It must have felt so good for Nicola Sturgeon when she decided to do a spoiler to overshadow the House of Lords vote, can you imagine the SNP strategists sitting there thinking they are doing a coup?
Well, within a short space of time and demonstrating that the SNP cannot work with
it all blew right up in Nicola Sturgeon’s face on many fronts.
Theresa May is considering saying no, people in the EU have killed stone dead any notion of a fast track membership, the SNP appear to be about to ditch the idea of EU membership in favour of ‘single market’ and the Scottish people, Nationalists and Unionists alike are angry about a second referendum.
Nationalists know they can’t win it, those with any sense, and Unionists are angry that yet again, the SNP plan to throw
into chaos and division, it will be much worse this time round.
If anyone thinks the nasty vicious campaign of indyref 1 run by the Nationalists and their ‘axis’ forces has been forgotten, they can think again.
A sign of the anger is expressed by a Petition to block a second Scottish referendum, in order to hit the 100,000 mark which can trigger a debate in Westminster, people have been signing up fast and furious, so far the 100k mark has been breached and we are heading towards 125,000. The timeframe of this sign up is absolutely staggering, the mark has been reached to trigger a debate and I can see this one going forward, and
Westminster marshalling its forces to allow
speaker after speaker to condemn the actions of the SNP leadership.
Nicola Sturgeon triggered her own downfall, which could be aptly titled, ‘a few days in March’.
The petition to say no to indyref 2 was started by Scottish resident John Innes, he appears to be on course to make a wee bit of history for himself, the title of the petition?
‘Another Scottish independence referendum should not be allowed to happen’
In the bumf, he wrote:
are fed up of persecution by the SNP leader who is solely intent on getting
independence at any cost. As a result, Scotland is suffering hugely”.
A GP practice in where Doctors say at their Ayrshire GP practice that things are so bad due to “impossible" funding that they have no option but to announce plans to close the surgery.
This is the type of thing which Shona Robison should have dealt with and sorted out, what the hell is going on in her portfolio? This incident brings me to something which I have historically said that the Scottish Government needs reformed; it needs deputies in key government departments.
We already know that a bad job is being done, so obviously more help is need to get
NHS back on its feet. Where is that help to come from if it isn’t from reformed
Everything in life isn’t about independence!
Despite vastly exceeding the 10,000 signatures required for a Government response,
Downing Street have not
yet commented on the petition.
Just as the public are thoroughly unimpressed by so are the politicians in
Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson said:
“The First Minister’s problem is she has no mandate for a second independence referendum.
“She lost her majority in Parliament, the people of Scotland have said time and time again that they do not want to be dragged back into the division of another referendum. She’s trying to convert votes like mine, which were for Remain in the EU referendum, into votes for another independence referendum. The people of
are angry at the First Minister today because she is not speaking for Scotland.”
The point about Sturgeon using Unionist Remain votes for brought up yesterday by someone at the Scotland in Union event, Sturgeon has no right to attempt to hijack other people’s democratic vote for her own ends.
At present at time of writing this post today the number of people signing up to say no to a second independence referendum in
standing at just under the 125,000 signature mark.
Finally, a new survey has revealed that anti-EU feeling is on the rise in Scotland and that Sturgeon’s plans to leave the UK to rejoin the failed EU project will put voters off independence. The ScotCen annual Scottish social attitudes survey found that two in three Scots (67 per cent) either want Britain to leave the EU (25 per cent) or for the EU’s powers to be reduced (42 per cent).
George Laird is 2-2 in referendums wins, people expect me to get it right every single time, there is no expectation of that type of political understanding with Nicola Sturgeon!
She sits on 0-2 in losses.
