Hrm. Thank you Snail.

I'd hope that all groups could work this out together, but i'm not optimistic that will happen.

Honestly jimmy krankie has just been waiting for a opportunity to do another independence vote since she did not like the answer to the last one.
The Scottish people voted 56 to 3 MPs in favour of a second Independence Referendum. SNP were also given a huge chunk of control of the Scottish Parliament, though they did not win an outright majority.

During the Scottish election, the SNP outlined this in their manifesto:

-Should Scotland vote to remain in the EU (which happened unanimously and 62-38 split) and England vote to leave, removing us from the EU anyway then we have the right to vote a second time for Independence due to the huge change in circumstances an EU leave would bring.

The Scottish people voted for a huge SNP majority in favour of this manifesto. So, being dragged out of Europe against our will is something that does indeed trigger another referendum because the circumstances have changed drastically in the 2 years since the vote took place.

Especially when the Better Together campaign made a huge point in stating "A vote for No is a vote for remaining in the EU."

-Many No voters support the EU
-Many YES voters are against joining the EU (38%, or a million people)

The changes drastically call for a re-examination of Scottish sovereignty.

Of course England could have forced Scotland out of the country had the vote gone the other way with Scotland forcing England to stay in the uk? I doubt that's a vote we would have been able to make yet Scotland can do the reverse.

England could vote to leave the UK, as could Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. That would be the only way a country would leave the UK.

England couldn't. If England left the UK, the UK would no longer have a parliament and so would be completely disbanded! The UK would also be history if Scotland go it alone. The UK was created by the union of the English and Scottish crowns.

And Wales would never choose to - they've been ruled by England for 800 years.

Yep, the British Empire was formed by joining Scotland and England (which included Wales at the time) and Ireland.

Hence why Wales has no representation on the British Flag, since Wales was England at the time thus didn't get any special mention on the Union Jack.

DigitalSpy is about 60% shitty articles and 10% GoT spoiling-front pages.

As usual stupidity and over dramatics have taken over the UK throughout the last couple of days. The pound has already bounced back and businesses are coming up with alternative ways to trade and operate. In short, the UK will be absolutely fine, it's still one of the richest countries in the world, and that won't change, Brexit or no Brexit, no business in their right mind would give up producing things for a country this prosperous. All this talk of doom and apocalypse is very over the top, there are several European countries not in the EU and they get on fine. It's simply fearmongering, the EU wants the UK public to think they can't operate without them, which just isn't true.

I don't really see what the big deal is to begin with. I think part of that is because I don't live in the UK, and the only point I've seen in favor of being in the EU runs along the lines of, "The EU may be terrible, but if we're on our own it could be a lot worse."

That would be it cost me 10 more to buy a Figuart from Japan today than it did last August then. Because of all the bouncing back the pound has done and not the fucking hammering it is continuing to take. I was getting 170 JPY per 1 GBP, now down to 130 JPY.

Ebay slapped me in the face today when i went on it. One of the auctions i was watching from Japan suddenly jumped up about 55 due to conversion. I wish places would stop panicking and screaming in terror. The UK left because it didnt want to have to follow a blanket set of Laws. Not because we wanted to float off on our own island and cut ourselves off from the rest of the world.

But you know what, if its going to be better to buy from our own country, which it never used to be, then maybe thats going to benefit us in the long run.

The fall in the pound means it's now more appealing for other countries to buy UK goods. This in turn boosts exports and raises GDP, which will only strengthen the pound (eventually).

Sadly, most of the media has resorted to hysteria. It's this hysteria which is the biggest threat to the economy, as panic people spend less money (which in turn hurts the economy).

Stuff like household appliances, ingredients, health and safety laws that were UK laws changed to be the same as the EU. Theres been incidents of terrorists, or family of terrorists the UK has tried to deport but were not allowed by EU law. We had to change our laws when we joined the EU, they wernt adopted by the EU. So now we can operate however we want again.

Edit: Now i think about it, wernt we not allowed to have the Legacy White ranger movie morpher for sale in Europe because of something they used in the paint?
