    Scotland want is to ignore Brexit from the EU or the UK as a whole.
    Powers during Brexit will be transferred to the nation's capital (London), and Scotland fears for it's devolved self.

    In doing so, the SNP have removed themselves from taking part in a second day of debate on the EU withdrawal bill.

    the SNP is divorced from reality the sooner they disappear the better.
    The debate could have lasted 10 seconds or 10 days and the result would have been the same .... stupid dickheeds should go figure it out.

    It is rather an irony that the SNP opposes Brexit.
    For in hoping to prevent UK independence from the EU, they hope to minimize Scottish reliance on England and further their own national independence. UK nationalism, if such a concept could be said to exist, comes at the cost to Scottish nationalism. Therefore by diluting English nationalism into the conglomeration of the EU they bolster the degree of their own nationalism.
