Nice to hear that Webcraft thinks that NTA …

Comment posted No Tiree Array campaigners play the Trump card by robtrythall.

Nice to hear that Webcraft thinks that NTA ” may well
have a case ” but NTA has been addressing the issues of environmental and economic damage arising from Scot Govt off shore windfarm proposals,long before D Trump realised there was an issue here.

With respect to Webcraft, NTA is not linking itself to D Trump .

NTA might suggest that Webcraft’S use of word like ” “obnoxious ” and ” claptrap” would suggest that Webcraft may be intolerant of any opinion contrary to his own.

The issues Trump refers to merit national debate . NTA has been asking for that debate. Scotland requires that debate.

    In case you are too lazy to check out the latest YouGov poll here is the link:-

    http://d25d2506sfb94s.cloudfront.net/cumulus_uploads/document/lbzcm2uume/ScotlandintheUnionResults_160725_ScottishIndependence_W.pdf

    It is not rocket science to work out:- (a)there is near as damn it NO desire for Indyref(2), (b)marginally more Scots want a UK deal with the EU rather than a separate Scottish deal with the EU and (c) however you juggle the figures, Nicola Sturgeon cannot be confident of winning any Indyref(2)

    From all her pronouncements since Brexit, Nicola S conforms to YouGov’s finding that the largest section of Scottish opinion is that Scotland should wait until the UK’s deal with the EU is clear,
    and then decide whether to have a referendum.

    As Alex S has said EU clarity on UK’s deal could take 4-7years to be negotiated, any Indyref(2) could be a long time coming ,if ever.

    Once more you manifest your comprehension issues. Unless Scottish Govt has the required Act of UK Parliament to hold an Independence Referendum, then Scottish Govt would be attempting to declare UDI , which would be self defeating.

    Nicola S is more cautious than her rhetoric, which has obviously whipped you and your fellow SNP zealots into an Independence Feeding Frenzy. Scottish opinion may have shifted a wee bit but not enough to make separation a certainty. She has indicated she needs to see a consistent 60% poll for Independence over a 12 month period before she will consider Indy ref(2). Independence is an even harder sell than it was at the referendum in 2014. Brexit has destroyed the SNP’s original shaky currency plan. The absence of a credible economic strategy is glaring when oil revenues are plummeting. Brent looks as if it may fall below $40. Funding Scotland’s deficit is UK dependent with by UK fiscal transfers worth more than 5 per cent of gross domestic product. To qualify for EU membership an Independent Scotland ,according to George Kerevan SNP MP, would have at least 5 yrs of self- inflicted draconian austerity (Note Kereven is the SNP’s member of the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee) .

    The evidence of the witnesses at today’s special sitting of Holyrood’s European Committee suggests Brexit may be a net advantage to Scotland.

    Not exactly what Nicola S wanted to hear.It would make any rational Scottish first minister pause!!.

    But back to the Supreme Court’s Judgement,it now leaves Scottish Govt to try and make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear

    You obviously have comprehension issues so here is the link to the full judgement .

    https://www.supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-2015-0216.html

    It is an excoriating judgement on the quality of Scottish Govt’s legislation.

    As for returning “to Sovereignty ‘ ..in the absence of a referendum and then winning such a referendum , it aint gonna happen.

    ‘ First Minister has the support of Holyrood’ … yeah ..but so what? She and Holyrood have not committed to Indyref(2) for very obvious reasons(1) she may lose it and (2) she hasn’t a clue what credible EU options she can offer an Independent Scotland.

    She now has to accept the currency reality for an Independent Scotland ie no sterling union, and setting up Scottish Central/Reserve Bank , without which, Brussels would send her away ,to think again.

    Until she comes up with tangible currency and reserve Bank scenarios, Nicola S , and the SNP, are merely blowing hot air, and boring us with their humbug.
