Scotland has a similar population to the individual populations of 75% of the English regions & only around half the population of London.

Scotland's capital, Edinburgh, has a smaller population than Sheffield, which isn't even the capital city of an English region.

Talk about the tail that wants to wag the dog.

What I really don't get is this? Currently the representation of the SNP, Liberals and Labour in the House of Commons gives a 46 seat majority to the Scots.

So no Scots at Westminster equates to a nett gain of 46 to the Tories. Why then are they so keen to retain Scotland, whats the big deal here - sentimentality  :ugh: - or am I missing something?

To England it's a lossmaker, needing ever increasing subsidy financially and to the Tories presently off-sets their 66 majority by 69%.

Who'd pay to add grit to the oil in their Car, to me madness!

That'll be because they both agree on the issues which I think the bulk of the public differ with them on. I could always be wrong and there could be majority support on mass inward migration,  nett zero and the woke agenda. Those issues do not even command universal agreement here.

New parties usually get nowhere in parliamentary elections but there is at least one that does say time to call an end to the nonsense. The one the Brexit Party morphed into now called the Reform Party.

I confidently predict that it will come nowhere as the sheeple continue to vote the way their parents always did or the opposite to how their parents did in some cases.

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended
