God Save the Governor!
What a time to be alive. Never ending Brexit, Trump lurching from one controversy or crisis to another.......and now it can be revealed that the current outgoing governor of the US state of Mississippi has been fiddling and diddling with the Brexit process. It should be noted that Bryant created the "Royal Commonwealth Society USA" (that should thrill @rjhowie ) several years ago.

Oh yes; MS can be 50th in everything out of 50 states, save religious aspects, but isn't it just wonderful that Bryant has found so much time to interfere in another country's business (and bring one state back into the Commonwealth?)

Bryant does only what he was instructed for.
BTW, do you know about a single spot on earth where the USA doesn't interfere in another country's business?
In comparison, World4Brexit is rather harmless. In many other parts of the world millions of people had to pay with their lives and still do...

Probably Zimbabwe.

Nice to see you are still around Mr. Howie. I'd figured you were in London haranguing Boris or giving Sturgeon hell.

Outer Mongolia, landlocked between Russia and China, hold their own fairly well.

So Howie is a "leftist" now too? Your list of "leftists" seem to encompass practically the entire population of the planet, living or dead.

Anyway, while I guess Howie is thrilled by the last UK election, there is one aspect of it that should make him unhappy and you happy: While the election results makes not-totally-stupid-Brexit a more likely outcome than the alternatives, it also has some other side-effects regarding the unity of the United Kingdom.

An independent Scotland is less, not more, likely in the short run. As you remember there was a referendum about that too, and the Scottish nationalists lost. Now the Scottish desire to leave is likely to rise, possibly again rising to a majority, but it won't happen. First because there is no incentive for Whitehall to offer another referendum, unless the Tories were to become systematic weak, and unable to win elections in England again unless they jettisoned Scotland. Second because while the desire would be higher, the implementation would be much harder.

An independent Scotland back in the old days of 2014, would be just another EU nation, just like Rump-UK and Ireland. The opposition, particularly from Spain, would be hard (because of Catalonia and Euskadi), but faced with a fait accompli, Scotland would join the EU. Post-Brexit newly independent Scotland would have a choice: Stay out of EU too and have a loose connection with England&Wales, or join the EU. The first is not what they want and it would not be clever. Alone Scotland would be very vulnerable. There is a reason Norway, a country of the same size, is in the EEA (basically EU light). And if Scotland was in the EU, there would be an EU border between Scotland and England. That would cost England a bit, and Scotland a lot.

HOWEVER, it will make a reunited Ireland much more likely. Unlike Scotland, the drivers all move in the same direction. Religion, both Protestant and Catholic, is losing its spell over Ireland too. So "Protestant" and "Catholic" is becoming more like ethnic indicators than actual religion. That notwithstanding, Protestants are still Unionists, and Catholics are still Republicans.

It was assumed that demographic changes (cue Monty Python's Meaning of Life) would ultimately lead to a reunited Ireland, but that is a very slow process (Catholics don't have children either). But Brexit might change it all. With it EU Ireland would be more attractive to NI and England less attractive, even for Protestants.

Tories might even be fine with that, even given the "Unionist" part of their name. It is a common attitude in those circles that NI isn't worth the cost. Now that DUP doesn't have control of the Parliament anymore, unionist have little say. Some will stick up for a union with NI, others might make a show of sticking up for it, while already having let it go. (Much like Corbyn made a show of being remainer, while the EU was in the way of his dream of a Socialist Republic of Great Britain.)

I am of course not a leftist and I am exceptionally pleased that the Prime Minister got the stomping majority he did. And those nationalist blank brains up here north of the Border at their usual ignorance. In their parade through Glasgow on a recent Saturday they had a long big banner across the street stating to get "rid of the Tory scum." No apology from the SNP or the individual posters using the f--- word. Yes they did well in the number of MP's got BUT the majority of the actual votes were for the Unionists spread over 3 main parties. Emotional modern Jacobites who have messed the National Health Service, Education and the police a big mess-up.

What a surprise, RJ pops up with his usual tired old keech.

The march was by AUOB (All under one banner), and not in anyway anything to do with SNP. (even if some members want to march along as is there right). Nothing wrong with saying you want rid of Tory scum and nothing for the SNP to apologise for,
The start and end to every story is the same. But what comes in between you have yourself to blame.
