Some pretty unpleasant sexist comments on here. but that's no surprise I guess.
I admire Nicola Sturgeon. I think she's playing a brave, and clever, game and the Tory's are rattled to put it mildly (as can be seen by the desperate hatchet jobs running in the right wing press). If only Labour had a leadership as effective.
Scotland would be fine outside the UK, just as we will be fine outside the EU. What will f*ck us up will be the policy decisions our government takes, not whether we are inside or outside the UK and I can fiully understand why the Scots may decide they'd rather have those decisions taken by a Scottish government rather than a UK one. I would bet on them winning an independence vote.
And this not about 're-running' the referendum. This is now a vote whether to try and stay in the EU, not about whether to leave the UK. Totally different question. I guess it's the arrogance of the English that assumes it's all about us though.
From where I sit I would like Scotland to stay in the UK. But if I was Scottish I would be strongly inclined to vote for independence.
