I am for it.  Unequivocally.

Scotland requires a nuclear arsenal for self-defense and to deter the imperialist, war-mongering regime to the south, which has already shown its contempt for international law in the toppling of many "rogue regimes" in the recent past, and whose current leader's religious convictions are disturbing in a modern, post-industrial society.

Actually, my guess is they'll continue their traditions and use it on themselves.

So long as they do it on a day the wind is blowing southwards, I'm fine with that outcome.

Makes sense to me laddie. If scots can be trusted with faster than light engines i suppose they can be trusted with nukes too.

NWOBHM doesn't make up for The Beatles.

Especially since without NWOBHM we'd all have been spared from ever having to listen to Metallica.

Good point.

And New Wave of British Heavy Metal, unless you guys invented that too.

I suppose. Never heard of the term before, which is when I usually assume the Dutch invented it and I'm usually right.

Iron Maiden is the best NWOBHM band.

I believe this is the best argument I have ever seen for encouraging the development of nuclear weapons.  :lulz:

Speaking as a one from Scotland, I find myself in a strange political position here. I really really dislike nationalism (with a passion,) but this will shake up the system and I like that idea.

In all honesty I can't see independence really changing the lives of normal people in any significant way but I'm starting to get bored with the current arrangement, and this could be a good opportunity to shake things up.
I would like to re-assure you all by taking this space to confirm that I don't actually exist.

The only French MP who could give a statement on Scotland leaving the UK was a former Labour Party reseacher, and the Scottish maritime border, which includes its oil assets, is apparently somewhere north of Dundee.

All I need to know: If Scotland is independent then the border becomes an international one, with checkpoints and passport control and shit, right?

If that's the case then I can make some coin smuggling goods and people across it. I'm all in favour. Otherwise - who gives a shit?

I'm up to my arse in Brexit Numpties, but I want more.  Target-rich environments are the new sexy.
