  1. When will indyref2 happen?

    Export Statistics Scotland is the Scotgov agency keeping tabs on this In theory all produce originating in Scotland that is exported through rUK ports is meant to be recorded towards the Scottish BofP. In practice as we are all one nation their is no regulations which demand that correct point of origin is recorded. It is a voluntary thing based on survey return. Not high on the list of priorities for most exporting companies. ESS have a tough job. The figures produced are therefore a GERSlike guestimate. Familiar story. What ESS does state is: "The ESS estimates only capture the first point of export. This means if a good is exported to a company in the rest of the UK and that company then exports it somewhere else, ESS will only capture the export to the rest of the UK." Its obvious the whole 4 x the trade argument is nonsense.
  2. Ian Blackford MP

    The fact that britnat rags and britnat roasters are even seeking to make political gain out of this shows pure desperation. Ian Blackford has not broken any parlaimemtary rules or laws. He is in a minority of SNP mp's with subsidiary incomes. He has never sought to use his parlaimentary position to benefit himself. Now lets put it in perspective. The trougherdom that has went on /does go on within the British establishment tory/liebour parties is endemic. And....has been for decades!! People ain't daft. The majority will suss this out for the hypocrisy it is.

    As in my post re Rosyth. Initial government spending on subsidy for private business/ infrastructure growth, makes facilities competitive, leading to business boost and employment : >wealthier populace. >wealthier govt Slow but sure. The Sheri-boyds won't like it. But its the only way.

    A subsidy towards re-introducing passenger traffic/ expanding freight routes from Rosyth to the continent would be a start. Enough to allow operators to be competitive with or indeed undercut Newcastle/ Hull etc. Followed by similar Aberdeen to Scandinavia if and when demand permits. Freight currently has to travel to Harwich. Low pricing increasing demand would encourage private investment in ifrastructure in and around the ports and therefore further operators wishing to use them. A small price for Scotgov to pay for long term growth.

    Is that the disappearing establishment paedophile dossier or the tory dark money/ offshore capital scam cover up.
  6. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I do detest the perception of sticking up for Corbyns labour....... but a higher proportion of Conservative voters voted leave than voters of any other major party. The tories have the bigger problem with standing on a remain ticket. Ain't gonnae happen.
  7. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    In times of crisis the Roman republic appointed an all poweful dictator to bulldoze over all the petty squabbling in the senate. History repeats itself they say, so I wonder who we are going to get.

    Difficult one for the Beeb this. The editorial solution for distorting Scotland could be: "It has been alleged that solicitors practicing criminal law in Scotland are facing a shortage of work. This being as a result of policies being pusued by the Scottish govt."

    There will be a very different EU response this time round. See recent comments by numerous EU and EU member state officials such as Guy Verhofstadt, the Spanish foriegn minister, leader of German opposition etc etc...and that is before the UK has even left.

    Its only dangerous because both sides were at it during the last referendum debate and fudged the issue. BT profited as better the devil you know. I feel too many of our old are under the impression that the NI they paid throughout their working lives is kept in some big differentiated account somewhere, gathering interest to fund their continued retirement. The feeling is that they have paid in to rUK and want their money out. That needs fully exposed. Obviously the reality is that this has never happened and it is the current working generation who fund todays pensioners. Continuing UK govt policy and its negative effect on Scotlands age demographics are a disaster waiting to happen for this nation. That is the reality of how we are eventually going to be unable to maintain pensions. We will have spending choices when we become independent but making pensions a priority in a campaign could do much to reassure the older vote. The future independence campaign needs to be clear. Pensions will be paid post independence by the Scottish govt. No nonsense about rUK being responsible for this or that.
  12. When will indyref2 happen?

    Not particularly helpful to "blame" any particular group for the last referendum. However one extremely influential group that overwhelmingly voted to reject independence was the over 55's. Scots born and non Scots born. Given that as seen UK pensions are some of the lowest among any developed countries. This is an area the independence organisation can work on. It would not be too ambitious to suggest we should be matching the pension spend of our nearest European counterparts.

    Its been debunked by the Spaniards themselves on several occassions: Current Spanish administration: https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-spain-politics-scotland-idUKKCN1NP25P Previous Spanish administration: https://fullfact.org/europe/eu-membership-spain-scotland/ It sounds a good argument in the heads of British nationalists I am sure.
  14. When will indyref2 happen?

    I wonder how the average british nationalist would have reacted if the EU had denied them permission for their referendum The matter may well go through the courts.....national and international. The UK govt will lose.... and become even more of an international point and laugh job.
  15. When will indyref2 happen?

    Lot of bull being spouted on this thread. The key issue here is a UK prime minister has taken it upon herself to deny our nation the process to democratically decide its own future. It is now clear this is not a temporary withdrawal of permission. This is permanent. Regardless of you having planned to vote yes or no....it is a democratic outrage and a step towards fascism. Some of the above crazies that are defending the UK govts position on this, just because they do not want indepenence need to have a look at themselves.
