    EU’s public deficit limit is 3 per cent of gross domestic product and debt limit of 60 per cent of GDP for existing members.
    Can Scotland even meet that?

    A quiet word with your local friendly vampire squid should sort it.

    I was responding to someone who said that it made no sense to say that they were voting Brexit to limit Muslim immigration to the UK. I generally agree with that but I pointed out some reasons which could have led them to think that.

    It's certainly not true to say the EU has had no impact on the Muslim population of the UK. It's not the main reason the UK has a substantial Muslim population by any means, of course, but it has had some limited impact.

    I didn't take a position myself on the subject, I just outlined possible reasons for what that particular Brexit voter said.

    Certainly when I voted Brexit it had nothing to do with Islam or Muslims.

    You're thinking of the stability and growth pact. 3% isn't an entry requirement to the EU

    Agreeing to join the euro is, and the stability and growth pact is part of that.

    Not that it matters anyway since the pact is routinely ignored.

    Yeah , thanks. I imagine the same rules or more strict would probably apply to new entrants

    Yes but they're not implementing it are they. May is implementing it and was originally on the losing side. It's a pathetic and ridiculous situation and you're a particular sad and pathetic individual if you think it's got nothing to do with us.

    You're cherry picking stuff. Scotland can operate independently of England, of course they can.

    That's democracy. But perhaps like the scum in Brussels, you would prefer that the vote again until the get it right?

    It's a pathetic and ridiculous situation and you're a particular sad and pathetic individual if you think it's got nothing to do with us.
    There you go again with the voices in your head. I didn't mention anything about the effects of Brexit on Ireland.
