however to say that an option to remain should not be included in another referendum is to deny people the democratic right to change their vote.


Is it not the democratic right of people who voted leave to expect those that voted remain to respect the result of the referendum.

 With the UK public in an almost 50/50 split I reckon a break up of the UK ( in the medium term ) will be the result as there's going to be such a sizeable section on the, " losing" side whatever the eventual outcome.

Reruning the referendum may/may not reverse the result- but there's going to be roughly a "losing " half yet again

At no point are Brexiteers going to rally behind remaining or Remainers support Brexit hence for those regions with the option of remaining via independence - a split becomes ever more attractive

Part of my reasoning behind this is quite simple

Post Brexit Britain is going to be very different. 

As they have already shown the Rees Mogg Boris type little Englander elites running the show will barely be able to disguise their disdain for the Scots/ Paddies. That in itself will be petrol on the fire of independence even before we see how they allocate funding etc

You'd be better questioning the attitudes of the privileged chinless wonder elite of the Mogg/ Johnson types who show disdain to all of those who weren't part of the Bullingdon cabal!!

As regards those of us seeking independence/ unity- if/ when you create your inward looking insular throwback utopia you're welcome to it but don't drag those of a more progressive mindset down with you

Breaking news....the Empires long gone!!!

What utter nonsense - no the vast majority of Scots DO NOT show disdain for the rest of the UK and it's simply ridiculous to suggest that they do.

So when, as last time a General Election is called after two years, why wasn’t there a big “the people have voted, and the losers should understand that” response??
