As England continues to decline post-Brexit, both Scotland and the northern counties of Ireland will look to their own futures. Independence for Scotland. Reunification for Northern Ireland.

Great ! I would love to see an independent Scotland integrated to the EU.

seeing how they were treated with Brexit, the Scots at the very least deserve a new referendum.

It'd be quite amusing Scotlands top assets are its whisky and oil, all the big banks have said they would headquarter themselves in England should the referendum proceed, watch the unemployment rise in Scotland and the economy stagnate.

Which banks were those, and did they say that before or after the EU referendum? Recently, I hear more about banks moving their assets from the UK to mainland Europe.

Clydesdale Bank, RBS and TSB are all major banks that have said they would relocate if the result returned was for Independence!

Scotland would gain little as its economy is in the wrong position, especially as its based soley on the volitile oil markets! Also the SNP cant decide on a currency in the event of them leaving. The people of Scotland dont want to join the Euro and the UK has said it wont be able to use the Pound if it goes it own way. The idea of a transitional "Scottish Pound" was rubbished by many as the losses incured to the population would be huge!
