The only assumptions I make are that you wish the U.K. to remain as present,.....
....that you don’t wish Scotland to be independent.....
.... and that you have no interest in the Northern Isles other than as an anti Scottish independence debating point.
Had the internet and ATS been available in the 1920’s, you’d be seen here arguing against independence for Ireland, India and all the rest. Because it’s the same basic issue : the right to determine your own future for yourself.
You do your argument no favours.....
..... by constantly reminding us about the down side of independence, of troubles that might come our way following a successful Yes vote.
The Scottish contributors here are acutely aware of the risks that independence may bring.
I was talking about maintaining the UK as presently constituted, not any of your other proposed reforms.
As well you know.
So you can get off that high horse.
The status of the Northern Isles isn't a serious issue to either the islanders or Scotland, not at the moment at least.
You mention it only because......
Beggar thy neighbour, after all.
Inviting debate of your own own late night fantasies is a different subject altogether, more for alternative history/timelines.
And it would genuinely be nice for persons like yourself to consider where we're coming from, even once in a while.
I've been well supportive and you are #ed off with me as well!!! 😂😂😂

I've never once seen you contribute here with anything positive to say about any aspect of Scottish independence, not once.
