now , you're threatening not to sell electricity to England, were is the money coming from to make up for that

I know .... we'll increase taxes for the "well off", that'll cover it, or maybe just use the national credit card , after all nobody uses money these days

they really have no clue about running a country ....(well maybe about running it into the ground)

I despair

As the song goes we’re ‘packing plastic’ and the ‘well off’ will be redefined as anyone who has a job or pension.

It appears to be from a former secretary, not Nic herself, is it not?
Staggering illiteracy on his part though, which goes to show how much people have bought into the lies about renewables. It would actually be the other way round: Scotland would be reliant on baseload from South of the border. Unreliable wind energy would be replaced from elsewhere. The Nats think that the English public would tolerate buying expensive, excess, energy dumped on them by their newly independent, oh-so-friendly neighbours.
God help us.

It's as terrifying as me threatening to invade America. Even if we wanted to we can't. It's also utter nonsense. As far as I can see Sturgeon hasn't said it or even vaguely implied it.

She, or some of her more gung ho cronies, may be hoping it could be a good bargaining chip in the event that we do end up negotiating independence but I hope they don't put too much faith in it. I suspect the central government would just laugh at them.

Just to add that the quote from Fergus Ewing turns out to be more than seven years old, and to have been in response to a statement by the then UK Energy Secretary Ed Davey (current Lib Dem leader) that households in an independent Scotland would have to pay more for electricity than as part of the UK.

Good. And so it should. People need to be reminded what we are dealing with.
 
But will they care - or more importantly, do anything about it - I doubt it. I have seen more balls and backbone on a slug than I see from Westminster.
I was surprised the story was in The Daily Record. Does this mean some people in Scotland are now realising what is happening in their country?

The Record often have negative SNP stories, but don't seem to follow them up.

How on earth does the first minister of Scotland make it illegal to travel to a specific area of England? A serious question.

There have been various travel restrictions throughout this pandemic in all 4countries of the UK.
IIRC it's Wales that has had its border shut the most.

Internal Scottish restrictions have been fairly common.
