I know they are dead now John, no one is arguing that, the point i made was the people of Scotland never voted for a union with England, the rest of your post is moot points.



The 'people of Scotland' did not have the right to vote in the first place. Your use of the word 'we' is the problem due to the aforementioned fact and that every person around then is long dead. This leaves the ones that could vote and most did back the formation of the Union.
Ohh and 'we' did not vote for another referendum, like back then it was the politicians.

Anyway i started this so as not to be off topic in the Indy thread but this is now turned into a Scotland thread so I wont entertain any more rubbish about twisting historical facts to suit an agenda

Catalonia: No sign of movement as Spanish deadline looms



The leader of Spain's Catalonia region has attended a commemoration less than 24 hours before a Spanish deadline to give his final say on independence.
Carles Puigdemont and other senior politicians paid tribute in Barcelona to a Catalan leader who was executed under Franco in the Civil War.
He said his government was "against aggression and against imposed rule".
Spain has given him until 10:00 (08:00 GMT) on Monday to clarify whether he has or has not declared independence.
If he confirms that he has, he will have until Thursday to withdraw the declaration or Catalonia, which has substantial autonomy, faces the prospect of direct rule from Madrid.

On Sunday, Mr Puigdemont and others including the Mayoress of Barcelona, Ada Colau, visited the grave of Lluis Companys near Montju´c Castle on the 77th anniversary of his execution by firing squad.
The spokesman for Spain's ruling Popular Party, Pablo Casada, warned this week that Mr Puigdemont might end up like Companys, clarifying later that he had only meant he might end up in prison.

Jagz the 'we' as in the people you refer to died hundreds of years ago, they did not have the vote then nor anywhere else in Europe. There was no widespread democracy prior to that either, all our famous kings did not ask the wider public if they wanted to be ruled over but they did rule whether the lowly man or woman wanted them or not. For you ignore what happened in Parliaments simply because there wasn't 'one adult one vote' is laughable. Scotland had a parliament who sat in chambers and passed laws.
Going by your logic then 'we' did not go to war in 1914 because women couldn't vote or in 1939 because adults under 21 were not allowed to vote until 1970. Hell, it was only recently that 16 and 17 year olds were given the right to vote in Scotland so does that mean everything prior to that does not count. rolleyes.gif

No, my "we" is the majority of the people of Scotland who had no say whatsoever in the decision to join England in a union.

Your "we" is the "such a parcel of rogues in a nation" (we're bought and sold for English gold) did, no twist in history at all, it's a fact.

The ones that did vote for a union were not doing it for the majority of the people of Scotland but for their own self interest and profit.

But you knew that as well. yes.gif


Of course they weren't but thats neither here nor there, there was a vote in the Scottish parliament and that was to dissolve said parliament to form a political union with England.
