    Lucky for Scotland.....

    Lucky for Scotland that they voted to stay in the Union, the oil price collapse would have thrown a spanner in the works for their budget plans.

    Can you imagine the embarrassment of asking for help so soon?

    They wouldn't have necessarily got help. Entry into the EU is not automatic or immediate. They''d have to qualify apparently.

    You mean the Union (UK) that they would have just stuck two fingers up at (metaphorically speaking)?

    yes and oil can also go up so might be that by time we were independent it would have went other way... its nice to look back but at least scotland thought to ask bout doing something different

    Yes, I believe that's what the OP was getting at.

    For myself I would have stuck up two fingers back.

    scots are canny folk, they got exactly what they wanted, the way they wanted it by blackmailing the rest to think they would break away.

    scotlands energy future lies in renewables.

    no because the split would have taken 2 years. Does expose the folly of basing a budget on oil revenues though.

    ewwaxo

    they should put their nuclear power stations in London. see how Westminster would like that. oh and relocate3 all their nuclear subs to davenport ,
    oh I forgot, they were refused permission to put nuclear subs in davenport because of the risks to the local population

    Incase you forgot in your racist rantings about Dcotlands refurendum, thousands of people like me wanted to stay in UK!!! Your nasty comments are racist and inapropriate!!! This should be removed as it is offensive!!!
