Cleft stick

Here’s the way it is.

In the Independence Referendum, I voted Yes, because I’m passionately Scottish, and I believe that my nation can not only survive but be a force in the modern world.

In the EU Referendum I voted Leave, because I do not wish my grandson to be a citizen of the monstrous, ungovernable, riven Federal European State that I believe is  inevitable. There’s already talk of the French ceding control of its nuclear deterrent to Europe.

Now Nicola wants me to vote again. She’s asking me to choose between remaining British or remaining European. The dozy mare is asking me to vote for the lesser of two evils.

Sorry lass, my grandson will always win.

    Well said Quintin. When the EU started out as a market place, I was a strong supporter. However, when they started to make laws affecting the UK (and Scotland), I became less supportive and eventually, leave became the only solution.
    I did not vote yes in the last Indy Ref, and if the SNP do indeed get their wish for another, I will again vote NO. Britain is stronger together, no doubt about it. Given all the devolved powers, Ms Sturgeon would better employed governing Scotland, attempting to reduce our wee deficit (15 Billion), than embarking on another ‘Head in the Clouds’ Referendum.
    Sadly, the SNP have lost the way, maybe Ruth and Kezia can Support the PM to halt this madness.

    I suppose it can be considered progress that these things are no longer sorted out by plot, clan, and sword.
    Nice moves today by the PM. I think the only referendum we need right now is a referendum on whether or not we should have any more referendums. On anything. Ever.
