If politicians don't keep their promises we might as well stick a pin in our voting papers at a general election because the Manifestos aren't worth the paper they're written on.

It's the same old story, if they don't like the result, keep trying.  The Scottish indy referendum being a classic example of this.

Why do we have to rely on Nissan... Perhaps the UK govt could use some of the money we used to give to the EU to establish a UK car, industry

Britain could set up its own automotive industry again using the £39 billion we won't now be forking out to Brussels. With electric motor technology about to explore worldwide this would be the perfect time to dump the internal combustion engine and go electric or at least go hybrid to begin with.

The £39b also invoves paying commitments, including a contribution to MEP pensions, 73 of whom were from the UK, plus a sum to help them find other "jobs".

It's not the annual amount that the UK would normally pay, which is far less.

Aside from that,  I thought £350m a week was supposed to go to the NHS, Or have we been looking at different buses?

You do love your hyperbole, don't you? Such drama! A vote is a vote and the majority wins, even if only by one vote. The winners get what they want and the losers don't. That's democracy.
Spare me your lectures, I do know how it works you know.

There were dire warnings concerning Scotland's economic future if it left the UK but Scots still voted for it and would again. For some, the economy isn't their priority.

IMO it really should be as “it’s all about the economy, stupid”.

It wasn't all about the economy in either the Scottish Independence Referendum and the Brexit Referendum, Money may make the world go round but people have other needs and desires too.

But the referendum was very clear. It was to Leave the EU rather than Remain. You lost. Get over it.

Some people may not care where the bus is going. If I want to get from A to B, I'd rather know. A problem is that neither the driver nor the bus company seems to know either.

Maybe I'll take a train. Oh wait, no trains.

Did I miss something  *%6^  In the referendum I voted in, Scotland voted to remain as part of the United Kingdom.

Out of the EU. No need for public transport, you won't actually be moving.
