    There is no natural question tag for that.

    Those two independent clauses should be separated by a semicolon.

    Each one would attract its own question tag (two different ones) and the whole thing should be separated into two sentences or separated by a semicolon, as Rover said.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
