This motherfucking asshole. The whole "the will of the people, respect democracy" tired old nonsense when it's about Brexit, but fuck the will of the people and fuck democracy when it comes to someone else's desires.PM gives 'cast-iron' pledge to refuse second Scottish independence vote
Boris Johnson has made a “cast iron” pledge that he will not grant Nicola Sturgeon the powers she needs to hold a second independence referendum, regardless of whether the Scottish National party (SNP) wins a majority of Scottish seats in December’s general election or if they win a pro-independence majority in the Holyrood elections of 2021.

Could Brexit lead to Scottish independence and a united Ireland?According to this article, the ignorance of all three big British parties of Scotland and Northern Ireland is a powderkeg slowly rolling into a fire.
You’d never know it, but the future of the United Kingdom is at stake at The Guardian
I certainly hope so. They never voted for this nonsense, are constantly ignored unless an issue of theirs affects England and would in all likelihood be better off in the EU than out of it. I’m also wondering about Gibraltar, but theirs is a very different situation.Could Brexit lead to Scottish independence and a united Ireland?
Glorious for whom, exactly?What a glorious evening!
Which leads me to the question: Can Scottish independence be refused by the UK government?The way things are going there could Scottish Independence and a United Ireland before Boris gets anything done.
Scotland's going to be an interesting question - aside from any political considerations, the UK has several critical military facilities in Scotland that they can't replace/move in a timely fashion.Which leads me to the question: Can Scottish independence be refused by the UK government?
Probably can do it for a while as a Scottish independence referendum was held in 2014, and its supposed to be a once in a generation thing. Doubt SNP will wait that long. Boris led Tory Government will only increase demand for another vote.Glorious for whom, exactly?

Personally, I think that whether the UK left the EU or remained, it should have worked out a deal with the Irish government to reunify Northern Ireland with the rest of the island with protections for the Protestants, etc., and left. The UK does not need to be in Ireland and there's no real justification for a continued presence once protections are in place.Probably can do it for a while as a Scottish independence referendum was held in 2014, and its supposed to be a once in a generation thing.

Northern Ireland also voted for Remain candidates, the first time Unionist candidates weren't in the majority.
Not sure how you call it glorious.As for glorious... it was glorious in at least one way - seeing just how wrong the "common wisdom," "accurate polls," talking heads and all the other gleeful media idiots were. According to them, the election was supposed to be a tsunami in Labour's favor - but it seems to have been the exact opposite. Now they look like the partisan imbeciles they really are.
I remember when the media refused to take sides in most elections and at least tried to be objective and unbiased. Maybe they should consider returning to that standard if they don't like looking like morons.
