    So , if I understand it correctly , no one really believes that Mr Farage will even get seats in the UK parliament and absolutely no chance at all into the British government ? Sounds like Hilary Clinton supporters to me ! Next scenario , for Jamie et al. The UK eventually leaves the EU , one way or another . The SNP declares UDI and the UK becomes DUK ,the tories manage to stay on until 2022 when the next election is planned , (they seem to be able to drag everything out for years) Mr Corbyn gets more seats than the tories ( whoever their leader will be) but not enough to govern , so what happens then ? :-)

    I am not sure what Hillary Clinton has got to do with it, I am certainly not a supporter of hers and it doesn’t have anything to do with British politics.

    Because of the collapse in Tory and Labour support in Scotland over their Brexit stance, the SNP is projected to win 56 seats and get back everything they gained in 2015 and lost in 2017.

    However, in the scenario you outline, which I think means a situation whereby Scotland becomes independent, the House of Commons would contain 591 MPs, as opposed to the current 650.

    So what happens if Scotland was no longer relevant?  Instead of winning 339 seats, Labour would win 338 (as they are only projected to win one in Scotland at the moment).  With only 591 MPs, a majority requires 296 seats, not 326 as at present.

    Therefore with an independent Scotland, and with the Brexit Party still splitting the Tories’ vote, Labour would actually win a majority of around 84 on current polling.

    So in short… Scottish independence would remove a potential coalition partner, but it would also negate the need for one.

    However… if as per your scenario we have left the EU by then, what relevance will the Brexit Party have?  It’s hard to say, but presumably they will have folded and its supporters gone back to the Tories.

    In that case, an election would be more of a race between Labour and the Tories but both would still be suffering from their more pro-European supporters presumably dropping them because they facilitated Brexit.

    It’s what happened in the recent local elections, and it looks likely to happen in the European elections, where current polling has all pro-Brexit parties down (16 seats between them, mostly Tory losses but with Brexit Party actually doing worse than Ukip in 2014 and getting 22 seats not 24) and all pro-EU parties up (17 seats up, mostly Lib Dem).

    So… in your scenario, where Brexit has happened and Scotland has become independent, I would say either: a) Labour enters a coalition, or at least confidence-and-supply, with the Lib Dems, who will be much bigger or b) they can’t form a successful minority government and there is another election.

    If you read a few posts previously, Jamie, you will see what Deboer meant, he explained what he meant and apparently you missed that post. Click here and you will see his post.

    Yes indeed , and that was one of the reasons for the Common Market/EU in the first place. Happily we are on this side of the channel .

    Thanks Jamie , you are far ahead of me on British politics , i’m just on the sidelines . Interesting times indeed , especially if a heavily socialist government is formed.

    The future will show what happens ? I don’t think many people could have prophesied the occurrences in the UK of the last few years . :-)

    I don’t think Marine Le Pen will arrive in the top three after the first round in 2022. Her niece, on the other hand, might well do a lot better – Marion Maréchal (who deliberately dropped the -Le Pen from her double-barreled surname) is a lot smarter, younger, and more plausible than her aunt, as well as being fluent in English, enough to address at least one political rally in America.

    She might very well have done well -or do well as the case may be, with one major snag.

    She has withdrawn from the political arena, After retiring from politics in 2017, Marion Marechal-Le Pen enrolled in a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at EMLYON Business School.

    Fitter, her manifesto was nothing like a socialist manifesto. A bit general to say none of us, or very few people read her FN mainifesto. I must have heard her and her party a hundred times on TV in 2017 telling us what they wanted. I’ll put a link on and if you think that is a socialist mainfesto then you really must be joking. That is a pretty fascist manifesto to me https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-france-election-fn-manifesto-factbox/frances-le-pen-sets-out-presidential-election-manifesto-idUKKBN15J00B

    You mean that she secretly dresses up in funny uniforms and jackboots and struts around saluting and whacking a riding crop against her boots?

    Well – thanks for sharing that, – who knew? :good:

    I’m indebted to you for enlightening me.

    Oh dear Fitter can I suggest a little more water with your favorite tipple…..The link suggested nothing that your reply intimated, maybe you hit the wrong button and never went to the Reuters site…..
