As much as I've disliked his patronising and actually quite naive posts both on this thread

And I though moderators were supposed to avoid making personal comments.

 

Recently I've been told by you that I was a borderline psychopath who would "accidently" be shot by my own side if I was in the British military.

 

Hardly an isolated incident either.

I'm hoping that the "league" part of rugby league doesn't get lost. 


In Topic: Scottish Independence Referendum

Why would the media be friendly to a campaign whose arguments don't add up?

 

The SNP programme is a lot of "Wouldn't it be nice ifs" strung together and doesn't make sense in the real world. Its appeal is largely emotional and trades on a sense of victimhood. It is hardly surprising that the media hasn't really got behind it.

Possibly, I guess language would play a key part of the decision as well.

 

Of the 400k English up there, I wonder how many are left leaning and tempted at the prospect of being able to live in a "Tory/UKIP free zone"! 

UKIP has a Scottish MEP as do the Tories. IIRC the SNP have two.

 

For all the rhetoric about evil Tories that you hear, quite a few Scots vote for them.

 

2010 General Election results in Scotland.

It's part of the UK?

 

I imagine that their reasons are varied and complex. One of which being that they were not moving to a foreign country.
