Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The most repeated argument against a "Yes" vote in the 2014 referendum on Scottish independence was that if Scotland went independent it would lose EU membership, and that appeared to persuade many in s close vote. Scots then voted overwhelmingly "Remain" and Brexit would almost certainly result in a majority in Scotland now to favour independence. That would in due course lead to nuclear weapons being removed from Scottish soil, which would be the one positive outcome from this unholy mess.
