    They had one 2 years ago that was billed as "once in a generation", so its a different situation.



    It took decades to get another referendum, 40 years or so. I have no objection about giving them another referendum, just not so soon. If I was Scottish, I would actually vote leave, even though it makes no financial sense. It is just not right to have another referendum 2, 3, 4 or 5 years after they one.
    I can almost guarantee it will happen in the next 3 years (max). It did take a while to get that referendum but now you've forced us out of the EU, which we're quite frankly not happy with. I also disagree on your economic assessment, any loss of GDP would be minimal, we wouldn't lose much from leaving the UK.

    When you look at the voter demographics, the majority of 18-24 year olds voted to remain. It's mainly the older generation who have been more susceptible to the immigration scare tactics of the leave campaign that have voted to exit.
    It's a shame for our generation.
    Most of the older people who voted out did so mainly because they hated being dictated to by Brussells not because of immigration.

    It's the younger working class who were/are badly affected by mass immigration.

    Just don't give them one, simple. Or agree to do it but in 5 years time, by which time they will be used to non-EU life and see that everything is fine.
    Lol at the hypocrisy. Democracy and sovereignty when it comes to the EU, but not democracy and sovereignty when it comes to Scotland. You've outdone yourself, really.

    That was BEFORE the UK voted out, while Scotland itself voted in. No the same at all to the previous referendum.

    I'm not sure if you're right but I hope so. I think many English people have more than enough of the Scots and would rather like it if they went their own way.

    Woke up with Brexit...

    Markets are falling, Pound is falling to the lowest value in more than 40 years!

    Reports say Northern Ireland and Scotland will vote to leave the UK.
    Markets will prefer to trade with EU rather than UK and EU already reported they won't negotiate with UK a trade deal because "out means out".

    Well done everyone... Well done Brits, today will start the ENGLISH independence day. Good luck with jobs - good luck because we will start getting the jobs the emigrants took, such as construction workers, McDonalds, etc.

    Good luck to us all... the future won't be bright and a recession will come.
    "Good luck with jobs - good luck because we will start getting the jobs the emigrants took, such as construction workers, McDonalds, etc."

    What a pretentious ****. Just because these jobs are too good for you, it doesn't mean they're too good for Britons.

    Likewise No, but seriously we need to at least hold another referendum. The no campaign literally claimed that staying in the UK was the only way to secure Scotland's future membership of the EU. F*** you Alistair Darling you deceitful b*****d

    Ok, I will refrain from answering this. In order not to provoke another assassination of an MP.

    Can't believe we have decided to listen to the likes of Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and millions of uninformed voters who have no clue about the impact this will have on millions of others, who were voting under the premise we will gain back our 'British Sovereignty.' Truth is it has now been replaced with the uncertainty of political and financial instability.


    Yeah, why listen to the Oxford educated former Mayor of London, he's certainly uninformed and doesn't know what he's talking about.

    In 2014 Boris Johnson wrote an article about how leaving the EU would solve none of our problems. It's political posturing, he doesn't care about you or the EU.

    I didn't base my vote on what he thinks, I'm just saying that dismissing his comments because he doesn't agree with you is repugnant.

    Which expert reports? Every economic organisation of any significance predicted we'd be permanently worse off leaving the EU.
