  1. libtard diversion how about your lefty greek mates sending bombs to germany and france.... Americanism that does not ally with UK politics.
  2. its called facts something the snp have no knowledge of.... Well your facts seem to imply that ScotGov can run a deficit when they cant? That the ScotGov plan wasn't published, when it was? That you couldn't propose amendments to the Art50 bill, when that's exactly what the HOL was trying to do? So.... Glasgow rules?......explain NHS A&E, link to where this has been claimed.... Vanity projects...such as?
  3. a50 does not cover future relations, so why would it have any amendments to do with the future, its easy to understand ffs I dunno, I guess the HOL when discussing adding amendments were off their heads eh? https://www.theguardian.com/politics/blog/live/2017/mar/13/article-50-commons-lords-brexit-sturgeon-speech-corbyn-clarifies-his-position-on-second-scottish-independence-referendum-saying-hes-opposed-politics-live
  4. yes they have a plan the pm has already set that out, what the outcome will be is another question robertson wants under the exit bill which triggers a50 a scottish section on future of the eu in scotland, its not covered by a50 yet the thicko keeps banging on about it the day after the ref. snp claimed they had a plan, to date its never been released.... Right, some clarity, ty. "Brexit means Brexit. It'll be a red white & blue Brexit. No deal is better than a bad deal" None of these are plans, they are slogans. A one paragraph "white paper" triggering Art50 is also not a plan. Not sure what you're trying to say here. I think you're saying that Roberston wants a part of discussions to be about Scotland having a seperate deal? Again, if you could link to the question or reporting of this as I've not seen it and you're response isn't very clear. The "plan" was given to May & her cronies. Are you saying Theresa May lied when she said they would not be considering the proposals made by ScotGov, and handed over in person? a50 does not cover future relations, so why would it have any amendments to do with the future, its easy to understand ffs no plan has been seen, the snp have listed demands which their own advisor and the eu have said is not possible That'll be the "no plan" that my BBC link (that you've deleted) quoted and went through?
  5. snp have lost votes, they no longer have a majority scotland gets 100% of its tax back + £29 billion via the barnet formula + £15 billion on the snp's overspend the police, education and the nhs have all got worse under the snp 2016 Constituency vote 1,059,897 Regional vote 953,587 2011 Constituency vote 902,915 Regional vote 876,421 Oh dear, SNP vote up. The majority was lost by the curious anomalies of the De-Hont system. Scotland gets less back than it puts in. ScotGov not allowed to overspend I'm afraid, legally the budget it is given by WM is it. The £15bn "defecit" you reference is the Scottish "share" of UK overspending. NHS scotland is in rude health and taregt figures have risen dramatically. police Scotland also outperforming rUK. Education is an issue, which is why Swinney was swapped to the education dept last year. and so was the tory vote, they still lost seats i will repeat again- scotland gets 100% of its tax back + £29 billion via the barnet formula + £15 billion on the snp's overspend nhs is in melt down, i am well aware of the snp's policy of not checking people into A&E until they have space to fudge the figures the police have been put on glasgow rules, it has been a disaster. council budgets cut, not because of westminster but to fund snp's vanity projects Repeat all you want, it's shite. ScotGov are NOT PERMITTED to run a defecit. NHS Scotland, as you'll have noted, had no junior Drs strike. There's no policy of not checking people in, what banana boat did that float along on? Glasgow rules? Eh???? Vanity projects? Eh? You're mintal min

  8. Really? So youre saying the party that had to be dragged through court to get them to follow legal process, the party that had no plan, the party that still can't say what the plan is, and the party that has no plan at all as Davies admitted if they don't get a deal, that party do have an idea? when will the snp release their plan, the one they claim to have from day 1 when will they release the 2million peoples consultation that they undertook last year why not answer my question? that a50 has nothing to do with future relations with the eu... I haven't seen Angus Robertson's question, do you have a link? The consultation was an internal fact finding process, it was an SNP not govt document. Parties do not normally release details of their focus group consultations. What plan are you talking about? Again if you could clarify this as well, I'll happily answer. Ta. To my question, you think the Tories are a party with any plan?
  9. What constant complaints are these? I live here, the snp keep increasing their vote share, sonething must be right. Yes the Barnet formula. How to give scotland back some of its money. I'll ask again, why do you care so much? Why does england get so irate about scotland wanting to be independent?
  10. You believe the woman who has turned a party of 50 MPs, into a party of one, a party now in third place in Scotland, a party now polling 15% in latest opinion polls, you believe that woman? Och, did ye no read an addendum tae tha post? I'm just going on what I've read in a variety of Scots media and my general impression is that most Scots would prefer unity. But all in all, I really don't know. Just an assumption. It remains to be seen, all in good time now too. You're obviously pro-independence, what are the advantages? Staying in Europe? There is income from petroleum refining and servicing of naval vessels, but what real advantages are there for the average Scot? The country best placed to look after it, the country that should look after it, is that country. The moral argument is first and foremost for me. Europe, I'm totally ambivalent and was only a last minute remainer as the leave crowd's claims got more and more ludicrous. I've hardened considerably as we've seen the mess we're getting into, though to be fair, that could be more a hardening against the appalling talentless mess that the Tories are now. Advantages - as we've seen with 10 years of SNP govt, we can and will do thing differently. Our spending priorities are much different, which is why our NHS is way ahead of the England/Wales NHS. Why police morale is higher, why while we've removed bridge tolls, the Tories in England are still introducing them. While the Tories gave tax cuts ScotGov froze tax thresholds, while the Tories introduced the bedroom tax, the SNP mitigated it. We don't get "freebies" as the mail & express would like you to believe, we spend it in different areas, areas that have seen a minorit SNP govt gain a majority in a system designed specifically to prevent it, and gain a third term on an even bigger popular vote (but the system broke the majority this time).
  11. Except, she hasn't been asked. Needs to go to Holyrood, Sturgeon will ask for Section 30 order, it'll be approved, and passed to WM. May once again showing what a ****wit she is. What it also shows is how pisssed off she was at the drubbing she got from Roberston, McCaig & Sheik yesterday. Snoop dog, snoop dog the snp where a laughing stock yesterday at pmq's, joberston complaining about wagging finger, only to stand their wagging his finger... shrek looks like the girlfriend in coming to america, doing everything shes told to do like a little lapdog th_81144_snapshot20100529175155_122_493lo.jpg macaig was just missing the can of tennents and fag in the gob for that true snp experience.... I think yesterday's goading by roberston , mccaig and tasmina looks awfully suspicious. It's not like the snp to waste PMs questions, but they basically just made their points that were little more than sticking their tongues ou t. And, by the 'if looks could kill' look from May immediately thereafter, I'd say it's had the desired effect. Today the snp got exactly what they wanted from that, May has been played like a fiddle, from Nicola's announcement on Monday which caused Article 50 to be delayed, to today's suicide note. May just doesnt have what it takes against a quality of politician she's not used to facing from Corbyn's mob.

  15. It does, and yet whenever a spanish minister is questioned on this, they always come up with a 'no problem' answer. Funny that eh?
  16. Er. No. UK throws billions into the EU black hole. It performs a similar service to Scotland but the difference is that Scotland has been a part of a hugely successful coherent union for 300 years, is part of the British family of peoples having a shared history and taken a full part in the former British Empire. Not everyone in Scotland who votes SNP wants independence and not everyone who votes SNP is against Brexit. Let Nippy have her vote. She's on a sticky wicket. If Scotland leaves the UK it also leaves the largesse of the English taxpayer. Total opposite of the UK leaving the EU. The result will be to stay in the UK by a wider margin than last time. Oh jesus, quoting a theresa may soundbite now are we? There's very few SNP voters don't want independence, I believe 5% last time it was polled. Not everyone who votes Labour is pro-UK. Not everyone who votes tory is Pro-UK. Not everyone who votes lib-dem is Pro-UK. Not everyone who votes green is Pro-indy. As for "English" largesse (Wales & NI don't contribute to the UK exchequer now eh?), gimme a break, that's proven nonsense, so if you're going to argue, at least base it on facts.
  17. It isn't. All of the business that goes on now will still go on afterwards. The business community will see to it. All that is being ditched is the Brussels bureaucracy. Nobody signed up for a superstate. Why did we find ourselves in the middle of one when we were told it was just a trading bloc? This is about taking back control that should never have been ceded. The EU has nothing to bring to the table. What a strange club it is when the only reason to stay is the punishment it might mete out if you leave. We're back on topic talking about #scotref now right?
  18. It's so weird, a party that has inspired a nation to follow it like no other in living memory in the UK due to it's positive message and positive policies that actually put public services first rather than giving billionaires and big business tax cuts, has gotten this "reputation" among wankers that it's a cult? Just maybe, people are seeing it for what it is, a genuine people's party? Anyway, the pish you're referencing is a story in the Telegraph, only the Telegraph, a paper renowned of course for it's stand on countries self governing
  19. The owners of the local takeaway, or London Mayor? I'm thinking the answer would make a great difference
  20. scotland won't need that 29bn per year from england then....... Nope, cos we'll have kept that and the rest instead of giving it to WM and getting some of it back. Anyway, Leanne Wood and Michelle O'Neill have jumped on, it's a three pronged attack on possibly the most useless PM Britain has ever seen. The British Empire is over folks. Good for the manx too.
  21. DRL are not headlights, dipped or otherwise.
  22. There is no excuse for driving with sidelights, although it ĉould be argued the dangerous practice saves about 0.1p of fuel for every 100 miles fog driving. I think, 'sidelights', is a misnomer, they are actually parking lights and I think dipped headlights must be displayed when moving after sun down..........(NOT when parked)...........happy to be corrected though if I'm wrong............ Nope, they're sidelights.
  23. Interesting in exactly what you'd statistically expect to see type of way?
  24. Why doesn't it bode well? They've shown themselves to be serious, effective and conscientious in government. I finished my sentence too early. "Doesn't bode well for Great Britain and Northern Ireland" As for Albert regarding the Scottish independence, they're fucked financially. Absolutely fucked. One simple question, why is England so keen on hanging onto this "absolutely fucked" colony?
