I would then look forward to the discussion about Scotlands own relationship with the EU.

An independent Scotland would be able to take a position on EU membership; in a post-Brexit scenario I think it would be a no brainer.

Not so sure it would be. I think (hope) that people who are looking for independence are actually looking for independence.

Outside the EU and with your own currency. To me that is the only real independence. For me, almost every argument about Brexit, you can make a similar case for independence. Borders, biggest trading relationship, currency etc. It's all very similar. 

I want a free trade agreement with free(ish) movement but without the political ties.

I have huge issues with the EU but I completely reject the idea that membership means that member states are not autonomous, independent countries.  It's Daily Heil style bullshit tbh.

I find the demand for absolute independence to be a bit daft and the stuff of the 19th century or something tbh. The world's interconnected now and the Tories attempt to obliterate workers rights in a post-Brexit blitz shows that the politicians closer to home don't necessarily care more for you.

It would be interesting to know whether Scotland in EFTA/EEA would fare against UK out the EU.

America ditching the Trans Pacific Partnership led Japan and other Far Eastern countries to speed up a deal with the EU, which means the tariffs for American farmers exporting to Japan average around 30%, EU tariffs are eliminated for 90% of agricultural exports. Similar is happening in other industries. Britain will be joining America with shitty trade deals and having to accept American crappy standards of health and animal welfare, along with opening up the public sector to US firms profit gouging.

This. Although i really couldn't see me voting to join thr EU. I voted remain because leaving wasn't worth it but doubt I'd vote to join them. Not after the way they handled the refugees and Catalonia. c***s

16-34 year old 66:34 Yes

55+ 36:64

46% of 2017 Westminster Labour voters would vote Yes, while 14% of SNP voters would vote No

19% each of Better Together and Indy voters have changes sides since 2014.

Better times ahead again for the SNP by the looks of things if there is a soft Brexit as the deal over the RoI-NI border seems to require.
