NO IndyRef2 Allowed


It is almost like Theresa May has become flushed with her minority government achieving total domination over the Westminster parliament and the modern dictatorship of Spains right wing government using extreme measures in denying the Catalan people a say over their self determination, that she has become dictatorial enough to openly say that the people of Scotland will not be allowed to have another say on the matter of Independence.

The following exchange happened  during Prime Ministers Question Time.

From Hansard:


“Following our successful Offshore Europe exhibition last week in Aberdeen, can the Prime Minister assure me and my constituents that support for the oil and gas industry will be at the heart of the industrial strategy so that we can maximise economic recovery in the North sea? Does she agree that the biggest threat to the industry would be the instability of a second, divisive independence referendum?”


“My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We have already given significant support to the oil and gas industry. I was pleased, some months ago, to visit Aberdeen and to visit the technology centre for the oil and gas industry. It is doing really interesting work looking not just at existing fields but at decommissioning work and how it can export its knowledge and expertise across the world. He is absolutely right that what people and businesses want is the certainty of knowing that Scotland will remain in the United Kingdom and that there will not be a second independence referendum.”

That response from Theresa May, with the spoken emphasis on the part highlighted certainly had more than a few Scots who wanted to be masochistic enough to watch Prime Minister Non Answers on TV spitting their coffee out all over their screens and shaking their heads in disbelief. Indeed there may have been a few TV sets which joined the endangered objects list.

However, all is not as it seems…..
While Theresa May most certainly uttered these words, taken in context of the whole sentence it is something entirely different… There is no denial of Scots to have a second referendum but an assertion without any evidence that the Scots people want the certainty of knowing Scotland will not have a second Independence referendum.Oh sure some would want that, but about as many would certainly disagree with that statement.

Indeed If Theresa May actually really did officially come out and say such a thing, then the one sure certainty is that not only would Scotland most certainly have one, and we will assuredly do so in any case, but she would just as certainly absolutely guarantee that Scots would by a large majority stuff the words right back down her throat with a resounding ….. OH YES!!!!

Indeed, that would be the one credible scenario where UDI (Unilateral Declaration of Independence) could occur, thus proving her words prophetic, but not in the way she intended.



About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

  1. I was reading that she did indeed say those words,and after reading a post which said so,there were comments saying she never said those words.I’m glad I could read it again and would say she did mean she would NOT allow us another referendum on independence.This is not up to the leader of the Tory party and of a minority government,who buys votes to hang onto power.This is up to us Scots to decide and be prepared to thwart all the new lies the Westminster government.I shall of course share the blog Rod makes better reading than many other outlets,thank you.

    I left a comment on the blog so enough said from me,Rod is to be trusted above many other sources of news and comments.

    I agree about trusting Rod, Charles. For anyone who has doubts on that score though, Hansard is a reliable check IMO. I have certainly never been given cause to doubt its authenticity. On this occasion I have no need to check as I distinctly remember this interchange being shown on BBC mis-Reporting Scotland. I wonder who initiated this manufacturing of misleading trivia to sound like news? Which national broadcaster is in the business of making up such artificial incidents? Are there any MPs that you know of who are happy to ask questions at the behest of their Line Manager?
