HOLYROOD ELECTION ANALYSIS: Sturgeon dupes Scotland into UK constitutional cul-de-sac

Unless and until she leads Scotland to Independence, Sturgeon and the SNP will have failed the Scottish people In a simple, one-dimensional, sense Sturgeon is right to say that Scotland’s Independence lies in the hands of the people. But as SNP leader, and now again First Minister of Scotland, she has mis-led (if not actually duped) the people into voting AGAINST Scotland’s Independence. This is because of her stonkingly stupid (and Independence-defeating) ‘both votes SNP’ campaign. Seen from Sturgeon’s perspective, this campaign worked. It resulted in 64 SNP MSPs winning a seat in Holyrood with an average vote share of

Vote YES-2 Scottish Independence in May 2021 – and let’s turn the Holyrood poll into a single-issue Scottish Independence election – just like Ireland did successfully in 1918

New Year is traditionally a time for making resolutions.  Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party has already made its resolution – which is to achieve democratic, constitutional Independence for Scotland. The SNP also has this resolution as its number one goal… But you’d have to look hard to find any action on this policy from the leadership of the SNP (with some honourable exceptions) which has mired itself in quagmires of its own making. All the other me-too Indy list parties which came after Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party – set up and registered in 2017 – could have combined to stand on

SNP leadership in panic over new Independence list-party, warns Kenny MacAskill, SNP MP + former Scot-Govt Justice Minister

  By Kenny MacAskill, MP Longstanding SNP members are getting frustrated and need evidence that the powers that be in the party still believe in that ‘old-time religion’. There are good arguments to be made against new independence list parties. A plethora standing in every region, all polling low numbers, could indeed cost the SNP seats and harm the cause. However, the response by senior party figures has been misguided to say the least, veering from panic to authoritarian diktat. But strident insistence that “Both Votes SNP” always delivers maximum electoral success is arrant nonsense, denying electoral reality under the

When I interviewed you face to face for the Sunday Times in Scotland, you said that ‘things only change in Scotland

New poll shows that Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party – with former SNP leader Alex Salmond as a leading candidate – is set to win 23 MSP seats and become second-largest party in Scottish Parliament

If led by Alex Salmond, Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party would become the second-largest party in Holyrood with around 23 MSPs, according to the results of an independent new Scottish opinion poll. The results of the independent Survation survey show that 28% of existing SNP voters would cast their ‘2nd vote’ in favour of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party (SIRP) in the next Scottish Parliament election if Alex Salmond was top of the ballot paper. Independent analysis of the actual votes cast in 2016 Scottish Parliament elections – and then allocating around a third (33%) of the otherwise ‘wasted’ SNP 2nd-list votes

Only by working with Scots Indy-List Referendum party can SNP achieve Scottish Independence (even if SNP win 70 MSPs) Here’s how:

  The SNP – on its own – cannot achieve Independence for Scotland.     It never has. Because even if the SNP won every Scottish seat in the Westminster parliament, they’d always be outvoted by the other 600 Tory / Labour / Unionist MPs. And it never will. Because the English Unionist parties (all based in London) always gain sufficient Holyrood MSPs to prevent the SNP declaring Independence. We have been at ‘peak SNP’ for the past decade, during which the party has admirably won the Holyrood elections to the Scottish parliament and also won the majority of Scots MP seats

Precedent set by ex-British prime minister David Cameron opens new legal appeal route for Scottish Independence Referendum

A new legal appeal for UK permission to hold second referendum on Scottish Independence could remedy the SNP’s failure to put Scotland’s Independence first by not backing Theresa May’s British Brexit in return for Westminster’s permission to hold second Scottish Independence Referendum in 2019. A valid and grounded legal appeal to the Court of Session in Edinburgh – and possibly thereafter on appeal to the UK Supreme Court in London – could force British prime minister Boris Johnson to let the SNP hold a second Scottish Independence Referendum This new appeal – which some elements within the SNP are only

UK CBI warns that ‘no-deal’ Brexit bourach will ‘devastate’ Scotland’s economy

Independent analysis shows that a no-deal Brexit could hit Scotland’s economy to the tune of £14bn a year. New findings published by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Scotland, reveal that Scotland would be “significantly exposed” to the adverse economic impact of a no-deal Brexit scenario. Tracy Black, Director of CBI Scotland, said this would have a “devastating” impact on Scotland’s economy, with the annual loss of £14bn by 2034 being “more than annual public spending on hospitals, GP surgeries and other health services across Scotland.” Impact of a no-deal Brexit across the UK: http://www.cbi.org.uk/insight-and-analysis/impact-of-a-no-deal-brexit-across-the-uk/ Mark R Whittet, leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum
