Untapped oil =/= exploitable.
[quote="Godric"what part of every single region of Scotland voted to remain in the EU do you not understand ??
EU membership is a UK vote and UK issue. The UK voted as a whole and the UK was admitted as a whole in the first place.
Same as in Spain, Belgium and so on.

If the islanders decide to remain with the UK or later disassociate from a failing/bankrupt rScotland, it is up to them really.
The Royal Navy will just safeguard that right of theirs.

you are living in a fantasy if you think the UK could force us to remain in the UK
the Royal Navy had to use a mothballed 40 year old destroyer to escort the Admiral Kuznetsov 5 years ago and the type 23 frigates are nearing their end of service date
I am seriously starting to think you are a troll
You're just pro-EU, it's OK to disagree. Your stance in repeating a referendum till ''we get it right'' is typical EU. Nobody forced the voters of Scotland (not all ethnic Scots btw) to remain in the UK in 2014 and nobody can force certain islands or counties of Scotland to remain in a prospective new country.
