    Btw how old is the Highland Tradition? Kilts, tartan, the old songs - all the Braveheart nonsense?

    Despite what you might find online, the ‘Highland Tradition’ is largely invented. The kilt itself was invented by an English industrialist as a form of factory dress. The traditional ballads are mostly from Celtic Ireland and most tartan is from Victorian times

    A deal is crucial, even a poor one, but the negative effects of a hard brexit on top of covid will play into the SNP's hands come election time irrespective. They will have plenty of ire to draw on.

    I imagine being in the single market is a massive positive and all that you produce already meets EU regs. I was reading that if the UK drop out of the EU then goods with protected status will lose that protection. The market for Scotch, for example, will literally be open to all comers anywhere.

    When you weigh up all the pros and cons I honestly don't know where you come out but a case can be made I would think.

    They'll be a bit more expensive in a few months but you'll be able to buy cheap british knockoffs soon.

    We will belong to no markets though, EU or UK.
    We have no idea of the basics, currency, lender of last resort, central bank, pensions and an almost limitless list of other things.
    There will need to be a withdrawal agreement from the UK to be negotiated, trade agreements with everyone else, and all this at tge same time.
    And thats along with setting up new ministries and govt departments.
    That's the bits the SNP don't want to talk about.
    If brexit is complicated, scexit is a nightmare. And a bloody eye-wateringly expensive one.

    I realise that, but it wasn't meant to be. I thought you were being sarcastic and in agreement with me.
    See it More a comment on that's the kind of "half truth" and positive spin farage and his ilk put on brexit, never any mention of the downsides.
    In my opinion the biggest impact brexit will have on a possible scexit is the Indy sides adoption UKIP style propaganda.

    Oh I was being sarcastic and agreeing with you. Still though no need to stoop as low as calling someone Farage ;)
