You ever form a coalition with the Tories....You will get hammered....Unless you garner and get a win in a independence vote....Which the Tories may not grant anyway.

Last poll had stay 11 points ahead.

The only reason for your success is taking left wing Labour support..The Tories are doing fine in Scotland..

Suicide to go in with the Tories..

Talk about Catch 22!  They've been checkmated into a corner methinks

They will abstain. And I would only use checkmate as a terminology for possibility of another indyref. The current situation plays out in only ways from here that improves the prospects for Scotland's independence. Brexit goes ahead as the sham it is in this guise (half-arsed) with much confusion, chaos and financial instability that leaves many Scots who voted no last time moving firmly into the yes camp. I cannot see anything but a significantly smaller number moving in the opposite direction of thought. An election will follow and looks all ends up like a hung parliament. Where do Labour go to make up a coalition? Where do Tories go to make up a coalition not forgetting where they have alienated potential supporters with sufficient seats LibDem and DUP?

I still can't understand why the UK (or even the England bit of it) wanting to free itself from an overbearing, officious, didactic, bureaucratic, often unwieldy beast called the EU should be viewed or regarded any differently to Scotland wanting to shake off the beast that is the UK/Westminster?

Can't compute the difference, Craig. I think the SNP, if they were genuine Independence seekers, would actually support the retreat of the UK from the glue of the EU and then seek to use the very same arguments to retreat from the UK itself - IF they really wanted Independence, that is. And of course, pro-Brexiteers then couldn't offer much of an argument against such an idea, could they.

Why go to the SNP? Everyone know's they're a one issue entity. Better to run a minority Government and have another inevitable election a few months later. Or maybe give the Country a form of PR? Nah. Why do something sensible?

Sadly, I think you're right (in the short term for certain) in that more Scots will move more towards the independence camp. Then again, they think the sun shines out of Nicola's rear end.

Just out of interest, when do you think the SNP are going to use their devolved tax raising powers? Or would that paint them in the wrong light, do you think?

After so many incompetent Westminster governments I think it would take Pol Pot to take control of the SNP to paint it in a wrong light. As for devolved tax powers - who knows? Independence will come at a price but a price absolutely worth paying. I am under no illusions about how tough things will be but lets not kid ourselves that post-Brexit (still in the union) that life is going to be anything but tough. The options are a tough few years in a newly independent Scotland or a tough few years still under Westminster rule and no self-governance. A no brainer.

A copious amount of unionist backing media outlets there. I would expect no different. That there is unionist brain-washing Trussman right there.

The only brain-washing is that which you're demonstrating my friend.

Once more - SNP ever going to use its devolved tax raising powers do you think? You know, the sort of thing that might actually be required to continue payment for all that free stuff they bang on about north of the Border?

Thinking about it, these conversations are utterly pointless. No-one changes their views, or even considers there might be problems with them, as a result. Have a good one up in Utopia...

It is not currently solvable. nobody wants to work with the Tories and I can't see JC working well with anyone outside of his acolytes.

What nonsense, I haven't been conned. Leave.EU and Vote Leave played zero part in my decision to vote against the EU.

I've been against the UK's membership of the EU since around 2010/2011, years before the referendum was announced.

As an aside, Arron Banks is still an innocent man, and the beginning of an investigation does nothing to change that fact.

Used to have 2 banks down my way. Both gone now. Gained a foodbank though.
Half as many pubs. Proper post offices closed. Had a care home. That got demolished. Land sold off at a bargain price. Posh flats now. Mentioned it to a council employee recently. She said "we're not allowed to talk about it".

Almost forgot. Cop shop gone too. A pair of houses now. Guess we don't need a cop shop as there aren't any raucous darts teams, skittles teams and pool teams to keep in order.

"Where's Duty?"

"He's round the back of the bike sheds reading the UKIP manifesto, sir. He's got a picnic blanket, a hamper stuffed full of pork pies and cheddar cheese and a flask filled with lashings of ginger beer and he keeps mumbling something about "the sound of leather on willow" and the blitz, sir."

"And why aren't you with him, superfly?"

"Coz my mother said to stay away from him, sir."

Life was a lot better when kids lived in fear of physical assault from the people tasked with taking care of them. Nowadays we criticise certain foreign countries for taking a similar approach.

Either way it's corporal punishment. I'll see you in Strasbourg.

It seems a deal is sorted...

All is left is to see if enough Labour vote it down in the hope of a People vote..

Blair has written strongly for voting against today and these are the Blairite Mps May will be looking to.

Anyone else thought it seemed a bit off that Aaron Banks was on Andrew Marr show, like any regular political guest, despite being under investigation over the Leave campaign funding by National Crime Agency?

Lots of people.

I think there would be more trust if we thought that Banks would get a hard time from Marr.

Innocent until proven guilty. He should be free to do whatever interviews he likes as he still an innocent person; being investigated does nothing to alter this.

And Arron Banks can't really win. For months he has faced accusations of dodging questions about Russia, foreign funding and all the rest of it. Now he actually answers questions about these matters, in a non-stage controlled interview, and the same people whinge about how he shouldn't be allowed to do it.

He's innocent until proven guilty according to the law. That doesn't mean he's an "innocent person".

OK

It's a stunt well practiced.

So this Aaron Banks has a big bad Russia factor hovering over him too?

These pesky Ruskies get everywhere.  Didn't James Bond supposedly take care of those guys decades ago and moved on to Climate Change Terrorists?

BTW, where is the old favourites these days?  The British and American and Israeli and Chinese secret services?  Where do they get to in all these European Brexity and American Election shows?
Anyone else taking foreign money to fund their anti-Brexit movements?

It's crazy isn't it, all these conspiracy theories. They'll be accusing Labour members of anti-Semitism before long. Or Philip Green of sexual misconduct.

Yeah, and they'll even get round to claiming the entire Brexit movement was all choreographed by an army of Russian bots someday...believe me Wink

What it means is that we give him the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise. We treat him as an innocent person and allow him the same privileges that befit an innocent person, including him being allowed to go on television and be interviewed.

Craig Mackinlay is currently undergoing trial for the shenanigans in South Thanet. But we still presume him to be innocent, and that means he is still allowed to serve as a Member of Parliament and go through his business in society as he pleases.

Watched a video about Brexit yesterday...Ten Brexiteer Cabinet ministers saying that a Custom's union would be staying in Europe and a traitorous slap in the face of the British people..

8/10 are still in the Cabinet and supporting May's plan for an indefinite Custom's Union..

Got to giggle..

Agree with this. Fed up with unsubstantiated rumours being thrown around left, right and centre.

Quite right. But that doesn't mean he's innocent. It means he's innocent until proven guilty.
