A CONFUSED Brexit voter has called for a fence to be erected along the Border - because Scotland doesn’t ‘want to be part of England’.

The voter, named as Vince in a video released by Sky News, was quizzed about his opinions following the referendum on membership of the European Union.

The tyre fitter, from Hull, said: “I voted out... I think it’s good for the country because the country wants to stand on its own two feet.

“We rely on other countries, now we’ll have to rely on ourselves.”

The interviewer asks Vince: “And you wanted to talk about Scotland?”

I thought Scotland was a part of England but it’s obvious they don’t want to be, do they?

Vince replies: “If they want to stay in it, what they’ll have to do is join up with EU, go to use their Euro and then we can just put a fence right across and then they can get their own passports.

“I thought Scotland was a part of England but it’s obvious they don’t want to be, do they?”

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon held talks with high-ranking Brussels officials last week in a bid to make Scotland’s case for remaining in the bloc.

In last month’s referendum, 62 per cent of Scots voted to remain in the EU.
