"Why An Independent Scotland Will Not Be Independent"
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she will seek approval next week for a second referendum on Scottish independence… But Nigel Farage says even if the Scots opted for independence - the country wouldn’t become independent for this reason.
If Scotland voted for independence they would still not become an independent country for one reason, according to Nigel Farage.
Nicola Sturgeon has warned she will seek approval next week for a second referendum on Scottish independence.
Her comments left LBC listener Dave outraged so much, he text Nigel saying: "Are the Scottish Government stupid? How can you square the nonsense of independence from England and crave the shackles of Brussels they would be even less independent?"
Tending to agree, Nigel responded: "I can't understand why they've not been rumbled in Scotland for using the word independence when they don't actually mean it."
