    Act of union 1707.

    that is another question but then again a minority government acted upon an advisory referendum by triggering article 50 to deliver brexit.
    Donít know the act of union well enough - but didnít that create a single unitary state ??

    anyway, Iím not trying to catch you out - was interested in your view...even as a pro indie minded individual..I donít see the Scottish Government with a mandate to do that, without another referendum..

    Y'know the whole currency thing is a complete red herring. The pound is derived from European currency and the only thing that belongs to England is the copyright on the £ sign. The pensions bit is fear mongering and the turnip bit is simply insulting! Scotlands people have a right to self determine and the thought of being saddled to those uber-unionist brit nationals down south, is frightening! A considerable amount of English people feel the same. We are a progressive country that is moving forward on a world stage highlighting the maturity of our nation. I am no indoctrinated xenophobe with fascist tendencies because of being feart of people from elswhere in this world!

    Article 50 vote was 498 to 114 - a majority of 384 MPs backing the bill. Both the Conservative Party and Labour Party backed the bill and the majority of 384 is, sadly, far from a minority position.

    I agree. A coup would be extremely problematic and likely lead to constant chaos and turmoil. Independence would most certainly have to be won from a democratic decisive vote by way of referendum as I'm certain the vast majority of reasoned civilised Scots would concur.

    It's still a minority government propped up by the DUP. Why these MPs decided to vote in the way they did is beyond me and reason.

    I'm not sure how many of the vast majority of Scots will remain reasonable given the state of affairs now.
