    Quite right Chicuero. Sturgeon has made it quite clear- she wants a referendum in or by 2024- Johnson has not actualy said no just recently - all he says is now is not the time- so o that bit they actually both agree.
    A lot of press hype and overreporting toi make themselves stories but it is liley to calm down as both concentrate on finishing off Covid- getting their economies regoing- and then by 2024 it will be a decade since 2014 so perhaps realistic timing, and Brexit problems all in the past and who knows by 2024 what the polls will be indicating - and what the rules may be from the EU on a Scottish rejoin - have my doubts how many Scots would say yes to the euro and then be told by Brussels Bankers how it will all work economically in their country? - Frying pans and Fire?

    ...I’m enjoying the quiet solitude as the farmhouse has been completely abandoned — the next few few days will be very satisfying.

    The greatest navy in South America we’re often told was modeled by a Scot Admiral — but in truth our military music is distinctly Prussian!
