    Because England is one of financial centres of the world with the skills, expertise and experience in finance?

    Not for much longer. They'll find the bulk of their trade is soon to be rerouted to an undecided destination within the EU'S.

    95% of our business sells to England not the EU.

    Goes for most Scottish Businesses - England are by far our biggest trading partners not the EU.
    95% of our business is exported via England. Doesn't mean were dealing with England.

    last RBS group accounts.... 87,000 employees, 23,000 of which are uk based. Of the 23 they are spread across Ulster bank, williams and Glynn, Natwest and Coutts.

    As the group is clearly a worldwide operation the reality is that it's not going to do something (or not do it) if it's going to impact on their costs.
    The reasons for moving a bank's operations are significantly more complex than simply cost. And anyway, I think the discussion was about where the HQ is. Personally I don't give a stuff where the HQ is, I'm more interested in where the jobs are, and the quality of those jobs. Regardless of what RBS does in relation to Scotland, it's a certainty that most financial services companies in London are busy working out where they need to base their operations in order to minimise the potentially negative impacts of Brexit on them. London (the City) is going to suffer big time as a result of Brexit.

    And while I'm here, I watched BBCQT last night. An unusually balanced panel, I thought, barring the Tory plant in the audience. I was not surprised, but I was dismayed to see the two Tory panellists telling us what life would be like after Brexit. "It will be ok", and "you won't notice the difference". Airheaded vacant soundbites based on feeling, not knowledge. God help us all.

    Damn. Just realised this is the Indyref thread. Sorry.

    The Deficit Scotland runs in its economy and the over all size of GDP would surely weaken our currency.
    Which currency is this?

    Otoh, our probable current account surplus vs the UK's even larger deficit would be in our favour. Your second point about overall size is nonsense, cf. Switzerland, Norway, etc.

    Ruth Davidson's suggested date for another referendum works for me:

    There will be nothing left of Scotland by then. It will all have been given away in EU deals, or sold to the Americans.
    Of course, this is the Tory plan.

    Here's an idea. Put forward some positive arguments as to why the Scottish people should vote Tory? Try to do this without mentioning the SNP and lets see how far you get.

    So not something new the Tories are proposing then. Not worth voting for a party that is imitating the policies of others, just vote for the originators of the policy

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    We're allowed to join in some time. This march was planned over a year ago FYI.

    It must be galling for the Unionists, when the Yes movement can put 25,000 on the streets of Glasgow whilst the SNP are out canvassing.

    Inclusiveness is all we ask. Other marches can do one.

    Nothing to do with party's, it's a movement. Some MPs were asking people to campaign on the door step instead of going on this March.. Stewart Mcdonald in particular which I certainly wasn't happy about . Grass roots own this movement not any party.

    Good stuff but I love the 'more progressive view towards independence line'. What on earth does that mean?

    That'll be that then for indyref2.

    Fully expect Sturgeon to shelve the plans now - SNP voters in 2015 who were convinced a second referendum was off the cards clearly voting tactically to send a message. Ironically the beneficiaries are the Conservatives who put us in this mess in the first place with that ****ing EU referendum.

    Will be interesting to see how Davidson and Dugdale fare now that they've got what they wanted.

    I don't see how tbh.

    Brexit is the only thing that has put it back on the table. If the SNP wimp out from following through on their promise, there may not be any comparable circumstances that put it back on the table for a very very long time.

    Sturgeon has to follow through on this, she has no choice.

    The 2nd Indy Ref will still happen.

    SNP headquarters will be busy reworking the strategy as we speak.
