Don’t kid yourself the future of the UK is to destroy workers rights, turn us into a mini US

 

To be fair, there is a productivity issue in the UK. We lag behind other countries in this. There are two possible ways to change this. Make people work longer (dont think this will make a huge difference) or increase the number of working people. Given we have an ageing population, this points to the fact that we need larger immigration. So all those pesky foreigners that the Pro-Brexit arseholes based their campaign on keeping out are actually exactly what this country needs. Couldnt make it up!

I'm more No than ever because Douglas Ross says an independent Scotland will be like Zimbabwe and Venezuela and hundreds of thousands will flee the country to escape economic turmoil.

I wouldn't be surprised if the economic turmoil caused a flow of refugees alright, but it might well be into Scotland rather than out of it.

I'm Yes to No because this lady and her fridge magnets were right, making decisions is hard.

I stopped having profane pro-indy thoughts once I started eating my cereal.

I dont understand what we are waiting for now, we should name the date for the next indyref asap. To pass up an opportunity like this could be regretted later.
 

It was announced - 19 October 2023.

Well, it was announced that that's the proposed date - far less clear that it's actually going to occur on that date, given the legal wrangling about competence etc and the seeming unwillingness of the UK Government to "allow" it.

I don't think we can say anything has been "called", unfortunately, only proposed.

agree, Thats what I was thinking also. At moment its only proposed. We shouldnt wait any longer things have changed so fast and with the Tories decimated, time to take charge rather than wait on some establishment ruling that most likely is going to say a much delayed no anyway. 

BTW Whats the plan if/when its a no?

Can mind when it came on after a debate I think it was. 

Thought it was a parody until the end when it showed it was by the no campaign or whatever. Un fucking real.

I'd say so.

With so much turmoil in the world, many just don't want to think about it.

A lot of independence voters realise they had their chance in 2014.  People just want to get on with their lives, and the momentum within the Independence movement has all but disappeared.  Yestival was nothing more than a damp squib.

People can only focus on the constitution for so long before they get bored and hardly anyone is even talking about this alleged referendum in just over a years time.

Brexit makes the case for independence even weaker, as getting into the EU would be a highly lengthly, complicated state of affairs with all sorts of questions of currency, the border, the debt etc.  This would be coupled with all the complexities of splitting off in the first place.  Scexit and Eujoin at once?  It would make Brexit look like a walk in the park.

Ive certainly moved from yes to no, im a massive fan of being poorer. My gran used to tell me about living in slums, using food rations and rolling black outs etc, it sounds like a great laugh and the only way to guarantee that is to vote no. Im also a big fan of the shift to the far right that politics has taken since 2014, its quite sensible to just blame foreigners for everything thats going wrong.

The fact that so many people don't know the date, or that a referendum is allegedly taking place, shows just how lacklustre the supposed campaign is and how little momentum the movement has.

It's almost as if they have no intention of ever having a referendum and are using it as a carrot to get numpties to vote for them in perpetuity.

Aye, the SNP definitely don't want Scotland to be independent.
