    Don't get your pants in a twist just because you made a pathetic point by ranking an economy in nominal terms. It seems like you need a lesson on why we have PPP GDP and why it's more accurate in stating economic performance than unadjusted nominal data.

    Bottom line is India produces the 3rd largest amount of goods and services. Period. If you reply with a further argument you are mentally incapable of accepting facts.
    Ok, so what? If your exporting cheap goods then it doesn't change the size of your economy

    How does Scotland leave without a referendum that they need permission from Westminster to take place and they won't get.

    Good luck giving any other answer than they can't lol

    they aren't going to stick around and westminster could potentially be overridden if scotland asked to join the eu on its own if they helped them to get independence and cameron would still listen to europe even if we were out

    So you think Westminster would vote at least 326 for Scotland to have another independence referendum after just having one?

    So how do you know whether we should leave or not because it doesn't make sense to say that no one knows definitely if things will get better or worse and then say lets leave?
    Its based on whats important to you and your philosophy and to a certain extent what you feel is the likely result. Saying with definite certain its just wrong though.

    The SNP have been saying for some time that an EU exit would create new circumstances in which it would be not unreasonable to expect the Scots to reconsider their position.

    If there is sufficient outrage up north, then pressure will be applied. If Westminster says no purely because it fears the result, then expect civil disobedience, protests, demonstrations, and gradually worse public order up there. Over a period of years.

    I find it puzzling that eurosceptics don't argue that it will be incredible. Surely, if the EU is destroying the UK, getting out of it won't mean that "nothing happens" but rather that all sorts of wonderful things will happen.

    They will simply say you just had one it was decided for a generation you knew that you voted in.

    The end.

    They can scoff all they like as its all they can do about it.

    No not forever the key word is a generation. I'd expect it to be at least 20 years

    Why would it?
    Large effect on UK trade could have an impact on the credit rating for example

    Indeed but there is no large change to trade after a leave vote as we won't leave until negotiations are finished

    I think there will be more people affected than you think. Uncertainity immediately after a vote to leave would spook the markets and cause the pound to go down making imports like oil more expensive. We have already seen that at the petrol station with petrol going pass the £1 mark when the pound went down against the dollar.

    The biggest problem is if a few large companies moved from the UK or reduced their investments here, there will be job losses and its not clear if the remaining companies can pick up the slack. There will be an incentive for the EU to favour EU companies for business and big iprojects like building new roads that would put UK based companies at a disadvantage.

    The temptation would be for UK companies to move to the EU or at least move a large chuck of their business to the EU but because the UK would not be in the EU, the employees have no automatic right to move with their company to the EU.
    The same argument was dished out 16 years ago with regard to UK not being part of the Euro.

    Last I checked the very German and Japanese car factory that everyone claimed would pack up and leave because UK wasn't in the Eurozone are still open and running.
