But migration is parallel to investment within business and work opportunities. And the question is as the rest if the UK is their biggest market and the UK is out of the EU and the EU insists on trade barriers fuel to WTO, will trading with the rest of the EU compensate that first what they lost to encourage new investment?
And Beren the question isn't why wouldn't the UK allow a legal Scottish independence vote (mainly defence I suspect), but why would they? Why would the UK volunteer to increase the shitfest they are currently in and divide Scotland further when really Sturgeon should wait until there is no longer (or perhaps a lessen) an economic burden to leave the UK and have justification and a much larger support for it. The SNP would only get the blame in Holyrood for false promises if she pushed on with this whilst Brexit still hasn't been resolved and the Scottish economy collapsed like the Tories will discover under 'No Deal' Brexit if they did.

I like the idea that the SNP would get some of their own medicine when the proverbials hit the fan, should Scotland get it's independence(which I agree with), but is having to contend with it's own economic disaster as a direct result.
Compared to the U.K leaving the E.U & adjusting to it's new position(I welcome the opportunities to make businesses work
for their money)Scotland would end up in an economic pickle.
That would put into the spotlight there opposition in Westminster to the U.K leaving the E.U.
