Well the SNP have had a revelation, have woken up and ,it would seem are trying to wrest the ability to determine our own destiny away from Westminster.… This should have been one of the first things on the agenda when we sent 56 MP’s down there in May. Not only that but this should have been a very prominent item in the manifesto produced in the run up to the general election. It it had,then surely with any vestige of the merest nod to democracy this would have forced the Tories to concede to such a request. After all they agreed to the last referendum with a majority of only one n the Scottish elections.
Mind you if you think back to the run up to the general election, the Snp were terrified of any mention of independence. This position was both unwise and illogical after all if they had only looked at their own constitution they would have seen that independence is their raison d’eter .
So they have belatedly managed to get around to it , does anyone think that they might also start to address the reasons we lost the referendum and instead of trying to persuade no voters who have no intention of voting yes to vote for the SNP on the basis that they are doing well for the people of Scotland ( under the union) try to persuade no voters who would have liked to have voted yes that the nonsense put out by the BBC, the national press and the cabal of Labour,Tories and the Lib Dems was all dishonestly wrong, because until this is done there is absolutely no chance of going into another referendum. Now we have already lost 14 months in addressing these matters , matters like pensions and the monetary situation in an independent Scotland.
To me and a hell of a lot of people , this is the basics, if in deed the SNP are serious in abiding by their constitution and progressing towards our goal without delay.
I keep saying this , but we need a road map to guide us along the road to that goal. Even the Mayor of Catalonia suggested such at the recent conference in Aberdeen.
So come on SNP ! Get your finger out and start acting like the party of independence and not simply part of the establishment.
We are still on that road to independence .
