the EU wants to grow. They have already said something to the effect of "be careful that the door doesn't hit you in the *yrse on the way out". If they wanted to give Johnson a kick they could make Scotland's joining easier.
  10. Incorrect. The UK and Denmark have opt-outs so don’t have to join the Euro. The seven countries without an opt-out and not already in the Euro are supposed to join it, but only once they meet certain conditions. There is currently no time limit on this process. Source: FullFact My bold.
  11. How much clout does Scotland have in the UK? Scotland's debt? You mean the proportion of the UK debt that Westminster has apportioned us?
  12. The Euro is a red herring. We use any currency we like, although we are affected by the monetary policy of the nations' currency that we are adopting.. At some point in the future we can adopt the euro, as it currently stands.
  13. When "we" voted for Brexit. We are a third country who thinks that it should get better treatment than other third countries. Every other third country has to fill in the same forms as we do. We were just woefully prepared for it whilst the Clown played brinkmanship games. "The Scotch – what a verminous race!"; "It’s time Hadrian’s Wall was refortified, to pen them in a ghetto on the other side"; "The nation deserves not merely isolation, but comprehensive extermination". See HERE Not from the pen of Boris Johnson as often reported, but approved by him as the editor of the Spectator
  14. If Brexit is now bad, I assume that what went before was good? If that is the case then independence means going back to what we had before. Not the crap spouted by the Daily Express and the Daily Heil either. The media have been brainwashing the citizens for too long. Bendy bananas anyone?
  15. Where we are today, interfering in the politics and elections of distant countries for one. Not much changes. If we are getting forked over by Europe it is because we chose it. We seem to like democracy until we don't. We (the UK) seem to like rules until they are someone else's rules. We (the UK) are not being treated any worse than any other third country. I will admit that the EU are taking advantage of our stupidity, whether that be the financial markets or warehouse space in Holland. They are doing exactly what we would do to them, but hey, blue passports and freeports.
