An unexpected development.

Is this dissent in the ranks or is it the start of a power struggle over control of Scotland. Read here about the latest statement saying that an independent Scotland would be the third largest nation in the EU and would thrive.

I wonder if they would get a referendum on joining the EU? Although I have heard that they would have to apply to join the EU as it would not be automatic.

Personally I suspect that that was just said to aid our government. Scotland would be welcomed with open arms and with no questions asked.

Anyway, interesting times are ahead.

Scots won't go for this. They would have nobody to blame when things go wrong.

I wish it had been the Chinese that had invaded Britain rather than the Romans. The Chinese were much better at building walls.

Colin, You have to remember that most of them vote Labour. Long term thinking is beyond them. They actually think they will be able to function on their own at the current levels of expenditure.

Now the best bit is, they may be right, you see the EU will take some cash from England and give it to Scotland to keep them going. Just like they do with Poland at the moment. So it may come to pass that there is more English money spent on Scotland than there is now.

When I used to travel to the Irish Republic in the 1970s, it was crawling with EU Projects. I would say that Scotland would be a bottomless pit for those community development and small scale infrastructure projects.
