And a referendum is what we want. Kind of going round in circles here.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
It remains the policy of the Scottish Government to give the people of Scotland an informed choice about their future and providing up to date information about independence is part of that.
Indy papers clearly predicated on a referendum.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
Nobody is proposing an unlawful vote. There is no question of an unlawful vote taking place so it's really not a legitimate term to use.
So how would you characterise the indy papers being prepared by ScotGov at public expense?
 
In reply to @MhairiHunter
Disnae make the prep for an unlawful vote legal.

And, I know you know this, but it was a court that blocked the vote, in a case brought by the Scottish Government supported by the SNP.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
The bit about there being no moral or democratic justification for Westminster blocking a vote.

In reply to @KennyFarq
If something is currently illegal, how would one change that?
Replying to @JUProctor
I think you know the answer to that question. Section 30 order. Of which there is zero prospect.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
I think this is why it won’t happen.

She didnae sound very equivocal last week.
 
Nor for the first time, Andy Wightman telling it like it is.
I have never supported an indyref in 2023 and I don’t support one at all until there is sustained support for it (referendums should be about affirming popular opinion not taking a divided electorate marginally over the 50% threshold) 1/2
 
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
So the Scottish electorate are subject to a UK veto on what they vote for. Doesn't look like any kind of democracy to me.
Replying to @humol62
Can't spend public money on an unlawful enterprise.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
The UK Government has stated that the only way to get one is to have cross-party support and the support of civic Scotland. As it was a clear manifesto commitment from the two governing parties who won a majority in Holyrood, you could argue that building a case is ...
Replying to @JUProctor
The manifesto commitment was for Holyrood to hold a referendum. That policy has now been shown to be unlawful.
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
There was an election in Scotland and the parties who supported independence won. Are you saying they should have been stopped pursuing that manifesto commitment because they never asked the UK gov first?
Replying to @humol62
No, but now that manifesto promise has been declared illegal, why should public money be spent on preparing for it?
 
In reply to @KennyFarq
Oh for heaven’s sake, what next. Although I suppose those papers might be a bit more inspiring if they weren’t written by civil servants!
Replying to @joycemcm
They do lack a certain poetry.
 
In reply to @murdo_mc_
Marvellous, so it’s not a de facto referendum then. Sorted.
Can't believe somebody fell for that one so quickly!
 
This story in The Sunday Times asks a searching question: If a unilateral indyref by ScotGov is illegal, why is the ScotGov spending £1.5m a year on indyref preparations, including its series of policy papers on indy?

This interesting - and provocative - point adds a new twist to the debate about "denial of democracy".
In reply to @KennyFarq
Yep, also by trying to recalibrate the next UK general election as a de facto referendum in Scotland, Sturgeon is effectively disenfranchising 4 million Scots from that election. Whoops, democracy - eh?

Really good overview of how Scottish politics has been changed by last week's supreme court decision.
Sturgeon is forced to court disaster with last roll of dice

So, according to SNP folk in my mentions: # Nationalism isn't divisive # Of course nationalism is divisive, it's like all other great causes like winning women the vote [sic] # Of course it's divisive but all politics is divisive so that's okay

Remember now that

Wow

is a #Scots word
 
In reply to @joycemcm
I so can’t be arsed with this. Change divides. The ‘votes for women’ movement was angry and divisive in its time. His ‘me angel, she devil’ narrative stinks. He clearly doesn’t like her. His big problem is the voters do.
I shouldn’t have to say this, but the campaign for Scottish independence is not remotely the same as the fight for women’s suffrage.

I think you will find that c1986/87 Ms Whaley would not have been into handsome young journalists but instead would have loved a smelly 16 year old school boy, had she only met me.
 
The Singing Detective is coming back, and with it my 1980s dreams of someday being Joanne Whalley’s boyfriend.

If the desk bangers are singing your praise, aren't you doing something wrong?

Mate, I’m shallow enough to welcome any praise.
