Said in your best Mel Gibson voice, I'm sure.

@fitheach Exactly and Gesture. Everyone hates England but its such a nice country, the people in Kent are also nice just the Londoners are greedy assholes *sigh*

@yukiame
Scottish independence isn't anti-English, it is pro-Scottish.

It is about the people living in Scotland making the decisions that affect us. Just as people do in Denmark, Sweden, Ireland, Finland, Norway etc., etc.

@fitheach @yukiame

So how is staying in the EU pro-Scottish? The UK is trying to get you out of the tangle and from what I've read most Scottish separatists are EU stooges.

Seems to me the UK has been wonderful for many centuries, it'd be sad to see the mainland ruin a wonderful union!

@IsaacWestcott @fitheach the UK is ruining a wonderful EU- union and the EU will not forget that

@yukiame @fitheach

The EU ruined itself by existing. It tried to integrate divergent and variously developed economies under a system which imposed one-size fits all solutions, thus creating massive stress. As the years went by it's policies just created more and more stress an already fragile system.

Not taking the Euro was the smartest thing that the UK did when joining that organization, it'll make leaving that much more painless. I hope the break is clean and the UK can form powerful economic relationships with its former colonies and fellow 5-eyes nations.

@IsaacWestcott @fitheach it was the dumbest thing to do not joining the Euro. A tiny island with tiny currency. min 20 Nations around the EU would die to join

@yukiame @fitheach

North Africa and the Middle East? Yeah they are trying to join right now via other means, do you really want those people xD

@IsaacWestcott @fitheach Yes esp Turkey and all recently joined counties had yuge benefit and Development

@yukiame @fitheach

I think you misunderstood the joke. Well if you believe that inviting MENA into your alliance is beneficial by all means. I'm certain you'll save money on border security that way xD
@yukiame @fitheach @IsaacWestcott The €uro is also a shit idea strongarmed into the EU by Mitterand, a socialist who wanted to make weakening Germany his legacy. All it lead to is that strong economies are gifting goods to weak economies to keep a goodamn fiat currency going. Its not like the people from richer countries get nothing out of it. The Creditors of the Greek government got a lot of nice ports from Greece's default.

@MaxMustermann @IsaacWestcott @fitheach

i'm not surprised - Germany paid for greek Debt and got for that the Ports

@MaxMustermann @IsaacWestcott @fitheach the UK is just scared that they have to pay for an faltering Euro ! Together we stand or fall

@yukiame @fitheach @IsaacWestcott
Brexit is going to happen despite May's best efforts, because the delay shit show is a catastrophe for the EU already. The Euro also won't last like the last experiment of a international currency.

@MaxMustermann @IsaacWestcott @fitheach it will not happen it can't happen - thats why May is meandering like this. The Euro must survive at all cost or we all go down

The EU has ruined any chances to get the feared alliance with Russia that could give us freedom from Atlantisicism since the cold war was over and In will not forget it. I will rember it as soon I become Kaiser....in Minecraft.
@yukiame @fitheach @IsaacWestcott
That's a cute codeword for a CIA operation. Come back after you googled "Big game russia england prussia" for more than 15 minutes.

@fitheach

The same place that recently did not choose Independence when all they had to do was vote for it

@AtlasFreeman
For sure had Scotland voted Yes in 2014 life would've been simpler. 😃 TBF Glasgow was a Yes positive city, as was my home area, but the result was still a narrow win for No.

Since then all the promises by the No campaign have been shown to be hollow, notably the bit about staying in the EU.

Amazingly, the Yes campaign has grown stronger since the defeat in 2014. The Unionists are desparate to avoid another vote, because they know this time they will lose.
