Hmmm, the gnats promise me week by week deadlines. They pass. It's never announced and the gnats then ignore further questioning. I'm fairly certain that you will indeed be wrong Renfrew. Indy is just a dangled carrot to keep people voting SNP.

Nobody is going to pay for it because there will be no indyref2. That bluff has been called many times over.

I would have thought it a career-ending move for any party leader calling a second failed referendum.

From todays newspaper
Scotland’s GDP was up by 0.9% in the third quarter last year, compared with 0.8% in the rest of the UK, the latest National Accounts show.
But Scottish growth remains 1.4% below the level seen two years ago, compared with a rise of 6% across the UK, as the impact of the oil price slump continues to take its toll.
The UK economy also enjoyed growth of 4% over the year to September 2016 - compared with just 0.2% in Scotland.
Professor John McLaren of Scottish Trends said: “While the third quarter figure for Scottish GDP (in cash terms and including North Sea activity) is positive, the longer run position remains poor, with the level of GDP still below what was seen two years ago.
“Furthermore the Scottish Trade balance for 2016, while improving a little in Q3, is still likely to worsen by over £3 billion from 2015.”

It is really a question of whether the EU will be able make the cash support available to Scotland to match the current Barnett subsidies from England. The failure of the Scottish Government to follow the rest of the UK in raising the personal higher rate tax threshold means those earning above the threshold pay £350 more in tax per annum in Scotland than in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

I thought the SNP had always boasted about how they would be a net contributor to the EU.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better we not only save 350 million a week by leaving the EU but we get the EU to pay Scotland to stay afloat and we save the Barnett money as well, shoots and scores.

"Just when you thought it could not get any better, we not only save 350million a week by leaving the EU " .

You know, I could have sworn I read on here in your many posts, that, it was only because you could see through all the lies and deceptions ( plus avidly watching Andrew Neill it now transpires ) that convinced you the only option was to leave

Now, about the fabled £350m......how come this escaped you ?

It was a bit of a fishing expedition but didn't expect to hook such a whopper.

Unfortunately, you've made the claim too many times as to what induced you to vote leave......and how you saw through all the lies, for the above to have any credibility.

Utter madness that anyone would want to give £350m/week for our NHS to squander.

I'd much rather keep the £190m net and spend it much more efficiently.

But the gnats tell us that the EU will fast track Scotland, Scotland can afford it, Scotland don't need to join the euro and can use the pound. Scotland is leaving the EU and likely the single market. That matter of the huge black hole in the finances is just the Ainglish and their fancy accounting designed to keep Scotland captive.

So, what ya waiting for? Get indyref2 going now! Free Scotland. Freeeedum!

Get on with it.
