That's true i suppose, and then some.

I just thought the mannerisms displayed in the graphic somewhat captures the whole Brexit debacle rather aptly.

Come on admit it, that coin would be a dillion.

"The Scots are the worst for it"

Because we did not vote for "it" per-chance?

"I actually think the people afraid of independence are shameful, weak, coward citizens who suck on the teat of the welfare state."

Are you not on some benefits yourself because of health issues?

If so then people in Glasshouses and all that Jazz.

The only thing that's shameful is our politician's inability to act in a meaningful manner.

I claimed ESA for a couple of weeks last year but I do 2 or 3 days a week work each week and pay my own way in life mate.
ESA at £73 a week is less than I earn in a day.
...and yes, you Scots are the whiny socialist teet sucking citizens of the UK.
I'd be happy for you to leave the UK then you can whinge about your new overlords, the EU.
I am actually sick of reading whiny posts from Scots like you making out the world is so terrible. Grow a pair, take responsibility for your life, stop expecting the taxpayer to give you a subsidised house etc.
You moan all the time about the world being so tough, FFS, most of my mates are on minimum wage and are happy, care workers etc, I just totally think you are genetically programmed in Scotland to whinge and whine.
It is pathetic. Maybe it's because you have #e weather compared to down south here. Miserable auld bastards.

Now you're just bordering on the realms of a racist rant I'm afraid.

You moan about people moaning, such a contradiction in terms.

Nuff said really and also funnily enough rather ""pathetic"".

Edit: Also my mummy and daddy were married before i was spawned, so at least where i am concerned, the bastard part is just simply inaccurate. x

Oh behave with the snowflake cries of racism.
All you Scots on ATS whinge and whine when all the while a huge amount extra tax money (per capita) is spent on your people compared to England. It is pathetic.
You are the biggest whiners in the whole of the UK, it is not even a stereotype.
You whine like a little girl all the time on ATS, oh life is so terrible, people are starving in the streets.

Strange how my mates on minimum wage have a decent life, with no social housing like you have, and higher bills like water.
Honestly mate, you are just a nation of whingebags expecting some socialist state to wipe yer arses fer ya.

I'd love Scotland to leave the UK if only to be rid of your constant moaning.

Nothing ""snowflake"" about me CornishCeltGuy. LoL

Like i said, you sound like a borderline racist, it's actually rather funny in a sad sort of manner, i mean true colours and all that jazz. LoL

Obviously that UKIP vote, tactical or otherwise, does not wash off as easy as it went on. LoL

But you keep on moaning about other people moaning and label them in a nonsensical racist manner if you wish, after all it's a free country, so far.

This little titbit from John Caudwell founder of Phones4you might interest you?

Blame Brussels for this mess... and walk away!

'No-deal is more favourable and may now be our only option'

Had the Brussels bullies not been set on punishing the UK for daring to exercise our democratic rights, and had Theresa May not drastically weakened her negotiating position in that disastrous election, it could all have been so different. A smooth, commerce-focused Brexit transition would have been possible, an outcome that remains in both parties' interests. Instead, after two years of negotiation, the Prime Minister's dreadful deal has been tossed on the garbage heap where it belongs.
The promise of Brexit is being snatched away from the 17.4 million people who voted for it by malicious bureaucrats and in-competent ministers.
When I voted to leave two-and-a-half years ago I never imagined the process would have ended up here.

Perhaps I shouldn't have had such confidence that the EU would negotiate in good faith.

With a £95billion trade surplus in goods, it makes no sense to end free trade with one of their biggest markets.
It is now clear that commercial considerations never entered Brussels' way of thinking.
The desire to keep their bureaucratic machine whirring and hold the cosy political club of Europe together is reflected in the mess we now find ourselves in.

I am utterly convinced that other countries were also keen on an exit from the monstrous bureaucracy the EU had become.

The initial idea of a community of countries trading freely has morphed into an unaccountable behemoth issuing diktats from above.

The burden to businesses across the continent has created agitation for change and Brexit would have only been the start.
The powers-that-be in Brussels spotted this and have been set on hanging us out to dry ever since, willingly harming themselves in the process.

To combat this, the UK required strong, decisive leadership. We didn't get it.

This dreadful compromise, in the form of the Withdrawal Agreement, is the result of someone who doesn't believe in the cause being put in charge of the process.

In my many years in business, I have never sent someone into a negotiation who didn't believe in what we were trying to achieve. Yet that is exactly what we have done with the most important issue facing the country for a generation.

Recently, the Prime Minister has resorted to deplorable scare tactics about no-deal, having the gall to warn the 17.4 million people who voted Leave that No Brexit is increasingly likely.

Warnings of no food and no medicine are an absolute nonsense that reveal the Government's increasingly sneering attitude towards its people.While I don't doubt that there will be short-term turbulence, the UK's economy and businesses are resilient and will increasingly grasp the opportunity to sell to newer, bigger markets across the globe.

This was never possible under Theresa May's proposed deal

Bring it on NO DEAL!! We're leaving.

Bollocks, you Scots make whinging a national sport.
If you played rugby as well as you whinge you'd win the 6 nations every year lol.

More tax money spent on your people than folk in England, water bills included in council tax (and subsidised), free prescriptions, free university tuition, yet still you whinge about evil England.
I am sick of it to be honest, hence my rant here.

Take personal responsibility like English people do instead of expecting the government to wipe your arse for you.
Maybe if Scottish people didn't get pissed up on booze so much you'd have more money to buy food while living in your subsidised social housing.

...and before you cry about that, it is a fact, more people die of alcoholism in Scotland than any other nation in the UK. Just Google it...nation of whining moaning drunks who have more tax money (per capita) spent on them than England or Wales.

Yawn, more anti-Scots gibberish.

We must really be a right big thorn in your Cornish paw?

Must be because we are all steaming. LoL

No wonder with the ""Bollocks"" you're coming away with today.

What happened, some mad steaming Scots Man steal the meat out your pasty like?

On that note, i dont think i need a drink, i know i do.

Point out where I am factually incorrect then.
You have much more tax money (per capita) spent on your people than England and Wales. You have subsidised water charges included in your council tax, you have free prescriptions and university tuition, and still you whinge like the world is terrible.
Try living down here, you wouldn't last 5 minutes without that socialist SNP teat to suckle on.
You are a whingebag, and most of the Scots on ATS seem the same.
djz3ro would be the one exception in my opinion, but the rest of you are a bunch of auld whingebags.

Campaign for a referendum to leave the UK, I won't miss your whinging...go suck off the teat of the EU.
...shut the door behind you as well.

I lived all over the UK, never had much truck with anybody i could not handle, i would last as long as i would wish to.

Your a racist if im a whingebag, and not even a half decent one at that. x

I won't need to campaign for a referendum to leave the UK, if and when Brexit happens, even the likes of Sturgeon will do so, that's pretty much a given.

So you might even get your wish, after all.

Ile shut the door behind me alright, but it will be to hit you on the arse on the way out.

To be honest your sounding like you should still be on your mother's teat.

Good. I hope you leave the UK and become a minor player in the EU.
#ing whinging Scots, at least you will be moaning about Brussels instead of England so I can ignore it.
Come on though, dispute my points about how Scotland has it better than England and Wales.
You can't, yet still you whine like little girls.
Scotland has it good compared to us but you often post 'woe is me' here on ATS, like you need a socialist state to wipe yer arse.
It is pathetic.
I hope you do leave the UK...#ing socialist leeching whingebags.

Cheese toasties sounds great, and since the Mrs has, unfortunately, burned the Sunday Duck, its either that or Pot Noddle.

I'm thinking belated pub lunch might be on the cards. LoL

You should move down here, my local pub is everything £2.50.
I had a roast chicken dinner and a pint for a fiver earlier. One chicken breast, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, boiled spuds, peas, sweetcorn, red cabbage, and sprouts.
I don't really cook anymore, I eat at the pub. Gammon, two fried eggs, chips and peas £2.50.
Full cooked breakfast is served before 12pm, 2 sausages, 2 fried eggs, 1 hash brown, 2 bacon, beans, and 2 grilled tomato halves...£2.50.
Pointless cooking at home with that just down the hill.

For £2.50 a pop that is indeed a bargain.

Probably places like that around these here parts also, but i imagine about £5 as low as it would get.

Lucky to get a sandwich in Glasgow these days for £2.50.

Pointless indeed cooking at those prices, if its a pub though im sure i would make up the difference in pints.

The landlord owns 5 tourist pubs where they charge £25 minimum for a meal, he is from a poor background and passionate about keeping 'the local pub' alive so his other bars subsidise it. He is old school.
It is a totally dodgy local pub though, you can buy smuggled tobacco and allsorts lol
Good banter there, and you can leave your phone or whatever on the table if you go out for a smoke, safe place, proper safe so long as you are not being a prick.

I once lived in Cornwall. Penzance, Marazion & Helston, to be precise.
Cmon, you talk about Scots moaning. You can't beat a Cornishman when he's got something to moan about.
Strangely, his complaints are often similar to those of the Scots.

I can't do a like for like comparison between Scotland and Cornwall. They're too different. For a start, one's a country and the other's a county/duchy.

Cornwall has it's own problems. It's got quite the booming economy during the tourist months. But it's got the same issues with unemployment n such like when the tourists go home. Public transport down there is pretty hopeless. If you can get a job you often can't get to it at the times you're required to. There is a demand for public housing, my experience of private renting in Cornwall is that the rents down there are sky high compared to what you get, rents are driven way higher due to visitors/tourist traffic, short term leases being the norm for many, no security of tenure, absent landlords who don't give a toss. The lack of social housing for the locals is a huge, huge issue.

What's the solution ? Duh. Build more council houses. What's the problem ? Cornwall never elects a socialist county council. It always elects a hotch potch mixture of tories, liberals and independents. Want better public transport and more social housing ? Elect the right people and send them up to London to whinge and whine and moan and complain until you get it.

Cornwall/England already had a public water supply. But you elected a government for your own country which imposed private water on you. The Scots voted against. They retained what they already had - a public water supply. England and Cornwall gave it all away to the private sector. And you're holding that against Scotland ? Seriously ? You gave away your own public water supply and you cast it up against Scotland now for not doing so ? More fool you lot.

See, if the Scots whinge at all, at least we're good at it.

Some here just whinge and have nothing to show for it. Much like Cornwall. You can't whinge about having so few council houses and crappy roads and no free prescriptions and no this and no that if you consistently elect representatives who aren't going to give you it.

And you certainly can't complain about Scotland being a socialist leeching paradise when you want some of that nice socialist stuff yourself, but you can't be arsed electing anyone who'll fight your corner to get you it. What a damned cheek coming here with your petted lip and petty jealousies when the fault lies with yourselves.

Seems Miss Sturgeon has more balls than some Cornishmen round here.

I don't whinge. I don't want social housing. I don't want the state to wipe my arse.
I'm happy with the state leaving me alone and I sort my own # out.
Scottish people want to suckle on the teat of mother EU lol.
Like beggars.
