BBC Scotland Regional Office very rarely open up comments on any political story unless it is pretty much a guaranteed yoon fest, and an SNP/Nicola Sturgeon hate fest by the good and glorious of the union.
Today is such a day, the Supreme Court (as expected) ruled against the devolved administrations having a say over Brexit and this has now laid open the fact that Holyrood, the majority of voters in Scotland, and this so called political union means nothing. What England wants England gets, simples.
There will be a million words written today and I won’t be able to reach the level of analysis that many others will, but todays judgement surely shows the wavering no voter where Scotland stands in the grand scheme of things in the UK. Of course the Britnats will be having wet dreams tonight getting another opportunity to trash Scotland, the country they don’t recognise nor care a jot for.
So being a brave wee soul I went and had a look at the comments being written and below is a wee sample, I feel sorry for the many yoons trapped into that mindset, being so hateful for people who were born in the same Scotland you were must be so tiring, whatever happens today is another expected but sad day in our so called United Kingdom.
Indy2 can’t come soon enough.

Dare you to have another vote – if you’d get behind the fact that the rest of the UK subsidises you, you’d stop trying to commit economic suicide by banging on about independence. Britain would be greater if we act as a whole, but every English tax payer would have more of their hard earned tax money spent on services for them if you left us. I’d like you to stay if Sturgeon would just keep quiet

Going to enjoy watching Nicola Sturgeon screaming like a toddler about this later on today
The ruling on Scotland is just. Nieder-Sachsen doesn’t make German foreign policy, nor California, American, nor Yorkshire, British. Scotland is not an independent nation,. no armed forces, no foreign minister,no central bank and relying for centuries on subsidies from the UK taxpayer

• 11. Beavo- “Does Sturgeon actually do anything for Scotland? Or does she just complain and throw a tantrum every time something doesn’t go her way?”
She does something…
She runs up an eye-watering decficit (worse than Greece’s)
She sacrifices 4-17 year old education to keep “free” Uni places
She widens the wealth gap in Scotland

The Poisoned Dwarf has delusions of grandeur above her station. At the last election the SNP’s 1.4 million votes secured it 56 MPs. Meanwhile, the Green Party won almost as many votes as the SNP but only one MP. Ukip also ended up with one MP despite receiving nearly three times as many votes as the SNP. County Councils get more votes than the SNP.
She builds up a social and NHS deficit that will bite soon

So the Scots achieve independence & we assume they will no longer be subsidized by rUK under the Barnett Formula & no doubt will then have to pay some kind of membership fee to join the EU followed by going cap in hand with a begging bowl to the EU. Where is the ‘independence’ in all this? Sure they will be independent from the UK only to become dependent on the EU? Better the devil you know..!

As a proud Scot, I am delighted by this decision.
The vile nationalist agenda of the SNP is nothing to do with Brexit and Sturgeon and her daft pals should keep out of it.
She still remains the egoist who wants to take Scotland out of the UK like her puppeteer Salmond who is still pulling her strings. Scotland is and always will be dependent on being part of the UK and incapable of being an independent EU country.
