As I have watched Lord Wallace come out of the woodwork, for the first time since he made a total Ass of himself in the the first of the BBCs Independence debates, I noticed that he really hasn’t learned any lessons from it.
There he was on Newsnight Scotland being Interviewed about this new private committee he was heading up as the Advocate General for Scotland, to examine a raft of issues..EEC membership, The Pound, Financial Sector Regulation…All of which we have heard of many times before.
But on Newsnight, there he was spouting off Again about the Scottish Governments ability to hold a Legal Referendum without Westminsters consent through a Section 30 order , depending on certain conditions of course!
If you were thinking this is all Groundhog Day, you may well be right!
He even sat there with a stupid supercilious grin, when questioned about the Orkney and Shetlands seceding from Scotland to remain In the UK, should Scotland vote YES. He wordlessly seemed to suggest that there were moves afoot for such an event to take place…Total Bunkum of course, but slimeball material at its best.
I always wondered how Lord Wallace as the Westminsters senior Law Officer for Scotland should have such a lofty position..He was only a family solicitor for a very short time, before spending the rest of his life in politics…Yet he is suddenly a prime authority on the Law?
But this is all of course about all the BetterTogether mob have at their disposal…Going Round and Round and Round again in ever decreasing circles like a daft dog chasing its tail.
All the while chanting…You Cannae Do that!!
The bad news for them, and they know it, Is that we damn well can!
Whats more, there is a meeting of the Unionist partys taking place, with their select group of invited Constitutional Experts, in order to frame a question which is more to their liking than the one proposed by the Scottish Government.
If ever there was an example of a colossal waste of time and money, this is it!
No matter what question they come up with, it will be a total non starter.
The Chair of the electoral commission was also on newsnight recently, and he confirmed in no uncertain terms, that the only question they were at liberty to even look at or even test, was the question put by the Scottish Government, they could not consider any other question put by anyone else!
So what do the Unionists think they are playing at? God alone only knows.
The only possible way that they could get their preferred question examined, would be if they could get it to be passed as the Scottish Governments preferred question in the Scottish Parliament…and given that they would have to have a majority in that parliament for that to happen, they don’t even have a snowballs chance in Hell!
If the Referendum was to be held on the question, ” Who do you think has the lead in pure stupidity?” They would win it by a country mile!
But seeing as this is not ever likely to be in dispute at this rate, they will just have to carry on as they are, while the rest of Scotland leaves them far behind, to have our New Beginnings, while they rant and rave over the same old grim fairy tales.
