    I hope she/the SNP get the most almighty hammering. With both the Indy Ref and Brexit vote I was prepared to accept the outcome should it have not gone the way I hoped. Does an already damaged Scotland have the stomach for this?

      I still don't get what the "Out" Scots want. To leave the Uk, only to replace the largely benign Uk government with the EU? To lose the funding from the Uk, alongside a long-term collapse in oil price? To lose tens of thousands of Uk public sector jobs while only having three people and dog working in the private sector?

      The SNP want to scrap Trident, along presumably with the thousands of supporting jobs on the Clyde.

      Fine, if Scotland wants to leave, then let them go. I just don't see what they expect their future to look like, other than bleak and impoverished.

        You clearly don't understand anything. What they look forward to is a bright and prosperous future, freed from the shackles of the oppressive English.

        And will be supported in their old age by the income from the massive oil-backed sovereign wealth fund that will be established on day 1.

              Whether or not that's true (it isn't), it's an interesting reflection on your character that you're hoping for the worst.

                There's a few on here that would quite happily see the UK on the rocks. No idea where the hatred comes from (save for Scootscot).

                    It's hard to hope for something different when driving up the wrong side of the motorway.

                      Just glancing the hate-filled spite on the BBC's HYS awakens the ugly tulip I thought was behind us. Shudder.

                      I hate this. I'm reminded how much Scots are hated. Feck who wouldn't want out.
