That doesn't matter. The excitement of a yes vote in Scotland would ensure another Quebec referendum in the next decade. The only thing that would stop that is post-referrendum Scottish economic armageddon.you seem to forget (or never knew in the first place), that when Pauline Marois paid a special visit to Scotland last year to show *solidarity*, she got completely rebuffed and ignored by Alex Salmond (big Yes PM guy there). It was one of several high-profile Embarrassments for the PQ which saw them get trounced out earlier this year.
See, it's like this. If a Scot were to immigrate to Quebec, they'd be *un anglais* and treated like a second class citizen, a *pariah*, or at least be subjected to a bunch of sucky Quebecers trying to validate themselves (in the worst way).
But, thing is, obviously Canada has many transplanted Scots. I mean, Nova Scotia (DUH). As well as Ontario, the prairie provinces, the Maritimes in general, BC....
So, therefore, the Scots in Scotland identify strongly with Canada, and they don't give a shit about Quebec.
Not all referendum votes are created equal
(That being said, I don't give a shit which way the Scot vote goes. Though I must say, it's been fun and entertaining to watch!
that guy is a poster-boy for everything that makes Quebec creepyThe separatists are cheering them on. Sol Zanetti seems rather bitter and upset about the previous Quebec referendums. Call me crazy, but with the way he brings up historical grievances, I find him rather unpleasant and not nice:
Try wingsoverscotland or bellacaledonia, the UK media has been very pro-union for the last 2 years so it is very difficult to parse what has gone on by only reading their take on it which is overwhelmingly pro-establishment.I guess im going to have to read up on whats been happening there.
seems a little bit more complicated than the Quebec issue.
Well the plural is "referenda" and the adverb is "equally". If you're Quebecois I'll give you slack. If you're Scottish well, I'm glad you're sober enough to type.Not all referendum votes are created equal
