Not really....

Its windy and there is plenty of space to put up turbines.

Whats hypocritical about profiting from wind, wave, nuclear and oil at the same time?
I thought the SNP were ****ting themselves about climate change? Don't you think they should leave fossil fuels in the ground if they are that serious about it?

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear oh dear.

The SNP's politics are left-of center. It's a "national" in the sense that it wants to bring about Scotland's seperation from Britain, but if you consider the SNP as a nationalist party, what about UKIP, Plaid, Tory (with that one nation Tory party), and even Labour who all constantly appeal to the nation. Every party has to be "national" in its outlook, or it wouldn't have success outside of a small region.

The SNP can not be termed a nazi party. At all.
Regretfully, none of those parties you have mentioned wish to take England out of this parasitical union with Scotland, Wales and NI.

The SNP are as nationalist as they come. (civically)

Because it gives a wildly inaccurate impression. I'm not saying Powell = Nazi, but he was certainly a lot closer than the SNP. I don't "fear" being seen as a nazi because it's downright absurd, I'm just saying calling the SNP national socialists (which blatantly refers to the Nazi party) is petty and ridiculous.
Absolute *******s. Offensive and insulting *******s at that. If Powell was similar to a Nazi he would not have voted against the death penalty, against discriminating against homosexuals (of which he was one as he was known to have had at least one homosexual love in his life) and would not have been advocating the freedom to abort for pregnant mothers. If he was a Nazi he would not have rose from Private to Brigadier in the space of the Second World war in order to fight it. People like you are a stain on the educational establishment.

Try and open your mind before you sprout your bigotry.

Also, if we are that much of a burden on the rest of the UK, why did three main party leaders trip over themselves to try and convince us to stay?

You have to keep in mind were trying to reason with a person who has said; "Nigel Farage will beast", "Halal is a disgusting practise" and "every one deserves a second chance". Well from today's performance, we can see the latter is not true.

Would it make it worse if I said I did my undergrad at Cambridge, and now do postgrad at Cambridge studying history?
Firstly, I do not really care.

Secondly, I would very much doubt that you are studying at The University of Cambridge, considering that you have very clear racist tendencies.

I literally said he was not a nazi. I literally ****ing said that. Did you even read it? But I guess you now understand how absurd and offensive it is to compare almost any party in the UK today to the nazis. Don't you dare call me a bigot though, you have made it abundantly clear that you are one of the most small minded and bigoted individuals it has ever been my misfortune to speak to.

You said he is similar. "I'm not saying Powell = Nazi, but he was certainly a lot closer than the than the SNP" - which is complete and utter ****.

I never said the SNP were nazis, I said they were nationalist socialists. Which they are.

I would say the exact same to you.

Plaid does. What about UKIP? Is that nationalistic, using your same logic? And I guess you think the EDL, Britain First and the BNP are not 'as nationalist as they come'?

As a someone who allegedly studies at Cambridge, I trust you know that that the Nazi-party saw itself as a "third way" between communism and democratic-liberalism, incorporating elements of both, with high government control? No?

On the political compass (with a horizontal communist/liberalism economical axis, and a vertical authoritarian/libertarianism axis), the Nazi Party occupied the space which was flat in the middle horizontally, but at the most extreme top (most authoritarian.) That's where the BNP is basically. Any guesses as to why? The SNP is in the lower upper-left quadrant (some what socialist, but with such limited government authority, vis a vis the Nazi party you try to link them with.



Also, the SNP did it with a referendum, in the most democratic way possible, when all of the other parties refused to believe them. Through your linkage of 'national socialism' which is frankly false, you are associating them with one of the most militarist, racist, and most evil ideologies to have ever gained traction in Europe...and they are most certainly not 'as nationalistic as they come.'

One reason why the SNP is so popular, despite losing the independence referendum, is because they OFFERED, and HAD a referendum. As a party, it proved its democratic chops, and it was a historical vote which would not have arisen had the Labour party been in power in Scotland.

I have looked at your previous posts, and your views on Islam are verging on extreme.

One more thing, when you said that you study in Cambridge, it would not surprise me if you were in fact referring to Anglia Ruskan University.
