English people inbreeding is still less against nature than Scottish people not.

And the whole of the UK ended up with a PM it hadn't legitimately voted in, don't pretend it's just you.

I'd bet they still go nuts on July 4th, even though Texas was still in Mexico when independence was declared.



Texas was never a part of Mexico, you spanish-speaking, liberal puss.

Corby the place that voted for Louise ****ing Mensch? What kind of shit Scots would vote for a Tory MP?

EDIT:

I was struck by the whole different cultures thing when I visited Scotland a few months ago. For most of our history, we've been warring and killing each other, and we've kind of been dicks. I don't know that any nation has a different history, I mean France didn't just spring into being as France, there were many many wars of unification and conquest and suppressions of regional identities involved. Perhaps the fact that Scotland still does feel distinct is a testament to how strong the identity is.

I'm against scottish independence, mainly because they're one of the only things keeping the Tories from having a majority in every election.

Look at pretty much any general election map of the UK and you'll see blue down south and in the countryside and then red as you go north and in major cities.

If the argument for independence is to do with not being represented in Government, then I'm all for it, as long as we can go too.

Someone mentioned Scotland having lots of wind energy (I think it was Random88).

I heard that two provinces in Germany have an oversupply of wind energy in Germany and that they couldn't get rid of it
I may have misunderstood it, but I got the impression that they couldn't sell it to other countries. Is that a possibility for Scotland? It would suck if Scotland couldn't sell all that energy, unless I misunderstood that.

But given the huge amount of history between all the relevant countries, there's a much bigger difference between Scottish/UK cultural identities than there is between Texas/USA identities.

I'm pretty sure all European countries' grids are linked into one another, there must be a way to get revenue based on what you 'put into' the grid. For the energy companies anyway, but Scotland would surely get some tax money or something. I'm no expert though, so I don't know any specifics. It must be possible though

Everytime you do this here I'm going to have to remind you who London voted in for Mayor.

So long as the SNP court the left of labour vote and the main parties continue to be cunts on a colossal scale I'll be voting independence when it comes round.

All of this post infuriates me. The reminder of Boris, the reminder that my neck of the woods is full of Tory scum while you have cuddly social democrats....

population of london outnumbers scotland, so idgaf mostly. the lack of tory support up that way is a bonus though. it exists outside the north but we're rarely concentrated just enough to overcome the silly voting system; where I know I'm just voting it out of principle and not really affecting anything. and most people I know who don't bother voting would've have gone tory.

I think we'd be better off united country, maybe a bit less london-centric though.

Because England is shit, and needs Scotland to reduce the wank to good guy ratio.

1st time was because everyone thought ken was a slimy prick and thought it'd be funny to have boris.

2nd time was because everyone still thinks ken is a slimy prick and none of the smaller parties were that impressive.

livingstone just needs to piss off already.
