    Default Scotland - Unattractive to immigrants

    Election 2017: Davidson says immigrants find Scotland 'unattractive' - BBC News

    That must suck, I wonder how the Scottish people feel about that? Gutted I guess.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Scotland must be pretty unattractive to Scots judging by the number of expats scattered all over the UK and Europe...

    I like Ruth Davidson, she is a canny politician - but she is talking sh*te if she thinks that tax is the reason that immigrants favour the rest of the UK over Scotland, I doubt most Scots, and probably even more immigrants, would have any clue about the difference in income tax rates between England and Scotland (40% rate kicks in £2k earlier).

    Ich finde Davidson unattractive to voters - lets see if the polls agree in a couple of weeks.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Not at all. Just prefer to live in a democratic country.

    You mean you like living in the EU where we keep voting until we get the 'right' answer?

    Or where your politicians deny what they are doing until its too late to stop it?

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    Well done Scotland. Just got to get that policy sorted in the rest of the UK.
