Not the same referendum

Not the same referendum published on

I keep hearing nonsense from some persistent No/Leave voters saying Scotland needs to “respect the result of the 2014 referendum.”  It’s annoying, it’s insulting.  We DO respect the result of the 2014 referendum, we respect that a majority of Scots voted No.  We lost by 55% and we respect that.  But here’s the thing.  The 2014 referendum was for independence from a country that no longer exists.  As of last week, the United Kingdom that 55% of Scots chose to be part of, no longer exists.  This isn’t a do over referendum we’re calling for, it’s a whole new one, one we’ve never voted in before.

UPDATE: 16 March 2017 – I’ve updated this one to use more colour than it did before and have added shadows.  I’ve also added text to the final panel as there seemed to be a lot of confusion as to what this comic was trying to show when I first published it.
