S.N.P. ?

Recommended Posts

Having seen the light at the end of the tunnel on Brexit, we now have the constant drone of the SNP over Independence.   Quite rightly, the Gov insist that the matter was decided by a "once in a generation" referendum in 2014, which voted to remain in the UK.   But, Mz Krankie, instead of getting down to tackle the job of devolved political management, which isn't going too well; has returned to her one trick pony of independence.  They conflate the idea of elections and referendums with democracy, to the point where they could argue for regular referendums, no doubt to the point where they get the answer they want, bit like their remainer chums in England.   They should look at their own history, in which THEIR Parliament agreed to the Union with England, basically because they were bankrupt -  no doubt, if they did get independence, this would be repeated in due course, when English subsidies dried up.

But if they get independence they can join the EU and apply for their funding. At least that is what the mindset seems to be. They only want independence from the English, which will be a great saving for us straight away.

47 MP's gone at a stroke with associated secretaries, office staff assigned to them, expenses and second home and travel allowances.

Fewer expensive legal challenges through the high courts.

As an added bonus no more haggis in the shops..🤣

I don't know if it is still on the statute books ,but i wonder if  "Dirk money" will come back. Apparently, it was danger money for people venturing into Scotland & having to deal with Border Reivers &  other  Scottish brigands .

Maybe the SNP should be told they can have their vote. However if the Shetland Islands vote to stay in the UK then the Shetland Island (and most of the oil reserves) would remain part of the UK.

The Shetland Islands are many miles away from Scottish mainland and never used to be part of Scotland, they have never voted SNP either. As Nicola Sturgeon and her party are such believers in democracy they would no doubt agree.

What the SNP appear to want, like the Remoaners in England, is a Neverendum;  continued until they get the decision they want.   The evidence suggests they can't even manage the devolved powers they already have, with Education and Health taking a dive under their stewardship.  Whilst in principle, the idea of devolution was good imo; providing a structure for the dispersal of funding support throughout the UK;  which should have included the English Regions and countered the poverty the North and Midlands; sadly Prescott didn't impose that option, leaving it to be hijacked by Nationalists.   Yorkshire for example has a larger population than Scotland.
