    It's logic. Scotland will be a new country with a new currency and the SNP is considered very left wing. It would have a low credibility.
    By ignorant folk. The SNP are not really 'left-wing', they are really a centrist party who lean left socially but actually have right leaning economic policies. Remember the SNP have extended a hand of warmth to corporations by saying in an independent Scotland they would lower corporation tax in order to garner investment and job opportunities.

    Scotland isn't some backwater third world nation, it's a wealthy European nation. It wouldn'y go into free fall as an independent but would take at least 5-10 years to build itself up, especially as a triple AAA accredited nations.

    Also bare in mind, Scotland exports alot which is very good for your currency - it means you have reserves of foreign currency which is important economically (hence why China is beginning to reign supreme).

    I think it is for the best. Scotland is on a different path politically to England. The last vestiges of the U.K. are beginning to unravel.

    Just has England has said it can work with Europe without being tied to a union, so to can Scotland with England - I hope.

    Lol why don't you guys be more optimistic? We can export more with the weaker pound. Also, we can be independent again and not be restricted by one random people from the EU government. Leaving won't be bad for the economy.
    Obviously. No international companies are going to decide to leave the UK or not choose us in the future because we no longer offer them access to the single market.

    Everyone loves the UK, they'll just throw money at us if we ask nicely.

    Just don't give one? That sense of democracy.
    They already had one two years ago. Why should Sturgeon get to have another go, because she didn't get the result she wanted?

    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.
    It hasn't even been a day yet and this is already a complete fail. Not only that, we need to find a new prime minister by October. Daniel Hannan is even now taking back the claim that he stated leaving the EU will reduce immigration? So all of this for nothing! We've been played.
    After Scotland and Ireland leave Britain, we'll realise sovereignty means nothing without our neighbouring countries. People were warned. Now those who wanted to leave are quiet, regretting the decision. If we want to rejoin, it will take years also.
    We will end up leaving, while still being subject to the same exact problems but also losing Scotland and Ireland.Leavers, are you hearing that? You voted to leave for NOTHING. The same people who gave you promises are currently in denial and now our part of Britain is wanting to leave. We're screwed. Cameron was right.

    less restrictions? i think you mean less rights? The EU upheld fundamental individual rights such as the right to work, the right to property, thr right against poverty, the right to freedom and expression.
    and dont even say we will have a british bill of rights like the US cause that doesnt work
    the 2nd amendment has caused widespread gun crime. as seen in Orlando
    the 3rd amendment isnt relevant for a modern society it was created in 1791

    You need factories to export. British industry has almost vanished.

    They will. We are the fifth largest economy. We're doing very well and can do even greater things now.

    And why should we have our rights decided by people we didn't elect? Only our government should decide on rights.

    The people voted for sovereignty. Not 'idiots'. We need to be an independent country and have independence.

    Because obviously if you have to choose between the 5th largest and the largest, you'll choose the 5th largest...

    I find it crazy that people think we somehow got to 5th purely by our own steam with zero collaboration or assistance along the way due to being a member of the EU.

    Well, the proof of the pudding will be in the eating, as they say. I suppose we'll see. I hope you're right.

    They are idiots if they think that an abstract concept sovreignty outweighs the concrete fact that we will suffer economically AND Scotland/Northern Ireland could leave.

    Leavers is this what you wanted? I hope you're all glad now. Scotland if you want to leave Britain, do what's best for you. I'll join you as our economy is already a fail.

    If you think the economy is more important than our freedom and democracy, why don't you go to China? They have a good economy there.

    spot on
    Yes we were the 5th largest economy when we were in the EU, when 50% of our trade went to the single market not now we have left the EU we certainly arent gonna be a large economy for many years. also banking is our main industry which has now suffered an incredibly damaging blow. watch the banks move elsewhere and the UK's economic status decline

    Stupid, self-contradictory statement, if you care so much about freedom why don't you go and live in the USA?

    You can't just go live in the USA because, guess what, they can control immigration there.

    And also I am British so I want to stay in my country and make it better.
