    If SNP wants to become the New Palestinian authority, they can go right ahead.

    WTF has this to do with Ukraine???

    It's a fitting response to a separatist post here. Move on and a direct your "WTF" posts elsewhere.

    That picture is so ugly, its almost funny.
    Thats Muslim's smugness is only overshadowed by his disbelief that the woman can be so moronic.

    I've no doubt that the way things are going, Britain will be much like 1990s Chechnya in around 20 or so years. Britain is already some kind of Orwellian state with all its harrassment of indigeneous citizens trying to speak their mind. The cops have to report "hate incidents" when no crime was commited but someone expresses disapproval eg of immigration. But if you try and report a real crime eg a violent attack/robbery/burglary etc they often refuse to record it because it might lower their "successful clearup" figures.

    I got banned from Facebook this week for pointing out that a Pakistani is not "British". And I cited ASIAN newspapers in Britain as my authority. Because every single Asian in Britain was described as "Asian" not "British" or "Asian British" in it

    No problem. As you  instruct I will direct my WTF posts at any posts that take a thread here totally off topic.

    EDIT

    This post was moved, with others, from the Ukraine thread to take the Scottish stuff out of it and bring it here.

    it sets a precedence .... Israel does not take kindly to being criticised .... it will hurt more because Scotland is the only country not to have persecuted Jews in Europe ... Scotland has been a sanctuary for Jews throughout the centuries

    in Scotland standing up to their illegal settlements hopefully other countries in the EU and beyond follow suit

    remind us how it went with Scotland telling the US to mind their own business in regards to the so called Lockerbie bomber abdelbaset al megrahi convicted on the grounds of evidence provided by 2 paid CIA informants (unknown at the time) when we announced we were releasing him .... we don't answer to America and the SNP government has heavily criticised the Israelis government and stated they would put sanctions on them

    seriously you haven't a clue John ... if threats and bullying is the UK establishment is the only tools left to keep the UK "United" then it is obvious that union is finished ... i think you will find the rest of the UK will lose way more For example its seat in the permanent council of the UN as you will no longer be the UK, over £65 billion exports to Scotland all Scotland's exports will leave from Scottish ports and airports 10s of thousands of oil and gas jobs in England back to Scotland you have very little oil and Gas and the maritime borders will have to be redrawn back to 1999 when the westminster redrew Scottish maritime borders without the consent of Scotland and UNCLOS when the rUK grabbed 6,000 square miles of Scotland's maritime waters ... we have vast amounts of oil and gas reserves worth trillions in even todays prices, we have large deposits of gold untapped over 200 tonnes in one site alone nr Loch Lomond ... i think you will find we will do just fine

    As I have said, I love your optimism and hope. I wish you God speed and, from the perspective of serf in middle England I hope it all happens and we lose both Scotland and the seat on the UNSC. But, I am not sure:

    - that anyone other than a few in Scotland will be aware that they are being "bullied", it will be part of an honest, open and factual discussion of the financial implications of independence

    - what we export that is worth £65B to Scotland and if we do where the alternative economic supply is for you as Scots will still want their Range Rovers, Astras, Nissans etc. Just as we will still want you whiskey etc

    - if it was economic then Scotland's exports would already be going from Scotland's ports/airports. As I have said before, even most of your salmon goes via Heathrow as cargo in planes leaving from there. Those planes will never go to their destinations from Scotland

    - there are no longer 10s of thousands of jobs in oil. With oil under $50 new undersea fields are no longer viable and exploration in them around the world has virtually stopped

    - as the last point, ownership of the seabed is now irrelevant. But you are welcome to it as restitution costs are going to be serious

    - good luck with the gold.

    Can I ask Godric, how has this evolved...

    Scotland is sick of being dictated to by London, but will leave the Britian to be dictated to by Brussels.

    I just find it odd.

    I mean I can semi understand it in the sense that we here in New Zealand wanted independence from London, but wanted to remain part of the british commonwealth... but that was mostly economic and really has no real meaning now as the EU dictates trade to us now.

    For instance France murders a photographer in New Zealand and then threatens us that we wont be able to trade within the EU if we don't just shut up and ignore their act of terrorism.

    No help from the UK and silence of course from interpol... I think a lot of New Zealanders started to turn to the US after all that...

    Brussels is very different from Westminster/London our parliament has very little control over everything that matters leaving the UK and remaining in the EU will give Holyrood control over almost everything ... only a small percentage of power will be transferred over to Brussels ... you have to understand Scotland's history to understand our connection with Europe ... The Scottish alliance with France is the oldest in history dating back to 1296 AD and is still in operation 720 years later

    and with Scotland leaving the UK it throws a massive spanner in Nato they would lose control of a massive area of the North Atlantic

    Don't see how being a small fish in a big pond can be any better than being a small fish in a small pond.

    Scotland should just arrive at a compromise with Westminister on their respective differences and let it be. Scotland will never have everything it wants but in the long run it will certainly keep more of what it wants by being part of the UK then by becoming part of the EU and then slowly having more and more of its independence and identity eroded away in favour of a 'European' one and creeping military, political, cultural centralization. And the worst thing is that this will happen slowly and gently enough so that it doesn't build up a crucial amount of dissent and backlash (boiling the frog slowly rather than quickly), and what's more you'll eventually end up wanting all that stuff yourself - it will feel like an 'evolution' of public opinion whereas in fact what is happening is indoctrination under the influence of the media and EU-obsessed political elites.

    There already was a referendum 3 years ago.. and the majority of the Scottish population decided that they want to remain part of the British crown and share in its decisions. That also entails going along with its international decisions; be it wars or be it memberships of this or that economic union. On the EU the British public made a united decision and you can't claim Scotland didn't have its say. If it was a war the government wouldn't have even asked. But people knew all this and voted for staying in the UK anyway.

    The issue now, even after the vote in Holyrood today, is that there will be no new vote on independence until after the UK has left the EU. It is as simple as that.

    Even if there was the will in the UK Parliament to allow it, which there isn't, there will not be enough Parliamentary time to process it through given all the other work they will have to do surrounding Brexit.

    So Scotland, whether it likes it or not, and there is some debate on the subject, will be out in a couple of years. If it then votes to be independent then it can decide whether to re-apply.

    Even if there was the will in the UK Parliament to allow it, which there isn't, there will not be enough Parliamentary time to process it through given all the other work they will have to do surrounding Brexit.

    So Scotland, whether it likes it or not, and there is some debate on the subject, will be out in a couple of years. If it then votes to be independent then it can decide whether to re-apply.

    they can't stop it all SNP needs to do is resign all of their 56 seats and we campaign on the grounds of a simple majority = Independence quite simply win 30 of those 56 seats and declare independence

    Its not that simple, Scotland is not a sovereign country, it is part of the UK and only Westminster can legally break the Union. You would have to declare some kind of unilateral declaration of independence.

    Anyway, would the Scottish people accept some kind of 'first past the MSP post, vote on my behalf' deal? Surely they would want their own vote, you know, a referendum?
