With all the uncertainty and piling on of debt associated with Brexit from this Conservative government,how much longer can we wait for them to begin to sort out what they are going to do about Article 50?
They have now increased debt to the stage that it is approaching 2 trillion pounds.
They are now borrowing further billions as announced by chancellor Hammond yesterday and giving Scotland a fraction of it to pay back to them.
Stubbornly they refuse to ask for the approval of parliament to examine their Brexit intentions and are heading back to the Supreme Court in the next couple of weeks to challenge the English High Courts judgement. Only this time Scotland gets involved in the case proclaiming the Scottish Claim of Right must be allowed so that the Scottish Government has a say.
The mess turns into a muddle and guddle and threatens to take everyone down with it.
It could well be the case that if the Condervatives are unsuccesful in their appeal and may decide to try and force an early general election to allow them to have their way.
Given the state that Labour is in these days, I would suggest that the Torys would probably increase their majority in England and leave us all at their mercy.
The thought doesn’t bear thinking about.
Should matters take that course of events, perhaps we should forget about having a second Scottish Independence referendum?
Instead… if the SNP have the gumption for it, they should go all out on seeking a mandate for Independence.
By making Independence the whole purpose of their manifesto it means that should they get a majority of MPs elected to Westminster Scotland has voted to become Independent without a specific referendum. Thatcher recognised this to be the case, but nobody at the time thought it remotely liable to happen.
Now it very much is possible if not probable?
All the YES supporters of all shades would pile onto voting for the SNP while the Unionists would be divided on who to vote for.
Many Scottish Labour Unionists would not vote Tory if Hell froze over, no matter the consequences. Many Torys would not vote Labour if it meant possibly losing the Tory majority in Westminster.
Something to think about is it not?
