If you're referring to the 2014 referendum, no, they didn't.

Are you rejecting the official result, based on 55.3% of registered electorate in a 84.59% turnout? or are you doing the thing where maths says blah blah?

You're the one who made the fallacious claim.

 

55.3% of 84.59% of the registered electorate is a long, long way short of 'the majority of people in Scotland'.

If I see someone posting immediately verifiable bullshit and pick them up on it they can go red in the face and stamp their feet as much as they want. It doesn't stop it being factually wrong. 

 

If you had accurately said 36.81% of the population voted to remain part of the UK then not a single soul could have quibbled. 

 

You chose to post a misleading statistic - you can either explain why or leave others to infer what they will. I don't really care - all I chose to do was point out an inaccuracy so for that you are most welcome.

In 2014, 3,623,344 votes were cast in the Scottish Referendum, which was 84.59% of the electorate. 

Of those votes, over 55.3% voted against Scotland becoming independent. 

 

This was the majority I was referencing.

Have you actually watched this?

Do you have a link to the next part of what Andrew Neil says here? 

 

I never bother clicking on the links he posts as they are all either wrong, half-truths or irrelevant.

 

The fact is that we will long be out of the EU before Scotland can vote on independence so what Andrew Neil may have said before the GE isn't up to date.

You may very well have been referencing it, but that is clearly - as can be seen by the first quoted post - not what you said.

 

55.3% of 3,632,344 amounts to 36.81% of the people of Scotland.

 

Perhaps you'll choose your words more carefully in future - just so you don't get accused of making shit up, an' all.

An opinion you're entitled to hold and state on this forum as long as you stick to the rules which I believe we both did.

 

My opinion is that 'haranguing' is just a little on the strong side to describe my posts but I can live with it.

 

Peace out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Until you post another misleading stat... :P :lol:

I have not posted a misleading statistic at any stage of our conversation,  and I know this because I have double-checked everything I have said.

*sigh...*

 

The very first post I picked up upon was where you stated 'the majority of people in Scotland'.

 

Use of the word 'majority' identifies this as a statistical use.

 

I have shown that 36.81% is NOT the majority of people in Scotland...it is barely over one third.

 

If you had simply stated that he majority of people who voted chose to remain in the UK I wouldn't have felt compelled to say anything but misleading statistics do get my goat and I will challenge them when I see them.

 

That is why I urged you to choose your claims more carefully.

 

Now...I'm done.

In 2014, there was a referendum. It was decided by a majority.

The majority voted against Scotland becoming an independent country.

If you're not being deliberately obtuse you're on the wind-up.

 

The majority of people who voted IS NOT THE SAME AS the majority of the population.

Yes, I understand this. I first made this breakthrough when I was in my teens. 

 

I am saying that a democratic vote happened in 2014,

So it seems we are in agreement. 

Your daft, pointless points, have been quite stupid, and this conversation with you has been ridiculous.

 

Please take my advice here- stop being an idiot.

Poorest argument going.

 

2014 was won on false pretences to say the least.

 

Now we should just abide the same liars and charlatans.

 

The UK is in aright state. A new referendum could in theory put this properly all to bed for the foreseeable but they won't as they know they've been shown up for what they are.

Got a link to the Andrew Neil and Boris Johnson interview? 
 

If you click the Twitter link, the full 10 min video is linked to YouTube in the next comment.

 

Twitter only allows 2 min 20 sec uploads, but you knew that?

Whens Indy Ref 2 happening? Sturgeon said 2020 so surely she's set a date. Would like to think she didn't con people into voting SNP at the last general election on something they dont have the power to deliver.

SNP are here to stay with or without self governance. Great, even just for the wind ups. Unionists spitting feathers, but, but they're a one issue party/cult. Can't wait to see wait to see what bribes Boris has for us and the next load of propaganda for the unthinking.

Im cock a hoop at living in a SNP controlled cooncil and having the SNP in charge of Scottish Devolution.

Time the SNP stopped playing this wee WM game. Let the opposition run it, but block all Tory legislation. Oh! Before I forget. Remember EVEL? You know, English votes for English law. I take SVSL means only Scottish MPs vote for Section 30?.
