Details of Scots Indy
Young people support Scots indy by 75 %,
making Scots indy inevitable.
They see little if any benefit to the union.
Currency. We must have a Scots pound right away and run both currencies side by side,
Trade: 60% England, 19% EU, 20% elsewhere.
Ireland’s trade was mainly with England, now its mainly to the EU.
The union of 1707 was a trading treaty. England went back on this deal and has therefore illegally broken this treaty multiple times.
Scotland population 5.46 (8%)
Wales population 3.15 (4.7%)
Northern Ireland population 1.89 (2.8%)
England population 56m (84%)
Therefore England is way too big for any kind of radical federalism a proposed by the Labour party. At the time of union Edinburgh was the second biggest city in Britain and Scotland’s population was 1m England’s 5 m.
Scotland has for centuries had stronger links to Europe than England and voted by 62% to stay in the EU. Scotland has its own distinctive culture, history and language and is the oldest nation in Europe.
Federalism. This population chart shows so clearly WHY any kind of federalism will never work in the disunited and over-centralised UK state.

YES Challenge - https://yeschallenge.scot
Reformation is a crucial part of Scots history, and helped to lay the roots of the rise of the west. by making personal responsibly a virtue.
And the interpretation of the bible by ourselves, rather than a priest. This led to improved education in which Scotland led the way, with its university traditions. To take responsibly for our work ethic, self regulation and perseverance. Our own agency.
The novel and poets took up this idea also. That not only kings and queens mattered, but that the lives of ordinary people had an effect on the backbone of society too. As empire has declined, the reasons for the union has disappeared also. Scotland sees the many other newly indy nations of recent times across the world and wonders why not us too? I watched all these small nations enter the Glasgow stadium at the Commonwealth Games 2014 Glasgow, and wondered too.
