Case for Scotland’s second Independence Referendum boosted by Tory secrecy over Brexit economic fall-out (just like Labour’s ban on the McCrone N. Sea oil bombshell report)

The Brit-Govt is refusing to publish its secret report showing Scotland will ‘lose most from Brexit’ – just like Brit-Govt refused to publish the famous McCrone report in 1975 showing that Scotland would become as rich as Norway on Independence. Mark R Whittet, Leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party today calls for the UK government’s Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) to publish all analysis about the impact of Brexit on Scotland – following reports the department’s former Chief of Staff that bombshell findings have been withheld.

As evidenced by the (attached) photograph, it appears that members and/or supporters of the SNP are de-facing Bank of England £10 notes by writing on the Queen’s face with ‘Vote for SNP/ Scottish Independence’ electioneering messages. Commenting on this, Mark R. Whittet, Leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party and prospective British parliamentary candidate for the Edinburgh West seat in the UK general election on 8 June 2017, said: “Whilst Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party fully understands why members and/or sympathisers of the SNP appear to have chosen to spoil Bank of England £10 notes by writing election slogans supporting Scotland’s Independence

(Even though ‘now may not be the time’) Scotland still has the right to hold Scottish Independence vote when the Scot-government chooses

Commenting on the announcement today by Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to re-schedule a referendum on Scotland’s Independence until after the next Holyrood elections, Mark R Whittet, Leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum party, said: “Even though ‘now may not be the time’ for Scotland’s Independence referendum, but Scotland – still – has the right to hold this vote when the Scot-government (and people) chooses. “The general election outcome – skewed by an unfair and anti-democratic first past the post voting system – does nothing to alter the Scot-Government’s right and democratically-achieved mandate to hold the next referendum on Scotland’s Independence.

A Labour-led coalition to ‘remain in the EEC’ could yet make Corbyn prime minister

Question: Who won the British parliament election? Answer:  It is too early to tell – yet. Prima facie, everybody lost. No political party won and the people have been defrauded of a meaningful, effective government (whether in coalition or not) by a voting system manifestly not fit for purpose. By any measure of fairness and democracy, Jeremy Corbyn should now be prime minister, leading a Labour-led ‘soft Brexit’ coalition in Westminster with the SNP, Liberals and a Green. Even now, he could still achieve this simply by declaring victory – just like the British Empire so frequently did in the

Analysis: How British pro-union parties forgot about #ScotRef in the #GE17 campaign

PRO-UNION PARTIES in Scotland have spent much of the General Election campaigning against a second referendum in Scotland, but something is curiously absent. In March the Scottish Parliament already voted to request a referendum on Scottish independence from UK Government, where the power to hold a legal referendum resides. Scottish Tories, Labour, Lib Dems and Ukip all ignore parliamentary vote for #ScotRef   The parliament entered into this debate and vote on the basis of the Scottish elections in 2016, which saw the SNP win the most seats on a manifesto saying another referendum could be held on the basis of the UK

REAL NEWS: Scottish Independence website wins 480,000 unique visitors in May 2017 https://wingsoverscotland.com/not-too-shabby/#more-95600 … A spokesman for Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party commented: “Wings Over Scotland is where independently-minded people can get the ‘real news’ on Scottish politics rather than the fake news ‘newspapers’ and  ‘Mis-Reporting’ Scotland on BBC TV and radio. “And these visitor figures for Wings Over Scotland are the kind of viewing/ readership results that the London-based ‘mainstream’ ‘Scottish’ media would dearly love. “But it’s a fundamental rule of business, that – like the London-based ‘mainstream’ ‘Scottish’ media – if you insist on telling half your readers (or half of
