Straight after BAGW 2, With 1000 yard stare and Brit Nerf battle standard!

SSGT

Isn't that Union Flag upside down?
OldNoob

I didn't know they had a way up, it came out the bag that way.
Seiryuu

They do indeed have a "correct" orientation but one would expect the manufacturers to be aware of it.
SSGT

If it didn't have text on it you would be able to just flip it over at the pole end. The thick portion of the white stripe should be higher than the red stripe on the flagpole side (specifically at the top) because the Scottish flag was given priority (top pole-side corner is symbolically the most important).
OldNoob

Bollocks to the Scottish flag- they get their own one back next week, lucky sods. Wish I could get independence from our glorious leaders in Westminster!
Well, you learn something new every day. Wonder if we will get a new flag, this having to display a new banner on the site?

I split this topic to preserve the photo comp! Additional comment welcome.

Oukie and FDT- what's your take on independence?
rob.payne5236

If they do  get their own way would britnerf change to "BritNerf..Oh and scotland" ?

That I will shortly be a Mexican making a run for the border if this bunch of what ifs and maybes get in.
OldNoob

Perhaps we need to set up our own country? The United Republic of Britnerf? "in Foam We Trust..."
rob.payne5236

Hmm maybe take over a smaller island using cobras and singled titans. But then the issue of changing the forum name .
Antonius

To be honest, Scotland will get their own parliament, like Norn Iron.

Devolved power isn't a threat. It just means the official name of the UK changes to be even more unwieldy!

"United Kingdom of Great Britain, Scotland and Northern Ireland" instead of "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland"

Then the Welsh will want out.

Once the UK devolves into the 15 or so feudal little kingdoms from the dark ages after roman occupation, you'll see the Celts and Vikings make a reappearance!

Razz
OldNoob

Sounds good to me.
rob.payne5236

Or a foam terrorist oorginisation comes over with full auto air blasters and take over. Does this mean scotland will have the whole gimmicky border like the US?

Just start charging a premium membership fee and put the money towards a small patch of land, from there we can become the world centre of zombie torism and begin to spread out.
Also, I demand that our currency be either "Brit Coins" or a combination of hapenies, pound notes and 5 and 20 pound coins.
rob.payne5236

Just saying if someone on here happens to win the lottery we do need to buy an island for HVZ.

It's a possibility. If they go independent they'll have to apply to join the EU as they don't get automatic membership. Unfortunately the EU is fed up of countries opting out of things like the Schengen agreement and the Euro so now any country which joins the EU must also sign up to these EU schemes.

That means Scotland may not get a choice but to sign up to the Schengen agreement and the Euro if they plan to join also the EU. Since the rest of the UK is non-Schengen you'd technically need a passport/ID to walk across the border. If the EU has any sense they'd at least allow the Scots to opt out of the Schengen agreement and maintain the current Common Travel Area (i.e. free travel across the whole of the British Isles) but that's not guaranteed.

Non-EU Nordics want Scotland to join them in a free trade area. Euro zone will poop itself if it happens.
oukie

Scotland's not gonna get into the EU anyway as all members states have to agree to allow a new country to join, at least Spain has already said it will veto Scotland, this is because it has concerns over parts of it's own country wanting to bunk off also, so if they recognise Scotland as independant they will then have to recognise their own bits that want to go it alone.

Also to a post further up the page Scotland has had its own parliment for years in fact longer than NI I think,

Ive really had  anough of it all tbh, it's getting pretty bad and going all abit 1930's Germany, with people who have finacially aided the no campain receiving death threats and all kinds of racial discrimination crap and bullying by the yes camp to anyone, seemingly your allowed an opinion but it's got to be the same as theirs.

No for me you might have guessed, I know more than a dozon people between friends and family friends who have already put their home's on the market just incase, England might soon be having a new immgration problem.
OldNoob

We will cut off the supply of Bucky if the Yes vote goes ahead!

All Scottish refugees welcome.
Octangula

I was living in Scotland until recently (end of May), and, were I still living there, I would be voting Yes to independence.

And yes, the Union Jack does have a right way up. The white diagonal stripe towards the top of the pole side should have the thicker part above the blue diagonal stripe, if I'm remembering correctly.
oukie

Just because I had a union Jack flag on my car, a fucking lunatic tried to run me off the road outside my daughter's nursery on my Monday I shit you not, the Twat was hanging out his window telling me to fuck off to England.

It's no longer a democratic election up here now it's one of racism and intimidation, pretty much as soon as any NO posters or signs go up, there destroyed, not only that YES nutters having been gate crashing NO events shouting abuse and on one occasion assaulting an MP,

One SNP nut job as said when they come to power they will be checking all demographic origins of all people living in Scotland  Shocked

Don't believe me ?

Google Scottish independence racism.
OldNoob

That is really bad, sorry to hear the numpties are out in already.
FDT

I haven't any experience first hand of any of this, only what I've read.

It doesn't matter if it's an election or a football match - idiots will be idiots.
