I don't believe they have. @)(++(*
The "losers"have obviously voiced their opinion, hence the result in the General Election.

If I recall the numbers correctly, the SNP manage to consistently garner some 40% of the electorate which in anyone's book is not a majority of the population. I think any further referendum is many years away despite the wee crankie lookalike's protestations.

You could say the same about the Tories.

I believe their vote at this election was 48% of the Scottish electorate as opposed to Boris being elected by 43%.of the UK electorate.
Your reference to "the wee krankie" does you no favour at all!
It does sniff of desperation.
You really cannot deny the result of the election.

I think the majority of Scots are reviewing the situation as a result of the election and I don't think it is so much what the result was in Scotland but more what it was in England.

I don't know how long it will take to review the situation but I think the debate is no longer about independence more about survival.

I think any future referendum on Scottish Independence should include the whole of the UK. In my opinion the result would be a resounding 'Yes!!!'

I can see Scotland plunging headlong into a financial crisis some years down the line if independence ever become a reality and this time it won't have the UK and the Bank of England to bail it out.

It must not be forgotten that a million or more first and second generation Scots live and work outside the country and have no vote on independence.  Given that there are only 4 million registered electors in Scotland, that is a sizeable number of ethnic Scots who are now deprived of a vote in their home country.

Who have deprived themselves of a vote in their home country, surely, just as anyone does who emigrates?

Would you put your trust in Boris's integrity about anything?  I reckon people might consider that if we are going to go down with all our banners flying we will have a soft landing because England will be there before us.

The Tories under Thatcher gave ex pats living abroad voting rights in UK elections sometime in the 80's.

It was the Scottish Government which stopped Scottish ex-pats from voting in their Independence referendum. Scottish ex-pats can vote in the United Kingdom's elections just like every other ex-pat.

It goes without saying that citizens of the United Kingdom are entitled to vote in whichever area of the country they live and where they are registered to vote.

You are wrong that it was the Scottish Government which prevented ex-pats from voting in the referendum. 
The UK government also vetoed the proposal.
