Get them to fuck honestly.

Feel like spewing every time I see another BREXIT advert, pishing our money up the wall on propaganda for their pointless right wing project. APRant

The first couple years of this is going to be fucking horrendous.

There’s the potential situation of Scottish businesses having to close because of new regulations then us going independent and back into the EU. The damage will be done by then for these people though.

Wonder what the state of the festival will be like, loads of people are panicking about what it means for touring performers/musicians and the staff and equipment that comes with that. Big performers will be fine but it’s the up and coming guys that will likely suffer.

Loads of shops can easily sell online, and it's as easy as sticking the parcel in the post with the rest of your sales. Now though. Mccringe Will likely put a fair number out of business.

I think the visa situation could prove to be a nightmare. It might depend on who wins next election and how far the tories continue to pander to the extreme, but with the likes of Priti Patel at the helm it doesnt look good.

Estimated 29k jobs lost in Scotland due to Brexit already. I'm not sure how skewed these statistics are.

Quote:3. Barring other obvious explanations businesses that were doing okay but experienced a significant slowdown after the Brexit vote are deemed to have been impacted by Brexit.

I'm sure its perfectly impartial and fair.

Heh

You can support Brexit for whatever reason - maybe long term you think it is going to be brill, but short-term you surely you aren’t denying job losses and a shrunken economy?

We have an elderly population with no one in this country wanting to do menial jobs for pennies. You have to admit that the economy will contract?

At least In a post- Indy world Scotland would set immigration policy based on the needs of the country rather than on identity/ethnic purity grounds.

I'll be roundly ignoring some Remain obsessive on Twitter who is deciding himself what job losses are attributed to. He's clearly desperate to put it on Brexit regardless.

I accept there will be job losses. I agree long term it's worth it. Much like when I voted Yes in 2014. You can't make decisions like these and have no downside.

How many job losses are okay for Scottish independence? You'll weigh up the positives like anybody else and vote accordingly.

It’s all to do with how much your willing to sacrifice to get the outcome you want.
