Re: Will Scotland Leave the UK?

Why not give the Scots more chances to introduce successful policies such as this.

Scotland's record on drug deaths is "indefensible" and the government must do more to save lives, the country's first minister has admitted.
The number of deaths rose to a record 1,264 in 2019 - double the number in 2014 and the worst rate in Europe.

Re: Will Scotland Leave the UK?

Scotland’s drug problem is so bad that Nicola Sturgeon actually sacked the minister in charge of the policy. It is almost unheard of for the SNP to own any sort of failure. Yet even now the nationalist sheep can be found all over social media explaining why the drug death statistics are unfair, untrue and some sort of unionist fudge to make Scotland look bad.

Re: Will Scotland Leave the UK?

Good news for the SNP.
Quote:
Boris Johnson would lose majority and seat in election tomorrow – poll

...Results in Scotland would see the Scottish National party achieve a near complete sweep, winning 57 of the 59 Scottish seats. ..

Justin Ibbett, founder of Focaldata, who carried out a similar poll for the Conservatives prior to the 2019 election, told the Sunday Times: “One year on from their stunning general election triumph, it is clear that the Conservatives already have a lot of work to do if they are to replicate their 2019 success in future elections.

“The SNP would appear to be the real winners. Not only do they win all but two Scottish constituencies, but the most likely outcome is a Labour-SNP coalition government, which would have an overall majority of just over 20 seats.”...

Tory supporters were quick to point out on social media that the survey period ended before news of the Brexit deal was announced and claim there is evidence of a swingback to the Conservatives in the few days since.

As it's in the Scotland thread it's pertinent to the Holyrood elections currently scheduled for May.

57 of 59 seats bodes well for the constituency seats and would leave the SNP needing to pick up only a handful from the regional lists to get an overall majority.

The regional lists are designed to offset disproportionate success in the constituency seats however so it could still be challenging.

Re: Will Scotland Leave the UK?

Former Scottish Conservative MSP Michelle Ballantyne has joined Nigel Farage's Reform UK (ex Brexit Party) and will head up Reform UK Scotland.

They’re unlikely to amount to much in Scotland. UKIP/Brexit made a bit of a showing in the Euro elections here but they’re pretty much irrelevant to distinctly Scottish politics.

What a star Farage WAS. A pity that he's a Trump fan.

Re: Will Scotland Leave the UK?

Love him or loathe him, Farage could see there was a growing percentage of the population unhappy with the EU and managed to give those people a 'figurehead' to follow.
I doubt there would have been any success in a referendum without someone (Farage) becoming the 'champion' of those people and uniting them in a cause.

I don't think it will work again though

He could see an opportunity to promote himself and grab some power, like Boris. Neither care a toss for the masses. Brexit was just a means to their personal ambitions. Boris succeeded, Nigel didn't, so he jumped on the Trump bandwagon...
Wouldn't put it past him to join Scexit if he thinks the tide has turned. Bad news for the Nats if he does.
