    Yes you are Tommy.

    The problem you have is not Scottish Independence but that by and large most of us south of the border don't give a toss.

    Well perhaps you can show me where i have cried over brexit?

    I was jumping up and down with delight when you daft barstewards voted brexit and we voted remain.

    Didnt quite make up for the disappointment of 2014 , but wasnt that far behind either.

    The problem you have borkie is the 7 billion non english people on this planet couldnt really give a flying feck one way or the other wether you leave the eu or dont , its just the earache we are getting over it and the incessant anglo saxon whingeing that this return of the empire malarkey is no all its cracked up to be is getting a bit much.

    FFS borkie , two and a half years and counting is bad.

    im no wan to look a gift horse in the mouth , so you brexit , we uk exit , and all happy.

    Come oan borkie dont bottle it now , im cheering you on here in amongst sheepies incessant whingeing.

    Admittedly a 300 mile hole in the EU's tariff wall could lead to the latter bleeding to death, but that's show business and nothing for the UK to worry on.
    Like ive said many times before and has been hinted at by the EU recently, they can easily complete the checks etc on mainland europe before sending to/from Ireland. It will solve the EUs problem but the UK will be screwed as again it wont have a border and therefore wont have a tarriff wall with anyone.

    It would make life difficult for Ireland but it would be more inconceivable for Britian as it wont have a trade deal with the EU or with anyone for that matter on favourable terms.

    Not really Tommy. Time was when the Scottish education system was the best in world. But now, under Wee Krankee and Sammy the Seal, well...

    Still, I will do my best to fill the gaps that the SNP has left in your education.

    The British Empire was a free trade zone enclosed by the Royal Navy and the Maxim gun. It collapsed because by the 1900s it stopped making money. In fact the only reason that it creaked along as long as it did was that the Indian and Empire civil services were effectively job creation schemes for the Scottish and Irish middle classes.

    The EU is pretty much the British Empire Mark 2, except that it does not have any ships or redcoats to to protect it, so it probably won't last that much longer.

    .
    i left school in the late eighties borkie , before there was a scottish devolved parliament and labour used scotland for voting fodder.

    Theres no gap in my education that wasnt caused by your countries thatcher government , back in the good ol days of mass unemployment and leaky school roofs.

    The British Empire was a free trade zone enclosed by the Royal Navy and the Maxim gun. It collapsed because by the 1900s it stopped making money. In fact the only reason that it creaked along as long as it did was that the Indian and Empire civil services were effectively job creation schemes for the Scottish and Irish middle classes.
    The british empire was never at any point a free trade zone.

    It was nothing but the massive exploitation of 70 countries around the world and a captive audience being told what to do with a westminster gun pointed at their heads.

    The former mughal empire that became british india went from being a highly educated region responsible for 25% of the worlds GDP , till you british reduced it to a poster boy for the third world , with mass illiteracy whilst extracting an estimated 75 trillion pounds over a two hundred year period in one country alone.

    The british empire never ever stopped making money , there is no better way to make money than stealing other peoples in your wonderfull free trade zone.

    Scotland didnt need a job creation scheme prior to the union.

    In the decade prior to the awfull "union" of 1707 , the historian michael lynch pointed out the scottish economy was growing at more than 2 % per annum , the burghs had never had it so good trading with france germany and the low countries.

    After that fatefull day in 1707 , the scottish economy went into freefall for the next 9 decades. Our population went from 20 % of the disunited kingdoms to 8.9 % three hundred years later , while irelands halved in the space of a century.

    If life was that good in the "british free trade zone" as you call it , why does not one country want to come back under mother englands rule??

    The EU is pretty much the British Empire Mark 2, except that it does not have any ships or redcoats to to protect it, so it probably won't last that much longer.
    Ah ok mate, ive only been hearing for the past forty years that european integration is just about to end.

    I bet the eu outlives the uk me old china.

    The burnt hand teaches best as grannie Mac used to say.

    Two months to go sheeps , then you can party , or knowing you , carry on whingeing more like.
    Why is it when you globalists talk about border control you think it means going back a 1000 years? The sheep are the ones opening their country to the unknown people they are letting in.
