    She's not bluffing. But we can all see a desperate way to hang onto power. Distract from the fact that SNP are doing terrible.

    She said: "I don't feel as if I know any more about her (Theresa May's) negotiating objectives than I did six months ago."

    Ummm .... me neither.

    I think May has been very clear about her demands. We all know what she wants to achieve.

    It's going to be a red, white and blue brexit.

    Don't forget that Brexit means Brexit as well. As for Sturgeon, it's strange how she's gone from being the breath of fresh air that she was portrayed as being at the last election to a troublesome and inept nuisance since the referendum in the eyes of the sections of the media that have given up on showing any sort of objectivity when it comes to Brexit.

    I guess you dont like her as she is a very negative politician, and seems to be forever wanting to blame anyone else other than herself and her party's policies.

    If she and Alex had won the election, Scotland would be bankrupt by now as she based her whole policy on the price of oil (before it dropped by over 50%). Add on top of that the nasty bullying of the SNP and it's not hard to see why Bob and many many others despise her as well.

    Well at the moment she can demand whatever she wants - but she wont be getting it. And if we really want to be blunt about - the conservatives dont need Scotland - only Labour do, so it probably suits the conservatives for her to be in power jumping up and down a like who finds someone on their bridge.

    And breakfast means breakfast , and we should feast upon that opportunity , Sturgeon may prefer her Oats, I think the rest are a bit flaxey , whilst our Theresa ""sometimes believes as many as six impossible things before breakfast "

    Re: She is not bluffing.

    Ms.Sturgeon has truly dug herself into a hole of her own making. This "call my bluff" posturing could mean that in order not to look foolish she will feel obliged to call a second independence referendum whilst in the knowledge that the majority of the Scottish people (according to the opinion polls) don't want independence! If the people say "no" a second time then she will have lost any credibility she has left and will have to stand down as leader of the SNP.

    Politics is as mad as a box of frogs at the moment. So lets say Scoootland does get a 2nd referendum and they vote to leave the UK.

    Would that also make them outside the EU ? and they would have to apply to re join - and as part of that use the Euro as currency ?

    Or would they automatically still be a part of the EU? - I dont think this is possible as any 'new' country as apparently to pass a set of 'stringent' tests....having said that seeing as the Greeks lied through their @rse to get in - then Sturgeon would probably do the same. We would then be left with a 'live' border with the EU in Scootland and also in Ireland - which in theory would mean - if you want to protect your borders - a fence and border patrols etc

    Re: She is not bluffing.

    I would imagine that there would be a relaxed immigration policy between the U.K. And scotland, similar to that proposed with Ireland.
    Of course instead of illegal immigrants trying to jump on lorries at Calais they can just stroll across the border at Carlisle.

    Re: She is not bluffing.

    She has also indicated a soft Brexit would see the prospect of Scottish independence "put aside" in the short term.

    Short term eh ? ? ?

    She has been banging on about it since they voted against it last time, it has always been her Agenda

    Would Scotland really thrive if they " went it alone " ? ? ? i know they wouldnt be short of people for the unskilled work with the welcomed eastern Europeans, but would they thrive at anything else ? ? ?

    Sounds like someone cling to power by spouting off in Farage / Trump like mantra.

    If I had my way I'd give them independence ,and stand back and watch it collapse in front of them, ungrateful . skirted howling bag piping bunch , cant understand a bloody word they say .

    Who gave them devolution and financed it In the first , guess it wasn't just the ungrateful Scottish taxpayer, let them go, build a bigger wall , and charge them tolls to enter England , and give their money to Wales I say

    Hadrian's Wall is in England. All of it.

    It would be very confusing if the SNP built another wall on the border to keep the English out - and called that one Hadrian's Wall too.

    Maybe take a lead from Trump and settle for Hadrian's Fence?

    Maybe even join up the wall and the fence along the North Sea coast from Wallsend (Newcastle) to Berwick with Hadrian's Hedge?

    That would create a triangle in northern England. We could call it Hadrian's Triangle so it doesn't get confused with the Bermuda Triangle? This looks like a plan!

    With their track record, I'd put money on the yanks fabricating a story about Nicola Sturgeon stockpiling WMD's at which point they'd invade and nick all the oil
