    They are NATO members ain't they so I guess other NATO members would. If Scotland wanted to join NATO then they would have to bring something to the table. I would imagine most serving troops would rather stay in a British Armed forces

    I know you. You know you. And I know you know that
    I thought that I'd read from the first ref. that the actual troops wouldn't get a choice and would have to stay in the British Army? whether they wanted to leave or not, unless they'd finished and could join a Scottish army once they were no longer in the British Army?

    The article is spot on. You can see the impact of these strategies from the recent scottish polls. Will be interesting to see how many seats the Scottish tories will win and then how that plays out in the ensuing indyref2 debate.

    The Tories didn't win one seat. All list.

    So in the 2016 Scottish election which was what I was referring to, the Scottish tories won seven constituencies and twenty four regional seats. Is that not correct?
