    I knew it. By the way, you never actually answered my question... I never asked you what you wanted; I asked if you think Scotland is actually capable of being a successful independent country (?) Yes or no?

    Just one more thing, Bonny... Do you sing Flower of Scotland?

    Don't you f*cking start Get it back on topic... The Croatia team... I love France and the French, but it would be very special to see a country like Croatia win the World Cup.

    Yeah well, The EU is already formed is it not? Of course, the British Empire was already formed before it crumbled... The Soviet Union was already formed before it crumbled... Yugoslavia was already formed before it crumbled... Things don't necessarily stay the same as you've always known them. Anyway, do you think Scotland is capable of being a successful independent country? I'm not asking what you want; I'm asking if you think Scotland is capable of being a successful independent country. P.S. I'll decide what I am.

    You've gone from "Damaging and dangerous" to "Interfering old biddies". The latter are rarely considered damaging and dangerous. You make it sound as if the EU has never done anything positive. They have set standards; that is surely a good thing. Anyway, I listed some countries to you earlier... Denmark, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, etc... All similar populations to Scotland; some are actually smaller. They are all successful independent countries and yet you view Scotland as incapable of being so. You think we're better in the UK? Why? I think it's easier for countries of our size to feed, clothe, educate, employ and look after their citizens. Per head of population, they are better at everything that matters.

    Well, I don't share his vision of Brexit. How on Earth anyone can think an all out, full on, Brexit will be anything other than damaging to UK jobs/economy, I do not know.

    I admit, the Scottish Conservative and Labour parties need to improve their pool of MSP's... In an independent Scotland they would need to improve in order to get into Government. However, I think Nicola Sturgeon and her colleagues are a far more professional and credible group of people than the 'buffoons' I listed above (Boris, Gove, Rees-Mogg, etc...) Farage a legend? So, do you think leaving the EU properly; totally out; hard Brexit; we're off...... Do you think that would be good for the UK economy? Let's say your an small/medium sized independent company exporting to Europe one day and then the next day... Rees-Mogg for PM??? And you're okay with that? FFS, how would the people of Scotland view that? On the up side, it may well be the appointment that drives us to independence! Just thinking it about, how would the people of Liverpool, Wolverhampton, Sunderland and Grimsby view it. Rees-Mogg is barely of the same species.

    Why??? Why are we better in this union??? Look at the f*cking state of it... Look at the political figures... May, Boris, Gove, Jacob Rees-Mogg, David Davies... Farage back on the scene... Corbyn sat on the fence. I wouldn't trust some of these pr*cks to look after a dog. It's a f*cking mess and let's not forget, the UK have p*ssed Scotland's considerable wealth down the drain over many decades. Why is independence perfectly okay for Denmark, Finland, Slovenia, Croatia, Norway, New Zealand and Singapore? All independent. All successful. These are all similar sized or smaller populations to Scotland. Why are we 'better' being ruled by London? The most successful and happiest countries in the world - some of the ones I've mentioned - are countries of our size. It's far easier to feed, clothe, educate, employ and look after 5 million people than it is to look after 60 million people. We can do this and one day, we will.

    Since we last qualified for a tournament... Croatia have qualified for 4 World Cups and 4 Euros. Uruguay have qualified for 4 x World Cups and won the Copa America. Republic of Ireland have qualified for 1 World Cup and 2 Euros. Slovenia have qualified for 2 World Cups and 1 Euros. Denmark have qualified for 4 World Cups and 3 Euros. Slovenia have qualified for 2 World Cups and 1 Euros. ... and I'm sure there are others. Plus the one-off appearances by Latvia, Northern Ireland and Wales - all have made appearances since we last qualified. All countries of a similar size to our own and every time one of these countries qualifies and we don't, it just highlights the failings of the people who run the game in Scotland. The more these countries qualify, the more the public and the media should be questioning the Scottish FA and League. How we bring about the necessary change in fortunes, I don't know, but I would start with a spring-to-autumn league.

    I didn't know that. It's pathetic behaviour.

    Are you suggesting because they never beat us, they're not that good?

    Scotland fans do more than most in the drinking, but would we act like that? I'm not saying Scotland fans have never acted like twats; I'm sure I probably have on occasion, but we don't seem to have an aggressive-mob-mentality. Are we capable of it? Christ I hope not. It's a strange thing to show such aggression when you're supposed to be happy. I also think of Rooney at this point... Scoring against West Ham a few years ago and swearing aggressively into the camera by way of a 'celebration'. It's mental. Need to ask a psychologist.

    Back to the football... I cannot understand how anyone can say they over-achieved (ex. players and fans alike). They played 2 minnows who they're expected to beat every time... The Belgium match may have been irrelevant and played by squad players, but they lost it anyway... They couldn't beat an average Colombia team in open play... They did beat a average Sweden team. Then they lost tonight. They've won just one match in open play against anyone other than a minnow.
