    But London has a population 3.4m bigger ?

    So in order we keep the Scotts happy, do you suggest we ignore the majority vote and remain ?
    Keep Britain British, whoops, it's too late

    Except I am not a lone voice and I will have a vote in the Referendum

    I thought you would have known exactly what my view was on that issue

    Where does population come into the equation? London is a City. Scotland is a country.

    Each country should have had a veto.

    Well I said I knew you would put a thread up after I watched QT last night yet you posted a surprised emoticon at that,why I don't know because it's as obvious as your view as stated.

As far as the BBC are concerned, someone on this very site summed it up perfectly, the BBC are an electronic version of the Guardian !!
    It wasn’t a British referendum otherwise Scotland and Ireland wouldn’t have got a vote (not being part of Britain)

    It was a UK referendum.
    I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you.

    Britain refers to the island i.e. Scotland, England, Wales. I know that many of your countrymen see England & Britain as synonyms. Good to see that you are one of them.

    Don't be ridiculous. You are suggesting therefore that England leaves the EU, and Scotland remains. I doubt the EU even know Scotland exists. We have had this discussion before. I would be delighted if Scotland wasn't part of the UK, as the Barnett formula costs the good old English a fortune keeping the Sweaties in free prescriptions and free education. As far as I am concerned Donald Trump can spend any left over money building another wall between us, but until then you are part of the UK, and should respect democracy.
    Keep Britain British, whoops, it's too late
