We both have family living both in Scotland and England plus other parts of the world.
I bet there could be far more people Scots or of Scots decent living in England, Wales & N.I. than in Scotland.
Quite a large proportion of those living in Scotland are from Irish or N.I families, OK a lot may have gone over to Ireland in the 1700/1800's. There is also that a lot of Scots people who do not realize that 4 or 5 generations ago their ancestors came for outside Scotland.
One of ancestor Families - born in Ireland then to India then England and finally in Scotland, their descendants in both Scotland & England.
The 1851 on. Census returns you see loads of people born Ireland.
They could never ever grow enough food to feed themselves and may well loose the benefit of UK food supply chain, cost etc. Its not economic sense as far as I see.
From all accounts the SNP is a pretty useless lot.
