The UK is a union of different countries.
Aberdeen played Celtic last weekend I think it was,the team with the highest score won as is normal and if my memory serves me right that was Celtic.
No arguments there?
June 23rd 2016 the whole country (UK)voted yes or no to remain or leave the EU
The majority vote was to leave the EU.(Brexit). That is the way the system works
Why can folk not accept that and move on to the next chapter.
The EU is a union of different countries.
The will of the Scottish people was to remain in the UK.
The will of the Scottish people was to remain in the EU.
The democratic conundrum occurs because it's impossible to remain in both, even more complicated is the fact that there are people who voted to leave the UK who also voted to leave the EU and vice versa.
Another complication is the fact the SNP were democratically elected in the last Scottish election (which they won) on a manifesto pledge of holding another referendum if Scotland was dragged out of the EU against it's will.
Yet another complication is the democratically elected members of the Scottish parliament (all political parties) held a vote to decide if Scotland should have another referendum and they decided by parliamentary majority that they should.
So far the Tories have said they will overrule the decision of the Scottish parliament and block it, which begs the question who has the strongest democratic mandate?
