Comment posted Supreme Court finds for appellants on Named Persons by Intergrity?.

It is probably worth being clear that this will not stop it being implemented – it just means there will be some amendments to it. Amendments which could have been got to without a stack of cash wasted on legal battles if politicians could be a little more grown up and a little less obsessed with never admitting they don’t know everything.

  • Who is stating that it won’t go ahead, all be it in a revised form?
  • And they would have got away with it if it wasn’t for those pesky kids…

    (I’ll get my coat)

    The extent to which it is defective must be marginal if it got as far as appeals to the Supreme Court.

    Be interesting to see how much any revisions are actually material in terms of what is rolled out but my gut feeling is that they will be marginal and a lot of people happy at today’s ruling are going to be spitting blood.

  • My personal view on this is that we are better without the thumbs up and down. They don’t mean anything and they just clutter the page. I think they are more of a trivial facebook/twitter thing than something for a forum.

    You also get people who simply use them just because they don’t like the poster regardless of what they say. I am pretty sure if Malcolm or NCH posted a story about a lovely old lady being recognised for her lifetime commitment to helping retired guide dogs there would be someone petty enough to give it a thumbs down!

    However I appreciate people might like them.

    Like indy1 it was a campaign packed with untruths from both sides and it further demonstrated that our politicians will say anything to hoodwink the public to voting their way. We are already seeing the Remain camp back pedalling on two of the claims they pedalled relentlessly in order to get votes.

    I think you’re pessimistic in terms of the number of previous NO voters that this will swing. Hardly scientific I know but I have been very surprised at the number of friends of mine who have already said they will now vote yes, some of them who were staunch No voters before. However I’m not basing this view on what a few of my mates say! There is just an inherent logic that such an issue is bound to cause a degree of swing toward Yes and we know that swing doesn’t need to be substantial.

    Admittedly I might have misread your article Kieron. I thought you were suggesting a further referendum for the popylation of Scotland to determine their desire for a role in the EU, or otherwise. However on reading it again I think you might be suggesting something different.

    I don’t consider myself British, European or anything to be honest. Maybe because I’ve moved around a bit but I think more because I see nationalities and excessive national pride as a bit of an oddity. I think last night’s vote was a sad event from the perspective of people moving away from border restricted integration and tolerance.

    Whilst the Germany thing was different it does illustrate that the EU will find a way to implement special measures when it is deemed appropriate. I imagine that is what the SNP would be seeking.

    I doubt the rebate, or Scotland’s share of it, would be on the table though.

  • What now for Scotland?
    You make a fair point John. I suspect, and I’ll grant you its just a gut feeling, that the EU will be more sympathetic to Scotland’s case this time round than they would have been 18 months ago.

    Apologies for a stack of typos! Stubby fingers on small phone.
