I see where this is going. Next we will be hearing -"The Supreme Leader will close Parliament and he will decide for us !"

The supreme leader being Jean Claude Juncker, President of Scotland and other members of the European Federation, all using the Euro and protected by the European Army? That's where I see things heading, Boris or no Boris.

He doesn't like being reminded of that these days, for some reason

Juncker is not the one who has been talking about "proroguing Parliament" The anti-democrats are the Old Etonians who aspire to be leaders.

For the same reason he didn't like being asked about the £350 million quid?

Scots voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU. In fact, a far greater percentage see EU Membership more important than UK membership...

Ergo, if the UK leaves the EU, Scotland leaves the UK....

So long it was good to know you.
If being dragged out of the EU against their wishes wasn't enough to get Scots voting to quit the Union, having BJ foisted on us will be the straw that breaks the camels back.....

Of course I don’t. Equally, I’m sure you don’t believe Scotland can stand on its own two feet in the word.

Does Scotland leave though? With guarantees of joining the EU? I'm sure it's really quick to join so maybe it's worth having another indy ref and seeing what happens? I mean, that's what the UK as a whole is up for right - keep voting until the other side get the answer they want?

Meanwhile floods of colonists are migrating to Scotland from England. Excluded now from the White Commonwealth, with the prospect of no access to the EU, busloads of them are descending on us. "White Flight" from The South ?

I walk around some parts of Scotland and the prevailing accent is Home Counties (in the posher places) or Lancashire (in the less posh places).

Attitudes - and votes- are not quite the same as those of the aboriginal inhabitants. Vae victis ! We are paying the price for voting the wrong way in the Scottish Referendum of 2014.

We are going the same way as The Maoris - soon to be a minority in our own land.

Maybe they're just relocating temporarily to get the kids through free University?
