Our efforts at compromise have instead been met with a brick wall of intransigence...
UK membership of the single market was ruled out with no prior consultation with the Scottish government or with the other devolved administrations - leaving us facing not just Brexit, but a hard Brexit...
There has been talk of special deals for the car industry and others, but a point blank refusal to discuss in any meaningful way a differential approach for Scotland.
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, in a press conference announcing her intent to call for a second Scottish independence referendum (in late 2018 - early 2019).   Some guy from The Institute for Fiscal Studies is saying that an independent Scotland might have to increase taxes!!!!! Clearly, this alone should terrify all the good people of Scotland / Alba into remaining under the kind and gentle care of a Tory government for fifteen more years, and accepting stagnant wages for all except the most hot-shot currency traders (I'm not knocking their economic studies per se, it just seems that the concept of people having political choices to make is far beyond their ken.)
