New podcast on Brexit, and charting the course towards a vote on independence

Just a quick note to let you know that I'm the guest on this week's edition of the Newsnet podcast, hosted as always by Derek Bateman.  The topics discussed include the symbolism of the already-legendary photo of Nicola Sturgeon signing her letter to Theresa May, the prospects for the forthcoming Brexit negotiations, and the possible ways forward if the Prime Minister continues to be intransigent over an independence referendum.  You can listen to the podcast HERE.

    Well. Well. Seems opponents of Scottish Indy were right about the Spanish veto after all. Just not about the country it would apply to.

  5. "Charting the course towards a vote on independence"

    I think it would be easier to navigate the Atlantic blind, in a storm, with one oar.

    Every legal avenue is blocked. The only option available - armed insurrection - isn't an option at all. By the time the UK government comes under international pressure to hold a referendum, the SNP will be a declining force in Scottish politics. Should you ever return to majority status, the oil will be gone and the country will have been asset stripped and filled full of non-Scots, just in case.

    It's over. Smell the block.
