The Scotch Parliament has again voted for freedom! Betty's English
occupation regime says it will deny democratic process!
The UK has scotched the treasonous secessionist plan from North Britain!
Why do you care Comrade? After all, independence would mean the creation of a >brand new kingdom, or the resurgence of a former one. I am a republican >but...Long live the Stuarts! Which doesn't include the Hanoverian descendants.
King Franz of Scotland? Hmmm, don't think that would gel well really.
I can understand the Scots working themselves up into a nationalistic fervour every so often, but, really, that type of nonsense should be limited to football matches. It's a different ballgame when it is taken to the absurd limits of creating a separate country. I can't see what there is to actually gain. It's more likely to be at a huge cost to set it all up.
Scotland is already a country! Just a question of booting the nasty Sasanach hordes.

And, don't you know? After Brexit, the U.K., will merely reconstitute the Empire and everything will be back in its place as it should be. :-)
Actually, there is already a name for this - "Empire 2.0".
Personally though, I much prefer FUK (Former UK).
Chiefey, how much is the Queen paying you?
The ethnic gaels of Scotland are a minority. Always have been. "Sassenach" is the Gaelic for Saxon. The ethnic Scots majority speak the very Anglo-Saxon language of Scots. Both groups are actually relative newcomers -- the Gaels arriving at the start of the 300s, the Anglo-Saxons in the 400s -- the original owners speaking a language (Pictish) that is apparently close related to Welsh.
Which means you just a) used an ethnic slur to refer to the majority of the country, whilst b) implying that majority will be ethnically cleansed.
Don't get me wrong here. At this point I actually agree with you. The EU can't give May a deal worth having, which means that going independent and joining the EU/NATO/etc. is by far the best option available to them.
