    UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage told Breitbart that the visit by President Obama, where he threatened to send Britain to the “back of the queue” if the public voted to leave the European Union (EU), backfired and caused a “Brexit Bounce”, swaying Britons to vote for Brexit.
  • Scotland can have a second referendum, but it must decide on a currency first

    06/25/2016 9:20:37 AM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 50 replies
    I believe that the currency issue did more than anything to deliver the late swing to No in the last referendum. The question of the choice between the pound, euro or a currency of Scotland’s own was never clarified, and that was fatal to the cause of independence in 2014. Unless the issue is resolved before another referendum I strongly suspect that this issue might again be fatal to the cause of Scottish independence. There are only four options. They are the pound, the euro, the US dollar or Scotland’s own currency.

    As presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump stepped up to the podium at his press conference at Trump Turnberry in Scotland on Friday, a protester jumped up — interrupting the start of the press conference — to hand out golf balls with swastikas on them.

    Old habits die hard for Donald Trump, apparently. Addressing the world’s media in a press conference at his golf course in Turnberry, Scotland, he used the first ten minutes or so to promote his property. To say the least, we have never seen a potential president mix his business interests with the political stage. As I write, he is responding to questions from the media and saying sensible things about Brexit, emphasizing that the British people are taking back control of their destiny. It is pretty impressive. I can only conclude that Donald Trump is a statesman in progress. And...

    The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration. Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare...

    A majority of British voters said Thursday that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union, launching markets into turmoil as investors tried to digest what the referendum means for the U.K. and the European bloc as a whole. Although concern for the future of the EU may seem like hyperbole, nearly every member state has a political contingent in favor of leaving the union, and the successful Brexit vote may have just politically legitimized — and energized — those movements.

    Scotland last night gave a resounding endorsement to the EU as the UK overall voted for Brexit, raising the prospect of a demand for a second independence referendum. ..In the early hours, Alex Salmond was.. announcing that, if Scotland voted to remain but the UK overall voted to leave, Nicola Sturgeon would “implement the SNP manifesto”. The SNP document for last month’s Scottish election states that Holyrood should have the right to hold a second independence vote if there is a “significant and material” change in circumstances from 2014, such as Scotland being taken out of the EU against its...

    Jeremy Corbyn is on collision course with Labour MPs and trade unions for defiantly speaking at an anti-Trident rally and snubbing his party's pro-EU campaign. The Labour leader will address a CND rally in London alongside the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon, Leanne Wood of Plaid Cymru, the Green Party MP Caroline Lucas and veteran left-wing actress Vanessa Redgrave. His decision has infuriated many Labour MPs, who claim he is campaigning against the party's policy on Trident and ignoring its policy to campaign to remain in the EU. Although Mr Corbyn will also attend Labour's Yorkshire and the Humber regional conference, where...

    Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown made an impassioned call Monday for Labour Party supporters to vote to stay in the European Union, amid nervousness in the “remain” camp that it is losing momentum ahead of next week’s referendum. Brown, who governed from 2007 to 2010, said Britain should “lead in Europe” and not leave it. Polls suggest the June 23 vote on whether to leave the 28-nation bloc could go either way. The “remain” side has stressed the economic uncertainty that would be triggered by quitting, while the “leave” campaign has focused on unease about the large scale of...

    Scotland's government began moves Friday to hold a new referendum on independence from the U.K. after the "Brexit" vote, saying it faced being taken out of the European Union against its will. Scots voted by 62 percent to 38 percent to remain in the EU, according to Friday's results, in contrast to the overall U.K.-wide result of 52 percent to 48 percent in favor of quitting the bloc. A majority of voters in Northern Ireland also voted to remain in the EU, suggesting the U.K. faces internal constitutional upheaval as well as a contentious divorce from Brussels.

    In polite society, the correct opinion to hold about Scottish independence is that the Union must stay together. But I’ve been wondering: might not England thrive, freed from the yoke of those whining, kilted leeches? The more you think about it, the more persuasive the argument seems to be. I’ve been invited to debate this question – whether or not we long-suffering Sassenachs would be better off without our sponging Caledonian neighbours – in early September, at a debate held by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. How might I begin? Well, there are of course the immediate political consequences....

    Donald Trump leaves for Scotland Thursday, briefly escaping his turbulent presidential campaign to attend the official opening of a remodeled golf resort bearing his name. The foreign trip, Trump's first as the presumptive Republican nominee, will bear none of the traditional marks of the ritualistic campaign voyage abroad that White House hopefuls have embarked on in recent years. Trump is not slated to meet with any foreign leaders or visit historical sites but instead attend to his multibillion-dollar business interests. The trip -- an unconventional venture emblematic of the real estate mogul's campaign -- comes on the heels of the...

    Researchers led by Gordon Noble of the University of Aberdeen returned to a farmer’s field in northeastern Scotland where a hand pin, chain, and spiral bangle all made of silver in the fourth or fifth centuries A.D. had been found more than 170 years ago. According to a report in Live Science, on the second day of the investigation, the team, which had the assistance of metal detectorists, found three Roman silver coins, a silver strap end, a piece of a silver bracelet, and pieces of hack silver. Over a period of 18 months, they gathered a total of 100...

    Norfolk acted as a hub of resistance against Roman occupation, new analysis of archaeological finds has revealed. But the empire's military might eventually eclipsed native East Anglians in a brutal crackdown described as a "lost holocaust". A sprawling Celtic 'proto-city', as significant to its Iceni occupants as modern-day London, sprawled across eight square miles of West Norfolk, almost certainly providing a regular home to Boudicca. David Thorpe, from the Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project (Sharp), is excavations director for the site - the exact location of which is not being disclosed. Speaking yesterday, he explained the team have discovered...
  • Whistling Sling Bullets Were Roman Troops' Secret 'Terror Weapon'

    Some 1,800 years ago, Roman troops used "whistling" sling bullets as a "terror weapon" against their barbarian foes, according to archaeologists who found the cast lead bullets at a site in Scotland. Weighing about 1 ounce (30 grams), each of the bullets had been drilled with a 0.2-inch (5 millimeters) hole that the researchers think was designed to give the soaring bullets a sharp buzzing or whistling noise in flight. The bullets were found recently at Burnswark Hill in southwestern Scotland, where a massive Roman attack against native defenders in a hilltop fort took place in the second century A.D......

    RIYADH—Saudi Arabia, crimped by low crude prices, approved Monday a long-term blueprint for the kingdom’s economic transformation aimed at reducing its dependence on oil. The multiyear plan, dubbed “Saudi Vision 2030,” was approved by the cabinet, according to Saudi Arabia’s monarch, King Salman. The Saudi cabinet, in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency, said the government’s economic council would be in charge of overseeing the vision’s implementation. Saudi officials later Monday were to present a broad overview of the country’s most extensive economic shake-up in decades. The steep drop in oil prices has given new urgency to...

    To the casual observer, Saudi Arabia might seem like an emboldened nation that is asserting itself. They’ve been challenging Iran, fighting rebels in Yemen, threatening to invade Syria, and if some rumors are to be believed, they are currently trying to attain nuclear missiles from Pakistan. However, these aren’t the actions of a stable nation that is asserting its dominance in the region. These are the flailing death throes of a nation that is struggling to hang on. Ever since global oil prices started to plummet, Saudi Arabia just hasn’t been the same. That’s no surprise. Since prices fell, other...
