Also, it's pretty dim of you to equate a referendum with a general election.

We have elections every so often because society changes as do policies. We have elections so that people can effect change within the system. Because sometimes, or a lot of the time, the elected leaders don't fulfil their promises.

We ha ve elections so that the power, in part, lies with the people, and we have some control over who controls our nation...what do you suggest, that we have one single election, and then whoever is in power appoints a successor?

The idea of a referendum is to ask a question where there are two potential answers, it's a yes or no.. it's not the same as an election,we can only leave the union once.

So we should only have to vote to remain once, it isn't the same. I find it telling that you seem not to understand the difference between the two...although I'm sure you do, just the usual mental gymnastics employed by those who ain't getting their way.

It's called democracy, 45% of Scots apparently don't like it....apparently they want some dictatorship where the government ignores and over-rules the majority. Also, they apparently want to have one single election whereby we elect a party and leave them to it...let them appoint their own successor, that's a great idea.

I think you should run for PM!

LOL


What part of people can change their minds is complicated? Or should referendum results be hiding for ever?

Scottish people should stop looking at the EU referendum as a scottish vote, it wasn't - the UK voted as a single entity...this was decided before the EU referendum when 55% of Scots voted to remain part of the union.

EU ref wasn't a Scottish vote.

It really pisses me off, that we have an ignorant and selfish 45% who believe they have more rights than the majority.

They pretend they're patriotic, yet they'd happily see the wishes of the majority be trodden on and ignored.

Westminster SHOULD block another indy ref, they'd be acting on behalf of the eloctorate if they did.

What kind of patriot doesn't respect the rights and wishes of 55% of the nation they pretend they care so much about?


Aren't people allowed to change their minds?

Why do we bother keep having elections? Should still have the Whig party in charge.


Who said people have changed their minds?

By that standard we should have a referendum every couple of years forever.

Tell me, if the nationalists finally get their way and win...will the unionists be able to call for an equal number of referendums to reform the union?

How many should we have before we decide enough is enough?

By these standars, if Scots get another referendum and win..that's two chances they were given...so we can then have two more referendums in favour of unionisation...fair's fair, right?

Who has changed their mind? I haven't...


Don't you think leaving the EU counts a major change of circumstances?


For who?


For pretty much everyone in the UK i would imagine.

Just to clarify...we can't both leave and remain part of the EU...you understand that, right?

That's the whole idea, we vote...and the majority wins. That's how it's suposed to work, yes leaving the EU is a big change, but it's a change that the majority were in favour of, hence the results of that referendum.

Scotland didn't vote as a single entity in that election...45% of separatists think that's the case becuase they still struggle to accept the outcome of a previous referendum.

They really don't like democracy at all, they dislike it so much, that these so-called "patriots" will happily see the majority be overruled in their favour...that's how "patriotic" they are.

Personally, all I see is a bunch of whiney, selfish people - but each to their own.

Given the magnitude of the decision do you not think democracy would entail at least giving Scotland the choice of what is more important, staying in the the UK or staying in the EU?

No...you're still looking at this situation from the persepctive of a Scot when you're British, that's the problem here.

You didn't or shouldn't have voted from that perspective, that wasn't the question - the question was should the UK remain part of the EU...not Scotland.

Why should England not get another vote, or Wales?

Why didn't we all vote as separate nations? The answers lies therein.

No I fully understand it was a UK referendum and that means that the UK is leaving. At no single point have I said otherwise.

That however in no way precludes Scotland having a separate vote on independence.
