If Scotland is such a drain on the UK money why does Westminster fight so hard for Scotland to stay in the UK?

    Scotland is filthy rich in natural resources and has a considerably higher average IQ level, only thick Gammons believe it's a drain because they are trained to believe all foreigners are subhuman by Rupert Murdoch

    There is so much to lose. That's why Westminster is so desperate and why they not only interfered but lied during the last independence referendum campaign. They will fight tooth and nail to keep Scotland in the union.

    They don't particularly.  Because Scotland is such a drain on the UK money.  That is why we encouraged them to have a referendum in the first place, but they wouldn't co-operate and leave.    The SNP leadership are basically a fund-raising organisation like an Evangelist big tent rally, they can ignore all other responsibilities by deflecting public attention to their endless campaign for some sort of continuous 'rolling' referendum...

    Without Scotland in the Union, the UK loses another 10% of its economic bargaining power on the world stage. This is in addition to the 40% it lost with that ill-advised and ill-considered vote to leave the EU.  Just think about the defence implications with Scotland no longer part of the Union and opting for neutrality like Ireland. There is no guarantee that Scotland would want to continue wasting money on remaining a NATO member.  In any case the current set-up of the UK doesn't work; leaving the EU should have only been actioned on with the consent of all of the devolved administrations.  Boris, the tory leader who lost Scotland and began the balkanisation of Great Britain.

    You seem to have triggered some Gammons.  The truth is that the currently benefits both parties.  It remains to be seen if that will be the case post Brexit, where Scotland may be better of rejoining the larger union.

    It is for their own good. The thick jocks are incapable of running themselves.

    That is a very good question, of which I have no logical answer!
