Scottish independence could have long-term benefits even if the country faced immediate costs, experts at the London School of Economics have concluded.

A study of the effects of Scotland leaving the UK found that the effect would be more 'nuanced' than previous analysis has suggested, and could be more akin to the 'Velvet Divorce' between Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

The authors concluded: "Scotland’s historic economic performance has been strong, which bodes well for a small, open and independent Scotland.

"With modest population growth alongside good GDP growth, supported by stable participation in international trade, it seems Scotland is in a far better initial condition than either the Czech or Slovak Republics, and can therefore expect similar (if not better) post-independence outcomes."

They added: "Considering Scotland has all the necessary machinery in place to become an independent state, we see no obvious reasons why Scotland would not succeed economically if it were to do so, especially if achieved within the bounds of the law.

"Although our findings might be controversial to some, we hope to show that Scottish independence, while not inevitable, is far more nuanced a matter than many have claimed. There exist several options worth pursuing for the parties to this debate."

You think there'll be a "velvet" divorce?

This while setting up a border before a hard border and EU controls in the event we rejoin the EU?

I think the English people will think it strange if whoever is the gov of the day act the aggressor like the EU did - after all, we are costing the RoUK money, right? Unlike Brexit where UK was a significant contributor.

It's one thing giving Johnny foreigner a bloody nose but most English folk will have ties to Scotland. It remains to be seen.

The EU don't care too much for Scotland per se but they would take great pleasure to GIRFUY England. For example I could see them subsidise the overnight Rosyth / Zeebrugge link or similar so that it is pegged to the same as Dover / Calais + free cabin thrown in. Not that the people of Kent would care.

A matter of time before Scottish Labour break away from London.

The Blairite faction's almost completely gone Lamont & co.

Sarwar's heart is with a more federal UK.

I reckon we're looking at a coalition.

Not the kid on one with Sturgeon & the Greens.
