It is not news, but entertainment mixed with commentary.  That said, I don't think it is any worse than many other editorial sources.

I find him funny.

See England exited the Euro's again.... and Scotland once again done it differently by not bothering to qualify in the first place.

It may do if the book is revised, who knows.
The vote was never legally binding anyway and all depends if the next person in charge has the bottle to go against the majority.
But then the damage is done.... I don't know. It's a bloody mess. England being knocked out of the Euros last night hasn't helped with my head

last night I was truly embarrassed to be British, listening to Farage in Brussels yesterday.

Quote
In Brussels – biff! – Nigel Farage did his bit for diplomacy by telling the European Parliament: ‘Virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives’.

US bank JP Morgan has said it now expects Scotland to vote for independence and introduce its own currency before Britain leaves the European Union in 2019.

JP Morgan economist Malcolm Barr said in a note to clients: "Our base case is that Scotland will vote for independence and institute a new currency at that point (2019)"

You can take our EU, but you can never take away our neverendum!

Would the EU take Scotland on its own?  I mean, it is not guaranteed, and if they left the UK without being part of the EU they could be in a bad way.

As Chunkford noted, like all of the other important EU referendums, won't they just keep holding them until they get the result they wanted? Worked for them with the Lisbon treaty. How many times was that one rejected?

Blaming the thick is not right as we are not all thick and racist.

 With you Rich. There was a very good reason for voting out... The Democratic Deficit. I don't blame anyone.

There are many opportunities too. The EU bureaucracy is too big, to invasive and too powerful.  Europe is stagnating. 

There could be a "Northern Powerhouse" UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark... with a "EU light".  Germany and France want to sell to us...  they might talk tough, but they need us.

It is going to be tough, but it might harden people up a bit. I do find the hate sooo sad though, it is so unnecessary.

A mate of mine has said something interesting today about the EU.
He reckons the reason why the 'EU' wants Turkey to join is because they have the people power to help create this EU army that is being spouted.
