Given that they are a part of the British Isles and given that Britain is a net contributor to the tune of some 9 billion pounds a year, quite how they work that out is frankly, absurd.
Meanwhile, the Scottish are wittering on about another 'Independence' referendum which of course, is equally absurd.
For a start, they've had one attempt which they agreed was a once in a lifetime opportunity and did so in full knowledge of the fact there would be a British referendum on membership of the E.E.C.
Apart from the obvious question of why Parliament should concede another independence referendum, how about the English get a referendum on whether or not we want to leave them?
But finally, the $64,000 question is one which at last, some people are at least beginning to recognizing now and indeed is one we have already mused over (see, Blog Contradiction of the Pro-European political and liberal elite 17/6/16.)
Exactly what, makes the SNP think they would win a referendum where they are proposing independence from the British political union, only to re-submerse Scotland in to another, yet this time foreign, European political union?
