    Nationalism is a blind ideology.

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

        Not in my name, I wish she would just shut up and get the message, Scotland is a thriving part of the UK, we want to stay that way. This is just pandering to her "braveheart rabble"

        Thought about listening to Scots who actually live in Scotland?

            People see Scotland with Free Prescriptions No University Fees (ignoring the dire finance of Scottish Unis compared to UK ones) and think greedy sods - if they want to go good riddance.
            I suppose if England introduced fees for breathing fresh air Scotland would receive unfair prejudice for not paying. You can't blame other countries for introducing laws at home you don't like.

            'Them taking our jobs' is proving to be a falsehood time and time again. Although it sells DM papers...
            More often than not it has been shown 'Brits' lack the necessary skills.

                Lots of countries much poorer than Scotland stand on their own two feet. An independent Scotland might not be a prosperous G8 nation but they're still a 1st-world nation.

                Apart from anything else, Scotland is 1/3 of the UK by area but only 1/13 the population. They could actually grow all their own food and generate all their own energy if they needed to, we sure as heck cannot. Scotland could probably run 100% on green energy if it had to(?)

                  You just voted to leave the EU to regain your sovereignty are you now suggesting that Scots too shouldn't democratically decide ?

                  What I do see is a government and a country in disarray.

                  First, you seem to be incapable of posting anything without a , so it's rather difficult to tell what your emotions might be, but I'm picturing you with a permanently smug complexion. Second, I don't recall you posting anything in the last ~six months that wasn't whining about Brexit or about the financial consequences that you're hoping for.

                    A fraction of 48% of the voting public is in complete disarray, I agree. Bless.

                      Claiming the UK is not in disarray is just deluding yourself. You can say it's silly short-term panic rather than due to fundamental weaknesses, but that doesn't mean it's not happening.
