That creates an issue where Scots students having free university education prevents them from travelling and experiencing other countries and ways of life to an extent.

Unless they want to pay for it of course.
______________________________________

I think it was the UKs withdrawal from Erasmus that has hindered that, no?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The government has a fund in place to subsidise what was the Erasmus scheme.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
With much less funding.

Experts are saying because we are now not paying towards the fees of incoming students, foreign universities will have little incentive to cooperate with the Turing scheme.

Half-baked and half ersed
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Not a problem. Get independence and pay for it our fwcking selves

Or rejoin the EU who don’t want us anyway despite our pathetic flag waving .

And then of course there's the fact that nobody can go anywhere anyway.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Many EU member states have already said an Independent Scotland would be welcome to rejoin the EU.

Why not pay for it ourselves once we have full control over tax revenue?

I tend to agree, ginger . They’ll likely get the benefit of the doubt if they ever achieve it and form the first government but the fundamentalist vote could go elsewhere. Who’s to say they won’t just reinvent as ‘the’ centre left party assuming Labour continue to wither?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It’s all possible but I see them as managing to control the country now for 15 years and counting despite their abhorrent record on education and all things health.

Get the country independence and who is likely to shift them? It’ll be some time for sure and how much more damage will they do with far less money is my concern?

The Tories have a license to do almost as they want especially with emergency powers right now but they have a growing dissatisfaction from within that should prevent their worst excesses in more normal times. They’ve also something of an opposition albeit paltry.

The SNP have nothing to worry about. They can effectively do as they please. Change the voting system perhaps? Who knows?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The voting system in Scotland was changed for Scottish Parliamentary elections when the Parliament was set up. We don't operate first past the post up here as we have an element of proportional representation known as the additional member system.

That system makes it very difficult for any party to gain a majority. So, if the SNP do actually achieve that majority it will be because they have persuaded the majority of Scottish people to vote for them. Rather than the rather condescending and disrespectful view that somehow the SNP are sleep-walking the electorate into a banana republic.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think after the first independent Scottish parliament (which I think the SNP would carry) its anyone’s guess really. If folk recall we had rainbow and really “balanced” parliaments up until Iain Gray and the ideological opposition to independence from Scottish Labour versus the undoubted charisma of Alex salmond. Had Labour placed their “A” team in holyrood we may have continued to see a more balanced parliament.

The banana republic chat is cretinous.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

So who fwcking cares?

Banana republic it is

I just don't understand why anyone would make stuff up on the internet to make themselves look better.. end of the day as soon as you log off, you would surely start belittling yourself as you don't live up to your online persona.

Especially more of like this site, you've met heaps of the people you're talking to. Makes no sense to bullsh¡t as you'd be caught out in it within seconds

Quite spectacularly too if Jungle is any marker

The banana republic chat is ridiculous, not least because the folk using it rarely understand what it actually means.

A banana republic is used to mean a politically unstable country where the country is operated as a private commercial enterprise for the exclusive profit of the ruling class. It normally requires collusion between the state and favoured economic monopolies.

It's basically a servile oligarchy that is dependent on once resource (i.e. bananas) and that resource is exploited by the ruling classes to the detriment of the working classes who make up the majority of the population.

I don't even know why BJ wants to be in charge of part of a Union that utterly fooking despises him, he is about as welcome as Harvey Weinstein at a WI meeting north of the border.

He hates Scots and Scotland, he has previous for just that, wish he and his cronies would just fook off.

Let him rip the erse out of Northern England, Wales, and NI and he can leave us the fook alone to get on with it our way.

He could quite easily grant a 2nd referendum, as you attributed to earlier most English people don't give a fook, so I doubt he would get much backlash from the people, maybe from his cabinet but he gets the big job he can deal with that.

I think this is part of the problem, and why independence is wanted.

People want to have a bigger say in the decisions being made, and have their voices heard and listened to. If that doesn't happen, then there would be a mechanism to allow us to change the people making those decisions.

You've openly stated - and this isn't a criticism of you, but an observation - that it doesn't matter what the people of Scotland say or want, people that we never voted for will decide what happens.

Forget all the other arguments you're making - and I know that there are serious questions that would need answered - but that seems to be where a lot of people are at.

We've gone past the Kevin Bridges 'fvck it, mon we'll gie it a try - it'll be a laugh' to the 'if we're going to make a cvnt of it, at least let it be Scottish folk that make a cvnt of it that I can shout at a lot closer'.

Good point. I think that a big part of the Brexit argument was to take back control and decision making from a ‘distant’ government. Mmmmh?
