Anonymous said: Still won't happen. You SNP fascasits can't say if we will be controlled from Europe, if we'll be in. Vote UKIP!

The SNP has set out their terms very clearly. The fault lies with the UK Government. They could have went with the Scottish Government to the EU commission jointly to ask what would the legal position be, what is in place to allow Scotland to become a member, what will the costs be, negotiated positions etc. But because the UK will not pre-negotiate, we can not get this information, which is deeply irresponsible on the UK Gov’s part.

"Vote UKIP." We’ll just leave it that.

Anonymous said: Well, you fascist separatist. how it feel to hear Juncker say there will be a pause to EU membership? You SNP faggots are totally shafted now.

Well, sorry to burst your triumphant bubble there my BritNat friend.

Juncker’s speech made absolutely no mention of Scotland or its potential membership of the EU as an independent nation. In fact, Juncker’s spokewoman just a couple of hours ago mentioned that Scotland was not mentioned at all, and that Scotland’s situation was entirely different.

What Juncker was actually talking about, was pausing further EU expansion into Eastern Europe, particularly the former satellite states of the Soviet Union. Which is a fairly pragmatic approach, given the tensions with Russia at the moment.

Nice try though pal.

The Yes campaign—dominated by the SNP, which runs Scotland’s devolved government—has been hard at it for over 18 months and it shows. Lamp-posts, windows and billboards in Glasgow are pasted with separatists’ posters and scrawled with their slogans. “Yes Scotland! No more Tory governments ever!”…

The Yes campaign is not SNP dominated. The campaign left the SNP behind at least a year ago. The same old tired, boring arguments. Think outside your box before creating such tosh.

To my scottish indy comrades.

News has just hit that an IPSOS MORI whistle blower has said the reason the UK Government will not publish the poll they commissioned is because 80% of the undecided asked in the poll, would vote for independence if the vote was today. Meaning that the yes side would win with a substantial majority over the Unionists.

There are efforts to see if this is accurate, so far it has not been confirmed nor denied.

So The Economist decides to run this cover in its latest edition. Telling us Scots not to vote for independence, while at the same time insulting us by calling us ‘Skintland’ and portraying racial stereotypes, like in its cover image.
No doubt in The Economist, an article on Africa will depict a black man wearing furs, carrying a spear with a bone through his nose, as their cover image of choice.
And they wonder why many of us are sick to death of this establishment patronising?

Realised that chasing my ambitions for the past few months, ruthlessly so, has made me neglect people, particularly the better half of me, But she has put up with it even though she shouldn’t have had to.

I’m going to just take the rest of the summer to chill out and take a break from the speaking, the canvassing, the politics and the career chasing. I need to be a better friend, son and bf.

Anonymous said: Just wanted to run this scenario past you, since you're pro Scottish independence. What do you think will happen if Scotland votes no, then David Cameron gets back in as Prime Minister (maybe with a majority in the Commons). And then has his referendum on the EU and the rUK votes to leave the EU? Is Scotland pro-Europe, didn't it elect a UKIP MEP?

Wow, great question. I try not to think about these types of questions, as I’m focussing  on getting a yes vote and believe we will vote for independence.

But the question you ask is a really important one. Let me just answer the part is Scotland pro-Europe or not. Consistently polling has shown that Scotland is not as fiercely Eurosceptic as England has become. There has been a consistent majority in favour of remaining in Europe, although this is modest, usually in the mid-50s percentage wise. For me personally, the fact a UKIP MEP was elected in Scotland was an utter embarrassment, but democracy is an imperfect beast. over 100,000 voted for UKIP in Scotland so we can’t dismiss that. But UKIP squeezed in because the left and centre-left vote was split between the Greens and the SNP.

Now as to a no vote and the Tories taking us out of Europe, well that’s quite the scenario. In my opinion, if Scotland remains in the Union and David Cameron achieves a majority or forms another coalition with a pro-referendum party, tries to renegotiate Britain’s membership to the EU and then puts the results to the people in an in/out referendum, then two things will happen.

Firstly (and I don’t think this will happen, because political, Scotland is absolutely electric at the moment) we will just accept it and say nothing, even if we voted to remain in the EU.

Secondly - and much more likely- if Scotland votes to remain in Europe, but is pulled out because of the Eurosceptic vote, particularly in England, there will be absolute uproar. I have no doubt, there will be a mass demand for another referendum on whether Scotland should remain in the UK, and if one is granted, we will vote yes, dissolve the political Union with the rUK and seek to join the EU as an independent state.

Its a good question you asked, hope this response is satisfying.
