Brexit: PM is 'willing to listen to options' on Scotland

Prime Minister Theresa May has told First Minister Nicola Sturgeon she is "willing to listen to options" on Scotland's future relationship with the European Union.

But after talks in Edinburgh, Mrs May appeared unwilling to consider a second referendum on Scottish independence.

She said people in Scotland sent a "very clear message" in 2014.

Listen is all she should do because Scotland is part of the uK and her people voted in significant numbers to remain part of the United Kingdom.  When it comes to Brexit and the vote to leave the European Union then I think that decision is final too.

It really annoys me that the sore losers on the remain side want a second referendum.  Is that how democracy works now?  If you don't get the result you want have another vote?

As for Nichola Sturgeon, in my opinion she's merely using this as a way to boost her own career.  Scotland voted "No" and that result should stand also!

Think Again; don't you dare tell me what I voted for. You come across as a patronising idiot.

@ Charmbrights we need another referendum (election) to get things right! Uk didn't really vote Brexit, just that it wanted reform of the powers that be in this country.

The vote against the EU was simply a protest vote. The referendum was really an Opinion Poll.

The result would not be the same if the vote was held again.

@ Charmbrights, Thank goodness all those countries you listed have shown us in the UK the dirty tricks that Governments play trying to get the result they want. But the British Brexit voters are wise to these tricks and won't allow it to happen here.
OUT means OUT.

But that is the way ALL referenda work in the EU. You put it to the vote and if you get the "wrong" answer you have another one until you get the "right" answer and then no more votes.

For example Denmark 1992/1993, Ireland 2001/2002 and 2008/2009.

Greece 2015 voted against accepting the bail-out conditions by 61% to 49% but the EU ignored this and the Greek government caved in and accepted the conditions.
