Against his own published views, he supported Remain: David Cameron did the same, and fell on his sword as the UK voted for Brexit.
People don't like politicians who alter their opinions to get votes. Jeremy has made the terminal political error. He was never going to get elected before! A lame dog leader of the opposition.
Nicola Sturgeon is now faced with the prospect of being frapped out of the EU. Scotland's main trade partner is England. The income from North Sea oil has crashed.
North Sea oil is being sold at a loss – in the hope oil prices will rise again. It won't!
A 50x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmosphere takes 2000 V to set up – and then uses 10-17cc of regular water a year to generate 1.2 MW of heat – we can turn into 150 kW of electricity.
The grid will buy this for 450 million a year. No Fossil Fuels burn – no oil use. From regular water.
Which leaves Scotland with Whisky and holidays for the UK. Have you tried Irish Whiskey – a good drink. They taught the Scots how to distil the spirit.
North Sea oil belongs to the UK – so Scotland is asking to leave the UK and return to the EU – the least successful trading region in the world.
The most successful are the Nordic nations – Norway, Sweden etc.. They pay the EU a small amount for access to European free trade – this is what we should do.
And join with the Viking states – our relatives. We have much more in common with them, than the Mediterranean countries.
And they have no great political ambitions – unlike the Germans. Who still long for a greater Germany.
And the Scots should remember, to get open borders to the EU, they will have to pay England.
The Scots have had 4 referendums in 18 months. Scottish independence was rejected when we were all EU. Now Britain isn't, it has even less appeal as an idea.
