    Ah, the world is going to be saved from fascism, if only people would just listen to our dear departed friend! It is HIS VOICE that must be heard and will make the difference!

    Because HE is the SAVIOUR from fascism, his voice should be heard on anything that affects him. Oil prices affect him, so HE SHOULD HAVE A SAY in Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, America, and Russia. Military spending affects him, so he should be granted a voice in the counsels of IS. In fact, he should have his own seat on the UN Security Council, or at least be invited to speak on every decision they make, since what they decide probably affects him from time to time.

    And if people won't listen to him, we'll have fascism. The National Socialists might be elected in Germany again.

    And if people do listen to him, we'll have Nationalist Socialists elected in Scotland. Again.

    So why are you complaining about the EU? You don't live there. Why do you talk about it so much?

    You can tell it's going to take humanity many decades to come to move towards a borderless society despite all being afflicted by the same issues. Stupidity being one of them.

    Strangely until we leave the EU in two years time (and stop paying our subs) we are still very much part of the EU.

    Absolutely. And the way to do it is though co-operation, understanding and building on common interests. Not setting up a unelectable and unaccountable dictatorship(is there any other kind?), and trying to force integration by currency union instead of via fiscal union.

    I want Merkel tried for crimes against the Latin Europeans.

    Something tells me the UK will be paying a lot more, all sums being done, for EEA style access than membership. Just ask Norway.

    Of course they're electable. Just like the Lords in the HoL's are. Little difference.

    Many Scot's probably feel like they're living in the modern day dictatorship, receiving a system of government they never voted for.

    Most of Scotland will soon find out they are just swapping one load of dictatorship for another. Edinburgh will do well, the rest will be stuffed. In North WAles, they hate the WElsh government as it is Cardiff centric. I find it amusing seeing which they hate more - Cardiff or London.....

    They are actually more electable than the HoL.
