    I reckon she cares more about Scotlands rural communities than Theresa May does.All she's interested in is dragging more wealth into SE England.

    With respect, I feel that you are being a little unfair. Theresa May will be doing her best to bring more wealth into the United Kingdom. She would not be so foolish as to only be considering the south-east. Watch her movements over the next few weeks.

    Absolutely. The recent rise in popularity of these face to face debates between the political leaders is just a media circus and of very little value. We don't have to copy the Americans! It may make for entertaining television, watching them try to score points off each other, but the reality is that the public want carefully considered answers to serious questions.
    I have no doubt that Theresa May will be very active during the next few weeks and she has already stated her willingness to address an even handed public audience.
     
  7. If Theresa May can't debate on TV
    (I agree the formats are pretty poor)
    what hope does she have debating with EU?

    I don't know if there will be any debating with the EU.She'll be told what the deal is.

    Then the process won't take long and we will be out before two years.
     
  11. She seems to be obsessed with taking Scotland out of the uk

    To seek independence for your country is a noble thing.Washington,Ghandi,Collins etc.....I don't consider William Wallace a disgrace.I consider him a patriot and hero.Different folks have different perspectives on things,I suppose.

    Yet not quite so noble for the UK

    Scotland sought the union of the crowns to bail them out of the Darian fiasco, if we adopt the EU type stance, Scotland will face a hefty bill when the compound interest is added on which I doubt the oil will cover?

    The opposite may be true! Have you considered that we might in fact tell the EU what the deal is? Don't forget, they sell us far more then we sell them.

    Nichola Sturgeon needs to bone up on her Scottish history. She won't be the toast of Scotland when she takes her country back into bankruptcy. Hopefully, the General Election results will show her that the Scottish people aren't stupid.

    You had better hope the rest of the old empire doesn't send England a compounded bill for their years of exploitation then.:D

  20. That's a bold statement!

    Every other country in the world "survives by itself."
