    Scotland should do fine as a small dependent country in the EU.

    Countries like Latvia and Lithuania do well, so why not Scotland.

    England only wants to leave because it sees France and Germany as competitors and not as benefactors.

    ja ja. and a nuclear accident at said faslane would lose potentially in excess of 1,000,000 lives. funny eh? makes you wonder why faslane isn't on the thames, no? i suspect we'd be very happy to hand it back.

    yes it would. we are an energy, water and skills rich country, with resources that make small nations like denmark etc envious. it is a tad wearisome, and indeed curious, that some who have no dog in this fight whatsoever, become greatly exercised over its outcome.

    It’s also a handy avoidance of pressing matters far closer to home.

    Funny, I dreamed last night about Scotland becoming independent. Crazy as I live on the other side of the world and have never been there.

    My outsider's view is that the UK is run by toddlers and influential unts with a c in front; that the referendum was ridiculous in conception and a mighty cock-up; and that Brexit will a disaster on top of a burgeoning train wreck it's already created without even happening. Under these conditions the eventual breakup of the UK seems inevitable to me - Scotland becoming independent and NI joining the Republic.

    Dreams are strange. Last night I dreamed I was in a bar watching the ITV Soap Awards, when an advert came on for a comedy horror film starring Eddie Murphy. It was called 'Megabus'.

    Mind you, if you close your eyes and wish really really hard, it'll probably be fine.

    I’m a realist. It served me well in business for decades. I hope you don’t mind me asking- do you live in Scotland?

    If it’s not Dunedin, I’m going to tell you to mind your own business.:)

    I lived there from '87 to '00. :cool: Love the place. Moved to Christchurch which was a shithole in comparison, but at the time had work and friends. I live closer to Dunedin now and visit it when I can.

    Being partly Scottish, partly English and partly Irish, I'm about 50% on the Braveheart scale. I embody the United Kingdom, apart from Wales, which is only a Principality anyway.

    Did Boswell and Johnson share a bed as well as a tick collection as far as you know?
