So what about that vote waaaay back in September that nixed independence by 55%-45%? That's not a huge margin of victory, but it's still a solid win. So much for a vote of the people? What's going on here?
I've always chuckled at that. They will have even less power in th EU on their own, but hey, I don't live in Scotland so good luck to them, I won't really care.

Is it not funny?
The scots whine about being ruled by the "oppresive" westminster yet are happy to be ruled from Brussels and berlin?

I really like how the main parties and the media big up the SNP. But when it comes to the BNP it's " they are fascists and nazis". Funny that is'nt it.
Don't confuse the issue with "but the BNP are nazis" they are both nationalistic parties with their nastionalistic stances.
As for the Conservatives, they were ecstatic with the SNP, Lib Dems and UKIP as they split the vote against Labour and won them the election. So what good is the 56 SNP MPs in Westminster. Nothing, absolutely nothing.
