It should not be a blow to Boris Johnson, as the result was obvious as soon as Scotland declared itself. Nicola Sturgeon is always talking about leaving the UK. Let her and her ungrateful compatriots go. The first time that devolution is on the cards, they jump at it like dogs at a bone.
What does the UK lose? We have to go to British Summer Time because of their complaints. We can stop doing that. And they can only leave when they pay back the £300 million it took to build their Parliament. How many of them spend time in London instead? Raking in expenses, probably.
And North Sea oil is decreasing year on year. The rest of the UK is their biggest market.
Why hasn’t Scotland thought through their position?
The decision to bring a political issue to court is in itself unlawful. The State, the Church and Justice operate independently in our democracy and maybe it’s unwritten, but it is understood that one shall not interfere with the others. People keep talking about a constitutional crisis. If there is one, it is of Scotland’s making.
The result of Scottish interference with our democracy was a given before they started. Scottish judges presiding over their own threat to a UK Prime Minister is a conflict of interest. If anybody, it should have been presided over by, say Northern Ireland, where the people also voted to leave.
IMHO the Scots should be given their marching orders or a sincere apology to Boris Johnson. By whingeing they have taken our eye off the Brexit ball. No-one will thank them for that.
I suggest, with no legal knowledge, that the Scots voting for themselves is wrong and the following result, blindingly obvious. Boris Johnson should demand an apology. There can be no appeal when the original decision is illegal.
Give us strength and give Boris strength to ignore Scotland. Who will have a hissy fit first? All the more reason for having nothing to do with them until after Brexit.
