    In the context of her media personality protection describing her as a Unionist shill is appropriate.

    It's because it's a game to them.

    Ref OP-

    No Thanks.

    First Indy Ref already divided the nation as much as I've ever seen.

    And as someone in the north, whether its Westminster or Edinburgh, the money made up here all flows south anyway...

    Maybe its time that money made up here didn't flow any further South than Gretna...

    That was before the Brexit vote. Now, their mind has almost certainly changed about that.

    To Frankfurt or Paris.

    That England will come to us cap in hand for energy supplies, water, gas, oil, food, etc? Complete turnaround to what most English think of Scotland (although it's a perpetuated myth put forward by English media but you get the message).

    Why would England go to Scotland when they are already buying these things from other nations? Or producing their own, afaik England actually produces a surplus of food and much of it is exported. Also England is building new nuclear power stations (while Scotland's are being decommissioned) and massive off-shore wind farms so will have energy sorted as well...

    Lets not forget Scotland joined the UK in the first place because it was broke!

    Funny how people think leaving the EU is bad, yet think Scottish Independence is good, leaving an even closer and more integrated union it would be a mess of even greater proportions than Brexit.

    I just don't know where to start with what is wrong with this. North Sea oil production is down more than half on its peak, and the price is also down by half on its peak. And Scotland has the smallest proportion of arable land of any part of the UK, so it won't be shipping food anywhere.

    So much wrong in all these posts
    A surplus of food yet begs off the public to contribute to food banks.
    The French are building 'our' power stations that happen to lie inside England. You can keep them we'll refashion the faslane subs to be little power stations.
    The whole country is dotted with wind farms. Offshore is just another geographic location with enough cons to have left it unfeasible for the last 20 years. Even now it takes a ballsy investment to do it.
    Not sure which figures you're quoting but the barrel prices are comparable to the price at the last referendum. Not to mention the massive haul found by BP which could last another 30 years.
    Who says all food must be grown from the land?
    Just take a look at the UKs top exports. Drive into the detail there, see what stands out...
