    At least I hope so. Fed up with their stream of non stop negativity.

    fed up is unfortunately not a metric that'll change how the country feels

    since 2014 Scotland only seems more pent up on me last visit a few weeks ago to Glasgow.

    I think most of the country is fed up. But that is due to increasing inequality. The Scots get a bad deal from London. IMO.

    I am sure there are some predictable "pent up" jokes there - can anyone assist in pointing out the obvious?

    well as the scots reap lots more than they sow via the Barnett formula that would be quite handy and a positive move for the rest of the UK

    Here's a simple and accurate analogy of how the Barnett Formula works, in terms an idiot could understand (based on the audience, IE, you)

    You have a family of nine, i live alone. I give you £20 and you give me back £6 and tell me that i'm getting more than my fair share because I should really only get £2, based on my share of the population. Along with the £6, you also send my a bill for £20 for a 10% share in your new lawn mower, despite me not having a garden.

    If Scotland leaving the UK saved rUK financially (for all the hand outs you believe we get), do you not think there would be even one Westminster MP calling for Scotland to be removed from the 'precious union' ? Among all the mad right wing nutters that you've just voted in, not one is calling for this ??

    England is a country that doesn't manufacture anything, has almost zero natural resources, can't keep itself in water or electricity or gas, has a huge trade deficit but still has a superiority complex up there with the biggest in the world.

    UK Manufacturing:
    UK Manufacturing Statistics

    Of course, you said England, but I doubt the entirety of the UK's manufacturing is Scotch Whiskey.

    Trade: Key Economic Indicators - Commons Library briefing - UK Parliament

    This doesn't look like a *huge* trade deficit to me.

    But as to why not one Westminster MP is calling for Scotland to be kicked out of the union baffles me. Maybe "the break up of the union" is seen as being a politically very bad thing (in terms of history), even though it would benefit the Tory party immensely if Scotland were out. Maybe it's the nuclear subs.

    Maybe we just like the fact that the Scots hate us so much due to their inferiority complex.

    No, it's not that. Hate is not something Scotland does. Hate, that's an Daily wail England thing.
