It is not a surprise to me that support for a United Ireland would be increasing. But I don't think figure I've seen this 51% want a United Ireland figure. Got a link?

Polls are only a snap shot. 51% of 10% isn't 51% of 100%

Whilst I think it would be a shame to break up the union, any vote on referendums of scottish independence should include Scots who don't li e in Scotland, but reside in the UK.

I am of Scots, Irish and English decent, but I won't be afforded a vote.

I'm just having a look at the stats...

From the Scot.gov website:

In 17/18

Scotland's revenue was £60bn

Scotland expenditure was £73bn

A cool 13bn hole each year. I wonder who helps to plug that

Trouble is, the Scots don't like Sturgeon.

This is based on my Scottish family

Its for Scotland and NI to decide what they want to do. I am a unionist, so hope it all stays together, we will all be poorer if it breaks apart. The only winners will be politicians, civil servants and lawyers. All of them leech money. If the EU starts to fall apart, will it be worth it.

That is the question Neil.Will the EU fall apart?
They way they threw Ireland under a bus last week and their treatment of Greece and Italy is nothing short of disgraceful.

Apparently some knob from Wales thinks there's a chance of independence as Scotland nearly did it. I know it's true as I saw it live on the Andy Marr show this morning. From my understanding North Welsh and South Welsh can't stand each other, could be interesting to see how this works out.

Not mentioning Cardiff or Swansea obviously.
