  1. I class myself as British and we are officially British citizens. Britain has been together before most of Europe even existed and the US as we know it. While each parts keeps its nations name they have been intertwined to create Britain.
  2. They are comparable many us states have similar localised powers to Scotland, similar size economies and similar problems. They are still legally Scottish, Scottish leaders in charge of the uk= Scottish influence and power at the head of government just because they weren't nationalists doesn't mean they didn't pursue Scottish policies . The only reason they are having referendums is due to Blair's devolution. How can you say Scotland hasn't been represented in government, when they have had such an impact on uk politics for the past few decades and gained such power? I have seen no evide
  3. They were not pointless comparisons as it shows the federal like system the us has compared to the uk nations. Blair and Brown were both Scottish and Scottish mp so it is a valid point that Scotland has had a powerful impact on the highest office of the uk. Yes I agree about the potential " dire economic" consequences of brexit but you are ignoring the "dire consequences" to the Scottish economy of independence? Access to the European single market and the world in general is minuscule compared to the trade with rUK and so aren't the all independence supporters juvenile for ignoring the
  4. What alternative facts, I'm the one using actual facts and numbers to make a point, not just an opinion that can't not be proven. I have always looked at independent analysis and surveys to ensure I am factually correct when I am discussing anything. Labour MPs had the whip but still rebelled? So if there was political will the brexit bill could have been defeated but mps have made up thier own minds to follow the results of the referendum. Yes I understand a they voted to remain but as part of the United Kingdom they have to take the good and the bad, you can't just throw your to
  5. The point still remains that every country has the government that some parts of the population don't like and feel unreprensted but thats a democracy. California has power like a devolved Scotland so should they break away from the US just because they don't like this president or how they state votes isn't always the same as the winning president? It's only been since 2010 the SNP have had a majority so they always sent Labour or Tory MPs and for the last 100 years we have had Labour or Conservative governments. People are voting for the SNP not just for independedence a poll in a few years
  6. I voted remain for your information. Yorkshire has a similar population to Scotland shall we just have every county breakaway as it's not fully in charge/represented in the national parliament? The union is over 400 years old, there have been government's of all types yet just because they disagree with his government they think independence is the best option? We just has 13 years of Scottish Prime Ministers should I have kicked off and demanded English independence? Scotland has a strong voice in the commons if it joins with Labour is could easily affect ecominc policy etc but instead it jus
  7. It's not even clear Scotland could become part of the EU as Spain officials have repeatidly threatened to veto any prospect due to Catalonian risks. I respect her electoral succurss but she wants to have "her cake and eat it", the SNP have offered no vision independent Scotland that isn't built on debt or imaginary money. They complain about being run by London yet they are the 3rd largest party in the parliament. Why does she prefer to be ruled over by Brussels where Scottish meps have no influence compared to our U.K. parliament? This whole new independence debate is now centred on maintain
  8. My figures are from a database which I believe came from the national office for statistics originally. Alcohol related hospital admissions have risen 115% over 10 years, while 48% of a&e admissions are discharged with no treatment or advise only. While some of this figure includes people who should have rightly gone have gone to a&e if they had symptons suggesting something potentially harmful; it still shows millions of people are going the hospitals unnecessarily which is causing a lot of the problems that have been seen in recent years. This is where a lot of the extra funding has
  9. For one unlike her I don't just make things up, I'm just using the factual information to give some balance to the thread
  10. On the contary the NHS wouldn't exist if it wasn't for foreign workers, they are the backbone of the service and have been for decades so you can forget about labelling me as 'vile'. So where is all this extra money comping from, taxing the rich that will then move abroad, a new poll tax so we all pay more and everyone kicks off ? Out of the entire health budget £8.7bn is going to private institutions, and there has been private involded thoughout Labour governments to. The government can only do so much but if people won't pay more taxes or use the service better it can't survive. There is no
  11. Come on the NHS/health budget has increased from £50bn 15 years ago to £140bn now, 175% increase ( since 2010 spending has increased by £25bn so the government is investing in the area) If more money is spent the country will just enter semi bankruptcy as we run out time on our debt and where will the NHS be then? It will no longer be free everyone will have to pay for everything on a day to day basis and the standards will collapse. People are using the NHS when they shouldn't or don't need to, e.g. alcohol related injuries in a&e, getting free prescriptions when they don't need them. Peo
  12. They seem to be saying it's due to mental health, nothing linked to terrorism/Isis but that could change
  13. I had expected Boris would be given that job, I can see why May did this. She had to have a leading brexiter in a high role, and someone who is known world wide. While I don't personally love Boris, he is known across the world as this relaxed, slightly 'eccentric ' character but well liked. So when we are sending him to talk with India/China etc for post eu trade deals he will be warmly received and would help Britain secure better/more trade deals.
  14. She has the longest serving home secatary for 100 years, a position that usually is the death of most mp's careers and usually ends in scandal. So it shows May is a efficient and hardworking person who seeks stability and discipline in government.
  15. I only know the basics of US politics as from the uk but I do love Hillary I just feels she deserves it and she has the best knowledge/experience of anyone. I don't really want to get into a deep discussion/argument if people don't like her as I don't know enough to argue. But from the u.s perspective why has she gone from being seen as automatically getting the nomination to now having a real challenger ? Is she seen as too establishment ? Don't like her as a women? The email/Libya negatives ? Not relating to normal Americans ? everything from the uk I've read so far about both rep/dem has b
