Putin of course.
Putin of course.
1) Russia GDP and oil price
2) Brexit voting areas are going to be worst hit by the economic fallout ó while London will be ok
3) I'm sure it's been pointed out before but the arguments with regards to sovereignty and the economy are very similar for scottish independence and the eu referendum ("project fear" was coined by the snp). It's bizarre how brazenly both the snp and the brexiteers take the complete opposite tact on the two issues.
Monbiot 100% OTM https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...-must-cut-ropeHere is the question the people of Scotland will face in the next independence referendum: when England falls out of the boat like a block of concrete, do you want your foot tied to it?
It would be foolish to deny that there are risks in leaving the United Kingdom. Scotlandís economy is weak, not least because it has failed to wean itself off North Sea oil. There are major questions, not yet resolved, about the currency it would use; its trading relationship with the rump of the UK; and its association with the European Union, which itís likely to try to rejoin.

Wait... have all the recent 'highest ever' scaremongering immigration figures included 164,000 foreign students? Something almost no other country does? Does this mean actual net immigration is closer to 150,000 per annum rather than the 335,000 headline figure?
Definitely a strong case now to be made for a gentle, soft spoken intervention, drugged tea, and then a soft, warm, locked room somewhere where the UK can no longer harm herself or others.
