As you can see, there are a lot of influential people, with a lot to lose if we were to remain in the EU, or leave with a hard or soft Brexit and a transtion period.
Nevermind the fact that thousands of jobs will be lost, wages will fall by £2000 per head, per year, there will be no freedom of movement, no single market, and then prospect of the UK Governement's Power Grab, regarding the Great Repeal Bill.
Brexit is for the 1% and the 1% only.
According to a survey that is being released tomorrow, 88% of brexiteers would sacrifice the Union, and the peace process in Northern Ireland, to make sure Brexit happens.
Scotland's 13 Conservative MPs went agains the democratic vote of the 62%
They went against the best interests of Scotland, and voted for the EU Withdrawl Bill, which will contribute to taking powers from Holyrood to Westminster.
This is shocking.
Has the world gone mad?
What on earth is wrong with people these days?
It's time independence supporters got wise, stopped feeding the trolls, stuck up for each other and prepare for what's coming, cause I believe things are going to get a lot worse.

DEFIAYE IS IN HOSPITAL TODAY. SHE HAS BEEN THE VICTIM OF HOMELESSNESS AND ‘AUSTERITY BRITAIN.’ SHE HAS ALWAYS KNOWN WHO WAS TO BLAME, BUT THE ONLINE BRITNAT TROLLS WHO HOUNDED HER ARE ONLY NOW SHOWING US HOW LOW THEY CAN GO.
DefiAye, a brilliant young artist and a star of the independence movement, posted on Twitter yesterday: “I’m so sorry. I had to do it. I’m being accused of benefit fraud. I can’t live in this world as it is.” Within the hour her friend Simone called the Police. She was discovered at her home and rushed to hospital, where she is now recovering in intensive care. Those who know DefiAye and follow her on social media will know she has only recently gotten out of homelessness and into a house of her own, and that, as a sufferer of a chronic and debilitating illness, she was recently summoned for a medical review that threatened to cut off what few benefits she had coming in.
Brexit voters have responded angrily to news that EU diplomats are plotting to withdraw flagship agencies from Britain ‘within weeks’.
The Daily Express reported the move was a ‘Brexit punishment’ - despite admitting the loss of the European Banking Authority and the European Medical Agency (EMA) was inevitable after the triggering of Article 50.
According to the seven judges that decided on the UK Government's appeal regarding allowing the MPs to vote regarding invoking article 50:
The Sewel Convention has no legal force. Holyrood’s legislative powers can be over-ridden as and when the UK Government chooses.
David Mundell said this in May 2016:
"The permanence of the Scottish Parliament is now written in law, as is the Sewel convention, which states that the UK Parliament will not normally legislate in devolved areas without the consent of the Scottish Parliament".
Is it safe to assume that either the only Conservative MP in Scotland was ignorant, or not telling the truth?
At least now we know that when any of the #toryelectionfraudsters say Holyrood is a powerhouse parliament, that is a complete lie.
SNP MPs have tabled the first four of the fifty amendments they have vowed to make to the UK Government’s Article 50 bill.
The UK Government published its bill for parliament’s approval to trigger Article 50 to leave the EU yesterday.
But it has faced down calls by opposition MPs and some of its own backbenchers to publish a white paper outlining its position on leaving the EU in more detail.
The four amendments tabled by the SNP today include asking for a UK-EU membership reset clause, meaning that if the Prime Minister fails to seek agreement from the European Council to approve the terms of exit for the UK, it will result in UK membership continuing on existing terms.
It adds an amendment that the Prime Minister must seek agreement of all members of the Joint Ministerial Committee on European Negotiation to an agreed UK wide approach to, and objectives for, the UK’s negotiations for withdrawal from the EU.
Another SNP amendment calls for EU nationals resident in the UK to be given a guarantee that they are entitled to stay here on the same terms as currently.
And the fourth amendment requires the Prime Minister to bring a white paper on the UK exiting the EU before both houses of parliament.
Alex Salmond, the SNP’s International Affairs spokesperson at Westminster, said: “The UK government may choose to treat devolved administrations with utter contempt but let it be clear that these amendments tabled by the SNP should show the Prime Minister that here, in Westminster, the SNP will lead the charge in bringing the hard Brexit brigade back to the House to answer over their lack of plans.
“These tabled amendments are to address some of the ongoing and abiding concerns of EU citizens, devolved administrations and respect for Parliament in its most fundamental and basic duty.
“The pressure is piling on Theresa May when she returns from her jaunt to cosy up to Donald Trump. She should prepare for the SNP putting forward an effective opposition."
