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...

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.

Weird stuff from Luxor a fan of the modern emotional Jacobites in Scotland. He ignores the mess in the merger of all the police forces the heavy debts the all_Scotland one has, stations going and then education another laugh as is the health service up here. When they parade the streets  there are NO crowds watching them anywhere. When I and some others formed a group to heckle them in Glasgow we had plenty of space to watch them on the pavement. I did laugh at groups of women holding up that "newspaper" they take pride in even though only about 8,000 buy the dashed thing. Odd people dressed like a previous historical time and there was even an Irish Republic flag carried. That lot want the EU because they could not fund Scotland and made worse by no UK government grant on independence.

Standing with the holocaust denier were you? Charming company you keep and says everything about you really.

Get yourself a new scriptwriter Howie, your patters rotten. You need to get off your knees and stop bowing to your imperial masters.

You do talk in a semi-regular fashion a load of cobblers Luxor.

Firstly your Nationalist corner is a load of cobblers and the other day a former well know SNP leader condemned the SNP for the way Sturgeon and company are being daft. Your lot have a terrible education record for a country that was once tops. Also merged all the police forces increasing the debt caused and closing a considerable list of stations. Health issues - almost anther laugh. The Nats yak about another Referendum because of the majority of seats won yet that was similar to the last time and the agreement was it was to be another generation if another time.  The majority of Scots who voted Unionist were a numerical majority but those hundreds of thousands of no change are ignored.  That ex-deputy leader has in addition condemned those daft Under One Banner parades the modern Jacobites hold and he is right nobody bothers with them!

I will also intimate to readers that the last recent parade in my city had placards using the swear word f--- on them and in addition a large almost street wide banner calling the Tories scum. Considering that the Conservatives in Scotland had hundreds of thousands of voters that was disgraceful but no apology form Sturgeon and company.

As for me ignoring the German holocaust thing is firmly just a bit of an  ignorant impossibility of the facts. We all know about Nazi brutality but due to the way we get constant tv programmes on it overlooked is the hard truth that the evil USSR killed an awful lot more than the Nazis did. Large numbers stuck in horrible freezing camps in Siberia and numbers killed in the old Russia ran into 8-figures. We either do not get access to the old records over there or we are just ignorantly treated in this very basic truth so I stick by actual history in  that Communist overtook Nazism. That you cannot accept what is factual about Scottish Nationalism or what the ex-deputy stated in the press you sidestep into either ignorance or body-swerving on real history. Labelling me was so childishly daft. Keep that wee woman with the big mouth in charge as others are getting fed up with her.

Once again for the dim Howie. It was not an SNP march, so there is absolutely nothing for them to apologise for. The Tory scum tag is quite appropriate for a party that has killed thousands of sick and disabled people. If they don't want to be called scum then stop killing people.

I didn't accuse you of ignoring the German holocaust you dimwit.

Interesting slagging me of as a dimwit instead of being unable to do much with the Nationalist nonsense. Your pal Sturgeon has condemned one of the Labour lot wanting to be the new leader who had said she hated the SNP. Don't know whether than lefty woman was being serious or joking but it was in a way for mouthy Sturgeon to be critical. However I have not yet came across Sturgeon being a mouth on that massive banner carried by your lot through Glasgow with the scum word against hundreds of thousands of Scots Unionists. You seem to be in the same mind-slot of those of the "Under one banner" mentality so you would not realise that dimwit is neaer your home. Unable to cope with what I have deliberated on nationalist mess ups slagging me just conforms why those mental eejits have those parades than do NOT get watched. Try and face the direct truth. Instead we get Nationalist dancing away from truth because you cannot cope with such. Pathetic!

The hard fact of life is this.

I have listed the negatives your lot are guilty of regarding health, police, NHS plus it has the highest tax system in the UK Oh and ignoring the economical fact of life that Scotland's economy is strongly linked to Britain and only 25% to the EU. addition parading through cities and towns with hardly any watchers plus the ex-deputy leader condemning such events. The swear words on posters and that very disgusting large stretched sign regarding the sum word but not a damn answer from you.  Instead you are like those mobs who walk with those parades but unable to deal with policies or answer these hard facts of life that have appeared on tv, news, etc. You in being ignorant in what you say about me on the TRUTH says much about you and in hard fact your lot.  No explaining and calling me off as some rather immature way of dancing away from facts of life. Would say that you are very much like those zombies in those marches. No answers to hard facts but name calling oh and how the deuce would you lot cop financially on independence as the annual grant from London would be gone. You have as much chance of independence as the old Jacobites winning. Lastly, I will tolerate in the hope that once an adlt you can answer direct and definitive things I have listed.

I will give you this in passing. Firstly acting the same way as those in those Nationalist parades where no crowds go to watch. Instead of answering my direct statements that ARE factual you slag off and use disproportionate language. That you do not answer the negatives list I have simply stated without the dopey ignorance you are expressing you are only making my corner more appropriate. Having been in public office, community work, written about, interviewed I have NOT acted the way you have. Being probably unable to contradict what I have informed readers of  you are not doing yourself any credit.  It is thus obvious that you cannot answer the well known points but just ridicule whereas I have not lied or made anything up so you have not done yourself any mature good at all. No answers just ignorant language which is much similar to what was used in that recent "All Under One Banner" march in my city. Sad the way belaying yourself against positive statements. My only consolation is the majority of Scots do not want independence and you have not shown your corner very maturely but display immaturity. Having stated factual that you cannot answer you have not done your corner much good I am afraid.

You are not being polite nor are you appearing sophisticated. When I list the public negatives whih are often aired in the media, newspapers, etc you just ignore them. Even when a leading SNP man like the former deputy leader was critical you do ignore the public negatives.  Instead your stance is to ignore the public negatives and slag me off and although it is idiotic you I am afraid not able to answer or be competent. To the main readership here my strong corner will be obvious and will even if have grey cells unfortunately make it seem you are unable to answer the negatives because you are unable to cope with hard truth so readers please notice!
