I still haven't got round to actually sending in my submission to the Scottish government's referendum consultation, which is a great pity, because it's now going to look like I'm some kind of George Foulkes groupie. He's tabling an amendment to the Scotland Bill that is pretty much identical to one of the suggestions I made about a possible format for a two-question referendum that could deal with the (bogus) objections that have been raised about the idea -
"He said if people in Scotland voted for independence, there would be no need for another referendum.
But if the idea was rejected, then a second vote could be held about a month later to decide what extra devolution powers the country should have."
So George Foulkes talks sense for once. But the million dollar question - is he doing it deliberately?
