    I found this old thread... hmmm

    I supported and was rooting for Alex Salmond and the SNP this last go round.

    One of the planks in the SNP platform was citizenship for anyone with Scottish parents or grandparents...

    You never know, dual citizenship might be a handy thing to have in the coming future.

    4 years ago I would have said, with some reservations, yes.

    Ofcourse, we've had the independence referendum in 2014, which has settled the issue for a while. But the biggest reason is the oil. Since before the indyref the oil price has crashed, and Scotland's deficit has hugely worsened. An independent Scotland today would have a deficit of 9% of GDP, highest in the western world.

    Oil could go back up, but it's volatile. Scotland needs to ensure it's economy is stable without the oil - which will run out oneday, anyway. Right now I'd say an indy Scotland isn't a good idea.

    Some Scots are now saying if England votes to leave the EU, another indyref should be held. That's an crazy idea. Why leave your biggest trading partner for a much less significant one, and trade 59/650 MPs for 6/750?

    Yes, if only to see how ridiculous the SNP would be with complete control over their territory. It would also give the right a better chance throughout the rest of Britain. They do everything differently already it seems to there's no point in them being part of Britain other than than to siphon money off the English, because they're oh so downtrodden (even though unlike the English in Celtic territory the Scots completely erased Pictish culture and language when they migrated from Ireland).

    Not having a dig at Scots I hasten to add, just this trend of anti-English insecure nationalism that is only acceptable because it's socialist, pro-immigration and anti-English. If the tacky, touristy tartan and bagpipes idea of Scottish identity is so important to them they can keep it the other side of Hardrian's wall where it belongs.

    The SNP is just another typical Marxist driven political party, select a group they can classify as underdogs or victims, deliberatively rile them up, gain control, and then work against the interests they claimed to stand for in the first place.

    The fact that they're eager to join the EU is just a glaring example (at least in my opinion) of how much of it is based on insecurity as well, since they are essentially replacing one form of dependence with another, one of which they share no history with and has its own agenda. Seems to me like the SNP just want to make a petty statement rather than actually work towards having enough economic and financial independence to be an independent nation. If the EU didn't exist I very much doubt the SNP would be calling for more referendums.

    I'm all for Scotland being independent if that's what the majority of Scots want, it could have the positive benefit of the English becoming more consciously aware of their roots. If they are relying on the EU to achieve that goal though they are shooting themselves in the foot. Being in a union with a shared history, and shared blood is much safer than being completely under the control and will of globalists, but I'm confident the average Scot here knows this. I think it would be a good idea to stand united for the time being until some form of new order is established.

    Yes, I wish they had voted for independence.

    I'm tired of subsiding those bitter, ungrateful Anglophobe's with their false sense of victim mentality.

    They are a millstone around England's neck.
    Anglo-Saxons are forbidden the same level of racial consciousness of other groups (even amongst Whites).

    While our many accomplishments are forgotten, there is no end of blaming Anglo-Saxons for the problems and inadequacies of the world (White & non-white alike).

    Please remember that criticism is always welcome, but must be done so respectfully and civilly.

    Non-constructive and disrespectful criticism has plagued this thread from the start, so lets try to change things this time around.

    Nah it's just a bunch of whiney SNP bastards moaning about "Muh highlands" that's driving it. Although that being said, if we leave and secure an oil deal at the lower 60 bucks a' barrel we'd still be the 15th highest GDP per capita.

    Would it benefit the Scots and the preservation of their identity?
    If so yes, but from what I’ve read the SNP are Cultural Marxist scum, so no.
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    I am not Scotch and neither do I live in Scotland but I am sick to death of this ongoing saga and I am tired of viewing dour Scotch faces on the Television moaning about how hard done they are by the 'nasty' English. Scotland is behaving like a petulant and moaning wife who threatens to leave. I would call their bluff and tell them to go! Thus I voted 'leave'!

    I'm not a Brit but I've still met a fair number of Scots. My honest impression is that the English would be better off without them.
