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

With Alex Salmond, it’s simply Common Sense* for a Scottish Independence supermajority

The first thing we did after I launched Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party in April 2017 was to write and publish an Open Letter to the SNP (led by N. Sturgeon) inviting her to form a progressive alliance with SIRP  – so as to maximise the Scottish Independence vote using the otherwise useless 1 million wasted Vote-2 SNP list votes in favour of  our Vote-2-Indy list party. https://bit.ly/3w0sk9G The logic for this was so glaring that even the politically blind could have seen it. But the SNP was then (and still is now) politically blind. The SNP/Sturgeon (lack of) logic was

Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party urges Nicola Sturgeon to form ‘Vote-1 SNP, Vote-2 Indy-list’ voting pact for super-majority of pro-Scottish Independence MSPs in Scottish Parliament – before she’s sacked

  OPEN LETTER Dear Nicola, Five years ago, when I set up Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party (www.SiRP.Scot) I wrote to you with an open offer to the SNP to join us in a progressive alliance to maximise the number of pro-Indy SNP and Indy-list MSPs to the Scottish Parliament. This is because of the thousands of ‘wasted’ SNP second preference votes in the proportional representation system used to elect MSPs to Scotland’s Parliament. As a result of the SNP’s dominant lead in the first-preference vote, the party won most of the constituency seats in Holyrood in 2016. But at the

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

SNP should offer to back May’s British Brexit in return for Westminster’s permission to hold second Scottish Independence Referendum

We tell’t ye so. See update 13 December 2020 The Glorious Failures Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party (SIRP) today urges the SNP to back a British Brexit in return for Westminster’s permission to hold a second Scottish Independence Referendum. Mark R Whittet (LLB, BA) Leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party (SIRP), said: “Such an offer from the SNP would have many political and economic benefits for Scotland. “It would end the ‘not now’ uncertainty which prime minister Theresa May said in her first refusal to the Scottish Government’s last request to hold a second Scottish Independence Referendum. “And by supporting the Tories

Spain’s extradition of Catalan Independence minister from Scotland under European Arrest Warrant is same sleekit anti-independence tactic used by UK against Gandhi and India

                      Following today’s court hearing on the above in Edinburgh today, Mark R Whittet (LLB, BA) leader of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party, said:  “Although SNP leader and Scot-Govt First Minister Sturgeon cannot legally intervene in Spain’s anti-democratic European Arrest Warrant against Catalan Independence leader Carla Ponsati, Sturgeon should nevertheless publicly denounce Spain for oppressing the Catalan independence mandate.  “Sturgeon should now  – like Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party –  draw the very clear parallel conclusion with Westminster’s delaying tactic in preventing Scotland  from holding the Brexit-changed Scottish Independence Referendum-2, which also illegally denies the Scottish Independence
