Meanwhile in Scotland....

This afternoon the SNP, Labour, Liberal Democrats and Green's passed a motion tabled by Nicola Sturgeon to give the First Minister the Parliamentary mandate to engage the EU institutions and leaders on possible solutions to keeping Scotland in the EU as it's population voted.

The Tory party abstained. The tory party's amendment that changed the motion to give the FM the mandate to negotiate only with London was defeated 68-31 with the SNP and Greens defeating the Conservatives.

Basically, since brexit Scotland has been a sea of calm and unity. With Ruth half on board and half off board depending on how many nightmares she had the previous evening of a utopian socialist successful independent Scotland. This move has given Scotland it's first independent foreign policy initiative with Europe for 300 years, which is fitting given that at about 4:30am on Friday morning it stopped giving a shit about what rUK thought in regards to Europe.

Only place to see leadership at the moment is Holyrood. f*** even Labour have managed to pause their slide into electoral irrelevance with Dugdale's evisceration of Ruth today and their enthusiastic backing of the EU plan.

The SNP have been tweeting about that rather gleefully all day! happy.gif

JP Morgan are advising their US clients that by 2019 Scotland will be an independent nation with it's own currency.
