From a southern point of view the Scots politicians driving on their quest for national independance appears to be at odds with the mood of the country, do they really want to face economics on their own, the possibility of borders and tariffs and being run by the EU, apart from drawing a line between the friendship and most likely relations south of the border that have centuries of history to share. Would a Scottish fisherman be glad to share his waters so readily?

It does seem to be an obsession. What do you think?

    I honestly think that most of the Scottish people don't want this, it seems to be all down to NS wanting more power...hopefully the people will see sense..

    I think it's a simplistic solution to a complex problem.

    The purpose is probably to save Sturgeon's career just as the purpose of the Brexit referendum was to save Cameron's. The latter didn't work and the former probably won't either.

    Would N. STURGEON be on the wrong side of Scottish elections for Holyrood, timewise, if a independance referendum was delayed until after Brexit?

    Might the nationalist party be out of office or with reduced seats by then? Or is my mind too devious?
