Typical playground politics from the Scots Natz!
They are elected representatives. You cant represent your electorate (the ones that voted for you, & the ones that didnt, because that is democracy) if you stomp out of the chamber & out of the discussion, like a child with a petted lip.
Pure stunt that was obviously orchestrated by Nippy Sweety.
GET ON WITH THE DAY JOB! Peoples jobs & futures are being sidelined by this one policy party.
The people made their choice, the 45% (less now) just dont want to accept the democratic decision.

As a pseudo yank, you should be familiar with the term 'outlaw'. I agree with this old fashioned idea.
If by your actions you place yourself 'outside the law', Fuck you! You decided to go there, you no longer deserve the rights and protections that law abiding citizens can expect in a civilised society.
I bet those 2 guys understood this, & would not complain. Hey, they are with Allah & have their quota of virgins. all is good.

As soon as anyone chooses to fight for IS, they no longer have the right to be called 'British', or expect the rights expected of British nationals.
As an expat I would expect you to understand this.
As painful as it may be for the families of these latest 2 'Jihadi's' to see their family members killed, they effectively died the day they joined up with a terrorist organisation. Their families deserve sympathy, but the individuals do not. How many innocents did they rape & murder before they were taken out??
As Bill Hicks would have said "The world just got a little lighter"

Just as well WE voted no in the Referendum.
Would have been very embarassing for an 'independent' country asking England for electricity when Longannet closes next year!

Of course socialism means higher taxes (& borrowing & spending).
Socialism is based on the assumption that the government knows best how to spend YOUR money.
The farming & (especially) the fishing industry are not "being strangled by Westminster". That is a direct result of being a member of the club (EU), dictated by Brussels. A typical "Socialist" behaviour of sharing resources among the members.
Which leads me to the single most important reason to vote against 'independence' from London.
The power is no longer at Westminster, it's in Brussels. The argument is 40 years too late.
All this nonsense about being independent, yet still wanting to keep sterling.
How independent is a country that depends on another country setting interest rates that suits its own economy (ask Ireland, Portugal & Greece how that works out, the Germans seem quite happy). Why should rUK taxpayers act as lender of last resort through the Bank of England to a Scottish Government? Bet that would go down a bomb at the ballot box - all of the liability with no obvious gain.
Anyway, as one of Europes smallest countries, seeking entry into the EU (which would be granted after long negotiations, as long as the Spanish don't say No), you can GUARANTEE that an independent Scotland would have to do as it was told to join the club. Adopt the Euro, join Schengen, lose it's share of the British rebate, and all the other opt-outs that GB has fought for.
Emperor (in waiting) Salmond knows all of this, but does not want the voters to wise up to it, he wants you all to vote for some Brig O' Doon fantasy where the oil will pay for everything forever.
All you people with a mortgage consider this. If like me you have a mortgage that is with an British bank or building society (& one way or another most of them are - even RBS & Lloyds TSB through UK government ownership), what happens if Scotland gets independence but doesn't keep the pound?? Your mortgage is in another currency & at risk from currency fluctuations. If the Scottish Bawbee or whatever it is halves in value compared to Sterling, the debt on your property is DOUBLED.
Scaremongering?? Better believe its scary.

Excellent point. Scotland has 73 MPs in Westminster Parliament...
Jocky, I think you will find there have NEVER been 73 MP's from Scotland (according to Wiki).
If you cant even be arsed to search the web for accurate info then it is obvious you will not have an accurate argument.
The number of MP's from Scotland (as opposed to the number of Scottish MP's) was reduced from 72 to 59 in 2005 to partially address "The West Lothian Question", because with the creation of the home for useless ex-councillors (Holyrood) the electorate in Scotland were (are) over-represented.
