The big political mistake regarding the SNP is
Westminster pandering to
them and treating them as some sort of quasi sovereign government, they aren’t
anything of the sort.
Holyrood is a devolved administration which was wrongly hyped as being outside the British system of government.
Westminster is to Holyrood what Holyrood is
to Glasgow City Council. You don’t see calls for sovereignty by Glasgow City
Council to become a sovereign state.
If Nicola Sturgeon wasn’t angry over Brexit, she could easily find another scapegoat to bleet about as cause for a second independence referendum for
The vote to leave the EU in June 2016 was a British wide vote, but the SNP

Article 50 is going to be triggered because of the ‘will of people’, or if you
prefer ‘direct democracy’ or just plain ‘sovereignty’.
Did the people make the right choice?
Paris, one of the most historic and beautiful cities in the world is being reduced to little better than a slum ghetto. Have a look at the pictures and ask yourself do you want this here? Why aren’t the politicians who espouse multiculturalism getting their ‘selfies’ taken down in the gutter amidst the stench and squalor?
The people of the
United Kingdom including one
million Scots saw through the lies and made the right decision by voting for
Brexit. Some people voted purely on the issue of curtailment of immigration,
others such as myself voted for Brexit on the main issue, that issue was ‘sovereignty’.
If you believe the SNP argument that an independent
Scotland can be sovereign in the EU, you have to
ask why they aren’t pushing for an independent Scotland
to be sovereign in the UK.
The reason is painfully obvious, Scotland cannot afford to pay its
way and still maintain the current levels of spending that it enjoys via the
Barnett formula. It is for this reason that the SNP will not embrace federalism
because it lets the cat out of the bag that a federal Scotland would
be forced to have a significantly reduced standard of living, services and high
And Nicola Sturgeon can’t sell that to
Sturgeon is attacking Theresa May who she says is acting as a 'high handed' PM, there is the usual issue of threats as demands a fresh Scottish independence referendum.
As to Sturgeon’s claim of having a 'cast iron' mandate to call one that is entirely bogus. The only thing her continual claims of mandate do is damage economic certainty in
Scotland as a place to invest.
Is there any substance to Nicola Sturgeon’s claims of the PM is being 'intransigent'?
The answer is no, Nicola Sturgeon isn’t part of the
UK team, which is why her knowledge of ‘events’
is limited, having failed to work with Westminster
as ‘partners’, they effectively excluded themselves as being active in the
I don’t understand why fears are mounting in Downing Street because although Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP can call for a second independence referendum, they can only ask, they still need a Section 30 Order from
Westminster to run it.
has to do is say No!
Saying No, doesn’t as some people say cause a constitutional crisis, if Theresa May buys into the concept of neverendum, she will create a rod for her own back. Are the Scottish Conservatives in a position to win the vote and become the Scottish Government?
Their success isn’t due to anything other than Labour voters switching because of the weakness shown by Kezia Dugdale on the
Union, this is hardly a basis for ‘declaration of future’
government don’t you agree? What Scotland lacks is a centre right
nationalist party which would change the political dynamic in Scottish
politics, that doesn’t exist at present.
Sturgeon at present is saying she had yet to make a decision on whether to propose a new vote, saying she was still 'seeking compromise with the UK government'. I can save her the trouble, the
government isn’t going to pander to her or her whims for the single market for Scotland, or a
deal on immigration or anything else that places UK National Security at risk.
When you are seen as a bunch of malcontents, don’t be surprised if no one wants to work with you, Nicola Sturgeon has painted the SNP into a corner.
Sturgeon isn’t going to be entertained while Brexit talks are on-going and it may take two years for those talks to finish up and be signed off, is Sturgeon going to be talking about indy for the next two years like a demented parrot? If a campaign is run unofficially, it is doubtful it will be sanctioned by the Electoral Commission and that raises all kinds of questions, especially of public money is used.
Nicola Sturgeon is on to plums!
Theresa May should just ignore Nicola Sturgeon and let her play her stupid silly games, and when things come crashing down around her ears then act. The next Scottish independence campaign by Nicola Sturgeon is the longest plea for political suicide in the world, and we should make sure that we provide all the necessary help to allow her to cut her own political throat. When her political corpse hits the ground with a rather large thud, watch the panic set in at the SNP as they realise that there isn’t a leader in waiting standing in the Wings!
Do you think post defeat, Nicola Sturgeon will be opening corner shops and supermarkets, since it is doubtful big business will come a calling offering jobs in Fortune 500 companies!
