Good luck with that This is Pythonesque - Please Sir, can we vote on our Independence please ? How bloody ridiculous. I’m fairly certain there is zero historic reference for this ! campbellclaret PeterStefanovi2 Why can’t she do what Bojo is doing Pass a Scottish law pronouncing London is no longer in charge!!!!!

If uk was in a union with russia.. russia would never of let uk drag scotland out of the union Time for one in north, Scotland have had a few already. Time for Ireland’s turn. Scotland has already had its referendum on independence. Sturgeon, do they just keep doing it until they vote to leave? Jesus Sturgeon is divisive. The SNP is a divisive party. There has already been a referendum. Sturgeon wants to keep redoing until she gets the result she wants.

Barnett-based funding for the Scottish Government of £41 billion per year – the largest annual funding settlement, since devolution over 20 years ago...North Sea oil and gas was supposed to pay for independence...The SNP Green coalition want to leave oil and gas in the ground.. Best of luck to her and Scotland. The disaster that is a hard Brexit, has made this a more attractive option.

Johnson will refuse. Sturgeon will go ahead regardless. Not a chance Nicola. You had your opportunity in 2014 and you blew it. NicolaSturgeon Ianblackford_MP BorisJohnson HouseofCommons UKGovernments It will be a big fat NO from 10DowningStreet UKBORDERFORCE

Can't see that Fascist regime in Westminster granting a referendum 1. On a legal level ALL UK referendums are advisory (i.e. consultative) so the requirements for a lawful one to be held are not any different by describing it as consultative 2. It would need Westmisnter *legislation* for one to be held that is not ultra vires PS...

I wonder if Scotland voted yes would it encourage Northern Ireland to go for independence🤔 The response will be NO.. next
